Taylor and Katy collaborated in 2018
Despite the years-old bad blood between Taylor and Katy, the ex-rivals marked a symbolic end to their feud as they shared a hug in Swift’s 2018 “You Need to Calm Down” music video. In a 2020 interview with Howard Stern, Katy spoke about reconciling with Taylor.
“What I’m so grateful for is that we did get to make up and we made up publicly to be an example of redemption,” Katy said at the time. “It’s hard for young girls, growing up [with] cliques and high school and pettiness and all that stuff, so now we’re super friendly,” she continued. “I’ve always wanted the best for her, and we can talk about the best we want for each other.”

Taylor and Travis’ PDA filled date
At the SNL afterparty, Taylor and Travis could not get their hands off each other as they were seen making out and beaming throughout the night. “Taylor and Travis were there all night and they were so smiley, they were so happy,” a source told People. “They were so talkative. They were really fun. They talked to every single person in the room that talked to them.”
“They were super cool. Super nice, super happy,” the source continued, adding that the couple stayed at the afterparty “until after 4 a.m.” The insider also noted a particular moment when Kelce placed Swift’s hands on his shoulders and then gently positioned his own hands on her waist, bringing them face to face. “He takes both his hands and grabs her waist. They’re leaning in, they’re kissing each other,” the source dished.
