The angriest song on 1989 is called "Bad Blood," and it's about another female artist Swift declines to name. "For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not," she says. "She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, 'Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?'" Then last year, the other star crossed a line. "She did something so horrible," Swift says. "I was like, 'Oh, we're just straight-up enemies.' And it wasn't even about a guy! It had to do with business. She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me. And I'm surprisingly non-confrontational – you would not believe how much I hate conflict. So now I have to avoid her. It's awkward, and I don't like it."
Considering Katy was the one who recruited 3 of Taylor's Red tour dancers mid-tour, became rather salty at awards shows, and dated Taylor's ex John Mayer(a lyric from 'Shake It Off' comes to mind: My ex man brought his new girlfriend/she's like oh my god), it's pretty easy to see who fans think the song is about.
Adding fuel to the fire was a tweet Katy cryptically sent out after the article became public knowledge comparing someone to Regina George from the movie Mean Girls.
Watch out for the Regina George in sheep's clothing…
Now in typical Taylor fashion, the singer doesn't actually name the person the song is about so we are left to ponder … but if the shoe fits?
I'm trying not to let the true message of the song get lost, but there is a part of me that wants to sit back and watch the firework show … see what I did there?
So now to the important question…Team Taylor or Team Katy?
