Ignore whatever it is Taylor’s stunt double is doing in the “Bad Blood” music video, she’s not capable of delivering that blow in real life. This war is one of verbal scratches and mind bullets. The rivalry between Taylor Swift and Katy Perry has been brewing for a few years, and there have been subtle clues and hints surrounding the entire celationship (yes, that would be celebrity relationship). Were they ever really friends, or just rich, really famous acquaintances? Let’s consider the six shocking revelations about this feud.
6. It Started Over… Dancers?
How did this alleged feud between Taylor Swift and Katy Perry even begin? Well… believe it or not, it began because of three backup dancers. Dancers who were loyal to Katy, had been hired by Taylor to promote Red back in 2012, then were offered another tour with Katy. Such is the nature of the beast. The dancers left Taylor — who they referred to as cool, but pretty much untouchable — to rejoin Katy, and prep for another tour of the world with someone they considered family. Taylor was a whopping 22 at the time, and in her mind, she probably had visions of an evil Katy Perry plotting behind the scenes. In reality, it was most likely Katy’s choreographer who made the initial suggestion, and the tour/production manager who made the calls. One of those dancers who ditched Swift for Perry’s tour also happened to be one of the now infamous “Dancing Sharks” from Perry’s Super Bowl halftime show.
