The Maroon 5 singer posted cryptic tweets on the social networking site in which he blasted an anonymous star for ''recycling old art'' rather than producing original music.
He wrote: ''Ugh..recycling old art for a younger generation doesn't make you an artist. It makes you an art teacher ... I unabashedly love writing and performing pop music for both myself AND everyone around me. That's It. It doesn't need any extra sauce.''
While he didn't name anyone, the 'Applause' hitmaker took offence to the tweets and sent out a message to her own followers seemingly in response to the 'Moves Like Jagger' star.
She said: ''Uh oh guys the art police is here.''
