Taylor Swift’s Army of Little Girls ‘Assassinated’ Katy Perry

I don’t think of Katy Perry as having an edge. To me she’s somewhere between her bubblegum and cotton candy wonderland persona and her early Christian pop thing. When she tries to come off as bad, she always looks like she’s trying too hard. She kissed a girl… and she liked it? Cue eye roll.

Now Taylor Swift, there’s a gritty musician. Swift is totally gangster. Remember how she used and abused Tom Hiddleston? That was ice cold. So it doesn’t exactly surprise me that Perry is trying to get the upper hand in this white-girl pop-star feud.

Like how she recently admitted to James Corden that she- gasp!- sometimes gets mad (via NME).

“…I’m not Buddha – things irritate me. I wish that I could turn the other cheek every single time, but I’m also not a pushover, you know? Especially when someone tries to assassinate my character with little girls. That’s so messed up!”

Even when she’s talking smack, she comes off as sickeningly sweet. On her new album, Witness, she even collaborated with the author of a diss against her. Max Martin, who co-wrote Swift’s “Bad Blood,” wrote a lot of Perry’s new album. “Bad Blood” is widely accepted as being about Swift’s ongoing beef with Perry. So how could Perry let that all go? With excuses and an angelic smile.

“I can’t speak for him, but he didn’t know [who ‘Bad Blood’ was about],” says Perry. “I’m not supposed to tell him what he can and can’t do. I’m very fair; I’m super-duper fair and I’m not one of those people who’s like, ‘You can’t do that because I don’t like that person. Just, like, you do you, make your own choices.’ And I love Max. I’ve been working with Max my whole career. I’m not his mother and he was fine before I met him, you know what I’m saying? He’ll be fine continuing.”

And seriously? Who says super-duper? Perry has one trick, and it’s showing most of her boobs to her teenage fans. She’s not cut out for a serious feud.
