Katy Perry’s speaking out about speaking out. While doing the customary TV, magazine, and radio interviews to promote her new album, Witness, Katy Perry has been candid in describing her feud with fellow popstar Taylor Swift. From an interview with Sirius XM to a visit to Carpool Karaoke with James Corden, she has not held back about the incident, which apparently began when her backup dancers were fired from Taylor's tour for wanting to join Katy's.
"I tried to do the right thing, the good thing,"she said on SiriusXM. "And, you know, she shut me down and wrote a song."
In another interview with NME, Perry explained exactly why she has been so open. “Well, James Corden makes me and the whole world feel very safe,” Perry told the British magazine. “No one has asked me about my side of the story, and there are three sides of every story: one, two, and the truth.”
“I mean, I’m not Buddha—things irritate me,” she continued. “I wish that I could turn the other cheek every single time, but I’m also not a pushover, you know? Especially when someone tries to assassinate my character with little girls [her fans]. That’s so messed up!”
Hey, we’re all for hearing both sides of a story. On Carpool Karaoke, Katy said that she would "take the beef off the grill" (James' words) if Taylor were to apologize. Developments!
