Katy Perry changed her 'Swish Swish' lyrics after saying she wants to end the Taylor Swift feud
Over the past several weeks, it seemed like Katy Perry couldn't get through an interview promoting her album Witness without talking about her beef with Taylor Swift.
Here's a recap:
May 19: "I think it's a great anthem for people to use whenever someone's trying to hold you down or bully you. ... ‘Swish Swish' represents a liberation from all the negative that doesn't serve you," she said on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon about her latest diss track.
May 22: "There's a situation," Perry said while in James Corden's Carpool Karaoke. "Honestly, it's really like she started it, and it's time for her to finish it." Then added, "What I want to say is that I'm ready for that BS to be done. Now, there is the law of cause and effect. You do something, there's going to be a reaction, and trust me, daddy, there's going to be a reaction. It's all about karma, right? I think personally that women together, not divided -- and none of this petty bullshit -- women together will heal the world."
May 23: " I tried to do the right thing, the good thing, and, you know, she shut me down and wrote a song," she said on SiriusXM.
June 9: "I wish that I could turn the other cheek every single time, but I'm also not a pushover, you know?" she told NME. "Especially when someone tries to assassinate my character with little girls. That's so messed up!"
But after a Swift retaliation (Taylor returned her entire discography to Spotify the same day as Perry's album release), it looks like Perry is now ready to bury the hatchet. Finally.
During a marathon live stream, Perry said she was ready to end the feud, saying, "I forgive her, and I'm sorry for anything I ever did, and I hope the same from her."
Perry then performed her Swish Swish track, but switched up the lyrics from "Don't you come for me," to "God bless you on your journey, oh baby girl."
Doesn't quite have the same ring to it.
