Katy Perry Says Sorry to Taylor Swift and Says She Forgives Her

Is this finally the end to the Katy Perry-Taylor Swift saga?

It all started with Taylor Swift's cover interview with Rolling Stone back in 2015. Talking about one of the angriest songs on her 1989 record, people assumed she was referring to Katy Perry when she spoke about who "Bad Blood" was about. She tells the magazine, "For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not. 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?'" She would recount how the person did something horrible, which made her think that they were enemies more than friends. While she never confirmed or denied that it was about Katy, the Witness singer shared her side of the story when she was a guest on James Corden's Carpool Karaoke last month.

And just this weekend, on the release of Katy's latest album—in what seems almost like a calculated move—Taylor's whole discography was suddenly back on streaming sites and is reportedly outperforming Katy's songs (on US Spotify, at least). Fans are calling out Taylor's shady move, but a source says that the move to return her music to the streaming service was to celebrate her Record Industry Association of America milestone (selling more than 100 million song units, beating Katy, Justin Bieber, Kanye West, and Drake) and not to throw any shade at her rumored rival.

But in an interesting turn of events, Katy seems eager to finally end this feud after releasing Witness. In an interview with Arianna Huffington for The Thrive Global Podcast, Katy says she's ready to let it go. She says, "I forgive her and I'm sorry for anything I ever did, and I hope the same from her." She continues to explain that there are much bigger problems in the world and adds, "And I love her, and I want the best for her. And I think she's a fantastic songwriter, and I think that, you know, if we, both her and I, can be representatives of strong women that come together despite their differences, I think the whole world is going to go like, 'Yeah, well we can do this.' I don't know. Like 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." She then ended her answer breaking out in song. A few lines from Frozen's "Let It Go," of course.

Her parting words on the issue, "There's a lot of other things out there in the world that people need to be focused on, and I truly, like, God bless her on her journey. God bless her. Honestly."

Here's hoping that this is truly the end and that there will no longer be any bad blood between these two.

When everything around you suddenly turns dark, the first thing we'd prolly do, as humans, is to find and grab anything that is closest and nearest to us. We'll hold onto them for as long as we can, trying to collect ourselves and gather courage to adjust our eyesights to the pitch black environment that's consuming us minute by minute. And then you'd hear nothing. Your sense of hearing would somehow go off after not seeing anything for quite awhile. You'll let loose. Cry. Panic. You'll be exhausted for fighting your way out. Then just when you're about to stop and give up, you're no longer afraid. There's only this deafening silence and pithole of darkness that's gonna eat you up alive. And surprisingly, you'll make a home out of it.

You'll make a home out of the darkness that when a ray of light suddenly hits you, you'll try to avoid it. You'll try to cover your eyes. You'll try to cover your ears from the voices trying to help you get out of it. You'll try to hide because your mind and body will go against your will to come out and live. Because the darkness that used to scare you, now comforts you in a way you thought has helped you survived life. And you'll try to live. Day by day. In the darkness. Not knowing where to go. Not knowing where to start. Not knowing who is with you. You will try to live until the darkness that once surrounds you is now within you. And everyday, it's gonna be a cycle of subtle torture. But let me tell you a secret. The darkness won't make you whole.

You'll be broken. And in those hair-like cracks, the light will stubbornly fight its way through until it warms you up. Until you realize to check the switch and turn it on. Until you allow other people to help you find your way back in the light. Until you realize you're ready to live in light again. There's a light at the end of this long and dreading tunnel. The only question that matters: will you let them in?
