Did Katy Perry Write a Song About Taylor Swift?
In case you didn’t know, there’s some bad blood between Perry and Swift. In Sept. 2014, Swift confirmed that she had written a song about a fellow female artist who had wronged her and “tried to sabotage an entire arena tour.” Then, word quickly spread that the song was about Perry. The song is called “Bad Blood” and it’s on Swift’s latest album, 1989.
After the song was released, and then remixed, and then turned into a music video with some of Hollywood’s hottest women, Perry remained pretty silent. The only thing we’ve heard from Perry is the “watch out for Regina George in sheep’s clothing” subtweet.
But, now it seems like Perry is ready to speak her mind. She just registered a song called “1984” with music publisher BMI. With Swift’s album being called 1989 and Perry’s new song being called “1984,” we think some shade is about to be thrown. Swift’s album is called 1989 because that’s the year she was born, Perry was born in 1984.
Though it should be noted that Perry isn’t listed as one of the songwriters on “1984.” The BMI website lists Dallas Austin, Andreas Michael Carlsson, Patrick Collier and Nazerine Tokio. Also missing from the songwriter’s list is Perry’s longtime collaborated, Max Martin, who actually co-wrote “Bad Blood” with Swift.
It seems like a lot of Perry and Swift’s mutual friends are getting caught in the middle of this feud.
No word on when the song will be released, or if it will be a single, but we’ll keep you updated.
