In 2009 Katy Perry, Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus all shared the same dressing room at the Grammy Awards. All three were rising stars – although yet to achieve the stratospheric level they now occupy. This was before the feud that saw Perry and Swift at odds for years, so they were all friends. However, even friends might have been taken aback by the odd request that Perry made of the other two – which she only later revealed.
All three singers performed at the 2009 show. Perry did a version of her hit single “I Kissed A Girl,” which had featured on her smash 2008 album One of the Boys, while Swift and Cyrus performed the former’s “Fifteen,” which would feature on Fearless, an album that would see Swift return to the Grammys the following year, this time as a winner.
