Katy Perry and Taylor Swift were enemies for a long time… and I mean a LONG time.
From 2013 the two have no spoken after Perry ‘stole’ some of her backup dancers.
The two embraced in matching fast-food costumes, signalling a white flag to the world via Swift’s ‘You Need To Calm Down film clip’.
You can watch it here:
Stellar Magazine interviewed Perry where she said the pair are in fact, “not very close”.
“Well, we don’t have a very close relationship because we are very busy, but we text a lot,” she said.
“I was impressed by her documentary (Netflix’s Miss Americana) because I saw some self-awareness starting to happen and I saw a lot of vulnerability. I was really excited for her to be able to show that to the world: that things aren’t perfect, they don’t have to be and it’s more beautiful when they aren’t.”
Forgiving an enemy is a hard gig. Something I have never done tbh.
Perry went on to say, “Even though it was difficult, it was important to make that appearance in the music video because people want people to look up to.
“We wanted it to be an example of unity. Forgiveness is important. It’s so powerful. If you can forgive your enemy, that’s amazing. As difficult as it is!”
Good on her! I might go call the girl who stole my boyfriend in high school.
