Katy Perry Reveals the Reason Behind Her Feud With Taylor Swift
During The Late Late Show Carpool Karaoke Primetime Special 2017, Katy Perry joined James Corden in the car to sing a few of her greatest hits. What Corden probably didn’t expect, however, was his question about her “bad blood” with Taylor Swift to get such an extensive answer.
Perry went on to say, “And I tried to talk to her about it, and she wouldn’t speak to me… It was a full shut down, and then she writes a song about me, and I’m like, ‘Okay, cool, cool, cool, that’s how you want to deal with it?'”
You know, maybe these two might make for a fun couple. On Sunday (Apr. 19, 2017), Ryan Phillippe tweeted an emphatic denial that he and Katy Perry were dating, and yesterday (Apr. 10, 2017) she responded to the rumors with her own tweets.
For those unfamiliar, the kerfuffle started over a handful of backup dancers that moved from Taylor Swift’s tour to Katy Perry’s, and it snowballed from there. Swift has all but confirmed that she wrote “Bad Blood” about Perry, and Perry’s new song “Swish Swish” is believed to be the latest clapback in the feud.
“Karma!” Katy Perry continued, “What I want to say is that, like, I’m ready for that BS to be done. Now, there is the law of cause and effect. You do something, and there is going to be a reaction. And trust me, daddy, there’s going to be a reaction.”
Perry managed to finish on a positive note though, reminding the audience that women pulling together is what matters at the end of the day.
“I think personally that women together, not divided — and like none of this petty sh-t — women together will heal the world.”
