Why Won’t Taylor Swift Discuss Katy Perry?



Although she gave previously hinted that her song Bad Blood was about fellow chart topper  Katy Perry, Taylor Swift has refused to confirm rumours of a celebrity feud saying Perry is one topic that she won’t be opening up about.


It seems that 2015 might be the year that Taylor Swift is letting go of all her celebrity feuds. After burying the hatchet with Kanye West earlier in 2015, the 25 year old ‘Shake It Off’ singer was recently interviewed by UK publication The Telegraph. “I’m not giving them anything to write about,” she said, “I’m never going to talk about her in my interview. It’s not going to happen.”


In a previous interview with Rolling Stone magazine Swift discussed her track Bad Blood which detailed her relationship with a fellow female singer which many have hypothesized was about Perry.

“For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not,” Swift said. “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?'”

“She did something so horrible. 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.”


Swift was more open to discuss other relationships in her life, talking about friends Lorde, Lena Dunham, Karlie Kloss and Jaime King (who recently named Swift as the godmother to her second child).

“The thing about my girlfriends right now is that none of them needs me for anything other than friendship,” she said. “I love the fact that they are all passionate about their jobs, whatever their jobs are. A lot of celebrity-type people have this group of people around them where their friends’ main priority is them, and they feel comfortable with that dynamic. I don’t feel comfortable with that dynamic.”


She even went as far as to say that she’s known to gossip from time to time “”When I’m with my friends, we don’t say glowing things about everybody,” she says. “We’re not sitting around going, ‘You know who’s really special and wonderful?’ That’s not what we talk about — we’re normal girlfriends.”
