The Katy Perry and Taylor Swift feud really blew up ever since Katy confirmed that there is a feud between the two. The reveal on James Corden's Carpool Karaoke led to further publicity of the issue, and many people, including fans, chimed in. It's also not surprising that English singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran gave his two cents about the issue.

Feud songs are no big deal, says Ed Sheeran

It seems that for the 26-year-old "Shape of You" singer, these feud songs (referring to Taylor's "Bad Blood" and Katy's reply, "Swish Swish") are really not such a big deal.

Fans know that he and Taylor Swift are friends — they even did a collaboration called "Everything Has Changed" which was featured on Swift's 2012 album, "Red." But Sheeran chose to stay silent about the issue, and he has his reasons.

“I don’t think she needs that at all,” Sheeran said when asked about defending Swift. In New York last Thursday night, while attending the Awards Gala and 48th Annual Induction for the 2017 Songwriters Hall of Fame, Sheeran told folks at People Magazine that he does not see the need to defend his friend.

This may be for a number of reasons, but one he mentioned is that he does not think feud songs are such a "hot thing." He expressed that beef songs have always had existed even before the Swift-Perry feud, and perhaps he does not find anything special about this modern catfight.

To support his point, he cited Carly Simon's famous song "You're So Vain" — which could just be the epitome of beef songs.

It was a "revenge track" originally published in 1972, and yet it was only in 2015 that Simon revealed that the second verse of the song was about her ex, Warren Beaty.

In addition to these statements, perhaps Ed Sheeran is just used to feud songs just being feud songs; expressions that need to be let out for a relieving, cathartic moment, yet never to be revisited again.

This blissful indifference is evident as Sheeran shared his experience writing songs like these.

When People Magazine asked what the response towards his feud songs was, the singer simply expressed that no one seemed to care about them.

Katy Perry has forgiven Taylor Swift

As for the actual feud between Taylor Swift and Katy Perry, it seems that the former would not need Sheeran's help in "defending" herself anyway. Apparently, Perry already forgave Swift and was ready to move on.

“I forgive her and I’m sorry for anything I ever did, and I hope the same from her,” Katy Perry said in an interview on the Thrive Global Podcast.
