Katy Perry: Swish Swish

Something sassy to get you through the middle of the week…

As my husband Justin says, “it’s the only song worth talking about right now.” I don’t know that I agree with that, but I do agree that everyone should have a diss-track for their frenemies. “Swish Swish” is Katy Perry’s diss track about Taylor Swift. It contains such lyrical gems as: “A tiger/don’t lose no sleep/don’t need opinions/from a shellfish or a sheep”  and “Your game is tired/you should retire/you’re ’bout as cute as/an old coupon expired.”  Profanity warning. Katy Perry is too hot to handle.


Mary Birnbaum is an NYC-based opera director, working with companies throughout the US and internationally. Her recent production of The Rape of Lucretia at Juilliard garnered a rave from Anthony Tommasini at The New York Times who called it “viscerally overwhelming”. One of NYFOS’s favorite guest artists, she has directed several NYFOS@Juilliard programs, including Protest, which will appear on the Mainstage series in 2018. Upcoming projects include Halka at Bard Music Festival and La Finta Giardiniera at Juilliard.
