Taylor Swift's Song 'Bad Blood' Is About a Famous Frenemy -- Can You Guess Who?

Taylor SwiftTaylor Swift got rich and famous writing about men she didn't like (namely her exes), but now she's gone in a completely different direction -- writing about a woman she doesn't like! Okay, so it's not a different direction, just a different gender. But at least Tays is branching out, kinda. The song, "Bad Blood," on her latest album, 1989, is about Miley Cyrus. Or Selena Gomez. Or Katy Perry. Depending on whom you ask. What is clear is whoever this girl is, she and Taylor have a lot of, well, you know. (Hint: The name of the song.)

Taylor, who has been very candid in admitting that most of her hit songs have been about the various famous guys she's dated, says of the song:

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

So what, in Taylor's world, is as bad as trying to steal one of her men? Why, stealing her roadies! She told Rolling Stone:

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.

Well, this would narrow down the field to whichever rival was touring last year, which Miley was. As for Selena, I doubt it's her, since Taylor wouldn't have been questioning whether the two, who regularly appear at awards shows together, were friends to begin with. Katy Perry may not like Tays for her song about John Mayer, but it's hard to imagine she'd try to take her same musicians, whereas Miley has a bit more of a country bent.

Erm, I'm gonna go with Miley. Anyone else?
