When it comes to the feud between Taylor Swift and Katy Perry, the claws are still out! HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that Katy’s ‘1984’ will be a direct response to Taylor’s ‘Bad Blood.’
Katy Perry, 30, is ready to finally retaliate for the song that put her and 24-year-old Taylor Swift‘s girl fight into headlines everywhere. A source close to the girl fight has confirmed to HollywoodLife.com that “1984” will definitely be the long awaited response to “Bad Blood” — but will it be the only one?
If you’re excited for the Katy vs Taylor drama to continue, take a deep breath because it’s not going to last very long. “‘1984’ is without question a diss track,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “This will most likely be the only one.” Interesting. Does that mean that Katy’s track will be the diss to end all disses?
“Katy was working on some other songs against Taylor, but ‘1984’ will be the main rebuttal to ‘Bad Blood,'” the source continued to explain. But, when it comes to the disses, our source revealed that only people who are well-versed on their feud will catch the hidden disses.
The source shared that “only a few people have heard the demo,” and “apparently the jabs are very subtle but will still sting!” Me-ow, Kitty Kats!
Taylor Vs. Katy: A Brief History Of Their Girl Fight
Of course, if you’ve been living under a rock and don’t know about the ongoing drama between Taylor and Katy, let HollywodLife.com break it down for you: It all started when Taylor revealed that “Bad Blood” was inspired by someone in Hollywood who was two-faced towards her for a long time. Then things heated up when Katy sent out a cryptic tweet that allegedly called Taylor a “Regina George” in “sheep’s clothing,” which was followed by Taylor revealing that Katy allegedly “stole” her back up dancers.
The feud took center stage — literally — when Katy dressed her Super Bowl back up dancers in polka dot bikinis that looked like they were stolen directly out of Taylor’s closet, and the most recent shot was taken when Selena Gomez donned a Katy-inspired bob wig in Taylor’s “Bad Blood” video — where she played someone who turned on Taylor. Got it? Good.
UPDATE: A rep for Katy Perry at Direction Management Group confirm this report is untrue. “Katy Perry’s managers at Direct Management Group confirm that this story is completely false,” a rep for Perry at Universal tells Billboard. “Katy Perry was not involved in writing, singing, recording or registering this song.”
