The Ultimate Showdown: A Look Back at the Taylor Swift and Katy Perry Feud

Taylor Swift VS Katy Perry Bad Blood: History of their Feud

It’s no secret that Taylor Swift and Katy Perry have Bad Blood. But what exactly is the history behind their feud? Why do they hate each other so much? Let’s take a closer look.

The Beginning

Rumors of tension between Swift and Perry started in 2013 when some of Swift’s backup dancers left her tour to join Perry’s. Swift later confirmed these rumors in an interview with Rolling Stone, saying “She did something so horrible. I was like, ‘Oh, we’re just straight-up enemies.'”

The Beef Heats Up

Things escalated in 2014 when Swift released her hit song “Bad Blood,” which many people believe is about Perry. Swift never confirmed this, but she did say in interviews that the song was about someone who had done something “really bad” to her. Perry responded by tweeting, “Watch out for the Regina George in sheep’s clothing.”
The Feud Goes Public
In 2017, Perry appeared on James Corden’s “Carpool Karaoke” and revealed that the source of their feud was over backup dancers. Perry said, “She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me.” Swift then reportedly retaliated by releasing all of her music on streaming services the same day Perry released her album, “Witness.”
The Truce
In May 2018, Perry sent Swift an actual olive branch and a handwritten note apologizing for their feud. Swift then publicly accepted the apology in an interview with a magazine. In June 2019, Perry appeared in Swift’s music video for “You Need to Calm Down,” and the two were seen hugging and dancing together.
In conclusion, the feud between Taylor Swift and Katy Perry has had its ups and downs. While it’s unclear if they’ll ever be close friends, it is clear that they’ve both moved on from their Bad Blood and are ready to put the past behind them.
