Katy Perry Says She Will Collaborate With Taylor Swift If She Apologizes

Perry’s older sister, Angela Hudson, gave birth to her second child on Monday afternoon with the “Rise” singer at her side.

This isn’t the first time the singer has put her baby delivering skills to work: Back in 2014, Perry tweeted that she could add “helps delivers babies in living rooms” to her resume as she aided her sister in the birth of her first child.

It’s been an eventful few days for the singer. Before becoming a new aunt, Perry shared a touching moment with a fan who survived the Orlando nightclub shooting on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. The following day, Perry stirred controversy as she responded to a tweet from a fan asking about a future Taylor Swift collaboration to which she responded “if she says sorry, sure!”

Perry is continuing to work on her fourth album, which her manager said could be released sometime this year.
