Less than a week after accusing Taylor Swift of “assassinating” her character, Katy Perry has forgiven the 1989 artist and says she wants the best for her.
In a recent interview with the Thrive Global Podcast, Katy Perry reflected on her long-standing feud with Taylor Swift, admitting she is ready to move on.
“I am ready to let it go,” Perry said. “I forgive her and I’m sorry for anything I ever did, and I hope the same from her. I think it’s actually like, I think it’s time. There are bigger fish to fry, and there are real problems in the world.”
“I love her, and I want the best for her,” Perry added. “I think that if we both [her and Swift] can be representatives of strong women that come together despite their differences, I think the whole world is going to be like, ‘Yeah, well we can do this.'”
Perry’s forgiving comments come less than a week after she accused Swift of attempting to “assassinate” her character.
“I wish that I could turn the other cheek every single time, but I’m also not a pushover, you know? Especially when someone tries to assassinate my character with little girls [her fans]. That’s so messed up,” Perry said in a recent radio interview.
These comments by Perry were seemingly followed up by what many believed was Swift’s response. On the eve of Perry’s latest album’s (Witness) release, Swift announced all of her music would be available on every streaming service beginning at midnight.
With this feud dating back years now, there is no telling if it will truly come to an end. While Perry has seemed to extend an olive branch in Swift’s direction, we will have to see if the “Bad Blood” artist will accept it or not.
