Is 'Swish Swish' Really About Taylor Swift? Katy Perry Explains the Meaning!

Everyone is still talking about Katy Perry‘s new song “Swish Swish” and trying to figure out if the lyrics are really about Taylor Swift. Luckily for us, Katy is already opening up about the meaning of the song!

The 32-year-old singer was interview by Jimmy Fallon on Friday night (May 19), ahead of her appearance on Saturday Night Live this weekend, and she was asked to explain what the song is about and if it’s targeted at anyone in particular.

“I think it’s a great anthem for people to use whenever someone’s trying to hold you down or bully you,” Katy said. “That’s kind of what this record is about, it’s just like [a] 360-degree liberation.”

Katy also said that “Swish represents the liberation from all the negative that doesn’t serve you.”

It’s no secret that Katy Perry has been in a feud with Taylor Swift for several years and it’s also no secret that Tay‘s friends always have her back.

Katy just dropped a new song called “Swish Swish” featuring Nicki Minaj and many people think that the song is a diss track aimed at Taylor.

Well, Taylor‘s friend Ruby Rose is not having any of it and took to Twitter to slam Katy‘s music.

“‘Purposeful poop’ to ‘bomb a petit’ to a sloppy mess of writing over the top of Funkagenda..stop trying to make ‘Wit..I mean ‘fetch’ happen,” the 31-year-old Orange Is the New Black actress tweeted on Thursday night (May 18).

Katy described her new music as “purposeful pop” while promoting her first Witness single “Chained to the Rhythm.” The second single she dropped from the album was “Bon Appetit.”

“I just think with everything going on in the world to go from rebranding as political activist only to ditch it and go low.. is.. a bummer,” Ruby added, likely referring to Katy‘s work on Hillary Clinton‘s presidential campaign last year.

When a fan told Ruby to keep Nicki out of this, the actress said, “Not gonna lie Nicki is great on it and basically the only part that doesn’t sound a mess.”

Did you know that Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry go WAY back?! They walked the red carpet together at the VMAs in 2008 and there is a whole story around their appearance.

“She’s been a friend of mine for a really long time,” Miley said during an interview with WKTU on Tuesday (May 16). “We were actually just realizing the other day that next year, we’ll have been friends for 10 years. I think that’s my friend that I’ve known the longest. Which is really, really weird!”

Miley met Katy for the first time back in 2008.

“When she came out with ‘I Kissed a Girl,’ I was doing the Hannah Montana movie, and I heard her on the radio. They said, ‘Who did you write that about?’ She said me!” Miley said. “I screamed and started freaking out, and then she asked me to go to the VMAs with her. That’s when I started doing my whole VMA controversy. I was like, ‘I’ll go with Katy Perry!’”

Miley says her mom Tish wouldn’t let her go alone so she came along too. “So, that’s how we met and we just stayed friends,” she said.
