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