Taylor Swift and Katy Perry have been busy throwing shade at one another and it apparently all began with their ex-boyfriend John Mayer. Surprise, surprise.
Swift commented that she was enemies with this other singer, but not because of a guy. Despite that, “Page Six” reports that this has Mayer’s name all over it:
Taylor and Mayer had a love affair in 2010 before he dumped her.
She released the song “Dear John” with lyrics, “Don’t you think 19’s too young to be played by/Your dark twisted games.”
In 2012, Perry started dating Mayer, who said he was “really humiliated” by Swift’s song. Music sources told Page Six, “Perry started making digs at Taylor from then on.”
While it was reported that several dancers left Swift’s tour for Perry’s last year, Swift appeared to confirm earlier tensions between them, telling Rolling Stone, “For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not. She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, ‘Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?’ ”
The only difference between the past and now is that Swift is going after the girl in the situation — and not the guy. She’s totally grown, you guys.
