Taylor Swift Bad BloodThere’s only mad love for Taylor Swift on this show. On Episode 171 of Taylor Talk: The Taylor Swift, we discuss “Bad Blood.” This song is allegedly about pop star Katy Perry, Taylor’s former good friend. Rumor has it that Katy Perry tried to “sabotage an entire arena tour” (RED Tour) by hiring some dancers right from under her. The hosts agree that “Bad Blood” was Taylor’s way to confronting the situation, even though Taylor said herself that she hates confrontation. What do you all think of the song? Could it be about Katy Perry? Leave us your thoughts. Thanks for listening!

Taylor Swift and Katy Perry “Hot ‘n’ Cold”

  • D

    I completely agree with the Bad Blood friendship description! I’ve recently gone through a situation like this and let me tell you, it HURTS. A girl and I were very close friends for upwards of 5 years and she changed… I feel like it’s the memories I miss more than her, but it really, really hurts to look back on it. And I feel that after it all, it is extremely hard to trust people in the same way.

      Thanks so much for listening!! Trust me, I’ve gone through it too. You’re not alone, and it totally sucks, but without life’s downfalls, we can’t celebrate our successes and triumphs! :-)

    Great discussion, what I learned. Adam is a bully.
