  • 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.
