  • Katy Squashes Beef With Taylor

    Katy Perry and Taylor Swift's infamous feud started thanks to the opening of Katy's Teenage Dream Tour back in 2013 - and it ended today with the opening night of Taylor's Reputation Tour.

    You might recall that the impetus for the entire five year feud was that a select group of backup dancers, who had worked regularly with Katy, decided to leave Taylor's Red Tour to join Katy's Teenage Dream Tour, where their skills were apparently being put to better use. Taylor decided to take this move as a slight against her and held Katy personally responsible, and spent the next few years dropping shade into her interviews about an "unnamed female artist" who sabotaged her tour.

    Things came to a head with the release of 'Bad Blood' in 2014, which Perry clapped back at with last year's diss track 'Swish Swish'. Katy seemed to extend the hand of forgiveness shortly after that single's release, but it wasn't until today that things really seemed to be coming to a head.

    Swift recently posted an update on her Snapchat story which showed her receiving a gift on the opening night of her tour. The present contained a literal olive branch (a symbol of letting things go), a handwritten letter, and some very Perry-esque stationary which leaves no doubt in our minds who sent the gift.

    While we don't know exactly what the letter says, fans have deciphered the phrases, "I've been doing some reflecting on past miscommunications and other feelings between us...", "deeply sorry", and "clear the air".

    It seems like the feud may finally be over. Knowing how these two interweave their songs with their personal lives, we wouldn't be surprised if a collaboration was in their future.

    Honestly, they're both great artists. I listen to both and while I may not love either of them with all my life, they make catchy songs and know how to write a good hook. I'd definitely listen to a collab if it happened. Throw Gaga in there for good measure.

    I hate the fact that people jumped ship over believing Katy was the wrong person in this fight. Im certain that was one of the reasons why Witness underperformed. Im not being funny but Taylor is hardly an angel tbh.

    I hate it too! :vacuum: Even with the way Taylor released this news, it kinda seems like she's forcing Katy to take full responsibility and not owning up to her major part in the feud at all. I guess a snake never changes it's scales. :wink:

    I actually think that's what makes Katy the mature one in this situation. By sending her the olive branch on the first day of her tour, she knew Taylor was gonna post about it and she, herself, is willing to take the blame in order to see this feud end. At the end of the day, Katy just proved to the world that she's the bigger person.

    The bigger person? Or is this whole situation really just a publicity stunt for her new single 'Bigger Than Me (The Olive Branch Remix) (Feat. Juicy J)'? :orly:

    Don't forget, Migos will be on the remix as well spewing homophobic one-liners. Bad publicity is still publicity.

      Back in June, we reported that Dr. Luke's legal team had demanded that Kesha hand over a group of select texts between herself and Lady Gaga as evidence in their ongoing defamation trial. According to Luke, the texts were proof that Kesha had defamed his name publicly by spreading three intentional lies about him: that he had raped her, that he had given her drugs against her will, and that he had also raped Katy Perry.
      Up until now, those texts were under lock and key. But thanks to the transparency of the New York legal system, they have now been uploaded online for anyone to view as they please. The original document is online and is probably worth a look just for the sheer bizarreness of watching two major popstars texting like twelve year old girls, but if you don't feel like scrolling through pages of digital information you can read the full transcript below.
      Apart from confirmation that Kesha was indeed under the apprehension that Luke raped Perry - an accusation that both Perry and Luke have both vehemently denied - the texts also brought to light the fact that both Kesha and Gaga at one point considered Perry "mean". While Gaga has always shrugged it off in interviews, the rivalry between her and Perry is well-documented, meaning her claim is pretty unsurprising. But Kesha's negative opinion is a little more confusing, because as far as we know the two were always good terms, with Kesha even appearing as a background extra in Perry's breakthrough music video for 'I Kissed A Girl'.
      Not long after the documents were released online, Gaga took to her social media of choice to retract her claims, countering that Perry is "truly a kind soul" and that her past opinions were a result of "differences w/ each other".
      And it wasn't long before Perry responded with a Tweet of her own, attesting to the fact that there was no bad blood between the two whatsoever.
      Conspicuously absent in the Twitter love-fest was Kesha, who kept quiet about the whole situation. Although it would be easy to suggest that Kesha still holds a grudge against Perry, it's just as likely that she's been advised by her legal team to keep quiet on the issue given that it's part of an ongoing case.
      Either way, we have to wonder what exactly happened in the past that would lead both Gaga and Kesha to consider Perry "mean". Was it really just the fact that Katy wasn't coming forward about her alleged rape, or was there more to it? We were always led to believe that Taylor Swift was the snake of the music industry, but maybe there was another side to the story we haven't been let in on.

      It's hard to believe that it's been four years since Kesha launched a lawsuit against her onetime producer and continued manager Dr. Luke, and that even now in 2018 the full extent of that lawsuit is only just becoming apparent. Because while Kesha's lawsuit against Luke was dropped several years ago, Luke himself was quick to launch a counter-suit against Kesha which alleged that she intentionally defamed his name to the tune of ten million dollars.
      Luke's suit is based on three alleged falsities that Kesha stated about him in various outlets. One is that he raped her, and another is that he gave her drugs against her will. But up until now the third falsity has gone unknown. With it's reveal today, Luke has made the whole suit even messier by  dragging two other A-list popstars into the suit.
      We learnt a while ago that Luke's team had asked Lady Gaga to turn over her text messages with Kesha to the court as evidence, and now we know why. According to Luke, Kesha told Gaga in a series of text messages that Luke had raped not only herself, but Katy Perry as well.

      The allegation is an interesting twist in the tale of deceit. If Luke's claim is correct - which still isn't a sure thing, as context could account for a lot in this case - then the truth of the matter between him and Kesha comes down to this very text. If she was telling the truth about Katy, it's likely that she was telling the truth about her own experience; if she was lying, her credibility is entirely wasted and there's no reason she couldn't have lied about her own abuse.
      Of course, the only person other than Luke who knows about the alleged Katy Perry abuse is Katy herself. For the record, Katy has never said anything about Luke raping her, or said anything negative about Luke at all for that matter. When it was noted that she hadn't worked with him for her Witness album, she simply stated "I had to leave the nest".
      Katy has apparently been deposed for the case, but it's so far unknown what she's said. We do at least know why Luke chose the figure of $10 million for the lawsuit, however; according to him, that's the amount that he lost out on when he wasn't able to produce Katy's albums due to the lawsuit.
      So tell us: what are your thoughts on this absolute mess?

      During 'Look What You made Me Do' on Taylor Swift's new tour she use a big snake that reminds A LOT of the one Shakira use in Ojos Así in the Tour of the Mongoose in 2002.
       
      the fãs already spoken in twitter, but what do you think about that?
