With Taylor Swift and Katy Perry’s feud escalating over the last 24 hours, Denis Leary thinks he has a way to put the beef to rest. According to the actor, the two pop stars just need to realize they both “suck.”

As Gossip Cop reported, Perry used her “Carpool Karaoke” appearance last month to call out Swift over their years-long war. In an interview released Thursday, she explained to NME why she suddenly commented about her longtime foe. “James Corden makes me and the whole world feel very safe. No one has asked me about my side of the story, and there are three sides of every story: one, two, and the truth,” Perry told the magazine.

She went on to say of Swift and her song “Bad Blood,” “I wish that I could turn the other cheek every single time, but I’m also not a pushover, you know? Especially when someone tries to assassinate my character with little girls. That’s so messed up!”

Hours after the quotes came out, it was announced Swift was ending her ban on non-Apple streaming services and releasing her entire back-catalog to platforms like Spotify, with which she had previously cut ties. The music would be available at midnight on Friday, the same time Perry scheduled her new album, Witness, to drop. While Swift hasn’t commented on the timing, many fans on both sides are speculating the move was calculated to distract from Perry’s album launch, which includes a weekend-long live stream event.

Now with their feud once again dominating the pop culture conversation, Leary, of all people, is offering a biting solution. He pointedly tweeted on Friday afternoon, “Easiest way to solve the Taylor Swift vs Katy Perry beef? Make them both listen to an @ArethaFranklin song and realize: holy sh*t, we suck.” The blunt comment was met with approval by his followers.

@kristileilani replied, “That should solve most issues in the music industry today…” @goodxwolves told Leary, “Thank you for your service.” @Kyra_Panchenko wrote back, “Hahahaha! Your brilliant!” And @mollyheaton responded, “Hit the nail on the head there Denis.” But something tells us Swift and Perry won’t be taking the advice.
