Taylor Swift vs. Katy Perry: Whose Gang Would Win in a Duel?
There are few guarantees in life: Death is one of them, and a highly publicized feud between two pop stars is the other.
So, alright: Taylor Swift never specifically names names -- not even when she spells out clues in her liner notes: She may or may not have written the majority of Red about Jake Gyllenhaal. 1989 probably is (but we'll never really know for sure) about Harry Styles. Her life has long been scrutinized in the public eye, and frankly, Taylor is so over the drama of it all.
Well. She's almost over the drama of it all, except for the fact that she wrote a diss track ("Bad Blood") about someone. And talked about it in a major publication...all while refusing to reveal the identity of its subject. It's most definitely about Katy Perry, because Taylor is bad at subtlety.
Katy hit back at Taylor with a tweet, and we've since been frothing at the mouth for more, which we're hoping to get from Taylor's upcoming "Bad Blood" video. The only thing left for us to do is to pit the two of them against each other, which begs the question: Whose gang would win in a duel?
Taylor has, some would say , an excessive amount of fast friends on her side. Her upcoming "Bad Blood" video features nearly every single person she has met and befriended over the past few years, from Hollywood babies like Zendaya, Gigi Hadid and Hailee Steinfeld to more established stars like Kendrick Lamar, Hayley Williams and Lena Dunham. (Other friends not mentioned: Nearly every person Taylor has met who is not Katy Perry or Joe Jonas, probably.)
What Katy may lack in friend numbers, she more than makes up for in Rihanna. Because if there's anyone who can crush it -- "it" being egos, hearts and probably skulls -- it's Rihanna. Do you remember the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards? Because the Internet does. The two sat there and laughed at the ridiculousness of it all and provided a GIF for every situation imaginable.
Plus, Rihanna never holds back about anything ever. Katy also has her mean-girl maybe-boyfriend Diplo on her side, who has said increasingly rude things about Taylor on Twitter and beyond. There's also Katy's now legendary Super Bowl halftime friend, Left Shark, who...may actually prove to be more of a hindrance than a help with his severe lack of motor skills. But in the end, he is still a shark. Sort of.
Be the change you wish to see in the world and decide: Whose gang would win in a fight? Would Taylor win due to sheer strength in numbers? Or does Katy have the strength of sass? Make your voice heard and cast your vote in the poll below.
