Taylor Swift recently revealed that she and another female singer ‘are straight-up enemies’ … and the female singer in question is reportedly Katy Perry.
In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Swift disclosed that her new song Bad Blood was not about a dude, but a female singer who tried to sabotage her tour by hiring her employees.
‘For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not,’ she told the magazine. ‘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, the other star crossed a line,’ she continued. ‘She did something so horrible, I was like, “Oh, we’re just straight-up enemies.”‘
She added, ‘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.’
‘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.’
Now it has been revealed that Swift was talking about Katy Perry in the interview. According to several sources, the feud started a year ago when three of Taylor’s dancers – who have worked for Perry years before – decided to join Perry’s tour.
The dancers had reportedly told Swift of their intentions 30 days after Perry went on tour, but the enraged singer – who had become close to them and even considered them family – fired them on the spot … and has since then resented Perry, who she believes tried to sabotage her tour.
The deep resentment was what inspired Taylor to pen down Bad Blood.
In apparent response to Swift’s interview, Perry tweeted on Tuesday, ‘Watch out for the Regina George in sheep’s clothing…’ which is a reference to the meanest girl in the 2004 movie Mean Girls.
