BAD BLOOD: Katy Perry Disses Taylor Swift in Nicki Minaj Assisted Single ‘Swish Swish’
All week, singer and songwriter Katy Perry has been promoting her long-awaited fourth studio album, which was revealed to be entitled Witness.
From confirming herself as a judge on the reboot of American Idol, to unveiling the illuminati inspired cover art for the record, Katy has been nonstop everyday this week and she continued with the release of her Nicki Minaj assisted Swish Swish:
“Swish, swish, bish /Another one in the basket /Can’t touch this /Another one in the casket /Your game is tired /You should retire /You’re ‘bout as cute as /An old coupon expired”
It is hands down the BEST song we’ve heard from Katy from this era, and Nicki Minaj helps her a lot with the Truffle Butter sampled beat:
“Pink Ferragamo sliders on deck /Silly rap beefs just get me more checks /My life is a movie, I’m never off set /Me and my amigos (no, not Offset) /Swish swish, aww I got them upset”
The song is getting a lot of talk on Twitter as many of Katy’s fans feel that she is dissing Taylor Swift, who she has beef with. It’s no secret that Taylor penned her 2015 hit isngle Bad Blood about Katy, and it looks like Katy finally decided to clap back specifically with the chorus line “Another one in the basket.” In the basket’ evokes the well known image of a snake charmers snake rising out of a wicker basket , snake being the most iconic smear/slur used against Taylor as “Taylor Swift Is a Snake” began trending on Twitter after her breakup with Calvin Harris and after it was revealed that she DID KNOW about Kanye West‘s lyric about her in his song Famous.
This may be a good era after all.
