Taylor Swift Fired The Dancers That Katy Perry Allegedly Stole: More Details On Their Feud
Taylor Swift got the internet buzzing earlier this week when she told Rolling Stone about a diss track on her new LP called “Bad Blood”, which was written about one of her female rivals. “She did something so horrible… it had to do with business,” the “Shake It Off” diva revealed. “She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me.”
It didn’t take a lot of detective work to discover that she was talking about Katy Perry. She hired three of Taylor’s dancers for her live show before the (former) country queen’s Fearless tour was finished. Only, here’s the rub. They had previously worked on the “This Is How We Do” hitmaker’s Teenage Dream tour and, according to TMZ, apparently gave plenty of notice that they wanted to work with her again.
“We’re told the dancers told Taylor up front … they did not want to sign for the full tour — they wanted a 30-day out, and we’re told it’s because they were just waiting for Katy to go back on tour,” the website reports. “When Katy hit the stage again, they gave their 30-day notice, but Taylor got so pissed off she fired them on the spot.” If everybody was upfront about their intentions, why is Taylor mad? She’s popular enough to sell a ton of albums without creating fictional drama.
