Well it seems like there’s no ‘Bad Blood’ between Selena Gomez and Katy Perry! Selena set the record straight in a June 30 interview — there’s nothing but good vibes between her and Katy. (Who’s going to tell Taylor?!)
Selena Gomez, 22, starred in bestie Taylor Swift‘s, 25, epic music video for “Bad Blood,” which is allegedly about Tay’s frenemy Katy Perry, 30. And it’s no secret that Selena’s character, Arsyn, looks just a teensy-tiny bit like Katy. Okay, A LOT like her! But Selena assured her fans during a June 30 interview that everything is cool between her and Katy! Isn’t that a relief?
Selena called in to the New Zealand radio show The Edge Afternoons on Tuesday, June 30 and participated in a fun game called “Tabloid True or False.” — she’s definitely an ace at that! Host Sharyn didn’t waste any time getting to the dirty details and trying to confirm a juicy rumor.
“Is it true that you called Katy Perry after the ‘Bad Blood’ video just to make sure she knew that you were acting and you weren’t being mean to her?” she asked. Selena quickly replied in the negative, saying that everything was already A-OK between her and the “Firework” singer. Whew!
“That’s false, I love Katy. I just talked to her,” Selena said. “She’s amazing. But I didn’t talk about that, but i just talked to her. She’s awesome.” Do you think Taylor knows about Selena and Katy’s chat? After months of feuding with Katy (and even a rumored response video to “Bad Blood” on Katy’s part called “1984,” Ha!), it must sting just a little knowing that one of your closest friends is still in touch with one of your biggest foes.
Maybe being friends with Selena has rubbed off on Katy. She wants to end her feud with Taylor within the public eye, and contain her disses within her music, according to a source who spoke to HollywoodLife. Baby steps! “A diss track is still planned and then that will be it. They’ll never be friends but Katy doesn’t want this fued to define her career. She’ll do the song and move on,” the source said. You do you, Katy!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Selena should still be talking to Katy? Are you happy that they’re still friends? Tell us in the comments and be sure to take our poll!
