Is Katy Perry's New Album a Response to Taylor Swift’s ‘Bad Blood’?

By Maolen E. / 2017.05.13

Katy Perry is finally gearing up to unwrap her fifth studio album before the year ends. While there is still a long way to go before it hit music shelves, fans are already dissecting to find out whether or not it will have a response to Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood.”

When Swift dropped “Bad Blood” off her fifth studio album “1989” last May 2015, speculations arise that Perry is the subject of the song – which was all about an female artist who attempted to sabotage one of her concert tours.

Since Perry is looking to bounce back into the music scene with her plan to release a new album this year, many believe her new songs has been written in response to Swift’s “Bad Blood.” Now, the “Roar” singer has finally shed some light about the matter.

“Well, that’s not my question to answer — if it’s about me,” Perry told Entertainment Weekly. “I think [my new album is] a very empowered record. There is no one thing that’s calling out any one person.”

Perry’s new album will be vastly different from what fans have come to expect from her. The fifth studio album is said to be all about “healing,” as it reflects who the singer is now that she is in her thirties.

"The energy is just totally different -- it’s not thirsty or desperate or clingy,” Perry continued. “It’s a really beautiful kind of Zen-like feeling place... It’s really quite brave. Sonically, it’s fun and dance-y and dark and light. It’s all of these things. It definitely is a change.”

Besides the already released singles “Chained to the Rhythm” and “Bon Appetit,” the fifth studio album will also include a track called “Bigger Than Me” and a dance song dubbed “Swish Swish.”
