Is Katy Perry The Enemy Taylor Swift Complains About In Rolling Stone?

Is Katy Perry the mystery female artist Taylor Swift shades in a new Rolling Stone interview?

The "Shake It Off" singer griped about another artist in the magazine's Sept. 25 issue, but in typical Swift style, she refused to name names. 

Meanwhile, Perry implied she's the one Swift declined to identify by referencing 2004's "Mean Girls":

"Watch out for the Regina George in sheep's clothing..." the singer tweeted Tuesday.

The 24-year-old "Mean" singer has yet to reply to the 29-year-old "Firework" singer's tweet. The ex-country star may have implied Perry was the inspiration for the song "Bad Blood", which appears on her new album, "1989". 

"For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not. 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," Swift recalled.

"She did something so horrible, I was like, 'Oh, we're just straight-up enemies.' And it wasn't even about a guy!"

Swift continued, "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."

For 15 months, Swift toured the globe to promote "Red." Perry kicked off her Prismatic World Tour in May 2014, with concerts scheduled in Australia, France and the United States, among other countries.

"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 to elaborate, Swift admitted to Rolling Stone 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 said.

Like the ex-boyfriends who've inspired much of her work, Swift knew "Bad Blood" would cause a stir.

"Sometimes the lines in a song are lines you wish you could text-message somebody in real life. I would just be constantly writing all these zingers, like, 'Burn. That would really get her.' And I know people are going to obsess over who it's about, because they think they have all my relationships mapped out. But there's a reason there are not any overt call-outs in that song," she said. 

"My intent was not to create some gossip-fest. I wanted people to apply it to a situation where they felt betrayed in their own lives."
