Katy Perry Vs. Taylor Swift: Where Did It All Go Wrong?

UPDATE: Say what? Katy Perry just revealed that she’s willing to make music with Taylor Swift, but only under one condition. When asked by a fan on Twitter if she would collab with Swift, Perry responded, “if she says sorry, sure!” Wow! Talk about a change of heart.

Uh oh. Things are really starting to heat up between Katy Perry and Taylor Swift. Before I take you through a speedy version of Katy and Taylor’s history, it’s important to mention that Katy Perry recently registered a song called “1984” to BMI, a major music publisher. So, what’s the big deal? Some are speculating that this could be Perry’s comeback to Swift’s “Bad Blood” as the song is curiously similar to Taylor’s album titled 1989.

It’s been no secret that the two singers are in the middle of a so-called battle. Taylor doesn’t deny that her most recent song is about Katy. The “Bad Blood” singer told Rolling Stone another female pop-star. “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,” she said.

Back to the battle. Here’s a timeline of Katy and Taylor’s history. See where it all went sour.

2008: The start of their friendship happened at the 2008 MTV Movie Awards, where they posed for pictures together. Oh, the good ole days.

2009: The two met up again at the Grammys. Katy revealed she asked Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift (they shared a dressing room) for locks of their hair. She recalled, “I put little bows on them individually and put them in my purse. And that was my little secret and I’m a freak!”

2010: Katy joined Taylor on stage at her Los Angeles concert. The duo performed “Hot N Cold” together. Watch it below!

2011: Taylor won an award at the AMA’s and Katy congratulated her with a cute cuddle sesh.

2012: Katy begins dating Taylor’s ex John Mayer. Their relationship would span over the next two years.

2013: Katy attended the Grammys with Mayer and ran into Taylor. The two had a slightly awkward encounter, which makes us think this remark by Taylor could be aimed at Katy. “For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not. 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?'”

2014: Katy sends out a cryptic tweet right after the release of Taylor’s Rolling Stone cover story.

2015: In response to the feud, Katy told Billboard before her Super Bowl performance, “If somebody is trying to defame my character, you’re going to hear about it.”

Taylor releases the song “Bad Blood” and recruits all her famous BFF’s like Gigi Hadid, Jessica Alba, Lena Dunham and more to be in the video.

Katy definitely made the next move in legalizing the song “1984” so we will have to stay tuned to see how it all plays out. For the record, I’m Team Katy.

2016: One year later, we all know the lyrics to “Bad Blood,” but here’s a refresher because it’s important. “Cause baby now we got bad blood, you know it used to be mad love, so take a look what you’ve done, ‘cause baby now we got bad blood.”

Guess what? Katy Perry just released a fragrance called “Mad Love.” As E! News points out, “Mad Potion” was Katy’s first fragrance so this is simply a follow-up in the “Mad” collection, but the choice does seem pretty sus. The Katy-Taylor saga continues.

Are you team Katy or team Taylor?! Share in the comments.
