On Friday, Katy Perry addressed the question if her latest single “Swish Swish” was indeed about Taylor Swift on the Tonight Show.
Jimmy Fallon asked if “Swish Swish” is about “about anyone we know,” and Katy didn’t really say anything to deny the Swift speculation.

Perry described the song as “A great anthem for people whenever someone’s trying to hold you down or bully you,”.
“That’s kinda what this record is about. It’s just like 360-degree liberation. ‘Chained to the Rhythm‘ was this political liberation. ‘Bon Appetit‘ was this sexual liberation. And now this, ‘Swish Swish,’ represents the liberation from all the negative that doesn’t serve you.”
All 3 songs can be found on Katy Perry’s 5th studio album “Witness” which will officially be released on June 9th!
Katy also explained the meaning behind the “odd” album cover for “Witness” that features the singer covering her eyes and opening her mouth to reveal a “third eye.”
“The music has allowed me to travel which has reeducated my mind and changed my perspective on so much,” Perry said. “So my education and my consciousness comes from my voice, and that’s how I see, and that’s how I witness you and that’s how you witness me and that’s why the eye is in the mouth.”
Katy Perry can also be found as the musical guest on the Season Finale of Saturday Night Live…
