According to reports, Katy Perry is allegedly planning on releasing a pretty scathing diss track aimed at Taylor Swift.
Radar Online is reporting that Perry is ready to hit back at Swift’s 2014 hit “Bad Blood,” which is rumored to be about their drama. After Taylor’s ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris appeared to just reignite their drama on social media, it looks like Katy’s alleged Swift slam couldn’t come soon enough.
“Katy has written a scathing response and intends to make it a single,” an insider close to Perry told the site of Katy’s alleged Taylor diss track.
According to the source, Perry’s track “will reference some of the things she feels Taylor has done to play her peers against each other” while the alleged new track is being billed as a direct response to Swift’s “Bad Blood.”
The latest round of reports come amid reports that Swift’s former boyfriend just reignited their past feud on Twitter after he claimed that Taylor tried to “bury” Katy.
After launching into a pretty scathing attack on his former girlfriend after it was confirmed that Swift had co-written his hit “This Is What You Came For,” Harris scathingly told Taylor on Twitter, “I know you’re off tour and you need someone new to try and bury like Katy ETC but I’m not that guy, sorry. I won’t allow it.”
Katy Perry is yet to officially respond to the drama, but she had a pretty telling response on her own Twitter account.
Following Calvin’s call-out, Perry posted a GIF of Hillary Clinton and then opted to retweet a message she originally posted on May 2015 that read, “Time, the ultimate truth teller.”
But now it appears that Katy will more than likely make a more official response to the Taylor drama in song.
Rumours have long swirled that Perry’s next single may be a response to Swift’s “Bad Blood” after a Twitter user, who claims to be a studio engineer, alleged that Katy has already recorded the Taylor diss and is planning to release it on her upcoming new album.
The social media user, who uses the Twitter handle @lovelymissJJ, claimed earlier this year that the slam was imminent, tweeting out, “Katy’s response to Bad Blood is so good but no one’s gonna care cos the beef died down.”
However, it appears that Perry and Swift’s “beef” has now boiled over once again.
Katy is yet to officially confirm or deny the reports, though other social media users have also claimed that a “Bad Blood” response is on its way.
“Katy Perry’s lead single from #KP4 is rumoured to be coming this August and it’s apparently a response to ‘Bad Blood’” @MusicFactsShady previously wrote on the social media site, adding, “Katy Perry’s new single is strongly rumoured [to] be a response to Taylor’s “Bad Blood”. Is Katy the new Regina George?”
The latest reports about Katy and Taylor’s drama comes shortly after Hollywood Life claimed that Perry was on Team Kardashian after Kim hit out at Swift following some pretty serious drama surrounding Kanye West’s controversial track, “Famous.”
The site claimed at the time that “Katy loves what Kim said about Taylor” after Kardashian appeared to blast Swift as a liar in a candid interview with GQ magazine.
“She loves that one of the most popular people in the world is calling out Taylor for who she really is,” the source added, revealing that Katy believes that “people might actually start listening” to her past remarks about Swift following Kardashian’s Swift call out.
Hollywood Life‘s insider then went on to admit that Perry “is happy that people are getting to know that Taylor isn’t as squeaky clean as she appears to be,” alluding to Perry’s 2014 tweet about the popstar where she blasted Taylor by comparing her to Regina George, the villain from the 2004 film Mean Girls.
“Watch out for the Regina George in sheep’s clothing…” Perry tweeted at the time.
Though Katy’s tweet was noticeably vague, she appeared to confirm that Taylor was the recipient of the scathing message in an interview with Billboard where she admitted, “If somebody is trying to defame my character, you’re going to hear about it.”
