Katy Perry has apparently accused her rival Taylor Swift of “capitalizing on the take-down of a woman”.
Just a day after a Twitter catfight between Nicki Minaj and the pop princess, the Dark Horse singer chimed in on the feud with some rather obvious comments aimed at Swift.
The 30-year-old singer took to social media on Wednesday to slam Taylor, 25, who she has “Bad Blood” with already.
The California Girls hitmaker tweeted to her 72.9million followers: ‘Finding it ironic to parade the pit women against other women argument about as one unmeasurably capitalizes on the take down of a woman…’
Taylor’s latest hit song was reportedly directed at Katy.
This all began last September when Taylor said in an interview with Rolling Stone that her song Bad Blood was about a female musician ,referring to a “straight up enemy”.
Katy then tweeted with a Mean Girl’s reference, “Watch out for the Regina George in sheep’s clothing.”
The pop stars have been in each other’s paths for many years, and the pair even seemed to be friends for a while, gladly posing for photos together.
Taylor elaborated more to the music publication, “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?’
“Then last year, the other star crossed a line. She did something so horrible, I was like, ‘Oh, we’re just straight-up enemies’. And it wasn’t even about a guy! 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.”
The two share more than dancers in common as Katy is currently dating musician John Mayer, who Taylor famously dated in the Fall of 2009.
On Wednesday, Nicki Minaj attempted to clarify her posts, sharing a screenshot of a Marie Claire article along with a lengthy caption thanking certain media outlets that she felt helped maker her point.
She wrote, “Nothing to do with any of the women, but everything to do with a system that doesn’t credit black women for their contributions to pop culture as freely/quickly as they reward others. We are huge trendsetters, not second class citizens that get thrown crumbs. This isn’t anger. This is #information.”
The rapper finished up the post with a rather positive message aimed toward MTV, as she previously hit out at the music channel for the amount of nominations she initially received.
She adds, “It’s all love to MTV. Kisses to my fans and thank you for my 3 nominations.”
That’s more like it!
Katy is just the latest celebrity to join in on the online feud between Taylor and 32-year-old Nicki Minaj as even Kim Kardashian unwittingly became embroiled in the public feud.
Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul even offered to help settle the beef.
The 35-year-old actor, who starred as Jesse in AMC’s hit TV series, tweeted, “I love you both. How about we all get together and talk this thru? Coffee? Pancakes?? My treat.”
Kim Kardashian, 34, got caught up in the Twitter fight when she posted a photo from her Vogue Spain shoot and captioned it: ‘Imma let you finish but…’
The picture showed her sipping on a cup of tea but Twitter users were quick to interpret it as the reality star wading in and casting shade on Swift.
Kim’s husband Kanye West infamously jumped up on stage at the 2009 VMAs, took the microphone from Swift who had just received the award for Best Female Video and gave a speech that’s become known as the ‘Imma let you finish’ speech.
The star, who’s pregnant with her second child, quickly moved to clear up any misunderstanding.
Kim told her followers she was in Paris, where it was the middle of the night, ‘not having a clue what’s going on in the music world.’
She said she’d chosen the caption because it was ‘perfect for that pic’ but was changing it now she realized how others were interpreting it.
Moby, real name Richard Melville Hall, chimed in on what Nicki Minaj had to say as he stopped for a chat with and explained that the Truffle Butter hitmaker should be happy she even has a career.
The 49-year-old singer told TMZ, “Far be it from me to criticize someone else’s perspective but like if you’re a musician and you’re making records in 2015 and you can make a living making music, you should just be pretty grateful.”
Bruno Mars joked about the silly feud, sending a message to Ed Sheeran, stating, “Yo I want in on this twitter Beef!! VMAs is the new WWF!! @edsheera f*** You!”
The British singer and songwriter replied with ‘any way we do this you gon’ come up short.’
Bruno hit back with, “That Cut deep… U always know how to sheer me to the core. I can’t believe we’re Sheeran this in public. How dare u!”
