    While Taylor Swift is off making snakey videos to foreshadow her comeback, Katy Perry has been making a teaser trailer for her new single, Swish Swish Bish. Despite her claims that she wants to end the feud with Taylor, it looks very much like a retaliation to Bad Blood if you consider the endless celebrity cameos, the fact that it’s Team Lion vs Team Sheep [ahem, that infamous Tweet from 2014 anyone?), and, you know, the fact that it has been hailed as a diss track since day dot.

    However, Katy’s fans are much more interested in her recent comments about ex-boyfriend, Orlando Bloom. Katy and Orlando dated for around ten months before calling time on their relationship earlier this year, but recent pictures of them at an Ed Sheeran concert have sparked rumours that they are reuniting after some time apart.

    And it wasn’t long before Katy started getting grilled about the romance. During an interview with Sirius FM’s Morning Mash Up, the hosts pressed the Roar singer to confess whether or not she was back with her British beau.

    ‘I think people are in and out of your life and it’s nice to keep people you love around you,’ Katy said.

    ‘When you get older, lines get blurred. And you know what I’m really busy. I’m about to go on tour for another year.’

    While it might sound as though Katy was brushing it off, many are pointing out that she used the word ‘love’ and are convinced that it’s a sign she’s giving their relationship another go.

    So perhaps we should start preparing ourselves for more candid snaps of their paddleboarding antics. But she could have been just talking generally about, you know, people in her life.

    We’re going to hope for the former.
