When did you follow up lastly with the rift between Katy Perry and Taylor Swift? Although it’s been quite some time that we believe their feud met its end, the ‘Roar’ singer has eventually discovered her relation with her friend cum enemy, Taylor Swift!
While interacting on Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp about her brand new release, ‘Smile’, Sian Welby shocked Katy revealing her unknown connection with Swift, that she happened to be Taylor’s cousin. Yes, you read it right.
Unearthing the bond
The surprise came when Sian sparked, “I read somewhere that your baby might have a very famous aunt. Apparently, you and Taylor Swift are ninth cousins.” The statement made Katy share a joke on the show who replied, “Well, we fight like cousins”. Meanwhile, the Con Colma star voiced she hardly knew anything like that. And then? Katy decided to conduct a DNA test with the Cats actress.
A reality check
In recent times, Katy has turned too open to partnering with Taylor Swift. While she appeared in an interview with Extra, a question was posed to Katy asking her to address such rumours. Then she answered in a self-effacing manner, “Well, you’re just gonna have to tune in to Idol next week if all rumours are true or false.” Her words however intended to promote the current series of American Idol.
Calming the dispute
If we trace her feud with Taylor Swift, it started long back in 2014 over the hiring company. The Miss Americana star engaged several dancers for her ‘Red Tour’, who performed for Katy Perry previously. It was just after a few months that the bunch of hoofers returned to Katy to join her on her ‘Prism Tour’. Unfortunately, Taylor’s tour was abandoned at that time.
Later on, things were assumed to get better between the duo when Katy Perry sent a real olive branch to The Giver star in 2018.
