Katy Perry Finally Released Her T Swift Diss Track
Last night, Katy Perry decided it was time to drop yet ANOTHER track from â€œWitness,â€ her new album that nobody seems super excited about besides her.
And since she just announced her album was available for pre-order, she knew whatever song she released had to get people really excited. So she sat down and asked herself, â€œGee, whatâ€™s the one thing people really care about when it comes to me?â€
After searching her soul long and hard, she realized the answer was right in front of her all along. Taylor Swift.
So she released a Taylor Swift diss track.
Swish swish, bitch.
Katy Perry isnâ€™t exactly known for her subtlety, and unsurprisingly, nothing about â€œSwish Swishâ€ is subtle.
Not the lyrics, which include lines like â€œyouâ€™re calculated,â€ â€œyou should retire,â€ and â€œdonâ€™t you come for me.â€
Not the album artwork, which features a manicured hand holding a series of receipts from â€œKarma coffee & tea.â€
Not the fact that the song features Nicki Minaj, who’s clearly not going to stop shading her own personal Taylor Swift â€” Remy Ma â€” anytime soon.
And not the fact that the title of the song sort of sounds like Taylor Swiftâ€™s last name.
Thereâ€™s even a direct reference to Taylor in the first verse when Katy sings, â€œdonâ€™t need opinions from a shellfish or a sheep.â€
Back in 2014 when Taylor told Rolling Stone that â€œBad Bloodâ€ was about a female pop star, Katy just so happened to tweet, â€œwatch out for the Regina George in sheepâ€™s clothing…â€

And weâ€™re not the only ones to notice.
Because â€œSwish Swishâ€ wasnâ€™t trying to hide anything.
And Ruby Rose for one feels very butt hurt about it.
The known member of Taylorâ€™s squad tweeted, â€œâ€˜Purposeful poopâ€™ to â€˜bomb a petitâ€™ to a sloppy mess of writing over the top of Funkagenda…stop trying to make â€˜Wit..I mean ‘fetch’ happen.â€

TBH, Ruby Rose really knows how to be rude.
She gets the names of Katyâ€™s songs wrong, she insults their quality, and she calls Katy out for being so extra.
Itâ€™s incredibly impressive and deserves to be immortalized in the hall of insults right next to â€œI donâ€™t know her.â€
Ruby Rose then continued by saying, â€œI just think with everything going on n the world to go from rebranding as political activist only to ditch it and go low..is..a bummer.â€

Once again, sheâ€™s not wrong.
Weâ€™ve been saying this for weeks now.
Katy Perryâ€™s woke persona has one million holes in it by now and it does kind of seem like now that sheâ€™s in full-out pop star mode again, sheâ€™s mostly much tossed it aside.
Although to pull out the receipts on Katy for just a second, she did just tell Entertainment WeeklyÂ she thinks women are stronger when they stand together instead of tearing each other down, which low key makes her a hypocrite for releasing this song.
And if we really want to get technical about it, â€œSwish Swishâ€ shouldnâ€™t really count as a clap back track.
By definition clap backs need to be timely and â€œBad Bloodâ€ come out YEARS ago.
If she would have come out with this song two years ago, it would have been fire. It would have been like Nicki Minajâ€™s â€œNo Frauds.â€
Plus these days everybody shades Taylor so much that she doesnâ€™t really need to be taken down a few pegs.
Sheâ€™s already at the bottom of the ladder.
But what can you do?
Either way, the song is a banger, even if it is a relatively toothless one.
Bon appetite, bitches.
