Rumors of blood feud between pop heavy-hitters Taylor Swift and Katy Perry have been running rampart since Taylor Swift teased the release of her single "Bad Blood."  In the pages of GQ, Swift skirted around commenting about the alleged drama between the two, though she did comment on the true meaning of the single.

"It was not a song about heartbreak.  It was about the loss of friendship.  Listen to the song. It doesn't point to any one person or any one situation," she commented on the track, effectively leaving fans guessing about some of the finer details.

Swift claims that she thought the clarification was necessary due to her monopoly on the "Break Up Anthem" genre.  She went on to clarify that "it was important to show that losing friendships can be just as damaging to a person as losing a romantic relationship."  We have to agree with this statement.

Although Swift got real about the theme of the song, she has remained mum about exactly who it is about (coughKatyPerrycough).  "I never said anything that would point a finger in the specific direction of one specific person, and I can sleep at night knowing that" Swift coyly told GQ.  Even still, the 1989 siren knew that the general public would pin the song on someone, so we'd say her shade is pretty thinly veiled.

Okay Taylor Swift, we'll take your word for it even though we're still DYING to know if "Bad Blood" is really about your infamous feud with Katy Perry!  Fans are so desperate to get the dirty details about the song's intended target that they have turned to Swift's official best friend Selena Gomez for answers.  During a visit to Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live this Sunday, Gomez made a telling non-comment about the feud while playing a truth-telling game called Plead the Fifth with Cohen.

Cohen started out the game by asking the Revival siren about "Bad Blood," but Gomez immediately opted out of answering the question.  Since she pleaded the fifth in regards to the Swift/Perry drama, Gomez was left clearing the air on rumors of another feud, this one between herself and fellow former Disney ingenue Demi Lovato.  Gomez was quick to nix any rumors about bad blood there, and she also found herself rating how gay she though Nick Jonas was on a scale from zero to ten.  We find it kind of interesting that she would rather answer these questions than comment on Taylor Swift and Katy Perry, but we'll let you decide what exactly that means!

Who do YOU think Taylor Swift sang "Bad Blood" about?  Do you think she was taking a jab at Katy Perry, some other friend, or is this maybe just a hypothetical song?  Let us know your thoughts below!
