Do you know when musicians do their best work? When they’ve got someone to hate, that’s when.
Biggie Vs 2Pac, Nas Vs Jay Z and now… Katy Perry Vs motherfucking Taylor Swift. Who’s going to be the real winner in this one? The listeners, that’s who. You and me. So get ready world because shit is about to go down in what will prove to be probably the most vicious music industry beef in history.
Here’s what went down — in an interview with Rolling Stone this week, Swift suggested that an angry song on her album named ‘Bad Blood’ was about a fellow female artist, and went into detail without actually naming anyone. A bunch of people put the clues together and suggested she was talking about Katy Perry, which Katy pretty much went on to confirm.
Taylor Swift said:
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.
Wow, that is awkward. Katy Perry then pulled this classic fake subliminal bitch move:
Watch out for the Regina George in sheep’s clothing…

Boom, roasted. Katy Perry clearly learnt a thing or two in the art of Twitter war from her beef with Chief Keef last year. We’re not going to take sides just yet but definitely keeping a close eye for when this passive aggressive bitch fest turns into all out Armageddon.
Look at them pretending to be BFFs over the years – girls will be girls I suppose:
