And now for something lighter in celebrity news: the Katy Perry and Taylor Swift feud is still 100% on, which is the equivalent of your wannabe eccentric, newly woke aunt arguing with your spoiled, intense millennial sister over Sunday dinner. It’s just weird and sad, you know?
A few years back, Taylor Swift released the horrible song “Bad Blood” that not even Kendrick Lamar could make listenable. The song was allegedly a jab at Katy, so being the spoiled popular girl she is, Taylor filled the completely stupid and nonsensical video with all her hot celeb friends, as a sort of “Nah nah nah nah nah” to Katy. Literally too fucking stupid and junior high to handle.
Flash forward three years and Katy has finally responded with an equally stupid and only moderately more listenable song, “Swish Swish” featuring Nicki Minaj, because nothing says “I’m a mature grown ass woman” like making a Taylor Swift diss track (though I get why you would).
Katy FINALLY spoke openly about the feud with James Corden saying that this whole ghetto, millennium Bette Davis/Joan Crawford 2.0 thing began when Katy unknowingly stole two dancers from Taylor’s tour who opted to go do Katy’s tour instead.
Katy claims that once she realized what had happened, she reached out to Taylor:
I tried to talk to her about it and she wouldn’t speak to me…I do the right thing any time that it feels like a fumble. It was a full showdown 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! Now, there is the law of cause and effect. You do something, there’s going to be a reaction, and trust me daddy, there’s going to be a reaction. It’s all about karma, right? I think personally that women together, not divided, and none of this petty bullshit, women together will heal the world.
Katy, Katy, Katy, while I totally agree that Taylor Swift is clearly a heinous real life Regina George who just happens to write catchy pop tunes, don’t come at me about how petty you think this bullshit it when you’re engaging in it.
Like, why can’t you two bitches stop acting like a couple of 12-year-olds at school dance who BOTH dated Brad and need to make sure all your friends know how much of a skank the other is? You’re both grown ass women. Do the normal thing and drunkenly bad mouth each other to your friends and ignore each other at the Vanity Fair Oscar party. Jesus.
Also, even though Katy Perry bugs the shit out of me, I have always been on her side in this whole thing, until she performed on SNL this past weekend and this happened:
Just go watch the full performance if you haven’t. Fucking painful.
