More “Bad Blood!”
As everyone on earth knows, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift aren’t exactly buddies — supposedly, Katy stole Tay’s backup dancers a hundred years ago and they’re still not over it because “Bad Blood” is all about how much they still hate each other, plus the fact that every famous woman ever was in the “Bad Blood” video, purportedly so Taylor could show Katy how popular she is, because as we all learned in middle school, your character is determined by how many BFFs you have.
So, naturally, it should come as a surprise to no one that Katy is weighing in on Taylor’s more recent feud — with Nicki Minaj — and she’s not holding back.
It all started Tuesday, when Nicki took to Twitter to complain about how her song, “Anaconda,” was only nominated for two VMAs, instead of four. It broke streaming records, so obviously it deserves every award, she said (OK, I’m paraphrasing). Then she threw some shade at Tay Tay, whose “Bad Blood” video also broke streaming records and got a Video of the Year nomination, unlike “Anaconda.”
If I was a different "kind" of artist, Anaconda would be nominated for best choreo and vid of the year as well. 😊😊😊

Taylor tweeted back, fans got involved, everyone thought Kim Kardashian was in the middle of it, etc. If you’re into celebrity catfghts, grab your popcorn and settle in.
Now, Katy has jumped into the fray, and considering her ongoing beef with T-Swift, we probably don’t need to tell you whose side she took.
Finding it ironic to parade the pit women against other women argument about as one unmeasurably capitalizes on the take down of a woman…

And then Nicki, who has clearly given up on trying to pretend her tweets weren’t directed at Taylor, favorited the tweet.
Will this be the end of it? Or will Taylor fight back? We’re sure we’ll find out soon enough.
