The 29-year-old took to Tumblr on Saturday to reply to one fan's speculation about the rumoured scene between Taylor and her former enemy Katy.

In the video, Perry and Swift reunite amid a food fight-Swift is dressed as a box of French fries and Perry dons a hamburger costume.

The two superstars put their differences aside by hugging it out at the end of Swift's video for her latest single, "You Need To Calm Down".

'This meal is BEEF-free, ' Katy captioned her post.

See more on Swift in the video below.

The first single released on Lover was "Me!" performed with Brendon Urie from Panic! at the Disco.

Right after the trade, New York Times' writer Mark Stein reported that " Kemba Walker will be a top target in free agency". Still, it's not as though Griffin couldn't have another deal in principle in place by Thursday for that pick.

Some fans caught wind of Swift and Perry's plan before the "You Need To Calm Down" video dropped. Earlier this month, Taylor made headlines when she wrote an open letter to a Senator in her home state of Tennessee and asked him to support the Equality Act. The paradisaical trailer park features Laverne Cox and Hayley Kiyoko as neighbors, Adam Rippon serving sno-cones, a Fab Five tea party, and Billy Porter sashaying in a wig and caftan.

Extreme celeb presence aside, the video ended with a message: "Let's show our pride by demanding that, on a national level, our laws truly treat all of our citizens equally." .

The song is a pro-LGBTQ+ anthem that features lyrics like "You are somebody that we don't know / But you're comin' at my friends like a missile / Why are you mad when you could be GLAAD?".

The "You Need to Calm Down" video comes days after Swifties went insane for the song, which was released on Thursday night and spoke out against social media haters. The singer created a petition to support the legislation, which would extend civil rights protections to sexual orientation and gender identity.

On Friday, she took to the stage at the Stonewall Inn in New York City for a surprise performance with Jesse Tyler Ferguson.
