She denied it and added: "You do something, there's going to be a reaction, and trust me daddy, there's going to be a reaction". One thing is definitely clear though, they will never stop trashing each other.

For anyone who needs a refresher on the feud that has shaped the last few years, Taylor and Katy fell out over a disagreement about back-up dancers, and their spat has spiraled into social-media shade, sly lyrics, and some all round toxic bad blood.

White's audition for "American Idol" aired on Sunday - and he wowed judges Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan as he belted verses of James Brown's, "It's a Man's Man's Man's World".

The hopeful said: "I'm sorry for this Katy - Taylor Swift", acknowledging the two stars' feud. Perry has gone back and forth saying "Swish Swish" is about Swift and if she is over their bad blood or not.

"Oh, you don't have to be sorry at all". This isn't the first time that Katy has spoken about her support of Taylor's songwriting, and it's possible that she genuinely meant what she said.

Katy Perry didn't miss a beat, although her tongue got a little tied as she talked.

One of the most memorable auditions so far on American Idol's reboot season was from singer-songwriter Effie Passero, who performed her original song "Troubled Mind" for the judges.

While Taylor didn't name her rival, many fans think she is referring to Katy Perry in both the interview and in the song.

It makes no sense to look for what is right or wrong but it is vital to know if the gesture was welcomed or had been forced upon someone because it is a form of sexual assault and if we're supposed to move towards equality we need to look at both sides of the gender.
