The Internet Chooses Sides in the Taylor Swift-Katy Perry Feud
Add one more to the list of celebrity feuds involving Taylor Swift: Katy Perry.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, the “Shake It Off” singer spills on one particular song from her upcoming 1989 album, “Bad Blood,” which was written about another (unnamed) female artist. She says, “For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not. 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?’ [Then last year] she did something so horrible. I was like, ‘Oh, we’re just straight-up enemies.’ And it wasn’t even about a guy! It had to do with business. She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me. And I’m surprisingly non-confrontational — you would not believe how much I hate conflict. So now I have to avoid her. It’s awkward, and I don’t like it.”
Since it’s being reported that some of Taylor’s backup dancers left her tour a few years back to work with Katy, it makes a lot of sense. And then Katy all but confirmed the public’s suspicions:
Watch out for the Regina George in sheep's clothing…
