Bye bye, bad blood?
Words by Jadie Troy-Pryde
Over the weekend, Katy Perry locked herself in a house for 72 hours and livestreamed it all in order to promote her new album, Witness. And it worked because it has had everybody talking – she has been picking apart her performances where she was accused of cultural appropriate, she ranked her former lovers on their bedroom skills, and she even stated she wants to end the on-going feud with Taylor Swift.
Wait – what?
The two popstars were friends way back when, but after some confusion with who had dibs on some backup dancers (as explained by Katy during her stint on Carpool Karaoke) it all went a bit pear-shaped.
However, a few years after Taylor’s diss track Bad Blood and Katy’s not-so-subtle tweets, it seems that the spat might be over – whether Taylor likes it or not.
Although she has never confirmed it, Katy’s new song Swish Swish is rumoured to be about the fallout. So when she performed the track after her Big Brother style lock in, fans were quick to notice that she changed the lyrics.
Instead of ‘Don’t come for me,‘ Katy sang: ‘God bless you on your journey,‘ and many believe this is aimed at Taylor. Why? Because in a recent interview she apologised to Taylor, saying: ‘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.
‘There’s a lot of other things out there in the world that people need to be focused on. God bless her on her journey. God bless her. Honestly.’
Over to you, Taylor…
