Taylor Swift and Katy Perry have finally ended their long-standing feud in a joyful manner. Their feud, which started in 2014 over a disagreement about backup dancers, led to Taylor’s song “Bad Blood.” However, in the “You Need to Calm Down” music video released on June 17, the two celebrities embraced each other dressed as burger and fries, bringing an end to the shady era between them. The video was colorful and bright, and the two pop stars looked super fun in their fast-food outfits, slowly approaching each other before hugging and slow dancing. Interestingly, Katy was spotted earlier this year at the Met Gala wearing a burger costume, showing that it has become her mood for the year.
The videographer, who is in her late twenties, aimed to promote the message that it’s no fun to worry and fixate on other people. Numerous famous personalities were showcased in the video, including the Queer Eye stars, Ryan Reynolds, Ellen DeGeneres, and Laverne Cox. Fans were surprised when Taylor urged them to support and follow everyone featured in the clip, including the “Dark Horse” songstress.
The viewers on YouTube were ecstatic about Taylor Swift tagging Katy Perry and expressed their excitement in the comments section. The two singers have been hinting at a reunion for some time now and even shared cookies with each other that had “Peace at Last” written on them. In addition, Taylor added Katy’s song “Never Really Over” to her playlist. The video had an underlying message of supporting the LGBTQ+ community and promoted signing a petition on Change.org for the Equality Act. All in all, Taylor’s latest song is fantastic and backs a significant cause. Let’s keep spreading positivity, Taylor and Katy!
