People are still asking Katy Perry about her dumb pop star fight with Taylor Swift. Katy Perry is still talking about her dumb pop star fight with Taylor Swift. And bloggers like me are still writing about it, because well, everything is Comey! Comi! Comé! today, so this is what we’re working with.
While doing Carpool Karaoke with James Corden a couple of weeks ago, Katy gave her side to her World War Zzzzzzz with Taylor. Katy confirmed that she earned herself prime real estate in Taylor’s Burn Book over backup dancers. When Katy tried to talk to Taylor about it, she got no response. Katy is ready for the stupid fight to be done, but until that day comes, she’s going to milk it for attention.
Katy talked to NME (via Refinery29) to promote Witness. The entire interview comes out tomorrow, the same day her album comes out, but NME released a little nugget about Tay Tay today. Katy was asked why she talked about Taylor on Carpool Karaoke. She said that you can’t rub her stomach for luck, because Buddha she ain’t. When you fuck with Katy’s character, you fuck with her money (because little girls aren’t going to buy her album if they think she’s a super-duper meanie).
“Well, James Corden makes me and the whole world feel very safe. No one has asked me about my side of the story, and there are three sides of every story: one, two, and the truth. I mean, 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 [her fans]. That’s so messed up!”
Katy was also asked for her feelings on her regular collaborator, songwriter and producer Max Martin, working with Taylor on the anti-Katy Perry anthem Bad Blood. Katy isn’t mad at him because she’s super-duper fair like that.
“I can’t speak for [Max], but he didn’t know [who ‘Bad Blood’ was about]. 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… I’m not his mother.”
But back to Buddha. Katy Perry is right. Buddha would never talk about a fight with the media or James Corden. That’s tacky and not a good look at all. Buddha would make nice with Taylor…. and then when she invited him to her big Taymerica party during the Fourth of July holiday, he’d sneakily spike the red, white and blue parfaits with laxatives. And then Buddha would sit back and laugh while the paparazzi clicked away as Taylor got diarrhea during her photo-op frolic in the ocean with her new boyfriend. That’s how the mature and the wise handle a situation like that, Katy!
