Taylor Swift & Katy Perry Feud A Grammy ‘Nightmare’
From seating charts to celebrities mingling backstage, Grammy producers devised a specific setup and schedule for the feuding pop stars!
“It’s been a nightmare co-ordinating everything so Katy and Taylor don’t cross paths at all. That means that the seating plan, backstage areas, and even the walk up to the stage at all times need to keep the girls well apart. They [didn’t] want this year’s Grammys to be remembered as the time the girls had a massive run-in,” according to the Daily Mirror.
Fortunately, it seemed like a cat fight was avoided between the mutual kitty lovers.
Not to mention, it was Kanye West who ended up stealing all of the attention at the end of the night. Shocker!
Taylor & Katy: How They Avoided Each Other At After Parties
And, as we previously reported, both super stars not only intentionally tip toed around each other during the Grammys, but also at the show’s after party.
“Word was that Taylor Swift was meant to show up, and Katy left before any of that could happen,” a source revealed EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com after attending the Universal Music Grammy Party sponsored by American Airlines and Citi.
In order to avoid that awkward moment, Taylor reportedly decided to skip the after party all together.
“Taylor didn’t show because rumors were that she knew Katy was there, and Katy left thinking Taylor was going to show, so they definitely made an effort to avoid each other,” our insider added.
During his Feb. 6 appearance on The Late Late Show, John joked about the bad blood between him and the “Shake It Off” singer.
“You can see me at the Grammys doing what I do best, being avoided by Taylor Swift,” John said.
