Katy Perry Says She Loves Taylor Swift Despite Their Feud: “I Always Have”
Katy Perry really wantsto bury the hatchet with Taylor Swift. In an interview with Australia’sshow, Perry said that despite the five years of arguing between her and Swift, she still loves her and her music.
I mean, I love her, I always have. We’ve had our differences, but I just continue to say, God bless her on her journey.’
Should we just cancel the last five years then? No, I refuse. This must end in a !
Just kidding. That’s objectively the worst idea ever. They should have a transparent heart-to-heart where bothof them own up to the painthey caused, accept each other’s apologies, and bedone with it.
Got that, Kay Swift? Cool. Great. Moving on.
Leading up to and following the release of hernewest album,(whichcame 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).
During a segmentofwith James Corden, Perry said,
But what I want to say is that I’m ready for that BS to be done. 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 bullst, women together will heal the world.
Perryalso said the same to Arianna Huffington during aweekend-long livestream she did to promote the weekend it dropped.Perry told Huffington,
I forgive [Swift], and I’m sorry for anything I ever did, and I hope the same from her, and I think it’s actually I think it’s time. There are bigger fish to fry, and there are bigger problems in the world.
I love her and I want the best for her, and I think she’s a fantastic songwriter. I think that if we both, her and I, can be representatives of strong women that come together despite their differences, I think the whole world is going to go, like, Yeah, we can do this.’
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 withGod 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?
