If the Taylor Swift-Nicki Minaj drama wasn't enough for you, Katy Perry has now jumped into the fray. After Swift chastised Minaj about the latter's VMA nominations complaint, saying, "It's unlike you to pit women against each other," Perry—who has a long history of spats with Swift—chimed in yesterday by tweeting to her nearly 73 million followers: "Finding it ironic to parade the pit women against other women argument about as one unmeasurably capitalizes on the take down of a woman."

She doesn't name Swift specifically, but Swift's "Bad Blood" song—whose video was nominated in the VMA "video of the year" category—is rumored to be about Perry and how she reportedly stabbed Swift in the back by hiring Swift's people out from under her, notes Sky News. One notable person who favorited Perry's tweet: Nicki Minaj. (Guess Minaj doesn't owe Taylor anymore?)
