Katy Perry Jumps Into Twitter Debate Between Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj
Perry calls Swift's comments to Minaj "ironic" after the latter two have tense exchange over VMA nominations
It looks like a little more “Bad Blood” may have just been spilled.
In her own Twitter post, quickly retweeted by tens of thousands, Perry, 30 – without naming names – seemed to suggest it was “ironic” that Swift had criticized Minaj for starting a feud between two women, when Swift herself seemed to be fanning such flames.
Perry’s words followed Swift’s Tweet from Tuesday in which she responded to Minaj’s Tweet about not getting an MTV Video Music Awards nomination for Video of the Year. Minaj, 32, said she’d have to put “women with very slim bodies” in a video to get a nod, which Swift, 25, took as a reference to her. (Minaj later said it wasn’t, and they seemed to half-patch things up.)
After a conciliatory Tweet, Swift left the topic alone, though Minaj linked to a number of articles about the dustup on Wednesday.
Perry’s Tweet on Wednesday fanned the flames of a rumored long-running feud with Swift, and many believe Swift’s hit song “Bad Blood” is about Perry.
Will Swift fire back at Perry? Don’t count on it. Swift has already vowed not to talk about her in public.
