Katy Perry Def Just Shaded Taylor Swift During an American Idol Audition
If you thought the ongoing feud between Taylor Swift and Katy Perry has finally simmered down, you may want to refill the popcorn following a recent American Idol audition that had KP serving some serious shade.
It’s hard to imagine a world where Taylor and Katy weren’t feuding, considering four years have passed since Taylor told Rolling Stone that she and Katy had a conflict with backup dancers. “She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour,” she revealed to the magazine. “She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me.”
Three years after that, Katy opened up to James Corden, saying that Taylor started the feud and refused to hash things out. “I tried to talk to her about it and she wouldn’t speak to me,” Katy admitted. “I do the right thing any time that it feels like a fumble. It was a full shutdown and then she writes a song about me, and I’m like, ‘OK, cool, cool, cool. That’s how you want to deal with it? Karma!'”
The feud simmered down last summer, however some of Katy’s comments on the new American Idol — on which she’s currently a judge on — are making people think the feud is still going strong. Last night, during an audition on the show, one contestant was asked who he looked up to as a musical artist, and this is what went down shortly after:

Rather than also agreeing that she loves Tay, Katy replied to the contestant, “I love her as a songwriter, as well!” But this isn’t the only time Katy potentially shaded Taylor this season; some people thought Katy’s response to fellow judge Luke Bryan using Taylor’s lyric, “This is why we can’t have nice things,” was also a slight jab at the “Delicate” singer.
Your move, Tay!
