Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj’s Twitter feud is starting to simmer down, but Katy Perry may have added more heat to it! The ‘Roar’ singer tweeted about their very public fight and her message sounds like it’s directed towards one specific person — Taylor.
Katy Perry, 30, is no stranger to controversy and this tweet proves she even welcomes it. The singer added in her two cents to the crazy Taylor Swift, 25, and Nicki Minaj, 32, Twitter fight that happened on July 21 with a message that just oozes of clues leading back to Katy and Taylor’s feud.
Those are some fighting words, Katy. After a fairly heated dispute between Nicki and Taylor, the “Roar” singer decided to speak out on the topic. Katy tweeted on July 22, “Finding it ironic to parade the pit women against other women argument about as one unmeasurably capitalizes on the take down of a woman…” Yikes. That tweet reads like it was tailored just for Taylor. Let’s break it down, shall we? Click to hear more details about the Taylor and Nicki feud.
The line from Katy’s tweet, “pit women against other women” was certainly taken from Taylor’s initial tweet towards Nicki. “@NICKIMINAJ I’ve done nothing but love & support you. It’s unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot..” Taylor wrote on Twitter after assuming Nicki’s MTV VMAs rant was about her. The second one is where it gets personal.
When Katy mentions the line about capitalizing on the take down of a woman, it really seems like she’s talking about herself. Think about it, Taylor’s song “Bad Blood” is basically a diss towards Katy — Taylor alluded to it in her Rolling Stone interview. Now, after the epic, model-studded music video, that very single is doing great on the Billboard charts and Taylor is making a pretty penny from it. To throw more salt on the wound, Nicki went and favorited Katy’s tweet. Ouch.
Katy Perry Slams Hollywood Mean Girl
That subliminal tweet wasn’t the first one Katy indirectly sent out about Taylor. Back in September 2014, after Taylor’s Rolling Stone spread came out, the “Dark Horse” singer sent out a tweet we could all only assume was about Tay. “Watch out for the Regina George in sheep’s clothing…” Katy wrote.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Was it okay for Katy to tweet about that or should she have just kept quiet?
