Katy Perry Takes Aim At Taylor Swift In New ‘Billboard’ Interview

Published: Saturday 31st Jan 2015 by David


It seems Nicki Minaj isn’t the only one set to rain on Taylor Swift’s PR parade.

For, after she was accused of having Swift’s pal Selena Gomez booted from her management company, Katy Perry has taken to Billboard magazine to spill the beans on her long-running feud with the ‘1989‘ singer, threatening to expose anyone who dares to defame her.

Last year, fans of the Pop purveyors learned of their feud when it emerged Taylor had penned a cut about Ms. Perry.

Its name? ‘Bad Blood‘, reportedly written after Katy allegedly poached the ‘I Knew You Were Trouble‘ singer’s dancers to complete her latest live show.

According to reports, Taylor was infuriated and used the song as her way to get back at her ‘Teenage Dream’ rival, hitting her with:

Band-aids don’t fix bullet holes
You say sorry just for show
If you live like that, you live with ghosts
Band-aids don’t fix bullet holes
You say sorry just for show
If you live like that, you live with ghosts
If you love like that, blood runs cold

Now, after her rumoured love interest Diplo slammed Swift’s off-camera antics here, Katy has taken matters into her own hands and issued a warning to anyone out to ruin her reputation.

Billboard reports:

Pop fans tend to pit female stars against each other: Madonna vs. Lady Gaga, Gaga vs. Perry, and lately, Perry vs. Taylor Swift. That last beef has been fought through magazine profiles and subtweets without either explicitly naming the other. In 2014, for instance, Swift described a fellow female musician as her “straight-up enemy” who tried to “sabotage [Swift’s] entire arena tour.” The next day Perry tweeted, “Watch out for the Regina George in sheep’s clothing,” a reference to Mean Girls that everyone took to be about Swift. Asked about it now, Perry only says, “If somebody is trying to defame my character, you’re going to hear about it.

Will Taylor “clap back”? That remains to be seen. However, one thing is for certain. Come February 1st, all eyes will be on the ‘One of the Boys’ belle when she rocks the Super Bowl XLIX’s halftime show!

      There music is better than your favs that’s why it actually charts

      • Beyhulu January 31, 2015

        How dare you compare this slore to Bey.

      • hivehighness January 31, 2015

        U can’t be a jazzy fan making comments like that

      • Ciara the Flop January 31, 2015

        It must be cold and lonely to be a Jazmine Sullivan stan.

      • Tragic January 31, 2015

        Beyonce and Mariah… 🙁

        B****, die! Everyone knows R&B is struggling. If Beyonce wanted to make cheap POP tunes she would but why compromise your artistry for a chart position that doesn’t even matter? She’s in ICON mode.. So even if she gets a #1 or a messily #52 she will always be known as BEYONCE… QUEEN…. LEGEND… ICON. Can the same be said about Katy, Taylor Swift, Rihanna and Lady Gaga? Beyonce has fans in every age group. All the aforementioned artist reference her as an influence. So what you talking about? Beyonce been dominated the charts. She had 3 singles that has occupied the number #1 spot on the hot 100 charts over 7 weeks. Has any of them had multiple singles to do so? Taylor Swift singles are low key struggling and by time March comes, 1989 will be a thing of the past, just because its cheap tunes have a shelf life. She’s a novelty artist. Katy Perry is a gimmick. “DARK HORSE” was a surprisingly successful single for Katy and her team. What about the other singles that followed? Belly flopped… am I right? So… In conclusion, Beyonce doesn’t have to prove herself to some 20 year old pop tarts. This is year 18… 2 decades in… slaying and staying afloat in a position many thought she wouldn’t be able to retain. So get back to me when your girls cross their first decade because at this point, the b/s you’re spewing holds no wait when the real facts are presented.

    “There music is better than your favs that’s why it actually charts”
    First of all, it’s “their”!!! Second: why hasn’t Katy got a Grammy??? Third: who has the fastest selling album on itunes??? Fourth: the last US r&b multi platinum album since BEYONCE was I Am… And Finally: STFU

    • Ciara the Flop January 31, 2015

      Because Grammys are bought and your fave was desperate to buy 17 in order to boost her self-esteem.

      • Lobe January 31, 2015

        No one buys GRAMMYs you dimwit. The age old tale.

  3. Diamond Princess January 31, 2015

    Like seriously?! Half of these ppl I didn’t even know had a feud with each other. I guess b/c it was so childish it wasn’t even worth noticing. I like Katy but why are you like 30 fighting with a 25 year old? Do better!

    • musicMatters101 January 31, 2015

      That’s not a large gap at all. Try harder. There are sibling gaps much larger than that and they fight! Not saying its even a legit fight.

      • Diamond Princess January 31, 2015

        Yea actually it is! That’s half a decade. You must be OLD to take offense. That’s like you’re a freshman in College fighting with an 8th grader. That’s a huge gap. And what do siblings have to do with this? It doesn’t matter if you’re related or not fighting with someone younger than you looks immature to me, but then again we do live in a world full of ignorant ppl like you.

  4. BeyIsKing January 31, 2015

    …..uhm on to something more important…
    Is Bey performing at the Grammys or not???!!!!?!

  5. Barb-wire January 31, 2015

    *yawns* basic as always.

  6. Ciara the Flop January 31, 2015

    I love how the BeyHIVe swarm into a post that has nothing to do with Beyonce and make the less important section (the comment section) about her.

  7. Lobe January 31, 2015

    Let’s be clear… I’m not a fan of these women (Mariah Carey and Britney Spears) but their influence in music, as well as Beyonce, is unmatched! Bey, Brit and Mariah are not only singers, they’re game changers! They don’t have to prove themselves, they have receipts dating back many moons ago! They’re accomplished… They still sell out arenas and despite their dip in record sales (everyone knows Tweens/teens account for majority of record sales), they still slay… just based off their legacy. Don’t compare these women to digital artist because digital artists are in a fickle era. They’re history making feats can be easily beaten by the upcoming talents. So while you’re around saying who’s who… Just know your fave is highly influenced and molded from these women careers. Get them wig together b******, it’s tilted and I see Bebe shots.

  8. britneyraycarey January 31, 2015

    Ugh it’s so tiring seeing these 2 basic pop stars trying to make a feud happen.. Neither makes decent music and neither are as interesting as Rihanna, Madonna, Britney, Mariah, and even Beyawnce…

  9. MISHKA February 1, 2015

    Am I the only one enjoying this “Love & Pop” beef?”

    As much as they deny it, John Mayer is definitely one of the reasons why they don’t get along.

    The other reasons are: Taylor stealing Katy’s dancers, Katy stealing them back, Katy having like 13 outfits in “This is how we do”‘s music video, Taylor doing the same number in “Blank Space”…

    All this is so funny to me.

    This is exactly why I don’t f**k with Katy. She always starting ish. Girl, please get somewhere. #TunaBasket
