Katy Perry Spoke Candidly About Ending Her Feud With Calvin Harris

And for once this is something that has nothing to do with Taylor Swift.

Posted on

So as you probably already know, earlier this summer Calvin Harris released the track "Feels," a song featuring Katy Perry (as well as Pharrell Williams and Big Sean).

Naturally, this led to lots of people speculating that the two were doing it as a way to get back at their mutual "enemy" Taylor Swift.

But the reality is that working together was a way for them to put some bad blood behind them that actually pre-dates both of their Taylor-drama (™).

It all started in 2011, when Calvin, who was set to open for Katy on some of her California Dreams Tour dates, dropped out at the last minute, cighting production concerns.

Katy was not amused, and called him out publicly on Twitter.

Well, flash-forward to today where the new and more forgiving Katy told Ryan Seacrest — on his On Air with Ryan Seacrest show — how the collaboration was a way for them to end their beef, saying:

We’d had little falling outs here and there. We’d had some public Twitter spats… Eight years or so had passed. It was time to put all that behind us.

Katy went on to say it was Calvin who came up with the idea for the collab:

We just bumped into each other and he said, "I think I have a song that maybe you should come check out." I was like, "Cool," because we had always meant to work together for years and years and years.

I came to the studio and he played me a bunch of unfinished but really solid moments for his new record. Then he played me this one part for this new song called "Feels" and I was like, "Oh yeah!" This is like my favorite song off the record. I was just down to do it.

So there you go, the POWER of music. Now only if Katy and Taylor were to collab, maybe that would end their feud?!
