6 Musicians Who Dissed Their Famous Former Friend… in a Song
We know we can get pretty worked up over celebrity couple breakups. Robert Pattinson & Kristen Stewart, Ian Somerhalder & Nina Dobrev, Zac Efron & Vanessa Hudgens… The list could go on and on. But, sometimes, there are some things that we get even more worked up over: celebrity best friend breakups.
The rift between lifelong BFFs Selena Gomez & Demi Lovato hurt us on a personal level, as did the feud between Louis Tomlinson & Zayn Malik. But, in their cases, at least there aren’t any hateful songs written about the drama. (Though, there were rumors about Louis penning a One Direction tune about Zayn’s betrayal.) Yeah… that is so NOT the case in these particular instances. Here are six musicians who dissed their famous former friend in a song:
SONG: "Bad Blood"
FORMER FRIEND: Katy Perry
"Did you think we'd be fine? // Still got scars in my back from your knife // So don't think it's in the past // These kind of wounds they last and they last"
Katy allegedly stole Taylor's backup dancers — that's what their entire feud is reportedly based on! (Though, we sense that their shared ex-boyfriend, John Mayer, had something to do with it, too.)
"For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not," Taylor said in an interview with Rolling Stone. "She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, 'Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?'"
"I tried to talk to her about it, and she wouldn't speak to me," KP recalled on a 2017 edition of Carpool Karaoke with James Corden. "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, 'Okay, cool, cool, cool, that's how you want to deal with it? Karma!'"
