That Katy Perry '1984' song is bogus
Despite rumors that a new Katy Perry song would be a hit against Taylor Swift, Perry has no connection with the alleged track. The news spread on Monday when a song called “1984” appeared on BMI’s registration website, with its artist listed as Perry.
“Katy Perry’s managers at Direct Management Group confirm that this story is completely false,” they said in a statement to EW. “Katy Perry was not involved in writing, singing, recording or registering this song.”
