1. In case you missed it, Katy Perry gave two separate interviews on the Grammys red carpet where she made two rude-ass comments about shaving her head in reference to Britney Spears. You can read more about that here.
2. Then, last night, Britney cryptically tweeted this Bible verse, which many are speculating is in response to Katy’s vitriol.
5. The first thing you should know about Britney’s tweet is that she changed the pronouns from the original Bible verse from “he” to “she.”
6. The original verse (which Britney kinda sorta butchered) goes like this:
“A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.”
10. It seems strange that Britney would just randomly tweet a Bible passage that says, essentially, “If you say nasty shit it is because you are a nasty person. Good people just stay focused on good things.”
12. Rachel C. Weingarten is the author of Ancient Prayer: Channeling Your Faith 365 Days of the Year, and she gave BuzzFeed her interpretation of the Bible verse. Rachel said, “I kind of love this dig and actually see it as a double-edged sword — it says one of two things.”
14. Secondly, “Britney’s further taking that high road to another level by damning Katy with her own words. The verse is basically saying that good or bad, a person speaks what’s in their heart. So say you have an evil twisted soul, you might be spewing vitriol. Boom. Britney is saying it without saying it about Katy.”
17. Peace be with you.
