Katy Perry Seemingly Joins Taylor Swift-Nicki Minaj Argument
In today's episode of 'Pop Star Twitter Wars' ...
And lo, Katy Perry descended upon the Taylor Swift-Nicki Minaj Twitter exchange with a scalding-hot message of her own.

The "pit women against each other" phrase Swift directs toward Minaj is paraphrased by Perry in her own seemingly shade-strewn tweet. In two words? Oh. Snap.
Oh, and Perry also wanted to shout out Rihanna:
Swift has not further commented on Tuesday's incident, while Minaj has spent much of Wednesday promoting articles defending her views on Twitter. Both superstars have declined Billboard's request for comment.
