Katy Perry Confirms ‘Swish Swish’ Is About Taylor Swift

This Katy Perry/Taylor Swift feud has been going on for a while and it wasn’t ever really clear what it was about. Swift said it was because Perry “basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour.”

Katy Perry recently responded with her own diss track “Swish Swish.” Lines were drawn with Ruby Rose coming to Taylor’s defense and then backing off when she realized she was a hypocrite. Joseph Kahn, director of Swift’s “Bad Blood” video, also sided with Swift tweeting, “If you’re gonna do a diss track, at least put a decent hook in it.”

On the Late Late Show, Perry finally explained to James Corden what really happened. When asked about the feud, Perry said Swift started it and it’s up to her to end it.

According to Perry, the entire thing started when three backup dancers asked Perry if they could go on tour with Swift. Perry, who wasn’t on a record cycle, gave her blessing but told them that she’d be on a record cycle in a year “so be sure to put a 30-day contingency in your contract so you can get out if you want to join me when I say I’m going back on.”

Well, the year came up and she texted them and said, “Look, just FYI: I’m about to start, I want to put the word out there.” When they went to talk to management about it, they got fired. When Perry tried to talk to Swift about it, she wouldn’t return her calls.

“It was a full shutdown and then she writes a song about me. And I’m like, ‘Oh, cool, cool, cool… that’s how you wanna deal with it? Karma.’ But what I wanna say is that, like, I’m ready for that BS to be done. Now, there is the law of cause and effect. You do something and there’s gonna be a reaction. And trust me, daddy, there’s gonna be a reaction.”

Much like everyone else, Perry wants the feud to end. She even pulled the women should be together, not divided card which Taylor loves to preach.

But, I mean, really. For the love of god, end this. End this or at least come up with better diss tracks because this s**t is lame. Just do a feature with Xxxtencion or something. I’m pretty sure Taylor Swift would let out the loudest white girl gasp.
