Katy Perry recently followed someone on Instagram with a very pointed username.

Sure, Taylor Swift has accused others of pitting women against each other. And Katy Perry has accused Taylor Swift of hypocritically accusing women of pitting women against each other. But now who is pitting women against what when? Are you keeping up? It's extremely complicated to follow, yet a culturally and personally enriching experience on par with reading Anna Karenina or visiting the Louvre.

So here's what happened: Perry was "caught" taking the probably very shrewdly considered action of following "sluttytaylorswift" on Instagram. According to E!:

Someone named Dinah owns the account, and the page is filled with random selfies and other pictures that have nothing to do with T.Swift. Perhaps Perry is just following the account because of the profile name, or maybe she's friends with Dinah.

Yes, great theory! Dinah could be Katy Perry's friend! Did you ever think about that? It could just be a huge coincidence that Katy Perry's friend Dinah who she follows on Instagram happens to have a username calling her sworn feud compatriot "slutty," and not in a way that's reappropriating the word.

From my research of scrolling through the 201 people who Katy Perry currently follows on Instagram, I came to the conclusion that she has likely unfollowed her (potentially) dear pal sluttytaylorswift. But I did notice that she follows a lot of powerful women, including Beyoncé, Tavi, Lily Allen, Ellie Goulding, Madonna, Miley Cyrus, and Lena Dunham. Theorists, what do you make of that? Free dissertation idea.
