The shade of it all! Katy Perry took her feud with Taylor Swift to a new level when she followed a random Instagram user with the account name, ‘Slutty Taylor Swift.’ Yikes! Is this a not-so-subtle diss at Katy’s longtime rival?
At first glance, Instagram user Dinah Rankin appears like any other fashionable person on social media. However, she has a very famous follower: Katy Perry! Before we think Dinah and Katy, 30, are new BFFs, Katy following Dinah might be the latest shot fired in the “Roar” singer’s war against Taylor Swift, 25.
Katy was spotted following Dinah’s account around Aug. 5, reports BuzzFeed. Dina’s Instagram username jumped out, as she posts under the name “sluttytaylorswift.” Yikes! Unlike other parody or novelty accounts, there are no pictures of Taylor on Dinah’s account, slutty or otherwise. Instead, it shows Dinah modeling, relaxing and goofing around.
“SluttyTaylorSwift” might just be a joke about how Dinah, a tall blonde like T-Swizzle, might be confused for a “slutty” T-Swizzle. Dinah’s profile picture is Taylor’s face on an old picture, according to SugarSpace. However, Dinah also uploaded a picture of Left Shark from Katy’s Super Bowl Halftime Performance on Feb 2. Gasp! Whose team is she on?
Katy hasn’t unfollowed the account, which has led fans to speculate that she wants everyone, including Taylor, to see it. Ooh, it looks like Katy is still gunning for TayTay. She just slammed Taylor over her feud with Nicki Minaj. Oh, there is a chance that Dinah and Katy are secretly friends and this was Katy’s way of going public with the relationship. Or maybe she’s a fan of Dinah’s YouTube page? Perhaps, though, it’s likely the latest insult in the Katy-Taylor feud that seems like it will never end!
Taylor went into her longtime feud with Katy, explaining to Vanity Fair why she feels hurt by her former friend. “If you betray your friend, if you will talk about them badly behind their back, if you will try to humiliate them or talk down to them,” Taylor told Vanity Fair, “I have no interest in having a person like that in my life.” It seems like Katy feels the same way!
What do you think about Katy following “SluttyTaylorSwift” on Instagram, HollywoodLifers? Is this a not-so-subtle diss at Taylor or do you think Katy just really likes Dinah’s photos?
