In news that would have been unthinkable three years ago, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift have officially announced the end of their long-lived feud. The two American singers shared they'd reached "Peace at Last" with a tray of chocolate chip cookies that Swift sent Perry. "Feels good @taylorswift," she captioned it, tagging her location as "Let's Be Friends."
Swift commented thirteen pink hearts underneath the photo. Considering the number is Swift's lucky number, some fans believe this could be a sign that Perry and Swift are collaborating. Perry previously said she was "open" to working with Swift, so it's a possibility.
The post marks the end of a five-year feud between the pop stars that began with a messy dispute over backup dancers. Basically, Swift hired dancers for her Red tour who had previously danced for Perry.
Those dancers allegedly left a few months into the tour to join Perry on her Prism tour. Swift told her side of the story, without naming Perry, in a Rolling Stone interview in 2014. “She did something so horrible,” she said. “She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me.”
Until that point, they had been friends or at least friends in the sense that they posed for pictures together at awards shows.
