A beef-free happy meal!

Taylor Swift and Katy Perry officially ended their feud in Swift's "You Need to Calm Down" music video , which premiered first thing on Monday morning.

At the end of the star-studded video, which featured cameos from a slew of other stars, Perry and Swift lock eyes while wearing hamburger and french fries costumes, respectively, during a dance party (Perry famously wore the hamburger outfit to a Met Gala after-party back in May).

Both Swift and Perry took to Instagram after the video's premiere to share a photo of their happy embrace.

"This meal is BEEF-free #MeatFreeMonday," Perry captioned her photo, while Swift simply wrote, "A happy meal."


The pair dances together and embraces in the music video the second single off of Swift's upcoming seventh studio album, which serves as the official peace treaty between the two pop stars, who publicly feuded for years. Fans who were plugged into Perry and Swift's every move knew that there was no more ill-will between them, as Perry sent a literal olive branch to Swift in the mail while she was on her Reputation Stadium Tour, and Swift returned the favor last week by sending Perry a plate of cookies that said, "Peace at last."

Their infamous beef reportedly started when Perry hired key dancers off of one of Swift's tours. Perry once called Swift "Regina George in sheep's clothing," while Swift wrote "Bad Blood" about their feud.

The moment of unity in the "You Need to Calm Down" clip echoes some of the song's lyrics calling for fans to stop pitting female pop stars against one another in the hopes of fueling feuds between them.

"We see you over the on the internet comparing all the girls who are killing," Swift sings. "But we figured you out: We all know now, we all got crowns. You need to calm down."

Also appearing in the "You Need to Calm Down" music video are a slew of other mostly LGBTQ celebrities including the "Queer Eye" cast, Ellen DeGeneres, RuPaul, Laverne Cox, Adam Lambert, Adam Rippon, Todrick Hall, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his husband, Justin Mikita and more.
