Insiders have revealed that Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood song is allegedly about Katy Perry. Since Swift revealed to Rolling Stone magazine that she had penned the ballad, and it was about her intense competitiveness with another female singer, conjecture had been running rampant over whom the artist might be. Miley Cyrus was mentioned as a prospect however most fans believe the song was aimed directly at Perry, age 29. Now numerous sources are stating that those fans have probably been correct in their thinking.
Perry herself helped flame the assumptions when she sent out a tweet written over an unidentified female a day after Swift’s Rolling Stone’s story was made known. She stated for everyone to be on the look-out for “Regina George in sheep’s clothing.” Katy was making a reference to the character that Rachel McAdams played in the movie Mean Girls. An insider spoke to several different media sources and said that Katy believes Swift’s song is all about her and that is why she put up that specific tweet. The insider also said that each singer is noted for being extremely competitive with each other and that the companion stars used to be at least cordial to each another but that they never had any type of true friendship between either one of them.
Swift herself told Rolling Stone that she was not even sure where she had stood with the nameless female she was talking about in the Bad Blood song until fairly recently. She explained that for years she had never been for sure if the two of them were actually friends or not. Swift, age 24, declared that this other person would walk up to her at various awards shows and say something to Taylor and then walk away. Swift described that she would then ponder about the remark and wonder if she and the other female were actually friends, or had the other girl just given her the worst insult of her life?
Taylor next explained that in 2013 this other girl ended up doing something very terrible and that was when Swift realized they were “straight-up enemies. And it wasn’t even about a guy!” However that statement has some insiders wondering since both Taylor and Katy dated singer Mayer, and Swift also confessed later in her interview with Rolling Stone that there could have been some sort of “personal” element to the conflict between her and the other female.
However she said that the foremost cause of tension between the two was business. Swift explained that the other person essentially tried to sabotage a whole arena tour of hers. Swift alleged that the other woman attempted to hire “a bunch of people out from under me.”
The individuals who Taylor was talking about, from the various sources who spoke, were her back-up dancers. They were people who had first worked for Perry and had remained loyal to Katy. When it was time for Perry to start her Prism tour, they went back to work for her, explained the insiders. She never stole them from Swift. Taylor had just employed them while they were not working for Katy.
However the fans who thought Swift was talking about Cyrus were not far off. Taylor’s relationship with Miley is also not good, stated the insiders. They do not get along but Cyrus is not the focus of the song. Regardless, the two of them are also competitive with one another. Even so, insiders have let it be known that Swift’s Bad Blood song is allegedly about Katy Perry.
