Is this really happening? The Katy Perry and Taylor Swift feud appears to finally be over. The two have reportedly been feuding for a couple of years when Swift accused Perry of sabotaging her tour and stealing her backup dancers. Swift went on to write her hit song “Bad Blood” over this and Perry responded with her song, “Swish Swish.”
Recently, Katy Perry spoke about her long-time feud with Taylor Swift when she went on the Late Late Show Primetime Special with James Corden. “What I want to say is that I’m ready for that BS to be done,” Perry told Corden. “Now, there is the law of cause and effect. You do something, there’s going to be a reaction, and trust me daddy, there’s going to be a reaction. It’s all about karma, right? I think personally that women together, not divided, and none of this petty bulls–t, women together will heal the world.”
It appears Perry meant what she said, as soon after her interview, she sent Taylor Swift an olive branch with a card. Taylor Swift, who has been rehearsing for her Reputation Tour, was surprised to find the gifts in her dressing room. Swift, who shared the olive branch and card on her Instagram story, was surprised and touched by the gesture. The card was addressed “old friend,” saying, “I’ve been doing some reflecting on past miscommunications and the feelings between us. I really want to clear the air…”
The card appears to show Perry apologizing to Swift as it says, “I’m deeply sorry.” Is this any indication that the rumors were in fact true? Regardless, the gift Perry gave Swift had a deeper meaning. An olive branch is traditionally regarded as a symbol of peace. Read more about this story on E! here.
