Katy Perry and Taylor Swift together on the same track? The mega-collaboration could happen, but only on one condition from Perry: that the 1989 singer apologizes to her.
On Saturday (Sept. 10), a fan tweeted Perry asking if she would collaborate with Swift. “If she says sorry, sure!” Perry responded. Swift hadn’t responded to Perry’s tweet as of publication, but every can agree that a collaboration between the two stars would be colossal.

The feud between the two pop stars dates back to 2014 when Swift hinted in Rolling Stone that her 1989 song “Bad Blood” was about a fellow singer.
“She did something so horrible,” Swift said. “I was like, ‘Oh, we’re just straight-up enemies.’ And it wasn’t even about a guy! 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.”
The Internet quickly decided said anonymous artist was Perry, because some of Swift’s dancers left her tour to go on Perry’s trek and they’ve both dated John Mayer.
Shortly after the RS interview went live, Perry tweeted, “Watch out for the Regina George in sheep’s clothing.” Later, in a 2015 interview with Billboard, she said, “If somebody is trying to defame my character, you’re going to hear about it.”
Most recently, in July, Perry tweeted a GIF of Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton after her name was brought up in Calvin Harris’ Twitter spree about his ex, Swift.
After a rep for Swift confirmed she had a hand in writing Harris’ Rihanna collaboration “This Is What You Came For,” the DJ and producer complimented Swift for being an “amazing lyric writer” but tweeted that it was “hurtful” the way the breakup news was leaked. He also so far as to compare the move to Swift trying to “bury [him] like Katy,” referencing the alleged feud between the two pop stars.
Perry didn’t directly commented on Harris’ tweet, but the GIF did say a thousand words.
