In a now-deleted tweet reported by People , Swift shares how much she loves Perry's "Waking Up in Vegas" video — so much that she wants to hang a poster of the "I Kissed a Girl" singer on her wall.
August 2009 : Things continue to be friendly and mutually flattering between the two in the months following, judging from a glowing social media exchange in which Perry made plans to catch up with Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards after the latter tweeted a photo at her.
September 2014 : In a Rolling Stone interview, Swift reveals that her song "Bad Blood," off her upcoming album 1989 , is about a female musical artist who she won't name, who "tried to sabotage" her tour by hiring people on her staff.
A few days after the incident, one of Swift's backup dancers appears to be dressed like, and possibly mocking, the viral "left shark" from Perry's Superbowl performance.
Fans pointed to lyrics and a beat that seemingly reference scenes in the movie Mean Girls as possible shots to Perry, who had previously sent a tweet referencing the character Regina George.
