On Monday, bestselling author Ian Fineman and SE Publishing shared with Examiner exclusive excerpts from their latest book released today: Bad Blood: Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, and the End of America’s Sweetheart. The unauthorized work by Fineman, whose previous works have centered on everyone from Amy Schumer to Charlie Sheen, paints a complex portrait of Swift.
“Love her or hate her,” Fineman tells Examiner in a provided statement, “Taylor Swift has become one of the most celebrated and instantly recognizable recording superstars on the planet. But today, there are two distinct camps that surround the country-turned-pop singer.”
According to Fineman, there are those who believe Swift to be a loving, positive, and unfailingly faithful friend who stands with good people and behind great causes. And then there are others — others who say Swift is petty, obsessed with one-upping Katy Perry in all matters personal and professional, and someone who turns every philanthropic gesture into a self-serving publicity stunt.
Whether or not Taylor Swift is still America’s sweetheart is now up for debate. And Fineman is tackling that debate head-on by going inside Taylor Swift’s battle with Katy Perry, her ugly social media spats, and the root cause of her rapidly deteriorating public persona to see what, if anything, is truly to blame for Taylor Swift’s dramatically changing reputation.
Is Taylor Swift really at fault or is she the victim of conniving former friends and a throng of media reporters and press outlets who simply wish to see the Bad Blood singer fall from grace?
“You just might find yourself stunned by some of the answers to these intriguing questions,” Fineman says.
“Bad Blood” is available now on Amazon for $2.99.
