Taylor Swift released her ENTIRE catalogue on Spotify the same day Katy Perry drops her new album

Shade alert!

Proving that a showbiz feud is nothing if not bitter, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift appear to be – STILL – at loggerheads.

Ms Perry, 32, has today released her much-anticipated new album, Witness.

It includes hits such as Chained To The Rhythm and Bon Appétit and has fan all-sorts of excited as it’s the star’s first album since Prism FOUR years ago.

So far, so standard, you say.

However, in an intriguing twist a certain Taylor Swift – she of the long-running feud with Katy – has made a pretty spectacular announcement of her own.

Yes, after years of refusing to put her music on Spotify, Tay-Tay last night released ALL of her albums onto the world’s leading music-streaming platform.

Coincidence? Probably not (though we’ll let you be the judge).

There was no promotion of this milestone move by Ms Swift, nor does Thursday, June 8 seem to have any real significance for her.

Still, predictably Twitter has been having a field-day in the aftermath.

Promoting Witness, Katy has been chatting about her dispute with Taylor (we won’t go back into the nitty-gritty – something about one of them/both of them ‘stealing’ dancers for a world tour).

Referring to ‘the incident,’ Ms Perry told James Corden last month: “That’s true, there is a situation. Honestly, it’s really like she started it and it’s time for her to finish it.

“I’m not Buddha – things irritate me,” she continued.

“I wish that I could turn the other cheek every single time, but I’m also not a pushover, you know? Especially when someone tries to assassinate my character with little girls. That’s so messed up!”
