THE Taylor Swift vs. Katy Perry fight might be one of the longest and most infamous feuds to come out of the realm of celebrities. While the two have never directly addressed their alleged feud, there’s been plenty of shading and plenty of alluding to it in interviews.
And, Perry’s recent interview with Entertainment Weekly is the closest the singer has ever come to addressing the bad blood between the two singers. When the publication asked the Chained to the Rhythm singer point blank whether or not she though Swift’s song Bad Blood was about her, she decided to respond.
“That’s not my question to answer – if it’s about me. I think [my new album is) a very empowered record. There is no one thing that’s calling out any one person,” Perry said.
Perry then seemed to issue a warning to people who try to target her.
“One thing to note is: You can’t mistake kindness for weakness and don’t come for me. Anyone. Anyone. Anyone. Anyone. And that’s not to any one person and don’t quote me that it is, because it’s not.
It’s not about that. Honestly, when women come together and they decide to unite, this world is going to be a better place. Period end of story,” she added.
Perry instead deflected questions about her alleged feud and denied thinking the infamous Swift song was about her.
“But, let me say this: Everything has a reaction or a consequence so don’t forget about that, okay, honey. (Laughs) We got to keep it real, honey.
This record is not about anyone else! This record is about me being seen and heard so that I can see and hear everyone else! It’s not even about me! It’s about everything that I see out there that I digest.
I think there’s a healing in it for me and vulnerability. If people want to connect and be healed and feel vulnerable and feel empowered and strong, God bless and here it is,” she told Entertainment Weekly.
The Perry Swift feud has been ongoing for a number of years, ever since Taylor Swift sat down with Rolling Stone in 2014 to explain who her song Bad Blood was about.
“For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not,” Swift said.
“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) 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 added. The business thing came down to each singer’s dancers for their tour.
“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 nonconfrontational – 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.” A day after Swift’s comments, Katy Perry tweeted a reference to Mean Girls.
Watch out for the Regina George in sheep's clothing…
