Katy Perry’s Dancing Shark Reportedly Tied to Taylor Swift Feud
One of the most talked about moments from last night's Super Bowl -- other than the reemergence of Missy Elliot, the Patriots' sudden and unexpected win and Katy Perry's CGI everything -- were the dancing sharks. If you have no idea what we're talking about, check out the video posted above. Although everyone's been focusing more on the ineptitude of the dancing shark on the left, allow us to draw your attention to the shark on the right.
The man behind the mask is apparently Scott Myrick, who posted on Twitter about the momentous occasion. He wrote, "And that everyone, is what it feels like to have your heart explode. I've never been more proud to be a part of something in my life."
He went on to say, "Tonight was a feeling and moment in time that I will never, ever forget. Thank you for all the support everyone. Thanks be to Jesus, aka @katyperry for this shark takeover. You called it gurllllll.” Aww! Totally adorable.
Not so adorable? It also looks like Scott may be part of the reason Taylor and Katy are embroiled in that supposed feud -- you know, the one that reportedly inspired Taylor to write 'Bad Blood'? Apparently, Scott was a dancer for Katy's California Dreams Tour back in 2011. Once the tour was finished, he secured a spot as a dancer for Taylor's Red Tour. Sounds pretty normal so far.
According to an interview with the Examiner, another back up dancer named Lockhart Brownlie said Katy's team reached out to the dancers who were then part of Taylor's tour to see if they would return to Katy and dance on her Prismatic World Tour. Scott, Lockhart and another dancer left Taylor to join Katy, which is what reportedly caused the whole feud in the first place.
In her interview with Rolling Stone, Taylor said, "She did something so horrible. I was like, ‘Oh, we’re just straight-up enemies.’ And it wasn’t even about a guy! It had to do with business. She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me."
For the record, there's still no confirmation as to who 'Bad Blood' is officially about, just speculation.
