Katy Perry Says She 'Misses' Taylor Swift In The Most Awkward Twitter Hack Of All Time
Katy Perry is hacked on Twitter with a tweet saying 'miss you', presumably referencing her rumoured falling out with fellow popstar Taylor Swift, all as new music from Katy - a song called Witness 1.3 - is also leaked.
If you were casually scrolling your way through Twitter and noticed a bunch of tweets from Katy Perry to Taylor Swift saying just how much she 'missed' her old friend this weekend, it would have been fair to assume you were dreaming.
But it turns out this wasn't all something that took place in the deepest, darkest depths of your imagination and it actually did happen - or at least it sort of did thanks to a Twitter hacker who then appears to have gone on to attempt to leak what is thought to be new music from Katy too.
Yep, K-Pez is the latest celeb to fall victim to a Twitter hack, with a stream of tweets appearing on her account that most definitely weren't from her. At first glance, her 89 million followers might have assumed they were finally witnessing the end of whatever Bad Blood it is that is rumoured to exist between herself and T-Swiz, but after further inspection, it turns out it's all part of a hacker who seems to have gained access to Katy's profile.
While tweets were pretty innocuous to start, then came an offensive comment aimed at YouTube celeb Keemstar and the tweet to Tay Tay, which said: "miss u baby @taylorswift13." [sic]
While we'd like to think the two are back in the same squad at last, another tweet with the hashtag "#hackersgonnahack" seems to suggest otherwise. Then, over on the account the hacker had directed people to via another tweet, an apparent new song from Katy titled Witness 1.3 appeared to have been shared.
Luckily it seems like Katy's team were on it faster than the proverbial car bonnet and just 15 minutes later, all evidence had been deleted and the secondary account hosting the leak suspended.
If you need a bit of a rewind on just why Katy and Taylor are said to have fallen out, it all stems from the release of Bad Blood, which Ms Swift described as being about a former friend who basically nicked a whole load of tour dancers out from under her. While it's thought to be Katy she's referencing in the track, neither popstar has ever confirmed or denied the rift.
Either way, is this whole hack awkward af or what? Let us know with a tweet to @MTVUK.
