Katy Perry’s new song, ‘Swish Swish,’ is prob­a­bly about T. Swift, yawn

Metro USA (New York) - - Gossip -

As most peo­ple un­for­tu­nately know, Katy Perry and Tay­lor Swift have been in a near con­stant state of po­lite feud­ing. Ear­lier this month, Perry kept things vague, say­ing that while her new al­bum “Wit­ness” wouldn’t be diss­ing any­body in par­tic­u­lar, it would be damn em­pow­er­ing. “I think [my new al­bum is] a very em­pow­ered record,” she said. “There is no one thing that’s call­ing out any one per­son. This record is not about any­one else!” The lady doth protest too much.

But also she just re­leased a song, “Swish Swish,” fea­tur­ing Nicki Mi­naj — a woman who has had her own Tay­lor Swift tiff — that is def­i­nitely about Tay Tay.

On an ap­pear­ance on “The Tonight Show,” host Jimmy Fal­lon asked Perry if the song

was about like, any­one in par­tic­u­lar. “I think it’s a great an­them for peo­ple to use when­ever some­one’s try­ing to hold you down or bully you,” said the 32-yearold. “It’s a lib­er­a­tion from all the [neg­a­tiv­ity] that doesn’t serve you.” Sigh.

Well it’s no Tu­pac Shakur vs. Big­gie Smalls, but I guess we take what we can get.
