Katy Perry Reacts to Taylor Swift Releasing Her Catalog to Streaming Services

Katy Perry is sharing her thoughts about Taylor Swift releasing her music catalog to streaming services.

Many fans thought the move was a not-so-subtle diss to Katy, who released her new album Witness the same day.

Katy didn’t seem to be too bothered by the move though and continued her campaign to end her feud with Taylor.

“I don’t know, I can only do me. All I need to say to her is I love her, and God bless her on her journey. And that’s it,” Katy told Today show host Natalie Morales during her live stream.

Later that day, Katy echoed her statement during a live performance of “Swish Swish,” when she added the lyrics “God bless you on your journey, oh baby girl.”

Just days after Katy Perry announced that she wanted to put her long-standing feud with Taylor Swift to rest, she took it one step further.

Many have speculated that “Swish Swish” was written about Taylor as a response to Taylor‘s “Bad Blood” (though Katy claims it’s just about bullies in general).

Instead of singing “Don’t you come for me,” in the first verse, Katy changed it to a more positive “God bless you on your journey, oh baby girl.”

Katy Perry Apologizes for Past Cultural Appropriation

Katy Perry has owned up to cultural appropriation in the past and she has apologized to anyone she offended.

The 32-year-old singer opened up in an interview with Black Lives Matter activist Deray McKesson during her Witness World Wide live stream in partnership with YouTube this weekend.

After Katy was criticized for wearing her hair in conrows in the “This Is How We Do” video. She had a conversation with her friend Cleo Wade and asked, “Why can’t I wear my hair that way?”

“And she told me about the power in black women’s hair, and how beautiful it is, and the struggle,” Katy said. “I listened. And I heard. And I didn’t know. And I won’t ever understand some of those things because of who I am — I will never understand, but I can educate myself, and that’s what I’m trying to do along the way.”

Katy also talked about dressing as a geisha for her performance of “Unconditionally” at the 2013 American Music Awards.

“Even in my intention to appreciate Japanese culture, I did it wrong with a performance, and I didn’t know that I did it wrong until I heard people saying I did it wrong,” she said. “Sometimes that’s what it takes, is it takes someone to say — out of compassion, out of love — ‘This is where the origin is, do you understand?’ And not just like, a clapback. Because it’s hard to hear those clapbacks sometimes. And your ego just wants to turn from them. I’ve been so grateful to have great teachers and great friends who will really hold me accountable, even when I said I wasn’t a feminist because I didn’t know what that word meant.”

The 32-year-old singer had James Corden as a special guest during her Witness World Wide live stream in partnership with YouTube on Sunday (June 11) and they played a game of “Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts.”

Josh Groban is in there, I’m just kidding,” she said. “He’s amazing.”
