It seems Katy Perry developed a habit this summer of bashing her fellow female pop artists, but now she’s taking aim at ex-boyfriend Travie McCoy. In a recent Billboard interview, she explains that the song “Circle the Drain” from her new album Teenage Dream is “kind of like my ‘You Oughta Know,’ Alanis Morissette moment.” Here’s the brutal lyrics:
“You could have been the greatest/ But you’d rather get wasted/ You fall asleep during foreplay/ ‘Cause the pills you take are more your forte/ I’m not sticking around to watch you go down/ Wanna be your lover/ Not your f*cking mother.”
Ouch! And if that wasn’t painful enough, Katy digs the knife even deeper: “You think you’re so rock and roll/ But you’re really just a joke/ Had the world in the palm of your hand/ But you f*cking choked.” While Travie may have had this diss track coming, we’re still in mourning that Katy is no longer the cutesy “I Kissed A Girl And I Liked It” singer we once adored. Now she’s a catty “I Diss Them All Because I Feel Like It” singer.
Before trashing Travie, Katy dissed Lady Gaga on Twitter for her alleged blasphemous “Alejandro” music video and soon after dissed Miley Cyrus because she thought the “Can’t Be Tamed” pop star was being a skank. Warning to all celebrities: Katy Perry is ready to pounce.
