    Katy Perry Opened Up About Making Amends With Taylor Swift, And I'm Applauding Her

    "It was really unfortunate."

    By now, you already know Katy Perry and Taylor Swift no longer have bad blood.

    It all started last year when Katy extended a literal olive branch to Taylor while she was on tour to support her Reputation album.

    The "Lover" singer accepted and the two began hinting at their repaired friendship on social media.

    Then, in June, Katy appeared in the music video for Taylor's song, "You Need to Calm Down," and all was well again in the pop world.

    Taylor also baked cookies for the "Bon Appétit" singer, who called her a "good baker," so you know it's real.

    Anyway, Katy recently stopped by The Ellen Show and revealed new details about her decision to make amends.

    "We have such big groups of people that like to follow us and they started turning against each other a little bit too. And it was really unfortunate," she shared.

    "I’m all about redemption and forgiveness, and for setting an example for those younger people that it could be cool to ask for forgiveness and to confront someone you may have an issue with or problem with and to talk it out," she added.

    Points were made. I stan this growth and maturity from both artists, TBH.
