Or is it? Over the last few years, Taylor Swift and Katy Perry have been involved in an ever-lasting feud. Neither of them, publicly mentioning names. Just jabs here and there. At least, that's what we thought.
In 2014, Taylor gave an interview with Rolling Stone about her album 1989.

She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me.
Obviously, everyone thinks (or knows) that it's about Katy Perry, no?
But then, Taylor was in a recent interview with GQ, and suggested that the song wasn't about Katy. Or did she??
