Taylor Swift has gotten a lot of flack about her breakup songs in the past, but this time it isn’t an ex she’s going after—it’s a former lady friend!
The 24-year-old songstress sat down with Rolling Stone and dished on why she wrote a song titled “Bad Blood” on her upcoming album 1989—about another female artist she declined to name—though many are assuming it’s about Katy Perry!.
“For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not,” she tells the mag.
“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, the music mag reports, the woman in question took it too far.
“She did something so horrible,” Tay says. “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.”
While we’re especially amused by the fact it’s not about a man—more specifically, her own surprise at this fact—we’re especially relived for John Mayer, at least someone made it out of this conflict scot-free…
Katy added fuel to the fire with a passive aggressive tweet:
“Watch out for Regina George in sheep’s clothing…” the 29-year-old wrote, referencing Mean Girls.
Watch out for the Regina George in sheep's clothing…
