Katy Perry releases star-studded music video
Fans have linked it to Taylor Swift’s new release as the pair’s feud continues.
Katy Perry has released a music video for her hit track Swish Swish starring a host of big names.
Actors Terry Crews and Molly Shannon appear in the video, alongside Stranger Things star Gaten Matarazzo and Game Of Thrones actor Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, who portrays The Mountain in the HBO series.
Its release comes on the same day Taylor Swift – with whom Perry has had a public rivalry – releases a song from her upcoming album, Reputation.
Fans on Twitter were quick to analyse the clash, with not too many regarding it as a coincidence.

Perry appeared to be the big loser with fans, as one labelled her “very sad”.

Also, does Katy Perry & Taylor Swift actually think people care about their feud? Just make music & grow up. 👍🏽— Kristi Kurtz (@kristikurtz10) August 24, 2017
Although @Lorin_watson took a different view, tweeting: “So Taylor Swift releases her first single in 3 years the same day that Katy Perry releases her new video, Tay is mad petty.”
