  • 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.

      I lowkey didn't even realise these two were still together after we saw him making out with Selena...
      But congrats to both of them! I hope they have a happy marriage and that this doesn't ruin Katy's chances of a #1.

      Poor Katy...  She had a flop album and a bad turn on Idol, people hated her Grammy's performance and now this. The girl just can't win!
      In my opinion, there's nothing even remotely racist about these shoes. The idea that just because something has big red lips means it has to be blackface is stupid and outdated. The fashion industry had another major blackface controversy this week when Gucci released this:

      And in my opinion that's equally ridiculous.

      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.
