AceShowbiz - Katy Perry and Taylor Swift appear to be on the verge of putting their famous feud to bed. The "Roar" singer sent Taylor an actual olive branch ahead of her "Reputation Stadium Tour" opening show in Arizona on Tuesday, May 8, making it clear she wanted to be friends with her rival after they reportedly fell out when Katy nabbed some of Swift's dancers for a string of live dates.
The "Look What You Made Me Do" hitmaker posted video of herself on Instagram showing off the gift from Katy on Tuesday, and stated, "So I just got to my dressing room and found this actual olive branch. This means so much to me."
Swift captioned the video, "Thank you Katy", along with a heart emoji. The olive branch has always symbolized peace in history.
The note Katy sent with her literal gift can also been seen in the video. It reads, "Hello old friend, I've been doing some reflecting on past miscommunications and hard feelings between us. I really want to clear the air..."
To make Katy's intentions clear, Taylor has liked a post on Tumblr about the symbolism behind the olive branch.
“Hello old friend—— Dallas Glendale (@dallas_dante) May 8, 2018
I’ve been doing some reflecting on past miscommunications and hard feelings between us. I really want to clear the air. —— I’m deeply sorry for...”
Bad Blood is OVER.

The two stars' feud began in 2014, when Swift revealed she and Katy had fallen out in a Rolling Stone tell-all, stating the beef with a fellow pop star had inspired her hit song, "Bad Blood".
"For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not," Swift said. "She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, 'Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?' "
"She did something so horrible," she continued. "I was like, 'Oh, we're just straight-up enemies.' And it wasn't even about a guy! It had to do with business. She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me."
Perry responded to Swift's magazine comments the day after the story was published online, tweeting, "Watch out for the Regina George (catty 'Mean Girls' character) in sheep's clothing..." In January 2015, Perry confirmed the tweet was pointed at Swift in a Billboard interview.
