The pop star shared a video on her Instagram stories of a package that included a olive branch - the literally sign of a peace offering - and a note.
"This means so much to me", she added, captioning the video, "Thank you Katy". Enclosed along with the note was an actual olive branch, officially ending the pop duo's long-simmering rift.

The Roar singer sent Swift an actual olive branch ahead of her Reputation Stadium Tour opening show in Arizona on Tuesday, making it clear she wanted to be friends with her rival after they reportedly fell out when Katy nabbed some of Swift's dancers for a string of live dates.
