Katy Perry releases new album the very same day as Taylor Swift returns to streaming services

The same night Katy Perry’s brand new album was released her rival, Taylor Swift, has made a comeback to all streaming services such as Spotify.

An Instagram message on the site TaylorNation wrote, “In celebration of 1989 selling over 10 million albums worldwide and the RIAA’s 100 million song certification announcement, Taylor wants to thank her fans by making her entire back catalogue available to all streaming services tonight at midnight,”

Due to it being the same day Katy Perry released her new album “Witness”, her fans were quick to take to Twitter and label Swift as “petty”.

This backlash comes after Katy Perry explained why she and Taylor Swift fell out during her chat with James Corden on his American television show, ‘The Late Late Show’.

When asked in more recent interviews why she chose to address their issues on the programme Katy replied, “Well, James Corden makes me and the whole world feel very safe. No one has asked me about my side of the story, and there are three sides of every story: one, two and the truth.”

According to Katy the argument started over a confusion with regards to backing dancers.

Following her explanation, the singer then mentioned the time that Taylor accused Kanye West and Kim Kardashian of “character assassination” last year.

She said: “I’m not Buddha – things irritate me. I wish that I could turn the other cheek every single time, but I’m also not a pushover, you know? Especially when someone tries to assassinate my character with little girls. That’s so messed up!”

However, fans on social media are finding it hard to believe that it’s just a coincidence that Taylor’s music is available to stream the very same day as Katy’s album release.

In a statement Spotify said: “We can confirm that Taylor Swift’s entire back catalogue is now available on Spotify for her millions of fans to enjoy.
