Taylor Swift is trying hard to clean up the feud that she unwittingly started with Katy Perry over her song “Bad Blood.” Back in September 2014, she told “Rolling Stone” the details surrounding the song, leading everyone to assume it was about Katy Perry. Now, in the new issue of “GQ”, she says that is not the case.
She told the magazine, “The fact that I’ve never confirmed who those songs are about makes me feel like there is still one card I’m holding.”
When asked about Katy and the song, she said, “You’re in a Rolling Stone interview, and the writer says, ‘Who is that song about? That sounds like a really intense moment from your life.’ And you sit there, and you know you’re on good terms with your ex-boyfriend, and you don’t want him – or his family – to think you’re firing shots at him. So you say, ‘That was about losing a friend.’ And that’s basically all you say.”
She went on to say, “I never said anything that would point a finger in the specific direction of one specific person, and I can sleep at night knowing that. I knew the song would be assigned to a person, and the easiest mark was someone who I didn’t want to be labeled with this song. I don’t necessarily care who people think it’s about. I just needed to divert them away from the easiest target. Listen to the song. It doesn’t point to any one person or any one situation.”
