Taylor Swift has gotten herself right in the middle of some major drama. From her recent tiff with Nicki Minaj to her ongoing feud with frenemy Katy Perry, we’re taking a look back at Taylor’s biggest feuds.
Taylor Swift’s song “Bad Blood” song could apply to more than just Katy Perry, 30. The 25-year-old has been involved in a number of disputes over the years. The girl never lets anyone bring her down. From her latest rift (and makeup) to Nicki Minaj, 32, to her iconic feud with Kanye West, 38, it’s time to take a trip down memory lane!
After the MTV VMA nominations were released on July 21, drama hit the fan. Nicki went on a rant after not being nominated for “Video of the Year,” and Taylor took notice. Nicki tweeted, “If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year,” to which Taylor responded, “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.”
The whole situation spun out of control. Camilla Belle, Nene Leakes and even Katy got involved. Nicki insisted that her messages weren’t aimed at Taylor. Just two days later, Taylor apologized to Nicki. “I thought I was being called out,” she tweeted. “I missed the point, I misunderstood, then misspoke. I’m sorry, Nicki.” Nicki accepted her apology, and now it looks like it’s all good between the two singers. Whew!
Katy Perry Vs. Taylor Swift
Katy and Taylor have one of the most notable feuds in Hollywood. The girls have had bad blood between them ever since Katy allegedly stole Taylor’s backup dancers. Things just escalated from there. Katy dissed Taylor during her 2015 Super Bowl halftime show, and Taylor retaliated with her “Bad Blood” music video, which is notoriously about Katy.
Unlike Taylor’s feud with Nicki, her beef with Katy isn’t dying down. After all, Katy just couldn’t stay silent when Taylor and Nicki were fighting. She just had to get a word in about her frenemy!
