Katy Perry might be one of the world’s most followed people on social media but it seems the singer isn’t really loving this form of human interaction.

The Roar singer made her feelings clear in a series of tweets on Wednesday as she vented her frustrations on Twitter.

‘Social media is trash,’ the 36-year-old singer began, before she then added: ‘the decline of human civilization #ISaidWhatISaid.’

Tell ’em how you really feel, Katy!

It’s not exactly clear what prompted the American Idol judge to sound off about social media but it isn’t the first time she’s shared similar thoughts.

In 2017, she tweeted that she ‘can’t wait till Instagram culture is over so we can all be ourselves again.’

The Dark Horse singer once told Refinery29: ‘A lot of us are living for that picture, and then the currency is the like. It’s hard because I’d rather not care about that and just live my life.

‘We buy clothing and products or pose a certain way or go to an event to get a picture—it’s not good for us as a society. I think it’s actually the decline of civilization if we’re going extreme about it.’

She continued: ‘We have to find a balance, and I’m trying to find my own personal balance with it because I’m just as much a victim as everybody else.’

Despite her issues with social media, the singer is loved for the way she interacts with fans and the world through her various accounts.

Digital consumer intelligence company Brandwatch recently reported that Katy’s Instagram account secures the top 20 spot for most followers.

Elsewhere, her Twitter account is the third most followed on the platform.
