Did Katy Perry Throw Shade at Taylor Swift During Her Superbowl Halftime Performance?

Katy Perry Superbowl Performance

The wings have been devoured, the beer has been finished, and the Patriots came out victorious on Sunday’s 49th Superbowl (Feb. 1). However, viewers are still buzzing about Katy Perry‘s amazing halftime performance that left the crowd hungry for more. The singer performed, “Roar,” “Dark Horse,”I Kissed A Girl,” “Teenage Dream,” “California Gurls,” and “Firework.”

But one major question still sits in the back of everyone minds: “Did Perry send a subtle insult Taylor Swift‘s way during her performance?”

Well let’s take a look.

The first questionable detail of Perry’s performance are her dancer’s polka dotted bathing suits that strike a rather strong resemblance to Taylor Swift’s 2012 summer in Cape Cod with Conor Kenedy.

Looks a little too familiar, doesn’t it? And we are only getting started…

AND, Remember those shark costumes that made the stage during the performance? Among them was the dancer Scott Myrick, that according to MTV, may be the origin of Katy and Taylor’s bad blood.

Apparently both hip-hop singers wanted Scott to dance for them on their tours. If you recall, Taylor Swift revealed that her single “Bad Blood” was a direct reference to a female in the entertainment industry. In an interview she said she, “tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me. And I’m surprisingly non-confrontational — you would not believe how much I hate conflict. So now I have to avoid her. It’s awkward, and I don’t like it.”.

So when Myrick left Swift’s Red Tour early to dance for Perry’s,  I’m guessing it caused some tension. At least now we have an explanation for the sharks.

Sounds like Taylor felt the heat because when asked about the “Roar” singer’s halftime performance she responded, “that Missy Elliot had a great Super Bowl performance.”

So do you think Katy Perry dissed Taylor, or that everyone is looking to stir up some trouble? Drop a comment below and let us know.
