Katy Perry sat down with Entertainment Weekly to discuss her upcoming album. After dishing on her break from the spotlight and some of what to expect from KP4, Katy was asked head-on about her feud with Taylor Swift. The interviewer wanted to know if Taylor’s song “Bad Blood” was about Katy trying to sabotage Taylor’s tour.
“Well that’s not my question to answer,” Katy said. She seemed eager to hint that she wouldn’t be taking any retaliation against Taylor, calling her new work “a very empowered record.”
“There is no one thing that’s calling out any one person,” Katy said of the new album. But before anyone gets worried that there won’t be drama, Katy also had some things to say about weakness, strength, actions and reactions. “One thing to note is: You can’t mistake kindness for weakness and don’t come for me. Anyone. Anyone. Anyone. Anyone,” Katy said. “And that’s not to any one person and don’t quote me that it is, because it’s not. It’s not about that,” she said .
“Honestly, when women come together and they decide to unite, this world is going to be a better place,” she continued, sounding a note of empowerment. “Period end of story.” But what Katy said next might make some wonder whether or not that womanly togetherness is coming soon.
