Right before the biggest gig of her career, Katy Perry decides to talk about her feud with Taylor Swift?
The “Roar” singer told Billboard that she’s not just gonna take hits and keep silent if someone’s bullying her. “If somebody is trying to defame my character,” she said in response to the feud, “you’re going to hear about it.” US Weekly reports:
Swift and Perry’s public spat began last fall when the 1989 songstress revealed in a Rolling Stone interview that one of her singles, “Bad Blood,” was written for an unnamed mean girl. Swift described the fellow pop star as her “straight-up enemy” and claimed that the individual “did something so horrible.” More details on the feud here.
The day after the story went live, Perry fueled speculation by tweeting: “Watch out for the Regina George in sheep’s clothing…”
Us Weekly later confirmed that Swift’s dig was, in fact, written for Perry. “Katy knows Taylor’s song is about her, which is why she tweeted that,” one insider told Us at the time, saying both hitmakers (also exes of John Mayer) were “very competitive.” (In the months following, Perry’s then-boyfriend Diplo got involved in the feud, as well as Swift’s best friend Lorde, who rushed to the “Blank Space” songstress’ defense.)
Perry’s somewhat-threatening promise coincides with her pending halftime show performance at Super Bowl XLIX, which seems like, WAY more important than talking about some silly feud, I think. Still, I wonder what “terrible things” these two have REALLY done to each other…

Madonna won’t preach…but she IS a big fan of Taylor Swift!
People reports that Madonna approves of the Blank Space singer, she noted in an Australian interview:
“It’s good to have some princesses [of pop]. It means there’s a lot of pretty dresses around,” the “Living for Love” singer told Richard Wilkins of Australia’s Today show. “I like Taylor Swift. I think she writes some really catchy pop songs. I can’t get them out of my head.”
Swift was like, beside herself.
“Thanks now I’m dead,” the “Blank Space” singer posted on Tumblr shortly after the flattery was picked up. “#HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO DEAL WITH THIS. #BE COOL TAYLOR STOP BEING EMBARRASSING.”
Madonna isn’t the first pop diva to sing Swift’s praises- Lady Gaga also told Howard Stern she was a fan of the 1989 artist last year.
Now, this isn’t surprising- I feel like Madonna only approves of people publicly, she never really trashes anyone. But does anyone else have a problem with Madonna alluding to herself as the Queen of Pop? Not saying it’s not true, but c’mon. Humility, Madge…

Taylor Swift apparently left a blank space…for some hackers to infiltrate!
TMZ reports that the Lizzard Squad, a group of hardcore hackers, infiltrated Taylor’s twitter feed this morning and are threatening to release nude pics of Taylor… for a price!
This morning, multiple tweets went out from Swift’s twitter account telling her 51 million followers to follow @lizzard and @veriuser both of whom claim to be tied to a group of hackers called the Lizzard Squad. The messages also posted on her Instagram account. She quickly used her Tumblr to inform fans of the security breach, and twitter has shut down the illegal hackers’ accounts. Still…
The Lizzard Squad talks a high game- the group claimed to have hacked major gaming systems Sony PlayStation and Xbox Live last year. They also claim to be behind yesterday’s Facebook and Instagram outage.
Now, they wanna show Taylor’s X rateds to the world!
We’ll keep you updated on how this story develops- poor Taylor doesn’t deserve this, nor does any public figure. Hopefully the hackers get shut down before the world sees Taylor’s naughties.
