And while Katy has spent her publicity tour trying to patch things up (opens in new tab), there's no denying that her teaser for the "Swish Swish" video is full of Taylor shade.

The video itself seems to be structured just like "Bad Blood"—with several celebrity cameos and nicknames. But even more obvious? The fact that "Swish Swish" focuses on a basketball rivalry between the Tigers and the Sheep. Lest you forget, Katy has the "eye of the tiger" and Taylor is—according to her nemesis (opens in new tab)—a Regina George in sheep's clothing.
