It seems like Katy Perry and Taylor Swift have finally buried the hatchet and are actually supporting one another now. The “Roar” crooner debuted her new song called “Never Really Over” on Friday, May 31, and the 29-year-old quickly added the song to her “ME!” playlist on Apple Music.
“Everything that happens to us is just part of a story we’ll tell someday. These songs are the soundtrack to my story at the moment. I love this playlist for kitchen dance parties, long drives home, sun-soaked reflection or aggressive bopping,” she wrote on the music website. “All songs have been loved and appreciated by ME!” The 34-year-old even liked Taylor’s most recent Twitter post of her and her new cat, Benjamin Button.
As fans recall, the Hollywood A-listers started fighting over backup dancers in 2013. “She … tried to sabotage an entire arena tour,” Taylor said without calling Katy by her name.
Then, during a 2014 Rolling Stone interview, the “Look What You Made Me Do” songstress revealed that her track “Bad Blood” was about someone in the music industry. “For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not,” she confessed. “She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, ‘Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?’”
Luckily, the California native extended a literal olive branch to the blonde beauty before her Reputation tour in 2018. “Hey Old Friend,” the note read. “I’ve been doing some reflecting on past miscommunications … I really want to clear the air … I am deeply sorry.”
Since then, it seems like the former frenemies have been getting along. Katy even revealed she wouldn’t mind working with the pop princess one day. “I mean, I’m making music with Zedd. I’m open, open, open,” she said during an interview with Entertainment Tonight at the iHeartRadio Music Awards in March.
There were rumors swirling that the duo might even be working on a song together, but as of now neither has confirmed the potential news.
Of course, fans are freaking out and hoping that these two collaborate in the future. One person wrote, “Katy liked Taylor’s tweet, and now, Taylor is adding ‘Never Really Over’ to her Apple Music Playlist. As someone who has stanned their friendship since 2008, this is everything my 6-year-old and 16-year-old self could ever want and more,” while another echoed, “Taylor and Katy supporting each other. I am emotional. This is the swiftcats era.” A third person exclaimed, “Katy attending TS7 world tour as a special guest and performing ‘Never Really Over’ with Taylor … Yes? YESSS!!!”
Umm, let’s make it happen!
