Andy Cohen is taking no prisoners in his new book Superficial: More Adventures from the Andy Cohen Diaries, as he writes about interactions with everyone from Oprah to John Mayer.

One specific recollection that’s setting the internet alight is Taylor Swift’s serious shade towards Katy Perry at this year’s Met Gala.

The 48-year-old Watch What Happens: Live host was attending this year’s Met Ball with Sarah Jessica Parker when he had a run-in with Taylor, 26, at the bar. According to Andy, Tay was looking for a spot to watch Lady Gaga’s performance when he spied a space next to Katy, 32.

‘Why I felt I needed to get involved I will never know (maybe I was auditioning for her squad?) but I innocently said exactly the wrong thing to her, which was, “Your friend Katy is sitting in the corner and there’s plenty of room around her.”’

Tay’s response? ‘Katy who?’

‘I said, “Perry,” at which point she clearly let me know that she’s the exact opposite of her friend.’

Looks like their bad blood is still there! The two have been fighting since Katy apparently ‘stole’ Taylor’s back-up dancers for a tour back in 2012.
