Paparazzi beware: If you push Katy Perry too far, she might tweet your headshot and call you a stalker.

That’s what happened to some Australian paparazzi who wouldn’t leave Perry alone during her recent Prismatic World Tour dates Down Under. The pop singer tweeted photos of three “perverted & disgusting” photographers who she says followed her on the beach asking for bathing suit shots.

“I was stalked by many grown men today as I tried to take a quiet walk to the beach,” she wrote. “They told me to make a ‘deal’ with them. Give them a bathing suit show and they would leave me be.”

That obviously didn’t happen. “I will NEVER make a deal with paparazzi and I will not befriend anyone who perpetuates this kind of behavior,” Perry continued.

Perry isn’t the only female music star who’s had trouble with the paparazzi lately. In October, Iggy Azalea was caught on camera getting into a fight with a paparazzo at a California grocery store after he asked the rapper is she had Ebola.
