The war between Taylor Swift and Katy Perry rages on. Due to the fact that Katy dissed Taylor during her Super Bowl performance, the ‘Bad Blood’ singer thought it would only be fair to return the favor. And Taylor does so ‘multiple’ times in her new video, which premieres May 17.
Band-aids won’t fix these bullet holes. Taylor Swift, 25, fired “multiple” shots at Katy Perry, 30, while filming her music video for Bad Blood. It’s no secret that the two singers have had a strained relationship for quite some time, but things got worse after Katy blatantly dissed the superstar during her Super Bowl performance in February. And Taylor thought this would be the perfect opportunity to fire back!
Taylor Swift Dissing Katy Perry In ‘Bad Blood’ Video: There Are ‘Multiple’ Jabs
“There will be Katy Perry disses throughout the video and they are going to be related to Katy’s Super Bowl performance,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Katy put high-waisted polka dot bikinis on her backup dancers for her Super Bowl performance. The dig seemed to be a direct reference to Taylor’s Cape Cod summer with Conor Kennedy in 2012, when she was frequently spotted out wearing a red, high-waisted polka dot bikini. And let’s not forget that backup dancers were reportedly the cause of Katy and Taylor’s feud in the first place.
Taylor certainly took notice of the dig, and that’s why she chose to retaliate with her new music video, which will premiere at the start of the Billboard Music Awards on May 17. And if we were Katy, we’d be scared — Taylor’s character in the video is named Catastrophe. (Gulp.)
