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.
As you know, One Love Manchester, Ariana Grande’s benefit concert for the victims and victims families of the terrorist attack at her show two weeks ago, happened in Manchester last night. 50,000 people were at the show and performers included Miley Cyrus, Coldplay, Katy Perry, Little Mix, Take That the Black Eyed Peas (sans Fergie), and Justin Bieber. Normally this would be where I’d want to make a “Haven’t they been through enough already?” joke about Bieber, but I do have a shred of a soul left, so I won’t. Yesterday, Red Cross UK said that One Love Manchester raised over $9 million for the victims. Today, TMZ says it has raised $12 million. They expect to raise more from television rights and merchandise. Continue reading
In Katy Perry’s latest song, Swish Swish, she sings that it’s funny a certain “bish,” who is most definitely Taylor Swift, can’t keep from saying her name. After Swish Swish was released, Katy blabbed about her immature popular girl fight with Taylor while trapped in a car with James Corden. According to UsWeekly, Taylor is over this shit with Katy. A friend of Taylor’s claims she is sick of the drama, and wants “no part” of Katy’s thirst to keep it going.
“She honestly wants no part of this, that’s why she avoids talking about it. She doesn’t want to engage.”
Katy said in a SiriusXM radio interview last week that she’d be happy to end their feud if Taylor gave her a call. Katy has a better chance of receiving a phone call from the ghost of Alexander Graham Bell than one from Taylor. Another source close to Taylor says she has no intention of reaching out to Katy, especially considering the lyric in Swish Swish where Katy sings about “another one in the casket.” Funny, that’s also where I thought this feud would have been by now.
I doubt Taylor hates that Katy is keeping this dumb drama going between the two of them. If anything, Taylor probably appreciates all the hard work Katy is putting into it. Taylor spent some of 2014 and all of 2015 keeping people interested in this nonsense. She sort of took a break in 2016 to focus on Kanye West, and 2017 is shaping up to be a busy year, what with her new boyfriend. It’s Katy’s turn to do some of the heavy lifting now.
Katy Perry is the first (and so far only) person to have officially signed on to judge the next wave of desperate singing superstars on ABC’s reboot of American Idol. It was rumored she was earning a pretty penny for it. Actually, it was more like 2,500,000,000 pennies (aka $25 million). Sources told TMZ that ABC was desperate to sign a name, and Katy had all the leverage in negotiating a huge pay check. Katy recently confirmed the rumors were true about her Idol paycheck.
Last night Katy Perry appeared in The Late Late Show’s Carpool Karaoke segment with James Corden. Katy spent most of her time talking and not singing. The biggest talking point on Katy’s promo tour for her upcoming album Witness has been about her ongoing feud with Taylor Swift. Katy played coy with Jimmy Fallon about whether her latest song Swish Swish is about Taylor Swift, but with James Corden, she gave a detailed statement about her mean girl bully.
Taylor Swift just rang up her bank and told them to cancel the hell out of Ruby Rose’s snake squad check. This past week, Ruby made a bid for the “Taylor’s New Bestie” role in the squad that’s usually held by a closeted lesbian supermodel. Perhaps someone told Ruby that she was laying it on a little thick with all of the Katy Perry hatred? After all, the first rule in the squad handbook is to always “K.I.S.S.” (Keep It Subtle, Stupid!).
