Will Katy Perry respond to Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” Diss On Upcoming Record              

Taylor Swift allegedly wrote the song “Bad Blood” about her feud with Katy Perry and now, in a new interview with “Entertainment Weekly,” Katy is hinting that she may have responded with a song on her upcoming album. 

When asked about whether she planned to retaliate on the record, Katy first tried to avoid discussing whether Taylor’s song is even about her. “Well that’s not my question to answer — if it’s about me,” she says. “I think [my new album is] a very empowered record. There is no one thing that’s calling out any one person.”

But then Katy seems to change her tune a bit. “One thing to note is: You can’t mistake kindness for weakness and don’t come for me,” she says. “But, let me say this: Everything has a reaction or a consequence so don’t forget about that, okay, honey." She adds, "We got to keep it real, honey. This record is not about anyone else! This record is about me being seen and heard so that I can see and hear everyone else!”

Meanwhile, so far Katy hasn’t revealed the title of the record, or when it is going to come out. “It’s really quite brave,” Perry says of the album. “Sonically, it’s fun and dance-y and dark and light. It’s all of these things. It definitely is a change.”

Ed Sheeran Credits Eminem With Curing His Stutter              

You probably wouldn’t know it by the way he sings now, but Ed Sheeran had a stutter when he was a child, and he says he was able to overcome it thanks to Eminem. During an interview on the U.K. radio show Desert Island Discs, Ed said rapping along to Em’s “The Marshall Mathers LP” cured him.

“My parents didn't know the content of the album, and I must have been nine when it came out," he said. "And when you're nine and someone is saying rude stuff, you wanna learn it. So I learned all of the album back-to-back and he raps at such a fast pace that my stammer would go when I rapped." 

Considering how important that album was, it’s not surprising that when the interviewer asked him to choose which songs he’d take with him on a deserted island, Em’s “Stan” made the list. Other songs included Elton John's “Indian Sunset,” Damien Rice's “Volcano” and Stevie Wonder's “They Won't Go When I Go.
