Katy Perry Talks Taylor Swift Feud: 'She Started It'

Katy Perry is finally formally addressing her infamous feud with Taylor Swift!

During the Late Late Show Primetime Special, the 32-year-old entertainer revealed that she actually tried to end the drama with Taylor before she released “Bad Blood.”

“There’s a situation. Honestly, it’s really like she started it, and it’s time for her to finish it,” Katy began.

She continued, “I tried to talk to her about it and she wouldn’t speak to me…I do the right thing any time that it feels like a fumble. It was a full shutdown and then she writes a song about me, and I’m like, OK, cool, cool, cool, that’s how you want to deal with it? Karma!”

Katy added that she just wanted the drama to be done with but admitted that she felt she had to respond to Taylor.

“But what I want to say is that I’m ready for that BS to be done. Now, there is the law of cause and effect. You do something, there’s going to be a reaction, and trust me daddy, there’s going to be a reaction. It’s all about karma, right? I think personally that women together, not divided, and none of this petty bulls**t, women together will heal the world,” Katy said.

    It is time this “beef” ends. Katy keeps bringing it up and honestly it just needs to stop. I’m proud of Tay for not engaging in this anymore, especially since there is a lot more going on right now that we should be focusing on.

  • Mohamad Hashem

    You cannot start a beef and not expect consequences, Tay started it. Katy wont go down wo a fight.

  • jh7058622

    Oh whatever. Taylor made an entire song about it. She’s no better than Katy. At least Katy wants to move on Taylorbis just being petty and Mean Girlish trying to gang up on Katy with her hordes or bimbo squad.

    They are both terrible but I believe Katy when she says she tried to fix it but Taylor wouldn’t have it.

  • Jazmin Navarro

    ??? We literally hadn’t heard about this feud for a long time before Katy Perry started bringing it up again. She put out a song shading Taylor Swift and says shit about women being united and complains about having Bad Blood written about her. Like, okay, if she thought that was so bad and was going to complain about it, why turn around and do the same thing? Thats not karma, that’s petty revenge and she has some nerve calling others petty while she acts the same. Also, I would’ve expected her song to be the end of it since Taylor Swift hasn’t talked about it for some time now, but then she comes back and complains like a little kid “Well she started it1!1!1!” Who gives a damn who started it? You’re continuing it. Be the mature one and end it. This whole “She started it she has to end it1!1!1 She owes me an apology but I owe her nothing but will continue with her name in my mouth until she does as I say” is annoying. She can’t expect an apology if she’s still talking shit.

  • Isata B

    Okay what were they fighting about

  • jh7058622

    She didn’t say that are you not paying attention? Idgaf so it’s a moot point at this point but she did say she tried to end it before Taylor made the damn song. Why does she owe the “bish” maturity?

  • Blake

    what is this? some gossip girl high school drama shit? now who stole whose dancers again?

  • Just Saying

    You use the word “steal” like Taylor OWNED those people. The dancers were just offered another job, one of them even said that he chose to leave Swift and go work with Katy because they weren’t doing anything while working with Taylor.

  • Just Saying

    A few years ago some of the dancers that were working with Taylor Swift on her tour decided to leave to work with Katy Perry instead. Taylor then said in an interview that Katy had tried to steal from her by hiring people form under her. Some of the dancers defended Katy Perry and left clear that they CHOSE to go work with her but Swift still acted like she owned them and they didn’t have the right of making a choice.

  • HG

    For both of their career’s sake, I think they both need to shove it aside and move on. I’m not taking anyone’s side, but this constant back and forth isn’t looking good for either of them. Hollyweird really is high school on steroids huh?

  • emos

    When did Taylor Swift act like she owned the dancers? When did Taylor say “Katy had tried to steal from her”? She never did. All Taylor said was “She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me.”

  • töltött káposzta

    a cat fight between two idiots

  • SaraJ

    Aaaand now karma for Katy? Her singles suck, she embarrassed herself on SNL (biggest cringe story of 2017 thus far) and her album’s gonna flop.

  • LittlePaperStars

    Taylor has always wreaked of Regina George

  • loserkan*ye

    Let us see. Of those who had a beef with Taylor, Kanye is done, and looks like now Katy is done too. Enjoy Katy’s last tour.

  • imsn

    But Katy started the feud …

  • Athena Politou

    Exactly! Now, Taylor could’ve written the song about those dancers but the whole “sabotaged by a fellow pop star” angle obviously sells more records. She’s so transparent at this point.

  • Athena Politou

    How? Because she offered work to dancers that weren’t even used in Tay’s show anyways? Taylor has played everyone with her “poor me” narrative.

  • Athena Politou

    I agree with Katy. Actions have consequences. Taylor has built her entire career on using people’s names to sell records and create buzz around otherwise cutesy songs. It’s just a successful marketing tactic to her but it has real consequences. Taylor can’t and won’t always get away with it.

  • Gleefan

    The dancers was NOT weren’t used, they was noticeably missing from Tay’s performance then show up in Katy’s side

  • :)

    Katy looks like the idiot here. The song Bad Blood may not have been about her. It was just an assumption. It sounds more like it was a feud between Taylor and someone behind the scenes in the music industry. That makes sense because of all the celebs in her video. I doubt all those girls would want the bad pr of trashing Katy.

  • Anna

    That has no relevance to Taylor being a shitshow. And this coming from someone who likes Taylor’s music and is waiting for her next album. Taylor is a bully who plays victim. Don’t bully others and expect others to take it and not hit back. She’s so used to her people taking care of celebs who call her out. Her PR people pay them to apologize or to shut it. All those men she wrote songs about, Katy is the only one hitting back and not rolling over. Taylor uses her ex’s and her feud with other women to sell records, and bring publicity to her when she’s NOT selling records and is on off season. She’s constantly on the move targeting and using people.

  • Isata B

    Thanks For the info. WOW Taylor Swift need to get over it. It was the dancers choice to leave, no one force them to😥😥😥😥😥

  • rubie

    Unfortunately, she is contradicting herself, she has been doing that a lot lately, she should just move on, perhaps she thinks this will boost record sales, it probably could, but TALENT doesn’t need gimmicks if the music is good , if the music speaks for itself….Girl, just let it be done, it doesn’t make you look good anymore, woman united, you’re doing the total opposite of that….

  • BrooklynMarie

    While I find some of her songs catchy, I haven’t been a fan of Swift personally since she tried to make Amy Poehler and Tina Fey look like the bad guys for a cracking a joke about her at the Golden Globes. I believe the quote Swift used when talking about them was “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.”

    Last time I checked, Amy and Tina have done more for empowering women than Swift has. Especially this past year, when women’s rights have been in jeopardy. The fact that Swift would even try to make people as harmless as Fey and Poehler look malicious while she plays the victim tells you all you need to know about her.

  • CatNip

    Katy …put that energy into resurrecting your dying career.

  • sydney jane

    There’s really only one way to settle this. Mud wrestling. With Daisy Dukes and bikinis on top. Ha!! I would say Team Katy, but she’s such a Hillary supporter that I just can’t.

  • http://www.paulwalkerfoundation.org RayonLight

    These two are the worst… both are clearly ego eccentric and driven by fame. I can’t believe they are as famous as they are and people look up at them as role models. Both are catty and immature, if only both can take some time off and just grow the hell up.

  • shoes4life

    Is she 12? Goodness, you’re suppose to be a grown a$$ woman leave this petty crap alone and go find yourself.

  • Visitor

    I’m waiting for some low rent award show like MTV Video Music Awards to exploit this by bringing the two on stage together to settle it.

  • Sprite

    Go4fun !!

  • briansbottom

    This is petty high school stuff. Both of them need to grow up and move on.

  • Shell

    I’m no fan of Taylor b ut Katy needs to be careful about the word Karma because she’s not exactly innocent herself when it comes to starting on people. In the last few months alone, she has started on Britney and Ed Sheeran and that doesn’t include the lesser known stars and fans she’s bitched about over the years yet when she’s called out on it, she claims she is just joking. When even some of your own fans are starting to get bored of the same crap, it’s time to rethink your plans.

  • LittlePaperStars

    Oh yeah, that’s better

  • SaraJ

    Kim & Kanye did not roll over.. they just did it in a better way than this pathetic little interview Katy did. “She did it first.” Wah, wah. Post proof and walk away. Or don’t continue it at all..
    Although I do agree with you about Taylor. But they are both lame for doing this.

  • SaraJ

    Katy only tried to fix it after breaking up with John Mayer who happened to date Taylor first…

  • Legendary Trolly

    She didnt start shat with Britney Lol Britney was a great part of pop culture history as far as pop stars going crazy. Katy made a reference about shaving her head, and you take that as a dig at Brittney. Katy, imo, is most likely a big fan of Brittney and would ever diss her

  • Fred1259

    Sniff is such an arrogant slut. The real truth comes out and Katy tried talking to Sniff but she didn’t want to listen. Grow up Sniff the slut.

  • Fred1259

    I agree with you and totally agree with Katy. Sniff cannot sing a song without referring to an ex. Cannot stand Sniff.

  • flying_coaster

    I do love her music, but Katy Perry doesn’t come across as overly bright. Then again, she did get herself in the news for a few days by leeching off of Swift’s fame. Still not taking my daughters to her shows.

  • Shell

    Katy has slated Britney many times over the years and I’m not just talking about the twice she started on her on the red carpet but when she’s called out about it, she says it’s nothing more than a joke. The proof is out there whether you believe it or not.

  • jh7058622

    So… maybe her apologizing was a reason they broke up (she wanted to/he didn’t want her to).

  • jh7058622

    So… maybe her apologizing was a reason they broke up (she wanted to/he didn’t want her to).

  • SaraJ

    No. They broke up because no one will marry her dumb ass. They get tired of her boobs, the personality and brain (and definitely musical skill) isn’t enough to stay and the guy says good-bye.

  • jh7058622

    Says the Taylor Swift supporter….

    And didn’t John Mayer just admit to still being in love with her? Also wasn’t she already married thus disproving your theory?

  • imsn

    the worked at Tay’s at th time..

  • SaraJ

    I definitely don’t care for Taylor Swift either, actually. Couldn’t care less about this stupid feud. But Katy Perry has always been talent-less.. now she’s just embarrassing with these comments, the shaved head after the Britney diss, etc.
    She and Russel Brand rushed into the quickie marriage, so nope it doesn’t disprove anything. Russell got out when he did because of the same reason.

  • Legendary Trolly

    Give me an example, because the head shaving comment wasnt a slight imo

  • jh7058622

    You keep missing the point though… that is that she tried who cares when as long as it was genuine?
