People Think Katy Perry Will Be In Taylor Swift's Next Music Video And I'm Living For The Drama

Please let this be the end of the feud.

Posted on

You probably already know that Taylor Swift and Katy Perry have been involved in what feels like the longest celebrity feud of all time since 2014.

Basically, if you're not 100% up to date:

– In a 2014 interview with Rolling Stone, Taylor said her soon-to-be-released track "Bad Blood" was inspired by a fellow female artist who "tried to sabotage an entire arena tour".

– Fans immediately began their detective work, and found that, in 2013, several of Taylor's dancers had quit her Red Tour in favour of Katy's Prismatic Tour.

– The day after the Rolling Stone interview was published, Katy posted the iconic tweet: "Watch out for the Regina George in sheep's clothing."

– Taylor released the "Bad Blood" music video in 2015. Over two years later, Katy released the music video for her song "Swish Swish", which seemed to poke fun at Taylor.

Back in May, Katy told James Corden that she was done with all the BS and just wanted it to be over (same). But then she released the "Swish Swish" video.

And THEN, in an interview on the Thrive Global Podcast, she told Arianna Huffington that she was "ready to let it go".

I forgive her and I’m sorry for anything I ever did, and I hope the same from her … I love her, and I want the best for her. And I think she’s a fantastic songwriter. Maybe I don’t agree with everything she does and she doesn’t agree with everything I do, but I just really, truly want to come together in a place of love and forgiveness and understanding and compassion.

And, guys, it seems like the feud may truly be over once and for all. Because eagle-eyed fans think they may have spotted Katy on the set of Taylor's new music video.

1. A couple of days ago, Taylor was papped filming a music video in Miami. And who else do we know for a fact was in Miami at the time? Oh, just one Miss Katy Perry.

"Hiya. I'm writing you from Miami, prepping my last Witness: The Tour show of 2017," Katy wrote in an Instagram post. "I'm reflecting on a year that has redefined what winning means to me."

2. The music video Taylor was filming was for her song "End Game", featuring Future and Ed Sheeran. And because nothing Taylor does is coincidental, it's important to listen to the lyrics.

Not only does Taylor literally sing about burying hatchets, but one of the song's main refrains includes the lyrics: "You heard about me / I got some big enemies / big reputation, big reputation / you and me would be a big conversation."There's no denying that Katy is one of Taylor's biggest public ~enemies~, and their reconciliation would definitely make for a "big conversation".

3. Seeing as this feud has always been exacerbated by music videos, it seems fitting that it would end with one.

Everyone freaked out when Taylor released the music video for "Bad Blood", which featured her literally fighting an antagonist who looked more than a little bit like Katy. And Katy wasn't too happy with it either. She told James Corden: "It was a full shutdown, and then she writes a song about me. I'm like, 'OK, cool, cool, cool, that's how you want to deal with it?'"

But then Katy released her video for "Swish Swish", which appeared to be a thinly veiled dig at Taylor. It involved Katy and a bunch of famous friends battling it out on teams called the Sheep and the Tigers. Sound familiar?

4. And fans think Katy's cameo will involve playing one of Taylor's backing dancers in the video – which would also be fitting.

The video footage from TMZ and other photos from set appear to show a woman who looks remarkably like Katy dancing backup for Taylor on a yacht, and as we all know, this whole feud started because Katy ~stole~ some of Taylor's backing dancers. So, if Katy appeared as one of Taylor's dancers in the video, it would have all come full circle.

Of course, there are other theories. Some fans think Katy was just visiting the set because the two are secretly BFFs. Some think it was a Katy lookalike. And some think this is all just a delusion...which is fair enough, tbh.

Either Katy’s in the End Game video or what if it’s someone who looks like Katy to show that they’re still enemies… https://t.co/1yPInyc2y5

Is the end game mv where Katy and Taylor announce that the entire feud thing was fake and just for promotion

Either way, I think we can all agree on one thing: If this is the end of the feud, at least one good thing will have come out of 2017.
