In case you had any doubt that the bad blood between Taylor and Katy is still pumping, Perry took dead aim at her rival in a recent interview with Vogue.
Check out this excerpt from the piece:
“I don’t think you have to shout it from the rooftops but I think you have to stand for something, and if you’re not standing for anything,” she adds pointedly, perhaps aiming at some of her deliberately apolitical confreres, “you’re really just serving yourself, period, end of story.
“‘California Gurls’ and fluffy stuff would be completely inauthentic to who I am now and what I’ve learned. I do believe we need a little escapism, but I think that it can’t all be that. If you have a voice you have a responsibility to use it now, more than ever.”
Yes, in case you missed the diss, Vogue went and spelled it out for you:
This here is some shade.
In context, the burn is even more apparent, as that quote comes directly comes directly on the heels of Katy discussing the importance of “innuendo” and “subtext” in getting your message across.
She’s basically teaching a master class in trash-talk here, folks.
You may want to take notes.
