Why Katy Perry fi­nally ended her years-long

feud with Tay­lor Swift.

They’ve gone from bad blood back to mad love! Af­ter six years of feud­ing, pop princesses Katy Perry and Tay­lor Swift fi­nally buried the hatchet when Katy, 33, sent Tay­lor, 28, a lit­eral olive branch — and an apol­ogy note — at the start of Tay­lor’s Rep­u­ta­tion Sta­dium Tour . The change of heart might seem out of the blue, but “Katy has re­ally ma­tured over the past year,” an in­sider ex­plains. “She’s all about girl power. She ac­cepts full re­spon­si­bil­ity for any mis­com­mu­nica- tion be­tween them and would rather put her en­ergy into be­ing friends than en­e­mies.” The ill will be­gan when Katy hired dancers away from Tay­lor, which the “Shake It Off” singer saw as a per­sonal at­tack. She retaliated with one of her patented re­venge songs, “Bad Blood.” Af­ter all this time, “Tay­lor was thrilled to re­ceive an apol­ogy” from her long­time ri­val, the in­sider says. “The pos­i­tive thoughts in the note re­ally made her day!” Tay­lor liked it so much, she shared it with the world in an Instagram story — which wasn’t ex­actly what Katy was ex­pect­ing. “Katy was slightly taken aback when she saw that Tay­lor posted the hand­writ­ten let­ter on so­cial me­dia,” the in­sider says. But the “Fire­work” singer isn’t about to start a new feud. “She knows how strate­gic Tay­lor is about gen­er­at­ing pub­lic­ity for her­self — she gets it,” the in­sider notes. “Right now, Katy fully sup­ports Tay­lor and hopes her tour will be a huge suc­cess.”

In Katy’s note to Tay­lor (inset be­low), she called her “old friend” and said she was “deeply sorry” and wanted to “clear the air.”
