Watching Katy Perry Almost Tear Up While An Interviewer Grills Her About Taylor Swift Is A+ Stuff
Oh my goodness that was brutal. I’ve been enjoying catching up on the Katy Perry vs Taylor Swift feud this week and it’s even better than I ever imagined it would be. Katy takes L after L after L, and this is just icing on the cake. I don’t know who that host interviewer lady is, but give her a raise. Give her all the money possible. She’s so far on Team Taylor that she made Katy Perry cry. Katy had absolutely no response to how she felt about Taylor dropping all her music back on Spotify on album release day. None. Just held back tears and prayed the interview would end.
And you know the even sadder part? Katy is using Taylor to promote her album and it’s backfiring right in her face. Because what’s even funnier is Taylor refuses to even mention Katy in interviews. Won’t let the interviewer bring Katy up because that’s how little she cares about her:
Also, her new album SUCKS and is getting bashed left and right. Noted singer/songwriter Sufjan Stevens wrote this about it:
Spin magazine said:
Spin – “Katy Perry Now Going Door-to-Door Trying to Shock People” does not quite have the ring of one of the Onion’s most famous headlines, but it is an approximate description of Perry’s strategy for promoting her new album Witness. The offensive included a protracted campaign around cherry pies for her wink-wink second single “Bon Appétit,” and a clumsily confrontational performance of the Taylor Swift diss track “Swish Swish” on Saturday Night Live.
The question, of course, is where Perry goes from here. Unlike other pop stars, her career has never been driven by the sort of artistic muse that leads to seamless and rewarding reinventions. She is not Taylor Swift or Beyoncé. She was instead just a singer with an artillery of undeniable pop songs, but Witness argues that her stockpile is all but depleted.
Headshot. I love it. Taylor is somewhere on a yacht drinking champagne out of diamond, loving every second of this. Come at Taylor, you best not miss. And boy did Katy miss.
