Swift's focus on sisterhood cuts both ways, because when another woman crosses her, she's equally fierce about hitting back. The angriest song on 1989 is called "Bad Blood," and it's about another female artist Swift declines to name. "For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not," she says. "She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, 'Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?'" Then last year, the other star crossed a line. "She did something so horrible," Swift says. "I was like, 'Oh, we're just straight-up enemies.' And it wasn't even about a guy! It had to do with business. She basically 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."
(Pressed, Swift admits there might have been a personal element to the conflict. "But I don't think there would be any personal problem if she weren't competitive," she says.)
首先要談談兩人間的恩怨，眾所周知的便是寫過<Dear John>的Taylor和年初才和John Mayer分手的Katy表姊妹的關係了。這恐怕是美女泰勒看不爽凱蒂的導火線，也是上段文末所謂的私人恩怨。而歌曲中說的破壞巡演、挖角團隊一事，可詳閱此篇: http://www.examiner.com.au/story/1986892/dancing-to-beat-of-his-own-drum/
簡單的講一下連結內的內容，Lockhart Brownlie就是現在Katy巡演和各節目LIVE時的固定舞者之一，他和另外兩個原本參與California Dreams世界巡演的舞者在巡演告一段落後便去Taylor的Red Tour試鏡並被選為後備舞者。跟了美女六個月，基本上也沒什麼在跳，Katy此時正好聯絡他們三個說新專輯要發行了，希望他們可以加入，他們便答應了。... ...
Watch out for the Regina George in sheep's clothing...
