UPDATE - KATY PERRY DOESN'T PLAN TO MUSICALLY SHADE TAYLOR SWIFT: Attention World ... KATY PERRY is not planning a TAYLOR SWIFT diss track titled "1984".
Word on the street yesterday was that Katy registered the song title "1984" with her publishing company, BMI, and that the title's similarity to Taylor's "1989" album proves that it's a diss track aimed at T-Swift.
But a rep for Perry tells Billboard magazine the story is "completely false." Although the song is still on BMI's site with Katy Perry listed under the "Artists" tag, her rep insists she's "not involved in writing, singing, recording or registering this song."
Why would Katy even write a Taylor diss track?
Well, as you'll recall, Katy was reportedly the inspiration for Tay's latest hit, "Bad Blood," which Taylor told Rolling Stone last year was about another female artist who attempted to ruin her tour by hiring away some of her dancers.
Swift never said who that female artist was, but after Perry's Super Bowl appearance this past January, word got out that 3 of her dancers had bailed on Taylor’s Red Tour when Katy asked them to join her Prismatic World Tour.
UPDATE - LIONEL RICHIE DISMISSES NICOLE RICHIE DIVORCE RUMORS: LIONEL RICHIE says there's no truth to the rumor that his daughter NICOLE is splitting with her husband JOEL MADDEN. Breakup rumors surrounding the couple went into overdrive recently after movers were spotted at the couple's Beverly Hills home.
Lionel tells Hello magazine yes, moving trucks did show up that day, but not because one of them was moving out -- they both were. "They've bought a new house," he explains, "and the moving van was pulling up at their old house to move to the new one."
Joel and Nicole's 6,300 square-foot mansion is currently on the market for $3.4 million.
