VMA producer says Taylor Swift, Katy Perry duet 'not happening'

They are probably never ever ever getting on stage together.

The producer behind this year’s VMAs is shutting down rumors circulating that Katy Perry and Taylor Swift will end their long running feud with a duet at the award ceremony this Sunday, Entertainment Tonight reports.

“That’s not happening as far as [I KNOW],” producer Garrett English said. “I’ve certainly seen all the rumors flying around, but that’s not happening.”

Katy Perry and Taylor Swift might not be squashing their feud any time soon.

“Obviously she has a great heritage with our show, our brand, our audience. So, it’s a very easy conclusion for us,” English said.

Katy Perry will host the 2017 “MTV Video Music Awards” live in Inglewood, Calif., on Sunday, Aug. 27 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT.

As for Swift, it is unclear if she will make a surprise appearance at the awards. On Wednesday, she dropped news of a new album due out in November and said she would be releasing a track from it on Thursday night.

English said there was nothing in the works with the “Bad Blood” singer as of now — or he was really good at keeping it under wraps during his ET interview.

“There’s nothing happening right now,” he said. “But wouldn’t that be great! But no.”

People are going nuts because Taylor Swift is dropping new music

The pair’s feud began in 2013 after backup dancers on Swift’s tour left to join Perry on the road.

In July, Perry insisted that the feud was over and she loved Swift, but this week she said that she hasn’t heard anything from Swift about putting things to rest.

On the day Perry’s new album “Witness” dropped, Swift decided to put up all her music on streaming services — seeming to be an attempt to one-up the “Roar” singer.
