However Katy's managers were quick to shoot down the rumors. "Katy Perry's managers at Direct Management Group confirm that this story is completely false," they said in a statement to ET. "Katy Perry was not involved in writing, singing, recording or registering this song."
The year 1984 is significant as it's not only the year in which Katy was born, but it was also seen as a play on Taylor's hit album, 1989, which features "Bad Blood." The single is believed to be about Taylor's rumored feud with Katy.
"1984" is still registered on BMI's site, which credits Austin Dallas, Carlsson Andreas Michael, Collier Patrick, and Tokio Mazerine as songwriters. Katy has worked with Carlsson before on her 2009 hit, "Waking Up In Vegas."
