2. Taylor Swift And Katy Perry Are Feuding According To Reports
In September 2014, Taylor Swift told Rolling Stone Magazine that her song “Bad Blood” was written about a fellow female musician who was a “straight-up enemy.” Shortly after this came out, Perry tweeted this message: Watch out for the Regina George in sheep’s clothing. Perry was referring to the ultimate bully from the movie Mean Girls. When asked about the alleged feud by Billboard, Perry told them:
If somebody is trying to defame my character, you’re going to hear about it.
Perhaps their feud has something to do with John Mayer, since both girls dated him …
3. Perry Is Said To Be Back Together With Ex John Mayer
Recently, there have been reports that Perry has gotten back together with ex-boyfriend John Mayer. The two have had an on-and-off relationship since 2012, but are reportedly back on and keeping it low-profile. There were even rumors that Perry was pushing for Mayer to make an appearance on stage at the Super Bowl with her, but those rumors have been put to rest. Prior to getting back with Mayer, Perry was linked to DJ Diplo, who also happens to have a feud going on with Taylor Swift.

4. She Was Born To Two Pastors
Katy Perry comes from a very religious household, born to two pastors in California, growing up singing in the church singer. So, you can imagine their reaction when Perry came out with a song called “I Kissed A Girl.” Earlier than that, she came out with a debut single called “UR So Gay”, which she attributes to her being raised in a sheltered environment with young ignorance.
5. The Break Up Of Her Marriage To Russell Brand Was Shown In Her Movie Part Of Me
Katy Perry came out with a movie documentary called Part Of Me and it was filmed just after she married comedian Russell Brand. Cameras followed her on tour and showed her marriage fall apart. Her free time became scarce and she was usually flying to wherever her husband was, without him making the effort to come to her. In addition, she once surprised Brand at one of his comedy shows and he reportedly was making unflattering jokes about Perry, which truly upset her. On camera, Perry was shown overcome with grief and sobbing before going on stage after learning that her marriage was over from Brand. She truly showed strength in pushing through it all. So, why did Perry show this all on screen? Perry once said:
There are a lot of things that are personally uncomfortable to show, especially me without makeup and completely bloated or crying. But I’ve realized that it’s time for me to show my audience that you don’t have to be perfect to achieve your dreams. Because nobody relates to being perfect.
