Believe it or not, the really hot dancer inside one of the shark costumes during Katy Perry’s halftime performance has a Taylor Swift connection.
Katy Perry, 30, is one clever lady — especially when it comes to subtly dissing her frenemies. It turns out that Scott Myrick, one of Katy’s hilarious shark dancers during the 2015 Super Bowl Halftime Show, is part of the massive feud between her and Taylor Swift, 24. So, how is he involved?
Katy Perry’s Hot Shark Dancer Part Of Taylor Swift Feud
Scott was one of the dancers on Taylor’s Red Tour when Katy asked him to join her Prismatic World Tour, reports Us Weekly. Burn!
However, there’s more to the story — and it turns out that Katy actually had him first.
Scott only auditioned and joined Taylor’s Red Tour after finishing Katy’s California Dreams Tour in 2011. When Katy called him and two other dancers to offer up a spot on her new tour, they bailed on Taylor — causing this seemingly endless feud.
Katy & Scott Have Worked Together For Years
Now, while it wasn’t exactly cool of Katy to siphon Taylor’s dancers, she has proven to be a pretty incredible boss.
Not only did Katy invite Scott to appear alongside her on the cover of Entertainment Weekly in 2013, but he was also invited to join her during the 2015 Super Bowl Halftime — something that was surely a once in a lifetime experience.
However, he may not have realized that he was also being used as part of her subtle diss against Taylor. Eek.
