How can I open my phone when an app keeps on blocking?

My Alcatel-one touch phone is always full even if I have a micro SIM in it. what I do is always clear data from running apps from time to time so I can use it again. last key action I did was open my spinner music app and when I closed it, a pop-up window suddenly appeared with this note... UNFORTUNATELY, SPINNR MUSIC HAS STOPPED. even if I press OK, still it will appear. I also restarted my phone and after that, it is still there... I can't open my phone... that app is blocking.... I have tried: I can open my phone by timing... I press OK and quickly press on the app that I need to view but not always successful, takes time, though. for every key action, I need to press on OK that is always there appearing on the screen, the pop-up window. I think it was caused by: Can't think of any
