Scoop: Is Katy Perry preparing for a ‘Swift’ response?

Another shot has been fired in the long-simmering feud between Katy Perry and Taylor Swift, according to E! News.

Perry was reportedly tweeting with fans on Saturday when one of them asked if she would ever collaborate with Taylor Swift, to which Perry replied, “if she says sorry, sure.”

The feud reportedly goes back a few years when Swift accused Perry of trying to steal her tour dancers, E! News reports.

Apparently there’s been some back and forth between the two pop stars since then, and at one point, got Swift’s ex Calvin Harris involved after they broke up. According to E!, Swift said she co-wrote a song of his that he performed with Rihanna.

At the time, Harris tweeted, “I know you’re off tour and you need someone new to try and bury like Katy [Perry] ETC but I’m not that guy …”

Perry followed up with a tweet featuring a Hillary Clinton GIF that seemed to say, “I told you so.”

We’ll see how “swiftly” Swift apologizes to get that collaboration going.

According to TMZ, Alexis passed while she was listening to David Bowie’s “Starman.” She was reportedly battling a serious illness.

Brother Richmond Arquette confirmed that she had passed in a Facebook post Sunday morning:

“Our brother Robert, who became our brother Alexis, who became our sister Alexis, passed this morning September 11 at 12:32 a.m. He was surrounded by all of his brothers and sisters, and one of his nieces and several other loved ones.
