Is Katy Perry's New Song, '1984', A Response To Taylor Swift's 'Bad Blood'? (PICS)

Katy Perry looks set to hit back at her rival, Taylor Swift, in a new song.


Katy is thought to be the inspiration for Taylor’s latest single, ‘Bad Blood’, which she has admitted is about a fall-out with a fellow popstar, though she’s never specified who.

Speaking before the release of her album, Taylor told Rolling Stone she was “straight-up enemies” with the subject of the song, adding: “She would come up at awards shows, say something and walk away, and I would think, ‘Are we friends or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?’"

It has now been reported that Katy is to hit back with her own track, ‘1984’, thought to be a reference to to Taylor’s chart-topping album, ‘1989’, after a song was registered in her name under that title.

The majority of Katy’s best-known hits, including ‘California Gurls’, ‘I Kissed A Girl’, ‘Roar’ and ‘Dark Horse’ were co-written or produced by Max Martin, who was also behind ‘Bad Blood’, but it should be noted that ‘1984’ lists different co-writers to her usual collaborators.

What’s more, Katy is one of several about to appear in Madonna’s upcoming ‘Bitch I’m Madonna’ music video, which looks like it could be set to topple Taylor’s ‘Bad Blood’ clip as the most star-studded of the year.
