Bad Blood Lyrics
You know it used to be mad love
So take a look at what you've done
Cause baby now we got bad blood
Now we got problems
And I don't think we can solve them
You made a really deep cut
And baby now we...

Basically it's about Katy Perry( in the video Arsyn played by Selena Gomez). About how they used to be friends but then katy Perry stabbed Taylor in the back by stealing dancers from Taylor's tour into her tour instead. So now they have "Bad Blood".
Great song by Taylor :)

I think it's about someone that she was once really good friends with and they unexpectedly stabbed her in the back and she's basically saying I don't wmat anything to do with you anymore

This song is about a friendship or relationship that was poisoned by something that the other person did. It was personally offensive to Taylor. We know this because she makes a lot of references to pain like "wounds" and "scars on my back from your knife",

First of all, nobody on this website cares if the song is about Katy Perry or not, we just care about what the song is about. Now onto the lyrics analysis:
I believe this song is about someone who the singer was really close to-lover, friend, family member, etc.- but they betrayed her in some terrible way- like if it's a lover cheating, friend stealing her boyfriend, or a family member humiliating her. I think that this song is really perfect to play for someone who betrays you. Thank you for reading this.

I think this song is about how Taylor had a argument (idk what it was about) with Katy Perry and maybe she was expressing how mad she was at Katy so yeah. <3 btw you should listen to her country songs

I wanted to do something for this record I wanted to be like the fun and having best moments to have make everything all better. The song came from Taylor, Kevin told her if we can cover for her song bad blood. It had more powerful and it had the beats and violins.

My personal opinion;
Its about a relationship in which one cheated on the other and then they had problems in their relation and (When she says bad love) and after the second time tha person cheats on the other it makes everything worse(when she says bad blood)and create a BIG problem between eachother.

I feel it's about a bad relationship. Taylor Swift is saying,"We are over"

it is about anyone who is toxic and cannot ever be trusted again. bad blood is a very dangerous thing in all reality...it's actually life threatening,in a literal sense that is to say, and in a metaphorical sense it can be a draining relationship like an emotional vampire of any kind--friend, lover, spouse, or mentor, or superior, or teacher..any type of relationship can cause a type of bad blood..it's basically a judas' kiss of death to be associated with anyone like this..on an intimate or professional level!! i think Taylor summed it up quite well too.

This song it's pretty ambiguous. It can be used in a relationship and a friendship.
You could have "a mad love" for you boyfriend, and trusted him, but he betrayed you and it felt like a stab in the back.
You could've think you and your friend had a "mad love" for each other, but then he/she stabbed you in the back.
In both cases, "you have problems" with that person, and "you don't think you can solve them"
You can have bad blood with an ex-boyfriend, or bad blood with an ex-friend.
"And now we have bad blood"
Nicely done, Taylor.
