May 8, 6: August 25, If the headlines of the past decade are any indication, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift might be the pop music feud of this generation. While the pair were once friends at least, according to their exuberant social media exchanges , in recent years, there has been much in the way of coded lyrics and veiled comments. Perry even addressed the conflict by sending Swift an olive branch this spring.
But how did these two go from mad love to bad blood? Things appear to be more than fine between burgeoning young pop princesses Swift and Perry — you might even call it a mad love affair. Let's write a song together about the subject we know best… for my new record. Things continue to be friendly and mutually flattering between the two in the months following, judging from a glowing social media exchange in which Perry made plans to catch up with Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards after the latter tweeted a photo at her.
C u the VMA's bbgirl! TS is an angel! One of the best videos of all time! Katyperry knows how to throw a birthday party! I would even go as far as to say it was party-licious.
Happy bday, pretty girl!! We sang Hot N Cold and jumped up and down a lot. I will always love you! Swift responds that she misses Perry in a now-deleted tweet , reports People. Is this kitty for real?!?! Hanging out with my new roommate, Meredith. It had to do with business. She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour.
She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me. So now I have to avoid her. When the "other" girls drop a video that breaks records and impacts culture they get that nomination.
