Katy Perry brands Taylor Swift a hypocrite?

Los Angeles, July 24 (IANS) Singer Katy Perry believes Taylor Swift “unmeasurably capitalises on the take down of a woman.”

The “Dark Horse” hitmaker waded into a war of words between her long-time rival and rapper Nicki Minaj over the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) nominations and in a thinly-veiled attack suggested Swift, 25, is a hypocrite, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

The 30-year-old shared her thoughts on the dispute on micro-blogging site Twitter on Wednesday, writing: “Finding it ironic to parade the pit women against other women argument about as one unmeasurably capitalises on the take down of a woman…”
Shortly afterwards, Minaj, 32, favourited the tweet.

Perry later added: “The real travesty is where is the shine for #BBHMMVideo when VMA eligibility period was 7/7/14-7/1/15 & that gem dropped 7/1… @MTV (sic)”.

The brunette beauty and Swift have been embroiled in a feud, which is believed to have inspired the latter’s latest track “Bad blood,” for some time.

The spat between Swift and Minaj erupted on after the hip hop star bemoaned being nominated for just three VMAs, with her “Anaconda” video being overlooked for the top prize, Video of the Year.

“When the ‘other’ girls drop a video that breaks records and impacts culture they get that nomination,” she tweeted.

“If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year.

“I’m not always confident. Just tired. Black women influence pop culture so much but are rarely rewarded for it (sic),” she further added.
But Swift – who received nine nominations in total – felt the tweets were aimed at her and hit back saying she has loved and supported Minaj.

“I’ve done nothing but love & support you. It’s unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot.”

Minaj then accused Swift of missing the point of her argument, but the duo eventually reconciled their differences.
