Shots were fired — both in ‘Rolling Stone’ magazine and on Twitter — and now we know why! A source explains to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY why Katy isn’t a fan of the ‘Shake It Off’ singer.
Katy Perry doesn’t appear to be too happy with Taylor Swift for allegedly calling her out in a new Rolling Stone interview, featured in the Sept. 25 issue. But a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that their relationship has been strained for quite some time — find out why!
Katy Perry: Why She Dislikes Taylor Swift
“Katy and Taylor are the definition of oil and water. They both have completely opposite personalities and Taylor just rubs Katy the wrong way. Katy feels that everything Taylor does is completely fake and annoying and she really doesn’t care for her,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
So why all the bad blood? Well, both singers dated John Mayer — Katy after Taylor. Enough said, right?
“Katy has had many talks with and heard stories from John Mayer about Taylor and she’s convinced [the ‘Shake It Off’ singer] is a conniving b***h, who is only out to benefit herself. Katy dislikes fake people and she thinks that Taylor is the queen of fake people. Katy can read through all of Taylor’s bulls**t,” our source adds.
Wow! Those are some fightin’ words.
Taylor Swift Talks ‘Straight-Up Enemy’ — About Katy Perry?
If we backtrack a bit, Taylor revealed that her frenemy “tried to sabotage an entire arena tour” in her new Rolling Stone interview.
“For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not,” she said. “She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, ‘Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life? She did something so horrible. I was like, ‘Oh, we’re just straight-up enemies.’ And it wasn’t even about a guy! It had to do with business. She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me. And I’m surprisingly non-confrontational – you would not believe how much I hate conflict. So now I have to avoid her. It’s awkward, and I don’t like it.”
Taylor didn’t name names, but hours later, Katy tweeted, “Watch out for the Regina George in sheep’s clothing…”
In case you were unaware, Regina George is the name of the main character, played by Rachel McAdams, in Mean Girls, who ruins lives by talking about other girls behind their backs.
There’s no evidence that Katy’s tweet is about Taylor, but our source insists that Katy is NOT a fan of Taylor. So either way, it’s clear that these girls are definite frenemies!
