Katy Perry in 2017 is kind of like a automobile crash that we just can’t look away from, and she’s sort of outperform herself with the brand new video for her sung, “Swish Swish.” The video is a disaster, and we’ll talk about it in a minute, but first we have to deal with something more pressing: the psycho Taylor Swift stans. They’re accusing Katy of imitating Taylor’s “Bad Blood” video and here’s the proof: They’re both sort of about sports( kind of? I thoughts “Bad Blood” was about models but whatever ), and they both use the word “catastrophe” in the promo. Yeah okay, there’s no proof.

So did Katy copy Taylor? Like the “Bad Blood” video, there are also a cluster of famous person in “Swish Swish”, but rather than literally all of the Victoria’s Secret Angels( and Lena Dunham ), Katy get Molly Shannon, The Mountain from, Terry Crews from, one of the boys from, and the Asian girlfriend from. Yeah, we’re not that affected. Nicki Minaj too appears, but she’s literally featured in the hymn so that barely counts.

In the video, Katy plays the skipper of the world’s worst basketball squad, and we watch them play against a unit of repudiates from the movies. The whole occasion is ridiculously dumb, which is about what we’ve come to expect from Katy’s large-scale assignments. At least she’s consistent!

When the psalm originally came out, most people premised it was about the squabble with Taylor, but the video is suspiciously paucity any significant notes to the shady past between the two of them. Pondering Katy Perry is not known for her intricacy( have you the “Please Eat Me Out” “Bon Appetit” video ?), the facts of the case that any references to Taylor are non-obvious probably means they are not there. Rumor has it that the clash might be over, but we’ll have to wait until Taylor’s brand-new single comes out tonight to get more info. Remember that Katy is also hosting the VMAs this weekend, and there are rumors that they’ll play-act together, which would be a strong action for us to stop watching.

So mostly, save yourself the six minutes of watching this video and like, tradition contouring instead or something. This is basically like a stupid cocktail before Taylor’s big handout tomorrow, so stay ready.
