Katy Perry and Taylor Swift appear to be putting their bad blood behind them. Swift has been sharing behind-the-scenes photos and videos from her Reputation tour rehearsals over the last week, and on Tuesday, opening night of the tour, she showed off something really special: a gift from her onetime rival.
“So I just got to my dressing room and found this actual olive branch. This means so much to me,” the “Delicate” singer said in an Instagram Stories clip, which she captioned, “Thank you Katy.”
The olive branch came with a handwritten note, which is only partially visible in the video. Eagle-eyed fans deciphered the first few lines, though, and they mention Perry wanting to “clear the air” with Swift. “Hey Old Friend — I’ve been doing some reflecting on past miscommunications and hurt feelings between us,” the note begins.
The singers’ feud has been well documented over the years, both in the press and in Swift and Perry’s music, but the “Roar” performer said last year that she was “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 love her, and I want the best for her. And I think she’s a fantastic songwriter,” Perry told Arianna Huffington in June. “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.”
We’re definitely feeling all of those things right now.
