ENEMIES: Calvin Harris announced he had recorded a song with Katy Perry

Last week Taylor’s ex Calvin Harris announced he had recorded a song with her long-time rival Katy Perry.

Now I can reveal that same track features another guest who had a beef with the Shake It Off Star, Nicki Minaj.

The trio will unveil the single, titled Soft Lips, after Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards in the US.

An insider told me: “Nicki and Katy Perry have already been teasing Soft Lips on social media. Although lyrically the song is not obviously about Taylor, it’s no coincidence that these three artists have come together.

“They have all had high-profile run-ins in with Taylor and it won’t have gone unnoticed by her.”

FEUD: Taylor’s fall-out with KP is of course legendary

“Nicki and Katy Perry have already been teasing Soft Lips on social media”


All they need now is a guest rap from Kanye West to make it the ultimate diss track.

Soft Lips will undoubtedly be seen as revenge for past bust-ups.

Taylor’s fall-out with KP is of course legendary and rumoured to have inspired her diss-song Bad Blood.

Then last year Calvin was none too pleased when she ended their relationship, revealed secrets about a song they made and got together with Tom Hiddleston.

Minaj’s beef with the country pop star dates back to 2015 when they got into a Twitter spat over the MTV nominations not including black artists.

Mid spat, the rapper blew Katy Perry a supportive kiss suggesting she was on Team KP.

More recently they were thought to have made up but then Minaj appeared to mock Taylor when she amassed more Billboard hits than her.

Taylor is doing a good job of rising above the melodrama.

She is currently keeping a low profile while recording her new album in Nashville, and is expected to be launching a comeback in the autumn.


Irish belle Una Healy blames Ed Sheeran for making Galway a crazy place to be now.

The Saturdays star turned solo artist can’t escape Sheeran’s hit Galway Girl, saying: “It’s really big over in Ireland.

“My dad is from Galway actually, and lots of my cousins, so there’s a lot of weddings with first dances to Galway Girl and a lot of Galway girls being serenaded with Ed’s song. It’s done so well but it’s totally in his nature, with his grandparents being Irish.”

Una has shot a new video for her song Battlelines at London’s Bush Hall.

She told me: “It’s a song about the ups and downs of a relationship, the fights and making up.”


Harry Styles is getting his very own edition of Carpool Karaoke.

Fans will get to hear just how good he is at singing 1D classics without the other boys later this week.

And they will also witness another dodgy shirt! It’s all part of a weeklong residency on James Corden’s US TV show where, as usual, Harry gave nothing away.

He coughed and looked away when Corden grilled him about his on-off relationship with Kendall Jenner.

Meanwhile, poor old Kendall fell flat on her face during a casual bike ride.

Sister Khloe filmed the model going ass-over-t*t.

Harry’s still refusing to admit their love affair must have hit her hard…
