Katy Perry’s Shark is the Backup Dancer She Stole from Taylor Swift
The shark on the right, however, was spot on with his moves… And it just so happens we’ve discovered his identity: Scott Myrick.
Who is Scott Myrick, you may ask? Well, other than having an extremely hot body with chiseled abs, he’s one of Perry’s BFFs and also happens to be a big instigator in the feud between her and Taylor Swift.
In 2011 Myrick performed with Perry’s California Dreams World Tour, and after it wrapped, secured a gig with Swift’s Red Tour. However, according to an Examiner interview, Perry’s camp reached back out to Myrick in middle of his tour with Swift, asking if he’d leave to perform with Perry for her Prismatic World Tour.
Myrick and two others ended up leaving, causing some “Bad Blood” between Swift and Perry–a feud the country-turned-pop crooner has alluded to before.
Taylor told Rolling Stone, “She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me. And I’m surprisingly non-confrontational – you would not believe how much I hate conflict. So now I have to avoid her. It’s awkward, and I don’t like it.”
Yikes! But in Myrick’s case, when one door closes, another opens… And now he’s one of the most famous sharks in the world!
