Kanye West might have reignited a formally squashed feud with Taylor Swift after rapping about her on his new album, but the "Shake It Off" singer could be on the verge of reconciling her reportedly troubled friendship with Katy Perry. The "Dark Horse" singer has included Taylor, along with Adele and other singers, on her guest list for an artists only pre-GRAMMYs bash in Los Angeles on Saturday (Feb. 13). The singer told the New York Times that the invitations have been sent and now "It's just up to their schedules" whether or not they can attend.
Talk that the duo had a falling out has surrounded the pop stars for years. It was frequently reported that Taylor wrote her hit song "Bad Blood" based on her relationship with Katy and the singers have seemingly tried to avoid each other at awards shows and celebrity events.
Taylor's appearance at Saturday night's party will be doubly important given that one of the primary sponsors of the soirée is Spotify music. Back in 2014, the 26-year-old caused a stir in the music industry after pulling her entire catalogue off of the popular streaming service in protest of the company's stance on artist compensation. Adele was one of many singers that followed Taylor's lead.
Katy is hosting the party prior to the 2016 GRAMMY Awards to celebrate "creators of music." Hollywood publicist and managers have not been invited because although they are "important to the creation [of music]" admits Katy, "only artists, producers and songwriters" may attend. The singer has also revealed that she will not be at this year's awards ceremony. Instead she says will enjoy the show from home while "In my pyjamas, eating matzo ball soup. No makeup, glad I'm not in a corset. Vicks cream on."
The 2016 Grammys air on Monday, Feb. 15 exclusively on City.
