Taylor Swift Finally Talks About Katy Perry Feud

by Sofia Barrett-Ibarria

Taylor Swift has finally spoken out about her alleged feud with Katy Perry, but don't expect any sordid details involving mutual ex John Mayer or stolen backup dancers. In an interview with The Telegraph , Swift admitted that, while she's known to show up at fans' weddings and send them gifts, being America's impossibly nice sweetheart all the time can be exhausting.

"That’s annoying" she said. "And it’s not real if someone appears to never have any issues with anyone. I have my friends, I have enemies. I have bad days when I don’t want to go to a photo shoot, but I’m not going to show up four hours late, I’m going to be there on time. I’m not nice all the time but I try not to be carelessly rude to people who don’t deserve it."

Swift goes on to say that sometimes she engages in civilian activities with friends like dissing basics. "When I’m with my friends," she said, "we don’t say glowing things about everybody [...] 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." Swift spoke candidly about the fact that she has "enemies" and people she doesn't like, but she stopped short of naming names.


Surprisingly for someone who's written scathing breakup songs that seem to heavily reference a specific member of One Direction, for example, Swift didn't have much she cared to say about the supposed feud with Perry. "I'm not giving them anything to write about," Swift said. "I'm never going to talk about her in my interview. It's not going to happen." It's entirely possible that the Swift-Perry drama isn't entirely fabricated, and Swift seems to suggest that she isn't above a good old-fashioned celebrity feud. For all we know, there could have very well been some "bad blood" between the two, but Swift says she'll never tell.
