Well all know how Taylor Swift has her girl squad, but if you’re not up to date, we’re here to tell you about her recently exposed hate squad. Bad blood, feuds, and twitter fights against Taylor Swift have been the latest in the Hollywood gossip mill.
After the release of Taylor approving Kanye’s “Famous” lyric, things started to downfall for the once heavily admired artist. But since the scandal, many fans and celebrities alike are beginning to see her true side and dismissing her PR ways.
Here’s a list of Taylor Swift feuds for the past years. It isn’t just Kim Kardashian and Katy Perry in the hate squad. People are taking sides and haters are gonna hate.
Katy Perry and Taylor Swift used to be friends. They went to parties, greeted each other in awards, and posed together for photographers. When the drama started, were not really sure if they were even frenemies. Everyone thought it was all about a guy! Swift used to date John Mayer in 2010, Perry in 2012. Swift thinks that the other party tried to sabotage her Red Tour when some of her dancers left early to perform in Katy Perry’s Prismatic tour instead.
Think that all the tension will go away with time? When Swift released her video of “Bad Blood”, it all became clear that the drama is still not over.
Minaj started a debacle of tweets on how hard it is for a non-white, and non-pop artist to get nominated in MTV Music Video Awards. Swift’s “Bad Blood” was able to get into that list, and Minaj tweeted, “If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year.”
Swift felt that Minaj was targeting her and the tension between the two grew, at least in the twitter world. Minaj was of course talking about racism in the industry and not her.
Lorde actually praised Taylor Swift on how she is so perfect and in some extent, “unattainable”. She said in a magazine interview, “I don’t think it’s breeding anything good in young girls. I’m never going to be like Taylor Swift, why can’t I be as pretty as Lorde?’ That’s fucking bullshit.”
That sparked some misunderstanding between the two and it went on for a while. It prompted Lorde to clarify the context via Tumblr. The two later sorted it out when Lorde explained about the comments.
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler
Taylor Swift seems to be overly sensitive on jokes made about her, even from comedians. In 2013 Golden Globes, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler made a joke about her dating trends. Fey said on stage, “You know what, Taylor Swift? You stay away from Michael J. Fox’s son.”
Poehler added “Go for it,”But Fey responded, “No, she needs some me time to learn about herself.”
Swift reacted to this in her Vanity Fair cover preview article, with the quote – There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women. Ouch!
She’s the actress who became Joe Jonas’ new girlfriend after Swift. Like other people whom Swift has clashed with, the tension became apparent in Swift’s song “Better Than Revenge”. The lyrics mentioned an actress, specifically,
She’s not a saint and she’s not what you think. She’s an actress, whoa
She’s better known for the things that she does on the mattress, whoa
Soon she’s gonna find stealing other people’s toys
On the playground won’t make you many friends
She should keep in mind, she should keep in mind
There is nothing I do better than revenge, HA!
(Lyrics from Better Than Revenge by Taylor Swift)
Chloe Grace Moretz
Actress Chloe Grace Moretz tried to clarify that she isn’t really anti-Swift, even after some vague comments she made when she didn’t join the squad. She said in one interview, “She’s (Swift) a very talented person,” she said to the reporter. “You can talk to me about these things, you know,” he replies. “You know I can’t!”
Apparently, some people speculated that there was something shady about this. Chloe later clarified that she was only anti-squad.
Last July 2015, Ed Droste tweeted a screenshot of a tabloid headline “Mean Girl Taylor’s Friendship Rules”. Squad girls Gigi Hadid and Martha Hunt went ballistic on him on Twitter. The guy later quit using his twitter account.
From March 2015 to June 2016, the world watched this sweet couple. But when they split up last June, Swift was seen making out with Tom Hiddleston one week later. PopCrave then tweeted, “Calvin Harris has unfollowed Taylor Swift, blocked Taylor fans and deleted his break-up tweet.”
Calvin Harris later unfollowed her and removed the photos they had together in their Instagram account.
Joe Jonas broke up with Taylor Swift with a famous 27-sec phone call. He later started dating the actress Camilla Belle. Although there really isn’t much drama, Swift later voiced our her thoughts about “the actress” in the lyrics of her song “Better than Revenge”.
Taylor Swift and John Mayer dated in 2009, and like her other ex-boyfriends, a song came out about their relationship. In Swift’s “Dear John” lyrics,
Dear John, I see it all now it was wrong
Don’t you think nineteen’s too young?
To be played by your dark, twisted games
When I loved you so, I should’ve known…
When they dated, she was 19 back then and he was 32. John Mayer felt humiliated by the song and how Swift felt, he said “I didn’t deserve it. I’m pretty good at taking accountability now, and I never did anything to deserve that. It was a really lousy thing for her to do.”
Handsome heartthrob Jake Gyllenhaal is probably Swift’s first heartbreaker in Hollywood. They started dating in 2010 but it only lasted couple months. Gyllenhaal explained that he “wasn’t feeling it anymore.”
Apparently Swift was still crazy in love with him and she wrote her feelings in the song “The Moment I Knew” and “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”.
The album 1989 is basically all about Harry Styles. The two dated each other for almost four years until that famous incident where Swift was alone on a boat and Styles was seen having fun with another group.
When Swift won the award for Best Female Video on her song “I Knew You Were Trouble,” she said on her speech, “I also want to thank the person who inspired this song because he knows exactly who he is, because now I’ve got one of these.”
This is one of the craziest celebrity feuds in Hollywood. Many think that it started when Kanye interrupted Taylor Swift in VMA 2009. He said, “Yo Taylor, I’m really happy for you, I’mma let you finish, but Beyoncé had one of the best music videos of all time, one of the best music videos of all time.”
Kanye wanted to apologize to her, but the other party said that he didn’t really reach out to her. Later, her song “Innocent” was all about him.
Kim Kardashian used to Taylor Swift’s friend, until things got heated with her husband Kanye West. After the tension on Kanye’s song “Famous”, Kim pointed out how Swift lied. She said that the pop singer knew that the song was coming out and that they even have a phone call recording where Swift gave her blessing. Swift’s lawyer later sent a letter to them that said, “Don’t you dare do anything with that footage.”
The drama between the two still hasn’t ended, but so far, no song about it yet.
With what’s happening between Taylor Swift and her sister Kim Kardashian, it’s a bit awkward for Kendall Jenner considering she’s been invited to be in the music video “Bad Blood”. Apart from that, she was dating Harry Styles, whom was Swift’s ex-boyfriend.
She’s been silent and swift about her stand though. She quietly retweeted some of her sister’s posts and liked some pro-Kim posts, then later removed or reversed her actions.
Rihanna made it clear that she doesn’t want to be in Taylor Swift’s Squad, plus she’s Katy Perry’s best friend. There really is no big feud between the two singers, but RiRi said in a magazine interview, “I don’t think I would appear on the 1989 tour.” Clearly this is not a friendship match.
Some celebrity feuds just fades away, some lingers, and some gets resolved. There was a time that Lady Gaga thought Taylor swift was “full of s***”.
Who’s side is he in? It seems that Justin Bieber is the latest member of the anti-Swift squad. He recently posted this image of him in FaceTime with Kanye, and with the message “Taylor swift what up” Taylor has also been seen making faces at Justin when he was dating her best friend, Selena Gomez.
Last Feb 2016, Demi Lovato voiced out that she doesn’t get along with Taylor Swift’s version of a feminist. She wasn’t impressed with Swift’s way of supporting Kesha in her legal battle against Dr. Luke. She explained that “there are women that I don’t get along with, and that’s fine“. The singer added “My thing is, don’t brand yourself a feminist if you don’t do the work.”
Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift are BFFs. They sat and talked together during events, and Selena even defended Swift in the Kanye/Kim vs. Taylor Swift feud. Their friendship seemed solid and that’s what everyone thought for a long time.
Recently there’s some gossip that the “squad” is turning against Taylor Swift. Selena discovered some shady comments that Taylor had made about her weight and romantic relationships.
