Katy Perry Says Taylor Swift Started Their Feud So She Needs to Finish It

With Katy Perry’s musical return came “Swish, Swish,” which has reopened the can of worms that is her feud with Taylor Swift. What will it take for it all to end? Katy shared the answer to that question with James Corden on his Carpool Karaoke Primetime Special Monday.

During the segment, Perry talked about her new track and the “situation” between her and T. Swift. “Honestly, it’s really like she started it and it’s time for her to finish it,” Katy said.

Whoa, what?! If you’re wondering what needs to be finished, the feud goes back to 2014 (yeah, it’s that drawn out) when some of Katy’s dancers briefly left her for Taylor’s tour. According to Perry, they later asked to rejoin her tour, which sparked the beef and “Bad Blood.”

Katy told Corden that she tried to talk to Tay about the dancers prior to the release of “Bad Blood.” “She wouldn’t speak to me. I do the right thing anytime that it feels like a fumble. It was a full shut-down and then she writes a song about me and I’m like, ‘OK, cool cool cool. That’s how you want to deal with it?’” Perry said.

Well, looks like the ball is in Taylor’s court and the situation can only be fixed if she apologizes. Katy said if Taylor texted her, it would be enough to put this all to rest. “Yeah, absolutely, 100 percent.”

Someone get them on the phone PLEASE. It’s time for this stop. Can’t we all just be friends?
