    Why The Internet Thinks Taylor Swift's Song 'Bad Blood' Is About Katy Perry

    Ain't no drama like T. Swift drama cause the T. Swift drama don't stop.

    As cover star of Rolling Stone's September issue, Taylor Swift told the magazine that "Bad Blood," a track off her upcoming album "1989," is aimed at a fellow pop star. Since then, the Internet has run wild with speculation: who in the depths of Hollywood could be, as she put it, "straight-up enemies" with T. Swift?

    Though everyone from Miley Cyrus to Carrie Underwood is considered a possible frenemy, the World Wide Web seems to focus its investigation on one prime suspect: Katy Perry.

    Why? Some have taken the easy route and pointed out that, helllloooooo, they have an ex-boyfriend in common:
    "And it wasn't even about a guy!" she told Rolling Stone. "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."

    Hmmm. Others have pointed out that, according to an article in the Examiner from December 2013, three of Swift's backup dancers left mid-tour to join Katy Perry's troupe.

    "I was with Taylor for the first six months,'' backup dancer John Brownlie told the Examiner. "It was a great experience and she's a great person to work with, but then Katy contacted us.''

    Brownlie, who had previously toured with Perry on her California Dreams world tour, told the Examiner, "Obviously we were with Katy for two and a half years. She's like family to us, so we were, like, 'absolutely.'"

    Unearthed Footage Of A Teenage Katy Perry Before She Was Famous

    "I have lots of songs to write about. Lots of things to write about." So says a teenage Katy Perry -- then Katy Hudson -- in a newly unearthed video from 2001 posted to Vimeo by award-winning cinematographer and videographer Jim Standridge.

    "I was very fortunate to meet and hangout with this genuine talent in the beginning of her career," Standridge wrote in a note accompanying the video. "The other day I was cleaning out some old footage in my office and found 90 minutes of raw footage I had totally forgot about. [...] I think Katy has grown into an amazing entertainer and woman."
    Standridge cut the 90 minutes down to just under 13, and the package showcases Perry's preternatural talent. Then a Christian singer-songwriter, Perry's work has an unmistakable Alanis Morisette vibe, but there are some guitar licks that also sound a little like early Radiohead (specifically from "The Bends"). The video closes, appropriately, with Perry singing "Last Call," one of the tracks from her 2001 album, "Katy Hudson."

    HuffPost Entertainment contacted a representative for Perry to see if the singer had any comment or remembrance about the video. This post will be updated if and when they respond. In the meantime, watch Standridge's video below.

    Katy Perry Leggy Luscious Cleopatra Performance at the BRIT Awards

    I'm not exactly sure who Katy Cocktease is supposed to be. I'm going with Cleopatra or somebody Egyptian. I suppose it ties in with one of her little pop ditties or something or maybe I'm missing out on a new wave of scarab inspired fashion. Nevertheless, I was mostly checking out her legs. Yes, Katy can cocktease even with her special gams, not quite as exceptional perhaps as her bodacious bosom but nevertheless, the worked out stems of a woman who prances the stage for a living.

    Someday, when Katy reveals herself in her entirety, as I have  foreseen in visions, maybe you'd call them masturbation fantasies, we shall see the entire package and her nickname will change. Until that time, it's all about trying to peek up her skirt at awards show acts. Hey, it's an honest living.

    23 Questions Raised By Katy Perry's Absurd 'Dark Horse' Video

    Katy Perry unveiled the video for "Dark Horse" on Thursday, and boy, do we have questions. Lots of them. Like: Why? Why is anything that happens in it happening?

    If you haven't watched, it appropriates ancient Egyptian culture and symbolism, and, well, that's about all we can tell you. We could pretend like we have all the answers, except we don't have a single answer. So here are a lot of questions raised by "Dark Horse."
    Katy Perry proved she was ready for a perfect storm on Thursday, dropping the music video to her latest single, "Dark Horse" (featuring Juicy J). The visuals are like, what? A nod to "Cleopatra"? A spoof of "Avatar"? Some random parody of Michael Jackson's "Remember The Time"? All of the above? None of the above? Watch below?

    Katy Perry Fingerbanged Anna Kendrick’s Cleavage

    Anna Kendrick talked about her Grammy experience on Conan the other night and spent what seemed like 5 whole minutes gushing over Beyonce. Then she casually mentioned Katy Perry fingerbanged her cleavage.

    Dear god, woman. You’re supposed to lead with stuff like that. Not say it as some afterthought in an interview.

    Kendrick said she was asking for it because of how she was dressed which I know is a joke but when I fingerbang her cleavage at the next event she’s at, that’s what my legal defense will be built on.

    Katy Perry On Supposed Lady Gaga Rivalry: 'You Can't Look At It Like A Competition'

    Lady Gaga and Katy Perry have been pitted against each other as pop rivals for the better part of the year. As dueling singles, albums, music videos and press opportunities have found critics and fans questioning which singer is the reigning princess of pop, Perry is speaking out to quash the rivalry image that exists between the two.

    “Gaga and I like to publicly dismiss it because it’s not healthy," Perry told Entertainment Weekly. "You want to feel music. You want it to resonate and relate to you. You can’t look at it like a competition because you ruin the reason why you love music. But I think that sometimes our fan groups are so big and strong, they use it as ammunition.”

    That "ammunition" first kicked into high gear when Gaga's "Applause" and Perry's "Roar" -- the lead singles from their respective albums, which arrive just a few weeks apart from each other -- leaked at the same time. Since then, it's been a tit-for-tat between the singers' fans. It's a bit easier for Perry to denounce any form of a "competition," as forecasts for the sales of the two singles indicated that Perry would come out on top by a wide margin. Indeed, "Roar" sold 557,000 digital copies, while "Applause" saw 218,000 downloads.

    In a year that's seen Joan Rivers, Sinead O'Connor, Cher and others speak out against Miley Cyrus' pop-culture reign, the conversation about fostering female rivalries in the media has escalated.

    "I just think it's very unfair of anyone to pit another woman against another woman, especially in the space of music, when we're all just trying to be taken seriously at all as females," Gaga told Andy Cohen in September during an appearance on "Watch What Happens Live."

    Now, as Gaga's "ARTPOP" makes its long-awaited debut on Nov. 11, the album will inevitably face comparisons with Perry's "Prism," which came out Oct. 18. "Prism" debuted at No. 1 with 286,000 copies sold. The next needless contest between the two women will center on which of them can produce the more impressive first-week sales. Perry topped Cyrus as the highest-selling debut of the year by a female artist. Can Gaga now top Perry? It's all in the "competition."

    Katy Perry Teases Up Two Cakes of Heat for the Echo Awards in Germany

    I can't say I'm highly familiar with the Echo Awards, but I assume it has something to do with audible sounds and contributions thereof to the world; that does little to explain Katy Cocktease and her central placement at the awards, but, perhaps the Echo Awards are all about finding hot, divorcee, divas who heavily flaunt their bodies and caress their delicious D-cups on stage for an adoring ogling public.

    There's no denying that Katy Perry has a certain quality that makes us badly want to see her, touch her, and for some of you out there, smell her, but it also frustrates us with how 'good girl' she suddenly claims to be when we get down to the nitty gritty. So many arbitrary rules, Still, an Echo Award. We're not sure, but we think that's prestigious. Enjoy.

    Katy Perry vs. Zoe Saldana – Fashion Faceoff

    Pop star Katy Perry and "Avatar" actress Zoe Saldana don't exactly have the same tastes in fashion. Katy prefers out-there ensembles, like the glow-in-the-dark gown she sported at the 2010 Met Gala, while Zoe usually opts for a more sophisticated and lady-like style. Recently, though, their closets collided when the two stepped out in very similar versions of a gold-and-white Balmain Spring 2012 mini dress just seven months apart. Now it's up to us to decide who wore it better!READ MORE HERE

    Singer Reveals She Was Told To Lie About Song's Origins

    Not only is Katy Perry's tune "Part Of Me" not about ex Russell Brand, but the singer recently revealed that she was told to lie about it.

    "Some people that I work with were like 'You should say you wrote it a couple weeks ago,'" Perry said of the her emotional Grammys tune, according to MTV news. "I'm like, 'I'm not a douchebag. I'm going to tell the truth."

    Perry's lyrics, "You can keep the diamond ring/It don't mean nothing anyway/ In fact, you can keep everything -- except for me," seemed to line up perfectly with her December split from husband Russell Brand, but Perry said the song was written back in 2010.

    "It feels like my life plays out with these songs," she said. "I feel like I'm in some kind of weird 'Truman Show' where I'm like, 'Why is thijavascript:void(0)s single appropriate now and it wouldn't have been appropriate then?' It's just so crazy."

    “It seems very serendipitous, but, as un-fun as it sounds, I prepare everything,” Perry continued. “I’m overly prepared and kind of a control freak in the best of ways.”

    Who's your friend, Russell? Brand relaxes poolside with a Katy Perry lookalike as his wife recovers from food poisoning

    At first glance, Russell Brand looks like he is having a whale of a time relaxing poolside in Los Angeles with wife Katy Perry.
    However, on closer inspection, the lady showing off her figure in a tight black swimsuit is not Katy, but a brunette who looks astonishingly like the Firework singer.
    Perhaps Brand's new friend was just keeping him company by the hotel pool in Miami as Katy was struck down with food poisoning over the weekend - so much so that she was forced to reschedule two of her planned concerts.
    She later promised: 'I am going to return in a few weeks to give them the very best show ever!'
    Brand wore a pair of white patterned swimming shorts as he chilled out with his new friend on Sunday.
    But Katy was clearly fully appraised of the situation as later in the day, the couple were seen out together stopping at a fruit stand in Los Angeles.
    The pictures of the pair together, a rarity in recent months, are set to dismiss rumours their nine-month marriage it in trouble.
    Chilling out: The pair looked comfortable in each other's company as they relaxed in the pool

    Katy Perry Insists New Smurfs Flick is Family-Friendly

    KATY Perry insists there will be none of her usual risqué antics on show when she takes to the big screen as a Smurf.

    The sexy singer — who’s married to British comedian Russell Brand — provides the voice of Smurfette in this summer’s Smurf movie but she insists her performance and animated alter ego, unlike her music videos, will be completely family friendly.

    “It’s a great film that all ages can enjoy,” says Katy.

    “There’s no sneaky innuendo’s or sort of taboo things. It’s a positive story, it has a sweet side, there’s a great message. It’s just one of those ‘you can’t go wrong’ type of films. It’s very family orientated.”

    Perry recently spoke of her love of the Smurfs.

    “I love the Smurfs,” she said.

    “They’re so cute. I want all the t-shirts and toys even now. In fact I should be getting them free with me being Smurfette. I can start a whole collection.”

    Katy Perry Talks Universal Healthcare, Billboard Success in Rolling Stone

    She's one of the biggest stars in the world, but in her music, equal rights activism and, now, politics, Katy Perry is a woman of the people.

    The "Teenage Dream" star covers this week's issue of Rolling Stone, and talks, among other things, her political awakening, saying that she's starting to understand just how big money runs the country.

    "It just feels like the thing running our country is a bank, money," she tells the magazine. "I think we are largely in desperate need of revolutionary change in the way our mindset is. Our priority is fame, and people's wellness is way low. I saw this knowing full well that I'm a part of the problem. I'm playing the game, though I am trying to reroute. Anyway, not to get all politically divulging and introspective, but the fact that America doesn't have free health care drives me f*cking absolutely crazy, and is so wrong."

    Perry has already been active in fighting for gay rights; of course, her breakout single, "I Kissed A Girl," teased a sort of "just to try it" lesbianism, but she's been involved in a more serious fight, too.

    She dedicated her gay-friendly song and music video "Fireworks" to the It Gets Better video initiative, and told DoSomething.org in November that, "I am a gay activist and I say that proudly."
