Shots have been fired! It may have been subtle, but Taylor Swift seemingly dissed Katy Perry in her ‘Bad Blood’ video by having Selena Gomez — her enemy in the short film — wear a wig inspired by the ‘Roar’ singer. Check it out!
Taylor Swift, 25, debuted her new video for “Bad Blood” during the Billboard Music Awards May 17, and it was everything. But more specifically, it seemed to serve as a platform for Taylor’s latest jab at her frenemy, Katy Perry, 30. The shade was real!
Taylor Swift Disses Katy Perry In ‘Bad Blood’ Video: Selena Gomez Wears Katy Wig
In the video, Selena Gomez, 22, played Arsyn, an enemy of Taylor’s character. And since “Bad Blood” was rumored to be written about Taylor’s ongoing feud with Katy, it seems pretty obvious that Selena was playing Katy. She even wore a Katy Perry wig in the video!
Was this Taylor’s way of dissing Katy? It seems that way.
So why would Taylor got out of her way to throw shade Katy’s way? Well, the feud allegedly began when three of Taylor’s backup dancers — whom Taylor considered to be family — ditched her tour for Katy’s, according to TMZ.
And then in late 2014, Taylor told Rolling Stone that a fight she’s having with a fellow singer “had to do with business” and that “She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me.”
Taylor didn’t name names in her interview, but the rumors certainly line up with what she revealed.
So this feud has been going on for quite some time — this was just Taylor’s turn to fire back at Katy.
