There’s true bad blood between Katy Perry and Taylor Swift as the “Dark Horse” singer chimed in on the Twitter fight Swift managed to get herself into with Nicki Minaj.
On Wednesday, Perry took to Twitter saying:
Finding it ironic to parade the pit women against other women argument about as one unmeasurably capitalizes on the take down of a woman…

In case you don’t see irony between the lines: Swift messaged Minaj on Twitter after taking offense at the rapper’s comments about her exclusion from the VMAs 2009 video of the year nominees.
Swift had breathlessly began her speech with the words, “I always wondered what it would be like to maybe win one of these some day, but never actually thought it would happen” when the rapper took to stage to unleash an astonishing rant during an acceptance speech of the country singer when she was receiving the award.
He turned to the audience and announced that the prize got into wrong hands as it should’ve been given to his friend Beyonce, for her Single Ladies.
“Yo Taylor,” he said at the time. “I’m really happy for you, I’m going to let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time.”
Perry’s twit came a day after Minaj took to Twitter referring to Swift to which she replied:
@NICKIMINAJ I've done nothing but love & support you. It's unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot..

Minaj shut Swift down, swearing that her posts had nothing to do with her, and had even less patience for the singer when Swift responded, “If I win, please come up with me!! You’re invited to any stage I’m ever on.”
Later Katy Perry remembered the VMA nominations once againg and said that “the real travesty” was that Rihanna’s controversial video for Bitch Better Have My Money was overlooked.
The “Bad Blood” song appeared to be quite controversial for Swift as the singer has been accused of copying a popular Korean girl group’s music video to make her own one.
“@NICKIMINAJ can we talk about how taylor’s video isn’t original and was copied from a group of four WOC, 2NE1,” wrote pro-Minaj fan on Twitter, posting some stills from both videos, which when juxtaposed look like they came from the exact same storyboard.
However, the two videos have nothing in common when it comes to plot; Taylor’s sees her play an OTT movie-style secret agent betrayed by Selena Gomez, who trains with a host of other celebs before facing off against Gomez again at the end.
“But while the stories might not match, the overall futuristic feel and setting are very similar – and some of the individual scenes are practically carbon copies,” The Daily Mail says.
“One particularly striking similar image sees both singers walking down a tunnel with a flare held aloft. Both videos culminate with a squad of armed girls slowly stalking towards the camera. While one is set in London and the other in an unnamed futuristic city, both videos open with an almost identical slow zoom on their respective cityscapes before passing through a window,” the publication concluded.
