With a new feud on the horizon, it might be time for Taylor and Katy to hand up their gloves and make nice. Katy Perry revealed to the New York Times yesterday that she has invited Taylor Swift to her pre-Grammys party - perhaps in an effort to mend fences. The two have been at odds for a few years after being friendly.

"You have to be a creator — it’s artists, producers and songwriters," Perry, 31, told the paper of those she invited to the party. "And it’s a mixture of new and familiar artists, a combination of the past two years’ Grammy nominees and also [acts] from the Spotify Discover playlist. It’s Kacey Musgraves, Karen O, Miguel, Tove Lo, Shirley Manson, Max Martin. Then up-and-coming songwriters like Blood Pop and Bonnie McKee all under the same roof as Diane Warren. In some ways, I’m trying to start the Met Ball of music."
There's a catch: publicists, journalists, and managers are not invited.
Perry confirmed that among the guests were Adele and Taylor Swift, both of whom have withheld their music from Spotify. When asked about whether or not they would attend, Perry noted that, "It's just up to their schedules."
The event will be held at Cicada in downtown L.A. this Saturday.
"They are not creators. They’re important to the creation, but it’s only artists, producers and songwriters," the "Fireworks" singer explained. "There’s a press opportunity in the front, like a red carpet, but if you want to be more low-key you can arrive via garage. I’m trying to keep it as pure as possible because in the eight years that I’ve been going to these things, I am just always so exhausted."
This is all a big move, especially after the fight Swift and Perry have had - to the extent that Taylor wrote her hit "Bad Blood" about it all.
"For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not," Swift told Rolling Stone at the time. "She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, 'Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?'"
Perry won't be rooting for Swift at the awards, however.

"The Weeknd has come a long way, especially since the very beginning when he put out all those records himself," Perry said of the "Can't Feel My Face" crooner, 25, who is up for seven Grammys for material from his album Beauty Behind The Madness. "He took a chance and went a little bit more pop. To see that growth happen so quickly and knowing his evolution is a pretty cool story."
