Katy Perry and Taylor's feud continues

The announcer even says they don't stand a chance at the beginning, announcing, "We are mere moments away from an affair that everybody is predicting to be the most unwatchable, eye-gouging blowout of the season".

The song comes just over a week after the singer scored a court victory against a radio DJ whom she accused of groping her bare bottom while posing for a photo with her in 2013. "She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me". The "Shake It Off" hitmaker unveiled her new single "Look What You Made Me Do" last Thursday (24.08.17), the first track off her hotly-anticipated album "Reputation", but she won't be singing about their spat on it, TMZ reports. It's a shame, too, because when Katy Perry stops trying to be your hilarious best friend, she's capable of great pop music.

About two minutes and ten seconds into the video, Katy Perry is seen falling while shooting a basketball, which instantly sees the clip diverge into meme territory, taking a short break to play "Shooting Stars" while Perry pays homage to the meme.

The Bengal tiger , also known as Panthera tigris tigris, is native to India, Bangladesh, Nepal and Bhutan, according to the U.S. The driver, a U.S. citizen, was arrested and later transported to Metropolitan Correctional Center to await arraignment.

Perry has suggested that "Swish Swish" is her way of clapping back at Swift, but as clapbacks go, it's just a little bit ... weak.

And using a true Regina George battle tactic, "Look What You Made Me Do" also samples Peaches' "Operate", the same song used throughout the Halloween-party scene in Mean Girls. Most recently, Taylor Swift fans were delighted to find that her music was back on Spotify.

Katy Perry's release of "Swish Swish" manages to be an incredible production with a star-studded cast, and yet it doesn't fully deliver. I'd love to take it off the BBQ... Anyway, don't miss this weekend's MTV Video Music Awards, where Katy Perry will bring her subtle comic charm to the role of host.
