On Wednesday's edition of Ellen, Katy Perry revealed why she and Taylor Swift decided to end their very public feud over double-booked backup dancers. "We have such big groups of people who like to follow us," Perry said, "and so they kinda started turning against each other a little bit, too, and it was really unfortunate." Perry, who recently appeared in Swift's video for "You Need to Calm Down," added, "I'm all about redemption and forgiveness and for setting an example for those younger people, that it can be cool to ask for forgiveness, and confront someone that you may have an issue with or a problem with and talk it out." She and Swift ultimately got together to bake cookies and decided they should get along since, as Perry explains, "There's probably only 10 people in the world that have the same things in common."
