Did Katy Perry just extend a musical olive branch to Taylor Swift? Our sources say… maybe?
Long before Taylor Swift was duking it out with Kanye and Kim Kardashian West, she had another beef to contend with — one she felt so strongly about, in fact, that she (gasp!) wrote a song about it.
After Taylor reportedly penned “Bad Blood” about Katy Perry, who she insinuated to GQ stole backup dancers out from under Taylor in an effort to sabotage her world tour, Katy famously answered in kind with a tweet warning fans to “Watch out for the Regina George in sheep’s clothing,” cementing a growing rift in the ladies’ former friendship that has yet to be mended.
Since then, Katy has, for the most part, taken the high road regarding Taylor’s most recent beefs, but it appears she’s had her fill of remaining impartial. When asked by a fan during a Q&A earlier this evening about whether or not she’d ever collab with her former pal, Katy didn’t shy away from the question, addressing it head on.
Though she didn’t get into details about what exactly she wanted Taylor to apologize FOR (bashing her in GQ? Writing “Bad Blood?” That Selena Gomez lookalike fight scene in the accompanying video? Something else entirely?), it’s a prospect that has us freaking. Out.
Unfortch, we’ve got a sneaking suspicion that Katy shouldn’t hold her breath After all, “band-aids can’t fix bullet holes,” areweright?
And yet… maybe there’s hope after all? With a string of bad press and breakups as of late, it certainly couldn’t hurt Taylor’s image to (re)make a few friends in high places: Just look at the magic that went down when Nicki Minaj and Taylor took the time to talk things out following their own misunderstanding!
We, for one, can’t think of a more insanely badass power duo than these would be together, so fingers crossed that Tay concedes!
