No more bad blood: Taylor Swift returns to music streaming services

Share

Perry's response sounds a bit like Swift's defense following Kim Kardashian's Snapchats revealing her phone call with Kanye West over "Famous".

According to Swift's announcement, Taylor's sudden streaming backflip is "in celebration of [latest album] 1989 selling over 10 million albums worldwide" and a way for her to "thank her fans".

Katy Perry just can't stop talking about her feud with Taylor Swift these days. For years now, the music world has known about the major beef between the 1989 singer and Katy Perry, and on Friday, Swift took another shot at her arch enemy. Perry's latest album features the song "Swish Swish" in which she boasts of her success to a rival - presumably Swift - accused of bad-mouthing her. Another important event to note is that in 2014, Swift removed all of her music from Spotify, claiming that streaming devalued her music.

This is the last thing Perry needs as she launches her new album to an inarguably lukewarm reception. The downtime means she's largely been absent from the mainstream conversation outside of precisely tailored Instagram posts, most of which are screenshots of her using.

At the height of her pop powers, Perry scored a record-breaking six USA number one singles from 2010's Teenage Dream album. "I wish that I could turn the other cheek every single time, but I'm also not a pushover, you know?"

By contrast, the two singles immediately preceding Witness have so far peaked outside the United States top 40.

In a new interview with NME, Perry opens up about recently sharing her side of the story while appearing on an episode of Late Late Show host James Corden's Carpool Karaoke, and why she feels like Swift was "trying to assassinate my character" with her song, "Bad Blood".
