Katy Perry Gave Taylor Swift A Pretty Backhanded Compliment On 'American Idol'

Katy Perry keeps making headlines while being a judge on American Idol.

Katy Perry took yet another swipe at Taylor Swift on ABC's "American Idol" Sunday night, reigniting a feud that had been dormant since August. "Taylor Swift. I love Taylor Swift". You can see the relevant clip below from the show, in which a contestant apologizes to Perry by listing Swift as an artist he admired.

Contestant Amelia Hammer Harris has the music industry in her bones. The American Idol hopeful is the daughter of songwriter Jack Hammer, who's credited as a co-writer for "Great Balls of Fire". Katy appeared to act like it was not a big deal, replying, "Oh, you don't have to be sorry". But by specifying she loves Tay "as a songwriter", she's also implying she really doesn't like her as a person.

Wearing Daisy Duke cut-offs and holding a Starbucks drink, she sings a medley of Mariah Carey's "Emotions" (yes, she hits the high notes ) and Demo Lovato's "Stone Cold".




Many Katy Perry fans think her Witness single "Swish Swish" is a response to Taylor Swift's song "Bad Blood".

I tried to talk to her about it, and she wouldn't speak to me. [I got] a full shutdown, and then she writes a song about me ['Bad Blood']... that's how you want to deal with it?

"I think personally that women together - not divided and none of this petty bulls*** - women together will heal the world". "We've had our differences but I just continue to say, 'God bless her on her journey". Either squash the beef and move on or keeping hating, but going back and forth isn't a good look.
