Katy Perry and Taylor Swift have proven their epic feud is a thing of the past when they cuddled up for a selfie in Australia on Friday night after the singer’s concert at Sydney’s Accor Stadium.
Katy, 39, showed her support for her former foe, alongside Rita Ora and her husband, Taika Waititi, and couldn’t wait to pay tribute to her “old friend” as she shared several snaps and videos on Instagram, including a super Sweet closeup of them together backstage.
The two pop stars looked as glamorous as ever as Taylor, 34, pressed her cheek against Katy’s face and smiled from ear to ear before her spectacular performance, in which she showed off her slender figure in a stunning sequin bodysuit. . .
Mum-of-one Katy, who looked stylish in a pair of wide-leg striped pants and a matching cropped vest, captioned the social media post: “Gotta see an old friend shine tonight” and assured fans that his friendship with the Shake It Off hitmaker is back on track.

It’s no secret that Katy and Taylor had a pretty nasty fight, and the latter even wrote her 2015 song Bad Blood about their feud, which began when Katy apparently tried to hire a group of Taylor’s backup dancers and ‘sabotage an entire sand tour’. ‘
However, it seems that Katy is now a fan of the song, as she filmed a video of Taylor performing the song and at one point turned the camera on herself as she sang some of the lyrics including: “Now we got problems and we don’t “I don’t think we can resolve them, you cut yourself too deep and honey, now we have bad blood.”
Katy, who wore her long dark hair down and straight and completed her look with plenty of silver jewelry, watched Taylor’s performance from a VIP tent alongside Rita, 33, and her filmmaker husband, Taika, 48.

Rita captioned her Instagram post: ‘It’s fair to say Sydney always delivers, or should we say our TayTay @taylorswift always delivers!’ Thanks for having us! Seeing my KP @katyperry made my heart count on many queens! (sic).’
Katy was quick to comment on the post and simply wrote: ‘ily’ which is short for ‘I love you’, while her own fans couldn’t believe she posted a video of her singing while Taylor performed Bad Blood.

A third person posted: “It’s not like you post grudges that’s so iconic,” while a fourth fan pleaded: “WE NEED A TAYLOR SWIFT AND KATY PERRY COLLABORATION PLEASE.”
The couple first fell out a decade ago, and TMZ reported that the feud between the artists began when three of Taylor’s dancers quit to join Katy’s Prismatic World Tour.
Taylor released the single Bad Blood and added fuel to the fire, in a now infamous interview with Rolling Stone, when she admitted that the song was about music and a “direct enemy.”
To add fuel to the fire, in a now infamous interview with Rolling Stone, Taylor admits that the song was about a musician and an “absolute enemy.”
She told the publication: ‘For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not.
“She would come up to me at awards shows, say something and walk away, and I would think, ‘Are we friends or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?'”
“Then last year the other star crossed the line. She did something so horrible that I was like, “Oh, we’re just enemies.” And she wasn’t even about a boy!

After Taylor’s interview was published, Katy tweeted an alleged nod in Taylor’s direction, writing, “Beware Regina George in Sheep’s Clothing,” referring to Rachel McAdams’ catty character on Mean Girls.
Then in May 2017, Katy seemingly retaliated against Taylor’s song Bad Blood with her own single Swish Swish, which was also reportedly about their feud.
However, a year later, Katy approached her former friend with an olive branch and a handwritten note that began: “Hello old friend, I’m reflecting on our miscommunications and feelings between us.”
