Pop star thinks selfies are a ‘disease’


Singer Katy Perry has taken to Twitter to blast the art of taking selfies.

The singer, who is currently letting her hair down at California music festival Coachella, tweeted, “Dear festival friends, remember selfing is a disease.”


Katy was apparently posing for photographers at Harpers Bazaar’s private pool party when she was asked to take a selfie with another guest.

The 28-year-old singer reportedly refused at first and then spoke out against the popular trend before agreeing to a picture.

Katy then vented her frustrations via Twitter.

Comedienne Amy Poehler has also recently spoken out against the trend saying, “The amount of Instagram selfies is out–of–control.”

She added, “Pictures were an addition to the experience. Now the picture is the experience. If I’m hanging out with a friend, and they take a picture of me, it’s like ‘Ugh.’ I mean, I hate looking at pictures of myself. It immediately takes me out of the experience.”
