Katy Perry really wants to bury the hatchet with Taylor Swift. In an interview with Australia's Today show, Perry said that despite the five years of arguing between her and Swift, she still loves her and her music.
Should we just cancel the last five years then? No, I refuse. This must end in a gladiator's duel!
Just kidding. That's objectively the worst idea ever. They should have a transparent heart-to-heart where both of them own up to the pain they caused, accept each other's apologies, and be done with it.
Got that, Kay Swift? Cool. Great. Moving on.
Leading up to and following the release of her newest album, Witness (which came out on June 9, 2017), Perry has been sending very public PSAs to Swift saying she wants to end the feud between them (even though one of her songs, "Swish Swish," is a clear response to Swift's "Bad Blood").
Perry also said the same to Arianna Huffington during a weekend-long livestream she did to promote Witness the weekend it dropped. Perry told Huffington,
To further cement the fact that she wants this fight with Swift to be over and done with, during a live performance of her single "Swish Swish," Perry changed some of the lyrics to seemingly send a message to Swift.
Like we said before, most fans believe "Swish Swish" is a response to Swift's "Bad Blood," which is widely believed to be about her beef with Perry. The official lyrics in "Swish Swish" read,
During this one performance, however, Perry reportedly swapped the "Don't you come for me" line with “God bless you on your journey, oh baby girl.”
So yes, it's pretty plain to see that Katy Perry is ready to call it quits on this fight with Taylor Swift. But is Taylor?
