Katy Perry was set to release her new music video for her song, “Swish Swish,” on Friday, but decided to drop it a day early, ET reports.
This move comes after Taylor Swift announced this week that she’ll be releasing a new song on Thursday night.
“Swish Swish” was believed to be a response to Taylor Swift’s 2014 “Bad Blood”, which is presumed to be about the pop star’s feud with Perry.
The music video features a jumbled and rambling but star-studded storyline in which Perry’s basketball team Tigers (comprised of Glee’s Jenna Ushkowitz, Stranger Things‘ Gaten Matarazzo, dancer Russell Horning, model Dexter Mayfield and comedian Christine Sydelko) faces off against the Sheep team (which includes Game of Thrones actor Hafþór Júlíus “Thor” Björnsson). The team coaches are Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s Terry Crews and Saturday Night Live alum Molly Shannon. Cheerleading squad includes Joey Chestnut, football player Rob Gronkowski, and cast members from Netflix’s GLOW – Sydelle Noel, Britney Young, Kia Stevens, Jackie Tohn and Ellen Wong.
Perry is set to host the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday and there are rumors that Swift and Perry might have a special performance together but the awards show’s producer, Garrett English, confirmed that’s not happening.
“That’s not happening as far as [I know],” he told ET. “I’ve certainly seen all the rumors flying around, but that’s not happening.”
