As OK! readers know, Taylor, 29, and Katy, 34, were friends for years until they allegedly had a falling out over backup dancers. In an interview with Rolling Stones, Taylor said her 2014 hit “Bad Blood” was about a female artist who tried to “sabotage an entire tour.”

"It was just fully sincere and fully like we realized we've grown up, we've grown enough to realize the fact that us feeling pitted against each other for so long really did add to whatever tension we were feeling in our friendship...it's a really positive thing for both of us in our lives," she added.
