The "Baby One More Time" hitmaker has finally responded, and chose to take the high road instead of waging a war of insults. Britney took to Instagram on Tuesday to clap back at Perry with a bible verse.
A post shared by Britney Spears (@britneyspears) on
Spears shared a photo on social media that showed a serene sunset and posted it with the caption: "Her mouth speaks from that which fills her heart [heart emoji] Luke 6:45."
"What a classy way to put someone in their place!!!!" one fan tweeted.
"She's so humble and descreet, a queen," another fan wrote.
In case you missed it, Katy Perry was talking with E!'s Ryan Seacrest when she made the following comments.
Seacrest said to the "Roar singer, "There was a pause in the music for a little while."
"Yeah, that's called taking care of your mental health," Katy said in response.
"How'd that go?" Seacrest asked.
"Fantastic! And I haven't shaved my head yet," Perry said jokingly.
Even though the 32-year-old musician made the comment in jest, many of Britney's fans found it to be insulting.
"Katy Perry just made ANOTHER dig at Britny Spears shaving her head on CBS!!!" one fan said.
"I just lost all my respect for Katy Perry, well the little respect I did have for her," another user wrote.
"I'm so proud of it," she said. "I think it's a new era of me. I call it an era of purposeful thought. All of my songs have always had layers to them. I used to be kind of the queen of innuendos and I woke up and educated myself more and I think I'm maybe more than queen of subtext and I think it's a song that starts conversations."
