Inspired Katy Perry to reach out to Taylor Swift
At the time, Katy Perry mentioned her feud with Taylor Swift. She admitted that their fan groups even feud against each other. Nicks told her, “‘That’s just bulls***. You have to just walk away from that. Don’t carry that around in your mind because then they’re winning the game.'”

“As I was finishing mine, I realized how much we have in common, and maybe there are only five other people in the world that can have the same type of conversations and understand where we’re coming from and that we should celebrate our commonality and our friendship and be able to be there for each other.”
