He’s got himself a new role! Orlando Bloom, 39, is encouraging Katy Perry to offer Taylor Swift an olive branch, after the ‘Rise’ singer tweeted that she would be open to collaborating with the ‘Black Space,’ beauty, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned.
Katy, 31, and Taylor, 26, used to be bosom buddies but then things went waaaay south. Both sexy songstresses dated John Mayer, 38, which ignited some competition, but things got really ugly when three of Katy’s ‘California Dreams’ world tour dancers were offered a place on Taylor’s 2012 world tour.
One dancer claimed that during the tour with Taylor, Katy’s people reached out to see if he and two other dancers would perform on the world tour for Katy’s 2013 album, Prism, – the only caveat being that they would have to bail on Swift’s tour. All three agreed and left Swift in the lurch.
Then there was ‘Bad Blood,’ Taylor’s thinly veiled melodic attack on Perry, the video for which featured an army of the most gorgeous faces in pop, fashion, and film.
But enter pacifist pirate Orlando Bloom, 39, Katy’s boyfriend of six months. The Buddhist babe just wants everyone to get along and has offered to his peacemaking services to the battling beauties.
“He thinks Katy could only gain from a reconciliation with Taylor,” a source tells Hollywoodlife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Their fans would go wild, and if they collaborated, it would break every record in history! But his main interest is Katy’s peace of mind and just doing the right thing.” That sounds about right, but we’re not done yet!
The source continues, “He just thinks it’s toxic for Katy to have this long standing feud. He’s a Buddhist and has been pushing for her to make peace since they’ve been a couple, and since he’s pals with Selena Gomez, he’s offered to kind of re-introduce Katy and Taylor on better terms.”
HollywoodLifers, what do you think? Is it time these seething sirens kissed and made up, or should the feud rage on until they’re both too old to remember why they’re even fighting?
