Let the cat fight continue! Katy Perry is reportedly recording a new song titled ‘Crocodile Tears,’ and HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY reveal that the song was created to get revenge on Taylor Swift for ‘Bad Blood.’ Find out what else is behind the soon-to-be smash hit!
This could get messy! Katy Perry, 30, is aiming her shade at Taylor Swift, 25, once again with a new song reportedly titled “Crocodile Tears,” and HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that it’s payback for Taylor’s song “Bad Blood,” that is notoriously known to be about Katy. This will certainly stir things up!
Take your minds back to 2014, and you’ll remember Taylor gave an interview with Rolling Stone magazine and subtly dissed Katy for nearly wrecking her tour. That’s where the inspiration for “Bad Blood” came from. And now it’s time for Katy’s retort.
“Katy’s tentatively titled ‘Crocodile Tears’ is a direct reply to Taylor’s claims that she tried to sabotage Taylor’s tour by hiring her backing dancers,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Crocodile tears is a term used to describe insincere sorrow, and that’s exactly what Katy thinks Taylor tried to achieve in her interview with Rolling Stone back in 2014 when she made those outrageous claims.”
The source goes on to say that Katy believes that Taylor was playing the victim and trying to paint Katy as the bad egg, even though she says she had nothing to do with the hiring of Taylor’s former backup dancers.
“As far as Katy was concerned, Taylor’s claim was bogus and Katy had nothing to do with the hiring of those dancers,” the source continues. “Katy felt Taylor was trying to make her look bad by saying such things, and paint her as the villain.” The source also adds: “Taylor came out with ‘Bad Blood’ — a song about that infamous incident, and now it’s Katy’s time to share her side of events. Let the battle begin!”
Katy Perry & Diplo Writing New Taylor Swift Diss Song — Report
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Katy has enlisted the services of ex-boyfriend Diplo, 36, to pen the song about her feud with Taylor. Katy turned to Diplo, who has had his own beef with the “Shake It Off” singer, and together they’re planning on taking Taylor down in song, according to a UK newspaper report.
“Katy knew Diplo would be just the man to produce ‘Crocodile Tears’ for her and has now registered it,” a source told The Sun. “So far she’s been very restrained with what she’s said about Taylor in public but is now ready to put her side across via the song – which is all about being fake.” Come on, girls! Can’t we all just get along?
While there’s no confirmation on release date, we can’t wait to hear this one. How do you feel about it, HollywoodLifers?
