Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” feud with Katy Perry just won’t end anytime soon. The singer reportedly took a jab at her arch nemesis by having Katy’s iconic “Left Shark” perform in the middle of her 1989 concert.
Swift, 25, was headlining her world tour at Gilette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts. During her performance of “Bad Blood,” a shark appeared behind the singer.
Swift laughed at her backup dancer who wore a shark costume, similar to the sharks in Perry’s Super Bowl halftime show. She then carried on with her performance of “Bad Blood.”
There have been rumors swirling that “Left Shark” was one of the dancers that Katy stole from Taylor, which caused the bad blood feud in the first place. Of course, both fans and the media think that feud was started because of John Mayer, and that the backup dancers were the last straw for Taylor.
Katy Perry’s sharks were the highlight of her Super Bowl halftime show. “Left Shark” became an overnight internet sensation after it was spotted dancing incorrectly. It was also rumored that Perry tried to register the “Left Shark” design, so that no one else can use it. Unfortunately, for Perry, her request failed and Swift is now using it against her.
Is this the singer’s way of getting back at Perry? The “Dark Horse” singer criticized Swift when the latter accused Nicki Minaj of pitting women against women.
Katy Perry coyly tweeted: “Finding it ironic to parade the pit women against other women argument about as one unmeasurably capitalizes on the take down of another woman…”
Although Swift and Minaj have ended their feud with a phone call late last week, there appears to be more bad blood with Perry.
Taylor first hinted about her feud with Katy during her 2014 interview with Rolling Stone magazine. She also insisted that it wasn’t about John Mayer, but that hasn’t stopped the media from talking. Taylor briefly dated the musician in 2010, while Katy and John have been on and off since 2012.
“For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not. 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?’”
“Then last year, the other star crossed a line. 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.”
Around that time, Katy infamously tweeted: “Watch out for the Regina George in sheep’s clothing…”
