Whether Taylor Swift‘s surprise streaming reveal was a veiled attack on Katy Perry — who released new album Witness at the same time — is no longer a concern of Perry’s: she’s ready to put the pop stars’ enduring feud to bed.

Perry, who confirmed a long-running fight with Swift in May, told Ariana Huffington in a new interview on the Thrive Global podcast that she’s ready to let bygones be bygones and move on.

“I am ready to let it go,” Perry said. “I forgive her and I’m sorry for anything I ever did, and I hope the same from her. I think it’s actually like, I think it’s time. There are bigger fish to fry, and there are real problems in the world. You know what I’m saying?”

“I love her, and I want the best for her,” she added. “And I think she’s a fantastic songwriter, and I think that if we, both her and I, can be representatives of strong women that come together despite their differences, I think the whole world is going to go like, ‘Yeah, well we can do this.’ I don’t know. Maybe I don’t agree with everything she does and she doesn’t agree with everything I do, but I just really, truly want to come together in a place of love and forgiveness and understanding and compassion.”

Think the apology’s sincere, and can these two get along? Share your thoughts in the comments.
