Fans think Taylor Swift and Katy Perry are collaborating on a new song — here’s why

Since Taylor Swift and Katy Perry squashed their “bad blood,” fans of both have been rooting for a collaboration between the two singers.

Following a series of subtle similarities in both of their social media posts, those fans think they might have actually manifested a new song — or at least a joint project.

Here are the potential clues Twitter users have pointed out so far:


Perry announced that her next single, which is set to debut on May 15, will be called “Daisies.

Less than two hours later, Swift shared a photo of herself lounging at home, wearing a sweater with — wait for it — daisies on it.


A few hours after that, the “American Idol” Twitter account reacted to the news of judge Perry’s new music.

“We can’t wait to play this like 1,989 times in a row,” the account wrote.

Fans noted that the extremely specific number “1,989” simply must be a reference to Swift’s “1989” album, which was named after her birth year.

“I don’t wanna be a clown but ma’am,” one user wrote.

“It’s hard to ignore at this point,” another said.

‘Sticks and stones’

Perry also shared a photo of daisy shoes to Instagram.

“Sticks and stones may break your bones, but Daisies are the friendliest flower,” her caption said.

The popular phrase is potentially a reference to Swift’s song “You Need to Calm Down,” which features the lyric, “Snakes and stones never broke my bones.”

Perry and Swift famously reunited for the song’s music video, patching up a rocky history with a sweet embrace.

Though Swift famously loves to leave her fans clues about new music, it’s possible these guesses are misguided — but we’ll see for sure on May 15.
