Despite rising above it all and admitting that there is *one* thing that would make her collaborate with Taylor Swift, it鈥檚 hard to deny that Katy Perry is currently shading Tay HARD in their ongoing feud. Not only did Katy apparently beat out Taylor for the coveted Olympic song honor as well as give her perfume a name that sounds like a total dig at the 鈥淏ad Blood鈥 singer, but that might just be the tip of the iceberg. When reports came out that Katy had written a bunch of new songs that all throw shade at Taylor, it was enough of a burn. But now it looks like Katy is actually working with Taylor鈥檚 own producers on her new music. Ouch!

Though it鈥檚 not common knowledge outside of the biz, Max Martin and Shellbeck have worked with Taylor Swift on 鈥淲e Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,鈥 a beloved breakup tune for many Swift fans. And though it might seem like a total breach of loyalty on the part of the producers to now be working with Perry, this isn鈥檛 actually the first time Max has teamed up with Katy.

In fact, they鈥檝e worked together since Perry鈥檚 debut LP, One of the Boys. Could this mean that we have things mixed up? Perhaps Taylor working with Max was a burn thrown Katy鈥檚 way. Hmm.

Granted, this might all just be a coincidence and there may be no shade behind Katy鈥檚 latest move, but with her ongoing feud with Taylor, it鈥檚 hard to imagine that it wasn鈥檛 part of the motivation (or at least a fringe benefit).

Do you think Katy鈥檚 move is yet another burn for Taylor? Tweet us @BritandCo!
