Taylor Swift–Katy Perry feud seems real

SHARE Taylor Swift–Katy Perry feud seems real

Taylor Swift and Katy Perry in happier days — or maybe they were just smiling for the camera?

It looks like superstars Taylor Swift and Katy Perry — long rumored to strongly dislike each other — now are in the midst of full-blown feud.

The latest escalation of the situation started with an interview Swift gave Rolling Stone in which she described an unnamed “enemy” celebrity — claiming that person was the inspiration for her new song “Bad Blood.”

“For years 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 me.”

It appears that the “horrible” thing that happened was when Perry attempted to snare several of Swift’s backup dancers away from her. As for the”guy” reference, it should be noted both Swift and Perry have dated John Mayer, who Swift dissed with that now infamous “Dear John” song.

Meanwhile, Perry took to Twitter early Tuesday to post this: “Watch out for the Regina George in sheep’s clothing…” — a telling reference to the meanest of the meanies in “Mean Girls.”

For now, Swift says she’s on her guard. “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.”
