She’s made a point of being completely transparent in recent interviews. And while Katy Perry took over the chat show circuit with frank discussions of her love life and feud with Taylor Swift, she revealed another part of herself entirely on Tuesday. The 32-year-old showed off her white sports bra underneath a sheer blue windbreaker and matching trackpaints as she jetted out of New York. The self-effacing star sported cat-eye sunglasses as she listened to music on her phone for her day of travel.
The night before she told James Corden she thinks Taylor Swift started the feud, and ‘it’s time for her to finish it.’ And just hours later Katy said she’s ‘ready’ to bury the hatchet during her interview on SiriusXM’s Morning Mash Up on Tuesday. The singer, who said she would ‘absolutely’ answer Taylor’s Facetime call, revealed that she ‘did try and reach out to her.’ Adding: ‘I tried to do the right thing, the good thing, and you know, she shut me down and wrote a song.’ Katy wants to make peace with Taylor because she thinks ‘when women unite, the world is going to heal,’ she told the show’s hosts. The songstress continued on about uniting with other females.
Katy told the hosts that she ‘doesn’t have any beef really with anyone.’ The Rise singer added: ‘I love everyone, and honestly…I think we need to unite more than ever.’ Katy insisted that it ‘doesn’t matter where you come from, don’t matter what you believe, don’t matter which music you like the most, we are the same and we need to be unified.’ While fans have said that Katy’s new song Swish Swish is throwing shade to Taylor, she said it’s a song about her ‘winning’ and ‘being above that c**p.’ During the Late Late Show Primetime special, Katy said that she tried to end the rivalry. The California Girls singer said: ‘There’s a situation. Honestly, it’s really like she started it, and it’s time for her to finish it.’
Adding that she ‘tried to talk to her’ but Taylor ‘wouldn’t speak to me…I do the right think any time that it feels like a fumble. It was a full shutdown and then she writes a song about me.’ Katy concluded that ‘karma’ will prevail. The feud became public knowledge after Taylor wrote Bad Blood and told Rolling Stone magazine in 2014 that it was about a fellow pop singer.
Taylor had said ‘she basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour,’ adding that ‘she tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me.’ Katy has been talking about Taylor and their feud these past few days because she’s currently on a promotional tour for her new album Witness, which will be released on June 9.
