Katy Perry Explains Meaning of 'Swish Swish,' Says It's About Bullies

Katy Perry is opening up about the meaning of her song “Swish Swish,” which lots of people think is about her feud with Taylor Swift.

The 32-year-old singer explained the true meaning of the song during her interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Friday (May 19) in New York City.

LISTEN NOW: Hear the new song “Swish Swish”

“I think it’s a great anthem for people to use whenever someone’s trying to hold you down or bully you,” Katy said. “That’s kind of what this record is about, it’s just like [a] 360-degree liberation.”

Katy said that “Chained to the Rhythm” was a political liberation, “Bon Appetit” was a sexual liberation, and now “Swish represents the liberation from all the negative that doesn’t serve you.”
