Katy Perry was asked about her rumored Taylor Swift diss track, “Swish, Swish,” during last night’s episode of The Tonight Show and her response may have been yet another diss.
Although Perry chose to play coy about whether or not her latest single was aimed at Swift, she confirmed “Swish, Swish” was inspired by someone who attempted to bully her.
“I think it’s a great anthem for people to use whenever someone’s trying to hold you down or bully you,” she explained to host Jimmy Fallon, via Us Weekly.
“That’s kind of what this record is about,” Perry continued. “It’s just, like, 360-degree liberation. ‘Chained to the Rhythm’ was this political liberation, ‘Bon Appétit’ was this sexual liberation’ and now I think this, ‘Swish,’ represents the liberation from all the negative that doesn’t serve you.”
‘Swish, Swish’ sounds like a response to ‘Bad Blood’
Perry may be refusing to confirm the person behind her new track but the majority of fans are convinced that the song is a response to Swift’s 2014 hit “Bad Blood,” which speaks of a friendship turned sour.
As fans may recall, Perry and Swift were close in 2009 and 2010 but by 2012, things between them reportedly took a turn for the worse after Perry allegedly stole a few of Swift’s tour dancers.
Taylor Swift is staying quiet
For the past several months, Swift has been keeping a low profile as she continues work on her new album. In fact, throughout the entirety of this year, she’s been seen just a few times.
