Katy Perry has opened up about her and Taylor Swift’s decision to put their differences behind them after a years-long feud.

In a new interview with Howard Stern, Perry explained that she and Swift wanted to set a positive example for their young fans.

“Gossip in life can take the elevator but the truth takes the stairs. It just takes time,” Perry said, adding that their feud was made out to be bigger than it actually was by the media.


”What I’m so grateful for is we did get to make up publicly and got to be an example of redemption for young girls,” she continued. “Now, we’re super friendly. I always wanted the best for her and now we can talk about the best we want for each other.”

The two artists publicly reconciled last June in the music video for Swift’s song You Need to Calm Down, where they wore matching hamburger and french fry costumes. After appearing in the music video together, Perry captioned an Instagram photo of the pair hugging: “This meal is BEEF-free #MeatFreeMonday.”

During the interview, Perry, who is pregnant with her first child with Orlando Bloom, also suggested that a double standard in how the media covers female fights is partly to blame for the stars’ public feud.

“You never see, like, articles about Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber in a fight or Shawn Mendes and Niall Horan in a fight,” she said. “It’s gonna take audiences and media and artists a lot of just shifting of consciousness.”

The Roar singer’s explanation comes after she previously told Ellen DeGeneres that the feud between herself and Swift started as a “misunderstanding”.

“It was actually just a misunderstanding but we have such big groups of people that like to follow us, and so they kind of started turning against each other a little bit too,” the singer said during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show last year.

According to Perry, the pair’s reconciliation began after she sent Swift a “literal olive branch” during the singer’s Reputation tour.
