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

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

An American Idol contestant came clean about his love of Taylor Swift to judge Katy Perry on Sunday night's (March 18) episode, and Perry - who's been notoriously locked in a cold war with Swift for years - responded in a possibly shady capacity.

Katy Perry's been called out for the surprise kiss of Glaze in the wake of the #MeToo movement. "'I love [Swift] as a songwriter as well".

Katy then made a face and shrugged.

Perry has publicly acknowledge their feud before, claiming their friendship ended due to a dispute over tour dancers.

The Grammy Award winning singer certainly stood out with her fashion accessory - as she has been accused of "throwing shade" at her sworn enemy Taylor Swift.

So there you have it. Stay tuned for the next terribly uncomfortable moment on American Idol.

The feud between the pop superstars goes back at least four years. When you get to sing a lovely Katy song in front of Katy... One thing is definitely clear though, they will never stop trashing each other.

Pro-Turkish forces pillage Afrin after taking Syrian city

Oil prices stable after two-day decline, but rising United States output drags

Amy Yu and Kevin Esterly timeline: Secrets, suspicions, then a flight
They had them over for dinner at least once and Yu's brother said it seemed the man wanted to help his sister. But during that time, investigators believe, Amy and Esterly were making plans to leave Allentown together.

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". It had to do with business. "Especially when someone tries to assassinate my character with little girls [her fans]", she explained, according to Refinery 29.

Zahm says the weight gain hurt her confidence and she stopped singing in front of people. And I'm surprisingly non-confrontational - you would not believe how much I hate conflict.

But Perry wasn't shaken up by the man's admission.

Katy's name was immediately linked to the comments but Katy finally addressed the feud during her Carpool Karaoke with James Corden in May 2017.

Richie wasn't the only judge impressed by the singer's vocal talent.

"She started it, and it's time for her to finish it", Perry told Corden. Swift even wrote "Bad Blood", a song from her 1989 album, about her frenemy.

American Idol airs on Sundays and Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
