Another day means another chapter in the ongoing Taylor Swift and Katy Perry feud, but could a new development in the story mean one of the singers is ready to put the drama behind them? It looks like a yes!
The “Chained to the Rhythm” singer has been pretty honest with her fans and the public with what originally sparked the bad blood, while Taylor on the other hand sneakily released her entire music catalog back on streaming services the same day Katy’s new album was released.
At the time it seemed like perhaps this feud might have been kicked into overdrive, but in a surprise twist – Katy just admitted in a special episode of The Huffington Post’s The Thrive Podcast, that she doesn't want to just let all the drama go, but that she feels nothing but love for Taylor.
Katy shared the same feeling when she was asked by a fan how she felt about Taylor on her YouTube channel, where she's been holding a #KPWWW (Katy Perry Witness World Wide) live stream for the past few days.
She explained during her interview, “I am ready to let it go. I forgive her and I’m sorry for anything I ever did, and I hope the same from her. I think it’s actually like, I think it’s time. There are bigger fish to fry, and there are real problems in the world. You know what I’m saying? And I love her, and I want the best for her.”
That’s not where Katy stopped. She actually went on to praise Taylor for singing and songwriting capabilities! Yup, a huge step was just taken.
She continued to say, “I think she’s a fantastic songwriter, and I think that, you know, 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, well we can do this.'"
“Like maybe I don’t agree with everything she does and she doesn’t agree with everything I do, but I just really truly want to come together in a place of love and forgiveness and understanding and compassion,” Katy continued to admit.
Wow! This is major! Aside from Katy admitting she has nothing but love for the "Shake It Off" singer, a possible end to their feud seems like something that everyone has been patiently waiting for.
The ball is now in Taylor's court, and hopefully she's also ready to put an official end to all this.
