Katy Perry apologizes to Taylor Swift right when their feud was starting to reach a fever pitch. “It’s time to move on,” said Perry. During an interview on Arianna Huffington’s Thrive Global Podcast, Perry said it was time to put an end to her 3-year-long feud with Swift:
“I’m ready to let it go. Absolutely, 100 percent. I forgive her, and I’m sorry for anything I ever did, and I hope the same from her, and I think it’s actually ― I think it’s time.
There are bigger fish to fry, and there are bigger problems in the world. I love her and I want the best for her, and I think she’s a fantastic songwriter, and like, I think that 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, we can do this.’
Maybe I don’t agree with everything she does, and maybe she doesn’t agree with everything I do, but like, I just ― I really, truly, want to come together, and in a place of love and forgiveness, and understanding and compassion.”
Perry then preceded to belt out a line from the insanely popular “Frozen” anthem, “Let It Go” and added, “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. I want to operate in a positive, kind space. I want to be an example of kindness, compassion, love, and I forgive and forget. That wasn’t easy for me.”
Swift’s representatives didn’t immediately comment when HuffPost reached out to them.
In case you missed it, the feud started back in 2014, when Swift said she had co-written the song “Bad Blood” about a friend who “tried to sabotage an entire arena tour.”
Apparently, she was referring to her dancers leaving to join Perry’s tour, per their contract agreements.
After that, the feud escalated with both of the singers taking shots at the other. Hopefully, this is the end of it.
