Taylor Swift Might Have Revealed That "Bad Blood" is Not About Katy Perry

Or is it? Over the last few years, Taylor Swift and Katy Perry have been involved in an ever-lasting feud. Neither of them, publicly mentioning names. Just jabs here and there. At least, that's what we thought.
In 2014, Taylor gave an interview with Rolling Stone about her album 1989.
She said this of an unnamed female artist who was inspiration behind "Bad Blood:"
For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not. She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, “Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?” … She did something so horrible. I was like, “Oh, we’re just straight-up enemies.” And it wasn’t even about a guy! It had to do with business. She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me.
Obviously, everyone thinks (or knows) that it's about Katy Perry, no?
But then, Taylor was in a recent interview with GQ, and suggested that the song wasn't about Katy. Or did she??
You’re in a Rolling Stone 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.
