Fans of the two feuding singers were rejoicing after Katy Perry decided to send Taylor Swift an actual olive branch as a sign of peace. But it looks like their feud is far from over!
The problem between them now is related to the apology letter Katy also sent alongside the olive branch.
‘I just got to my dressing room and found this actual olive branch. This means so much to me,’ Taylor captioned a vid that featured a few lines from the handwritten letter while the rest was covered by the envelope in which it came.
‘Hey old friend, I have been doing some reflecting on past miscommunications and hurt feelings between us,’ Katy’s words read.
She also mentions that she was ‘deeply sorry’ and that she wanted to finally ‘clear the air.’
Social media users reacted to the vid Taylor posted.
‘World leaders should take notes from Katy Perry and Taylor Swift. For future reference,’ one fan commented.
‘OMG what a concept: Taylor Swift bringing out Katy Perry and them jokingly singing Bad Blood and Swish Swish as a mashup and laughing at the end,’ another tweeted.
It is safe to say they were disappointed to learn that the peace did not last.
As you probably remember, the performers’ longstanding feud started when Katy supposedly hired some of Taylor’s backup dancers right before her tour.
The latter accused her former friend of trying to sabotage her shows.
‘She basically tried to sabotage my entire tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people right from under me,’ Taylor said during an interview for Rolling Stone at the time.
In response, Katy was quick to tweet: ‘Watch out for the Regina George in sheep’s clothing.’
Later on, she acknowledged their conflict once again while on Carpool Karaoke with James Corden.
‘She started it, and it is time for her to finish it… I tried to talk to her about it, and she would not speak to me. I do the right thing any time it seems like a fumble,’ Katy said.
