As we told you yesterday, there is a feud a-brewin’ between mega pop stars Taylor Swift and Katy Perry.
Taylor threw some shade at Katy Perry on the pages of Rolling Stone. Perry threw it right back at T Swift via Twitter.
We initially thought the genesis of the feud had something to do with Perry pilfering backup dancers from Swift. That’s part of the equation.
But, this one seems to go deeper.
In fact, it goes all the way back to the dark days of 2010, when Swift dated John Mayer.
If you recall, after the pair broke up, Swift wrote a song called “Dear John,” blaming Mayer for his mishandling of the relationship.
A couple years later, in 2012, Mayer and Perry began dating. And, like a snake in the garden, Mayer whispered his hatred of Taylor into Perry’s impressionable ears.
From then on, Perry had it out for Swift.
And this is where we’re at as a society.
