Those Swifties sure are loyal. During a UK music festival, two quick flashes of Katy Perry’s face appeared on the jumbotron right before Taylor Swift got her own airtime — and Tay’s fans immediately responded with harsh hecklings for the ‘Firework’ songstress!
With the release of her epic diss song “Bad Blood” (reportedly written for Katy Perry, 30), Taylor Swift, 25, started a raging war between her legions of fans and her nemesis’ pack of KatyCats. The two divas starred in a video montage which played at London’s British Summertime Festival. While Taylor received an ear-shattering round of excited hoots and hollers, Katy’s image was greeted with a big ol’ boo. Watch the shocking clip here!
Taylor’s circle of celeb BFFs has been opening up more and more. Even Kendall Jenner, 19, and Emma Watson, 25 have spots in the T-Swizzle clique now. But one girl who still won’t be able to sit with the pop-country cutie’s crew? Katy, obvi. Not over Tay-Tay’s fans’ dead bodies.
In the 17-long-second clip, we see Katy appear not once, but twice in an ad to promote London’s Top 40 radio station, 95.8 Capital FM. Therefore, Katy got boe’ed not once – but twice. Pretty painful, huh? Take a look at the video above and see for yourself.
While it might seem like we’ve jumped the gun to place all the booing blame on Taylor’s Swifties, it’s pretty apparent judging from the polar opposite reaction their queen received from concertgoers. Yep, Miss Swift’s sole appearance was acknowledged by a raucous, roaring cheer.
While we’re sad Katy might not ever become besties with Taylor, we are completely obsessed with the two new additions to the “Shake It Off” singer’s girl group that is the definition of #SquadGoals. As we mentioned before, the 25-year-old has invited Kendall and Emma to join in on all the fun!
After Taylor’s June 27 show in England, Emma hung out with the blonde beauty and a number of her famous gal pals, including runway stars Martha Hunt, 26, and Karlie Kloss, 22. Aspiring pop star Lauren Aquilina tweeted a sweet snap of the monumental moment. Taylor’s arm was wrapped around Emma’s neck. She tweeted, “Spent tonight surrounded by badass girls and couldn’t be happier about it.” Neither could we! Now we’re just waiting for OUR initiation into Hollywood’s hottest posse.
Not only did Taylor buddy up to the former Harry Potter actress, but she also put feud rumors with Kendall to rest when she had the reality star turned supermodel come on stage with her during the very same London show she connected with Emma at. Best. Night. Ever.
Too bad Katy wasn’t a part of it…and probably never will be. HollywoodLifers — what do YOU think of Taylor’s fans booing Katy? Did she deserve it? Let us know your thoughts!
