No More Bad Blood: Taylor Swift and Katy Perry Make Peace
Taylor Swift has just released her latest song “You Need to Calm Down” straight from her “Lover” album. And boy… the music video is such an eye candy. If you’re an LGBTQ+, a feminist, a fashionista, and a die-hard fan—a Swifty or a Katycat, then you know that the whole music video is swamped with a lot of easter eggs.
Taylor Swift and Katy Perry, with this song, have officially ended their almost 6-year feud, which fans of both singers have been monitoring on twitter, facebook and anywhere online.
So have you seen the latest Taylor Swift’s “You Need to Calm Down”? What do you think of all the pizazz and colorful imagery in the star-studded music video that I think Taylor Swift herself had the first hand on it?
Now, let’s take a quick look at several of the setups and beautiful images that popped out in the “You Need to Calm Down” video. So Swifties, we’re gonna use our queer eye to identify them all.
The video opens with Taylor Swift waking up in her satin pink eye mask embroidered with golden “Calm Down” and lingerie. We’ll never forget those lovely 60s curled hair is so matched with her entirely made-up face. The goddess also redoes her poses in her “Blank Space” music video, where she’s in a more luxurious bed. Maybe she just loves waking up.
Those accessories and her outfits, by the way, are all available in her merch store. I supposed a lot of orders are really pouring in. Any Swifty will surely love to have those wearable marches.
Then, we see some table setups with a lot of hidden messages. Seemingly random, these objects are hinting several messages to all her fans and critics alike. We see on the first table some dice that add up to Taylor’s lucky number — 13. The second table shows six candies symbolizing Pride Month in June. So when you add the candies and the dice, you will get June 13, the day Taylor told everyone the release dates of her upcoming video and album.
A framed quote, “Mom, I am a rich man,” is on the wall. It is from Cher’s 1996 interview, where she was reliving her mother’s advice to settle down and marry a rich man. Cher replied to her mother with, “Mom, I am a rich man.” A strong statement that tells everyone that Taylor supports feminism, and it’s always all over her songs.
For instance, there are meanings in her song if you just look into it. In her song, Swift, it tells that snakes and stones never broke my bones. It means that it has a reference about the people who tried to bring Taylor Swift down by calling her names.
Competitions to be on Top
In the industry where Taylor Swift has been famous, and even on top of the Billboard, there have been some competitions. Well, this little feud has been with one of the famous celebrities, Katy Perry.

But what was the cause of Taylor Swift and Perry’s misunderstanding?
Well, it has not been a secret with us why the feud started. It may seem not a big deal, but it caused some problems. So the dispute started over a backup dancer leaving one of the Taylor Swift’s tour and move with Katy Perry.
That unethical practice has been one of the reasons why the friendship between the two has been made a cracked. Imagine the bond that has been ruined because of this.
But the dancer, Brownlie, he had a closer relationship with Katy Perry than Taylor Swift. Almost two years working with Perry has made a significant impact and create a bond like family. So joining Perry is not a thing against Swift.
However, the two celebrities have been on fire before knowing this statement. From that feud, there have been many speculations that make the situation escalated. Fans could tell it on how the two are making statements during their interviews while on tours.
