Can Taylor Swift only hold one grudge at a time?
Amid reports that the singer is not happy with how Kanye West has dragged her name into a “misogynistic” rap song, word has it that Katy Perry is extending and olive branch and reaching out to the “Wildest Dreams” crooner.
In a New York Times interview published on the same day West had reignited his feud with Swift, Perry talks about pre-Grammys party dedicated to artists. Dubbed “An Evening to Celebrate the Creators,” the black-tie affair is sponsored by Spotify and aims to connect artists together in an intimate setting. With only a guest list of 250 people, the party includes performances by Sia, Jack Garratt, and a “14-piece orchestra [playing] all of the modern Top 40 songs.”
The publication also notes thatAdele and Swift, who withheld their music from Spotify, have been invited to attend.
“It’s just up to their schedules,” Perry says.
“You have to be a creator — it’s artists, producers and songwriters,” she continues about the bash’s ultra-exclusive guest list. “It’sKacey Musgraves, Karen O, Miguel, Tove Lo, Shirley Manson, Max Martin. Then up-and-coming songwriters like Blood Pop and Bonnie McKee all under the same roof as Diane Warren. In some ways, I’m trying to start the Met Ball of music.”
It seems like the star-studded soirée will be the perfect place for Perry an Swift to sort out their differences. After all, the “Roar” songstress insists that publicists, managers, and reporters are not allowed to attend.
“There’s a press opportunity in the front, like a red carpet, but if you want to be more low-key you can arrive via garage,” she says. “I’m trying to keep it as pure as possible because in the eight years that I’ve been going to these things, I am just always so exhausted.”
Maybe the era of “Bad Blood” is finally over.
