Crystal Castles have let it be known exactly what they think of Katy Perry - and to put it mildly, they definitely aren't her biggest fans.

The band are shocked by her sexualised routines and whipped cream bra, and have expressed particular disgust with the fact that she markets herself to children.

Speaking to NME, singer Alice Glass said, "I think a lot of (pop stars) sell sex to children. I think a lot of kids are more sexualised now than they were years ago and I'm not sure it's a coincidence.

"Like f**king Katy Perry spraying people with her f**king d**k, her f**king c** gun c**ming on f**king children. And little girls, like six-year-old girls wearing a shirt with 'I wanna see your (pea) cock' on it."

Keyboard player Ethan Kath agreed with his bandmate, saying, ""On the merch (merchandise) for that song Peacock, the 'Pea' is on a different line so you don't see it. She sells it to f**king children."

And Glass wasn't finished with her rant, as she added, "It's f**king evil. Don't prey on vulnerable people like that.

"Don't encourage little girls to get dressed up, to have cupcakes on their t**s to get people to lick them off, 'cos that's what you're insinuating."


Katy Perry: Hopefully not 'selling sex' to these girls on The Ellen Show, then.

This is far from the first time that Katy Perry has been criticised for her antics. Earlier this year, stand up comic Sarah Kendall also expressed her distaste at the singer's sexualised videos.

The Australian comedienne told Stylist: "There's a whole generation of women who don't care about feminism.

"A lot of younger women think 'lezzing off' for the boys is equal rights. It's not!

"Little girls are obsessed with Katy Perry. Her videos are full of phallic symbolism; liquid shooting out of tubes, lollipops, hairbrushes by the mouth. It all looks very BJ..."

And check out the most sexualised videos - from Katy's cream to Azealia's sausage

  • Katy Perry 'California Gurls': Katy Perry's cream explosion in retaliation to Snoop Dogg is one of music's finest food porn moments. No question.

  • Tenacious D 'Low Hanging Fruit': Nice melons.

  • Take That 'Do What U Like': In one of Take That's earliest video, the five-piece boyband were seen smearing each other in jelly and cream.

  • Rihanna 'Only Girl (In The World)', X Factor: A shocked Dermot O'Leary struggled to interview Rihanna after her 2010 X Factor performance as her backing dancers hurled their dinner at one another in the background.

  • Bonde Do Role 'Kilo': In a spectacular 2012 comeback, Bonde Do Role's new track sees the band perform with instruments cover in fruit - while men play carnival games - which include hurling fruit at barely-dressed ladies.

  • Travis 'Sing': Not food-porn as such (unless posh people covered in soup is your thing), but this is a classic food fight video.

  • Azealia Banks 'Liquorice': The pop-rapper made fast-food sexy in her Wild West themed video for second single.

  • Simian Mobile Disco 'Hustler': Underrated dance duo turned food-porn into something dark in this spectaular video which left a bad taste in the mouth.

  • Jessie J 'Nobody's Perfect': A sad excuse for a food fight, Jessie J is less than impressed with the rat-infested mess she is left with at the end of her third solo video.

  • Lil Kim: It's not always easy to make food look sexy, as rapper Lil Kim found in 2010 when she visited a milkshake parlour in the US.

  • Lady Gaga 'Cake': Taking things literally in the video for her 'Cake Like Lady Gaga' track, the oddball megastar risks crumbs in her cracks by rolling around in a giant cake. What a waste of a good pudding.
