We have some exciting news for fans of Katy Perry and Taylor Swift. The longtime feud between the two stars may finally be over. There has been a lot of talk lately that they may have moved past their problems.
There is even talk that Swift and Perry might collaborate in the future. Rumors started swirli around a possible collaboration and makeup when Swift and Perry’s Instagram photos began lining up. At first, fans speculated it might be the release of new music from Taylor Swift, but soon Katy Perry followers realized similarities in the posts.
So, what happened to cause the feud in the first place and how did it end? Here’s what we know so far.
How the feud started between Taylor Swift and Katy Perry
You might remember back in 2012 when social media blew up over an apparent feud between Taylor Swift and Katy Perry. Fans on both sides were confused. It turns out that while Taylor Swift was getting ready to go on tour, several backup dancers left the show. Where did they go, you ask? They went to work for Katy Perry. Naturally, Swift was not happy.
Perry denied any wrongdoing. But Swift wouldn’t let it go. In fact, she even used the situation as inspiration for her song “Bad Blood.” In her mind, she felt like a friend and fellow musician tried to sabotage her arena tour.
According to Hollywood Life, Swift told Rolling Stone in an interview, “She did something so horrible,” Taylor said. “I was like, ‘Oh, we’re just straight-up enemies.’ And it wasn’t even about a guy! It had to do with business. She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me. And I’m surprisingly non-confrontational – you would not believe how much I hate conflict. So now I have to avoid her. It’s awkward, and I don’t like it.”
Is Taylor Swift and Katy Perry’s feud over?
All the talk about a possible end to the feud started in May 2018. Swift uploaded a video to her Instagram story showing an actual olive branch and a hand-written card. It seems as though Perry wanted to reach out to Swift and make thing right again.
According to the NY Times, the note reads, “Hey Old Friend — I’ve been doing some reflecting on past miscommunications and hurt feelings between us. I really want to clear the air” and “I’m deeply sorry.”
Recently, Perry was asked if she would be interested in collaborating with Taylor Swift in the future. If they were still feuding, she didn’t give any clue to it. Instead, her reaction has caused many to believe a collab may actually happen.
Will Taylor Swift and Katy Perry collaborate?
In an interview at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, Perry said she was “open” to doing a future collaboration with Swift. This news lit up social media. Can you even imagine what a collaboration might look or sound like?
Another possible sign, reported by Variety, might be the cryptic Instagram pics the singers have been posting lately. Many of them seem to go together. Almost like they are trying to share similar pictures as clues. Fans on both sides have been trying to put the puzzle pieces together.
Of course, it’s important to remember a few things before people start wearing their Katy-plus-Taylor-forever shirts. First, they are both incredibly busy, powerful women. They are at the top of their games professionally, and it might be difficult for them to find the time.
Also, keep in mind that Katy Perry was pretending to be an AI version of herself in that interview. There is a possibility that she didn’t want to say no. She was put on the spot after all.
