So how exactly did Taylor convince Katy to join the star-studded cast of the second music video off her seventh studio album, Lover?

She texted her of course.

The “ME!” singer detailed their conversation in a new interview with a UK radio station stating the two have been on good terms for quite some time but never wanted to publicly say so. But when Taylor thought of the video idea, she knew she had to ask her former enemy to star in it.

“[The text] was a long synopsis of the entire video and I didn’t think of the burger and fries costume until she wore the burger to the Met Gala afterparty and I was like, ‘that is amazing,'” Taylor explained. “I was thinking we’re going to have this moment in the video and if it’s too on the nose, if it’s too us wearing normal clothes and hugging, it won’t really fit into this video… so I was like, ‘can we do a burger and fries as a metaphor for two people who belong together and people who are a perfect pair?’ and she thought it was really funny — so we did it!”

Elsewhere in the interview, Taylor revealed when they finally saw each other again after so long, all the negativity just melted away and they remembered how much they had in common. “When we saw each other it was just very clear to both of us that everything was different, that we had grown up, that we had grown past allowing ourselves to be pitted against each other. It was really, really clear that we remembered how much we had in common,” she said.
