What goes around, comes around. Katy Perry felt liberated when Calvin Harris slammed Taylor Swift in his explosive Twitter rant on July 13. Not only did he back Katy up, but he shined a light on who Taylor really is!
As you’ll recall, the British DJ said how he didn’t appreciate the way Taylor Swift was trying to make him look bad in the press, even noting that he won’t let her “bury” him “like Katy [Perry].” It was quite shocking, but we discovered Katy is very pleased that her side of the story has now been confirmed.
“Katy can’t help but feel vindicated by this. She’s glad Calvin [Harris] is finally shining the light on exactly who Taylor is,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Katy is still bitter about the way Taylor went after her.” The drama started when Calvin took to Twitter and shared a plethora of tweets, defending his reputation against Tay. He confirmed that his ex did indeed write and put vocals on the first version of his hit, “This Is What You Came For,” which now features Rihanna, 28, and praised her for it, but he didn’t appreciate how she seemed to be downplaying his success.
Calvin brought Katy in the mix by addressing the previous beef between the “Roar” songstress and Taylor: “I know you’re off tour and you need someone new to try and bury like Katy ETC but I’m not that guy, sorry. I won’t allow it.”
Even though Katy was unwillingly interjected into the controversy — she took it upon herself to share the most epic GIF as a response. Katy used an animation of Hillary Clinton raising her eyebrows and shrugging in a nonchalant manner, while replying to a question at the podium. It definitely has the “I didn’t say it, but it’s not exactly wrong,” type of vibe! LOL!
The raven-haired songstress later shared a short, but simple message that seemed to get right to the point of the matter: “Time, the only truth teller.” A source also dished to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY, “Katy definitely had thoughts to squash their beef in light of all the bigger things happening in the world. But as the weeks have gone by and seeing what she is doing in this whole Calvin debacle has really lit the fire again.”
HollywoodLifers, do you think Katy’s response to Calvin’s Twitter rant about Taylor was priceless?! Let us know!
