Taylor Swift isn’t just turning heads with her announcement she’s decided to take her music pop for her new album, “1989′, or because of the cover of the new Rolling Stone. She’s also getting attention for a rift that seems to have formed between her and another artist.
The album has a song on it called “Bad Blood” and fans want to know who inspired it. After dropping hints about it in Rolling Stone fans trying to put together the puzzle and they’re pointing the finger at Katy Perry.
Taylor said “Bad Blood” came about after an unnamed female singer sabotaged her “Red” tour by trying to “hire a bunch of people out from under [her],” calling the move “so horrible.” Some Twitter users discovered that some of Taylor’s “Red” dancers did end up leaving her tour to be on Katy’s “Prism” tour, and others made the connection they share an ex-boyfriend, John Mayer. Some even think Katy may have responded in a tweet with a “Mean Girls” reference, writing “Watch out for the Regina George in sheep’s clothing.”
Another battle built into the record was one with her record label, Big Machine Records. Big Machine is a country label, and has been Taylor’s home since she started. Taylor says when she first turned in the record to them, Big Machine label head Scott Borchetta begged for more saying, “This is extraordinary – it’s the best album you’ve ever done,” but asked “Can you just give me three country songs?” Taylor’s response? “Love you, mean it … but this is how it’s going to be.”
