Katy Perry Praises Taylor Swift for Getting Political

Taylor Swift shocked her fans (and Washington, D.C. for that matter) when she broke her silence on politics last month, endorsing two Tennessee democrats on Instagram.

Katy Perry was one of the first to “like” the post, fueling speculation that the bad blood between the two pop megastars has finally come to an end.

And now, Perry is speaking out about Swift’s public political endorsements.

“She’s setting a great example,” Perry exclusively told Variety on Thursday night at amfAR Gala Los Angeles, where the “Firework” singer was honored with a Courage Award.

Swift and Perry’s relationship has been on a rollercoaster of sorts over the last few years. Perry began to smooth things out when she sent Swift an olive branch and a letter in May before the start of Swift’s Reputation tour.
