The songwriter is no stranger to drama. Taylor Swift has written many songs about her exes that have gone on to become hits, but it doesn’t stop there. She has also feuded with many celebrities in the industry over dancers, friends, lyrics, and so much more.
So who has had bad blood with Swift? Here are 10 celebrities who have feuded with the singer.
1. Katy Perry
The two pop stars started out as friends, but their relationship reportedly soured when Swift hired Katy Perry’s dancers for her Red album tour. According to Digital Spy, a dancer named Lockhart Brownlie claimed that she and two other dancers who were working for Swift at the time, were asked if they would like to work on Perry’s new tour. However, to do so they would have to leave Swift’s tour early. All three took Perry up on her offer.
Swift got her revenge in her traditional way, she wrote a hit song about it. “Bad Blood” became a huge success and when asked about the meaning behind it she said, “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?’” Swift didn’t call out Perry by name although the rumors were flying about the dancer drama.
Talk show host, Andy Cohen then confirmed that the two were feuding in his book, Superficial: More Adventures From the Andy Cohen Diaries. Apparently Taylor Swift lashed out when he mentioned Perry to her, then allegedly asked him to not talk about their conversation on his show.
He reportedly pointed out that Perry was in the room sitting alone, and when Taylor asked him who he was talking about things got interesting. “I said, ‘Perry,’ at which point she clearly let me know that she’s the exact opposite of her friend,” he wrote. “I kind of gasped, realizing she was in the most famous feud of all the feuds. ” She then reportedly told him “not to say a word about this on my show, and said that she’s watching.” Cohen said that he, “sputtered that I had no plans to say a word about it on my show — as a matter of fact, I silently vowed to stop playing into the hype that she created around her song ‘Bad Blood.’ She didn’t threaten me about putting it in my book, so here we are.”
