If you needed more confirmation that Taylor Swift's "squad" is problematic AF, look no further because Ruby Rose just provided yet another example to back that claim. Katy Perry released her new song with Nicki Minaj called "Swish Swish," which to some is a clear response to the country singer's "Bad Blood"— a song inspired by the end of Katy and Taylor' friendship. You can find more about Katy's new song here.
While Katy denied that a retaliation would be in her upcoming album Witness, instead of taking the high road, the "Bon Appétit" singer teamed up with the rapper who has also had her share of issues with Taylor making it clear that she is not here to play. Ruby took this opportunity to bash the singer, as well as her recent music releases, and masked it as caring about what is happening in the world and the people she loves. Even saying that the "Roar" singer's career has been flopping. Yikes, this is petty!
"'Purposeful poop' to "bomb a petit" to a sloppy mess of writing over the top of Funkagenda..stop trying to make 'Wit..I mean "fetch" happen," she wrote.
She continued: "I just think with everything going on in the world to go from rebranding as political activist only to ditch it and go low.. is.. a bummer."
"I've always stood up for the people I love and against things I think are cheap or mean spirited. That's not new. You have to follow your ❤️"
While preaching about people being "mean spirited" Ruby continued to take digs at Katy and her fans, and highlighting her music sales as if that is in any way a kind thing to do.
Selena Gomez has fallen victim to defending her friend Taylor in the past, and that did not go well for her. Other members of the squad continuously throw digs at Katy or anyone who crosses their bestie. While some may see this as "loyal," to others it comes off as desperate and as an attempt to please the leader of their pack.
Most of them, including Ruby and Selena, have had ties with Katy in the past which they quickly cut off for an opportunity to be invited to the 1989 singer's annual Fourth of July party. Based on the photos it looks like an absolutely great time, but is it worth losing your integrity over? We're not too sure.
It is sad to see so many women attacking each other this way and we hope that at some point they can make their peace and move on because as a whole, we all need to.
