People Think Taylor Swift Is Being Petty by Doing This to Katy Perry
Fans are accusing the “Bad Blood” singer of being petty by stealing her nemesis’ thunder on the day of Katy’s new album release.
Just as Witness was hitting shelves, Tay — who pulled her music from mainstream streaming services in 2014 for not properly compensating her art — made all her records available on platforms like Spotify, Tidal, and Amazon. As if to pour salt on the wounds, Taylor’s team claimed the change of heart was to celebrate 1989, an album that came out more than to years ago, selling over 10 million copies.
Coincidence or not, many think it was a shady move of Taylor’s part to ruin the “Swish Swish” songstress’ big day.

Taylor is trying to block Katy’s blessings like how she released Shake It Off when Anaconda was about to go #1. Imagine stanning her.

this is way more than just a beef. this is sabotage. Taylor Swift wants to end Katy’s career no matter what

Last month, Katy told late night talk show host James Corden that she was “ready for that BS to be done” and end her longstanding spat with Taylor, who allegedly cast the first stone by writing a song about the drama.
“Honestly, it’s really like she started it, and it’s time for her to finish it,” Katy said. “I tried to talk to her about it and she wouldn’t speak to me.”
She added, “I think personally that women together, not divided, and none of this petty bullsh*t, women together will heal the world.”
Clearly, Taylor has other things in mind.
