Katy Perry has lashed out at the paparazzi

Katy Perry has lashed out at "unethical" paparazzi for invading her and her family's privacy.

The Roar singer, who performed By The Grace Of God as an anti-violence anthem at the Grammy Awards, took to Twitter to voice her opinions about photographers who take pictures outside her home without her consent.

"Remember internet it's literally ILLEGAL to post pictures of me at my house w/my family that unethical paparazzi have taken on long lenses," she wrote.

She added that the unofficial images shouldn't be shared either, posting: "Any distribution or purchase of these type of photos anywhere is extremely against my will & is an endangerment to me & my family's privacy."

Katy was up for two Grammy gongs - best pop duo/group performance for Dark Horse and best album for Prism - but lost out to A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera and Sam Smith.
