So is it or isn't it? Is Taylor Swift's infamous hit song "Bad Blood" REALLY about Katy Perry like everyone thinks it is?

Not only did Tay show off her hot bod on the cover of GQ, but she also dished on the tune. She shared some deets on who it's about.

"You're in a[n] interview, and the writer says, 'Who is that song about? That sounds like a really intense moment from your life.' And you sit there, and you know you're on good terms with your ex-boyfriend, and you don't want him—or his family—to think you're firing shots at him. So you say, 'That was about losing a friend.' And that's basically all you say. But then people cryptically tweet about what you meant. I never said anything that would point a finger in the specific direction of one specific person, and I can sleep at night knowing that. I knew the song would be assigned to a person, and the easiest mark was someone who I didn't want to be labeled with this song. It was not a song about heartbreak. It was about the loss of friendship."

The word on the street is that the track is about Katy because she stole Taylor's backup dancers. She also dated Tay's infamous ex-boyfriend John Mayer.

During the same sit-down, she was asked if she's worried her lyrics will be perceived differently than intended.

"No. Some of the things I write about on a song like 'Blank Space' are satire. You take your creative license and create things that are larger than life. You can write things like I get drunk on jealousy but you'll come back each time you leave, 'cause darling I'm a nightmare dressed like a daydream. That is not my approach to relationships. But is it cool to write the narrative of a girl who's crazy but seductive but glamorous but nuts but manipulative? That was the character I felt the media had written for me, and for a long time I felt hurt by it. I took it personally. But as time went by, I realized it was kind of hilarious."
