Katy Perry's 'Swish Swish' May Be Taylor Swift Diss Track

(Radio.com) Social media is ablaze with fan theories about how Katy Perry's new track "Swish Swish," is a direct diss track for Taylor Swift. "Swish Swish" features a collaboration with Nicki Minaj, who also has had her own public disagreement with Swift in 2015.

"So keep calm, honey, I'ma stick around/ For more than a minute, get used to it/ Funny my name keeps comin' outcho mouth/ Cause I stay winning," Perry says in the single, off her upcoming album, Witness.

"Your game is tired/ You should retire/ You're 'bout cute as/ An old coupon expired/ And karma's not a liar/ She keeps receipts," Perry sings, perhaps alluding to Swift.

Minaj comes in rapping, "Don't be tryna double back/ I already despise you/ All that fake love you showin'/Couldn't even disguise you … I only f— with Queens, so I'm makin' hits with Katy."

A flurry of late-night tweets from Swift squad member Ruby Rose made it clear she thinks the song is aimed at Swift. Listen to "Swish Swish" below and check out Rose's here.

She whispered, "'Mom, we saw this magazine and this is what it said.'" Curtis smiled, asking, "Did they take it as a fact, like, 'America was found in 1776, you're the most beautiful woman in the world - why didn't you tell us?'" Julia joked, "If they didn't take it as a fact, it's a fact now…it's part of the legend."
