After dropping a brand new single called You Need to Calm Down this week, Taylor Swift has spoken out on some fan theories about the song’s upcoming music video — namely that she and Katy Perry will be kissing in the video.
A fan reached out to Taylor on Tumblr to ask about the rumor, writing:
“Hey uhhhh @taylorswift not to question you but you do know there’s a leaked concept that you and katy dress as fries and burger and kiss. you do know that’s dumb, right? please tell me you know it’s dumb.”
Taylor then responded by shutting down the rumors using quotes from her new song, saying:
“That is ABSOLUTELY false. To be an ally is to understand the difference between advocating and baiting. Anyone trying twist this positivity into something it isn’t needs to calm down.”

Rumors may have began that Katy will be starring in the new video after Taylor and Katy publicly made amends this week after years of feuding.
Taylor will be releasing the music video for You Need to Calm Down on June 17 on ABC’s Good Morning America.
This week, Taylor also announced that You Need to Calm Down is her second single off her upcoming album Lover, which will drop August 23.
