It’s safe to say Taylor Swift isn’t planning on making amends with Katy Perry any time soon. The songstress opened up to Vanity Fair about being betrayed by her former friend and why she doesn’t plan on inviting Katy back into her life.
Taylor Swift, 25, and Katy Perry, 30, are never, ever, ever getting back together — as friends, that is! The popstar got candid in her recent interview with Vanity Fair and talked about being deceived by people she thought were her friends in the past. Although the singer doesn’t exactly name Katy, she gives a very revealing reason why certain people aren’t in her life anymore.

By now, many know about the “Bad Blood” between Taylor and Katy, all thanks to Tay’s hit song. Although the exact reason to their falling out has yet to come out, the singer’s candid interview with Vanity Fair is pretty telling. “I’ve trusted people before in friendships or relationships and have felt betrayed,” Taylor said in her interview. “If you betray your friend, if you will talk about them badly behind their back, if you will try to humiliate them or talk down to them, I have no interest in having a person like that in my life.” The 25-year-old has always been a big believer in surrounding yourself with people who build you up, so it’s not surprising this was the reason why she dropped Katy from her friends list.
The 25-year-old did allude to some cattiness from Katy’s end in her Rolling Stone magazine interview that came out in September 2014. Before her hit 1989 album even came out, Taylor revealed the angriest song on the record was “Bad Blood.” She opened up about her relationship with Katy from the beginning, not knowing if they were friends or not, until something terrible happened. “She did something so horrible,” Taylor said. “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.” That whole event definitely ties in with her current answer about being betrayed in Vanity Fair.
Katy Calls Out Taylor Amidst Her Twitter Feud With Nicki Minaj
Taylor has no desire to be Katy’s friend again and the feeling is mutual. When the 25-year-old’s Twitter controversy with Nicki Minaj, 32, blew up, Katy had no problem calling out Taylor for thinking Nicki was bashing Tay for her MTV VMA nomination. “Finding it ironic to parade the pit women against other women argument about as one unmeasurably capitalizes on the take down of a woman…” the 30-year-old tweeted. Wow.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Will Taylor and Katy ever make up and become friends again?
