People Are Saying Katy Perry Totally Copied Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" Video

I guess there's still some bad blood?

So, Katy Perry just revealed on Twitter that she's releasing the music video for her song "Swish Swish" this week and shared a little teaser...

๐Ÿ€๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€โ—COUNTDOWN TO CATASTROPHE โ—๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๐Ÿ€#swishswish #thisweek ๐Ÿ”ฅ@nickiminaj ๐Ÿ”ฅ

And, well, I'm just going to cut to the chase โ€” it seems pretty fucking similar to Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" video. I's Katy's:

And here's that promo from Taylor's back in 2015:


Like, Katy even used the word CATASTROPHE, which was Taylor's "Bad Blood" character.

Anyways, people started dragging Katy because of the similarities:

@katyperry @NICKIMINAJ I'm screaming this is literally the cheaper version of bad blood lfjdsf;kjsak;lsdaj

lol katy perry's new music video for 'swish swish' is such a dig at bad blood. SO BORING.

@katyperry @NICKIMINAJ Sis, you still trying to compete with Taylor Swift with this knockoff video of Bad Blood?

And questioning Katy's "inspiration" for her new video...

So not only is Katy Perry like 3 years late responding to Taylor Swift, but she's using her "Bad Blood" music video idea. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Katy Perry is so out of ideas that she has to rely on making fun of Taylor and trying to do her own Bad Blood esqueโ€ฆ

But some people still think it's all just an elaborate ruse and Katy and Taylor are planning something together:
