Katy Perry is not having anyone come for her. "Anyone. Anyone. Anyone. Anyone."
After so much controversy and "pitting women against other women," Entertainment Weekly (per NYLON) quotes Katy Perry answering a very direct "Is there a reaction to "Bad Blood" on your new album" type question.
She responds in a sense of what I read was "There is a reaction, but don't take it as me letting Taylor get to me" type of response.
"Well that’s not my question to answer—if it’s about me. I think [my new album is] a very empowered record. There is no one thing that’s calling out any one person. One thing to note is: You can’t mistake kindness for weakness and don’t come for me. Anyone. Anyone. Anyone. Anyone. And that’s not to any one person and don’t quote me that it is, because it’s not. It’s not about that. Honestly, when women come together and they decide to unite, this world is going to be a better place. Period end of story. But, let me say this: Everything has a reaction or a consequence so don’t forget about that, okay, honey. [Laughs] 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! It’s not even about me! It’s about everything that I see out there that I digest. I think there’s a healing in it for me and vulnerability. If people want to connect and be healed and feel vulnerable and feel empowered and strong, God bless and here it is."
On top of Taylor Swift, Perry blasted Britney Spears while walking a Red Carpet, referring to when Brit shaved her head during a mental breakdown, and just last week, she had people gunning for her for making a comment that alluded to her hair being like former President Barack Obama.
Her most recent release before her album was a song with Migos called “Bon Appetit” which was a little lackluster, in my honest opinion. (Listen below, sort of NSFW)

We'll see what the album has in store. Entertainment Weekly does not note a title.
Amy Cooper is the type of journalist that when asked "What do you bring to the table," she replies "I am the table.
