Taylor Swift snubbed Carrie Underwood at the Grammys, Carrie is ‘always rude to her’

Over the weekend, I covered an Us Weekly story about Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift and how much they dislike each other. I covered it because I believed it, because there was enough evidence (for me) showing that even if Carrie and Tay-Tay don’t have a full-on hate-on for each other, the two ladies probably don’t care for each other in general.

Yesterday, Carrie Underwood was asked about the Swifty-girlfight rumors by Gayle King over at CBS’s This Morning. When asked if she was feuding with Taylor, Carrie told Gayle, “No, not that I know of at least… I really like ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’. It sounded a lot different for her. I liked the branching out, trying some different sounds.” Which… that’s kind of passive-aggressive, right? It’s like saying, “I like that one song you do because it doesn’t sound exactly like all of the other cheesy crap you usually do.” Carrie also said, “In every magazine, in pretty much every newspaper or on gossip TV shows, they can just get away with it by saying ‘a source said’ or ‘an insider said.’ I’ve read the most ridiculous things about myself when people do that.” So, is the feud done? Not really.

What Taylor Swift doesn’t say in song, she says with her silence. The country crooner’s feud with Carrie Underwood made seating charts a nightmare for the Grammys staffers, a source tells Us Weekly.

“Such a headache!” the insider said of the last-minute scrambling. According to another source, however, the strategic separation of the two wasn’t just limited to the Staples Center auditorium on Sunday, Feb. 10.

Staff members also had to keep the pair “from crossing paths” on the red carpet and throughout the ceremony. But the root of the country contention isn’t coming from Swift, a friend of the singer insists.

“Taylor feels Carrie is always rude to her, so she steers clear of her,” the pal told Us. (A Grammy rep countered: “No requests were received from either artist.”)

A source close to Underwood, 29, similarly denies any feud, saying instead that the singer is just “shy.” The American Idol alum gave a rousing performance of her hit “Blown Away” during Sunday’s awards ceremony, but Swift didn’t seem too impressed.

“After Carrie performed, Taylor didn’t stand,” an eyewitness told Us. “Everyone else did.”

An energetic Swift was seen dancing and singing along to other performances throughout the night with her pal Claire Waterman, daughter of celeb jewelry designer Cathy Waterman.

To be fair, however, Swift, 23, may not have been paying too much mind to Underwood at the Grammys — she had other musicians to avoid as well. The singer, who opened the show with an explosive rendition of her hit “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” that took a dig at ex Harry Styles, also made sure to steer clear of John Mayer and his current girlfriend, a mint green-clad Katy Perry, 28.

Perry and Swift have previously been photographed smiling and happily posing together at events. Mayer, 35, and the “Dear John” singer briefly dated in 2010.

So… it sounds more like Tay-Tay has an ax to grind because Tay-Tay is basically a 13-year-old girl stuck in the bolt-on-y body of a 23 year old. Taylor didn’t stand for Carrie? That might sound like something that could be easily explained away, but you know it MEANT something for Taylor. I’m starting to think that this feud is one-sided, meaning that Taylor might really consider Carrie to be her nemesis. And while Carrie probably doesn’t care one way or another about Swifty, Carrie isn’t going to waste her time “snubbing” Swifty.

As for the John Mayer stuff… I can’t. He’s like a Douche Plague. I don’t blame Taylor for avoiding him. I suspect a lot of people avoided him at the Grammys.

    *Totally* misread that as “Taylor Swift stabbed Carrie Underwood”. slightly disappointed now.

  2. sarah says:

    If Taylor doesn’t chill with the “boyfriends” she’s going to make future seating charts impossible!!!

  3. brin says:

    Time to put your big girl panties on, Tay!

    • Little Darling says:

      Right? The immaturity that seems to cloud around Taylor is slightly unbelievable. Even the way she poses is sulky and teenager ish. She has the grown up boobies bolted on for good…when will the rest of her catch up,

  4. aims says:

    I think they’re both snarky bitches. It the lesser of two evils here. Taylor seems like the kind of girl, that if someone isn’t sucking up, then they’re rude. Carrie seems like a diva, and definitely gives of a holier then thy attitude. So they’re both snotty twits as far as I’m concerned.

    As far as John, we have all had regrets, regarding people we’ve dated. To the point that, I’m sure, some of us goes out of our way to avoid. This is one of those life lessons, and unfortunately, Taylor still hasn’t learned from it. She keeps repeating, but we all know that.

    • Meredith says:

      I had someone at work that I had clashed with. We steered clear of each other after that. But then I realized how uncomfortable it was for him whenever I was around him. So I made a point to stand next to him when he was in a group. He seemed to almost cringe – and I had so much fun doing it! Totally turned the whole thing around for me – maybe Taylor should try it.

  5. natalina says:

    Carrie is the most taleneted singer out there, and I doubt she is feuding with Taylor, she has no reason to start a publicity feud bc she’s so damn famous and wonderful

    • Lucinda says:

      I agree. I didn’t read Carrie’s comments as rude at all. Musicians are always wanting to grow and change. I think her comment about Taylor trying something different really was praise because doing something different can be scary and takes courage. Just how I read it. I can see the other interpretation if that’s where you’re leaning already.

      • Little Darling says:

        I think a bigger snub would be one of those, oh I haven’t heard her new stuff yet but best of luck! 🙂

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      “Carrie is the most talented singer out there…”

      WTF?! In what world? LOL..if by “talented” you really meant “nasally,” then I’d concur.

    • cali says:

      I agree with you!

      I first saw Carrie on ‘American Idol’; there she came across as very shy.

      Carrie can sing -really sing contrary to Taylor, whomI consider no-talent. Without acoustic or bakc drop, her voice is weak, no high notes, low voice – more spoken words than anything else.
      If anything, Taylor may feel intimated by Carrie who is the best country singer out there and, rakes in the money as well.
      Taylor comes across as easily jealous of others; vindictive as she reapeatedly attempts to trash her exes in her lyrics; she’s very immature for her age. Taylor stalks her exes, if it’s only by songs – Harry, the lastest victim, as she did in her opening number at the Grammy’s; she just can’t let go.
      While they stood for Carrie after her performance,nobody did for Taylor at the gRammy’s.
      By now, her reputation is the fodder, the joke of the day.
      Taylor is a very sore loser, as her facial expression said it all when Adele won; not sure why she thinks she can measure up to Adele or Carrie is beyond me.

  6. Prinny says:

    I think Taylor is probably jealous of Carrie’s voice, and Carrie is probably jealous of the fact Taylor writes her own music. I think these girls should get over themselves and just be glad they’re each so successful in their own right, and enjoy it while it lasts.

    • Gemini08 says:

      Carrie jealous of the fact that Taylor writes really bad songs that pretty much all sound alike and on the same subject (her broken heart)?? Sorry but I just don’t see that.

  7. Gia says:

    I get the feeling that Carrie probably “snubs” most people. She just comes across as not one for small talk. Sort of all business, unless she has known you for a long time or are family. Just a feeling I get from her…and if you ask me, that’s far more appealing than all the BS butt kissing and ‘no, YOU’RE great!’ smoke blowing that goes on btw the artists.

  8. Riana says:

    This is a pretty lame feud by gossip standards.

    Taylor avoids Carrie.

    Carrie gives polite answers when asked about Taylor.

    Sheesh. Where’s the down south debutante Blanch Devereux charm dripping with cyanide bitchiness???

    Still don’t believe there’s anything to this. if you don’t think someone likes you you tend to avoid them. No bitchiness needed. Same with Carrie, if you don’t care about someone you tend to give generic answers and don’t fawn all over them.

  9. garvels says:

    Taylor’s people are obviously going with the mean girl victim story line. Poor Taylor is such a victim….a victim who has probably banked over a 100 million dollars for her juvenile mediocre music that appeals to tween groupies. These type of cat fights really appeal to this group…so it looks like to me that Taylor’s PR team is going to milk this for awhile….

  10. happyhomo says:

    I feel the same way about this feud as the Jessica Chastian/Jennifer Lawrence feud.It is probably that these two women have healthy competitive spirits.They’re not best friends.How can they be when one is winning alot more awards that the other probaby doesn’t think they even deserve.But why should they be friends anyway?One is happily married and the other is dating teenage boys just so she can dump them and write about it.I can’t blame Carrie for steering cleer of Taylor and her overbite.

    • erika says:

      ughhh…it’s those squinty eyes that drive me nuts… wear your glasses girl your contacts are failing you!

  11. erika says:

    GROW UP! Or at least try and fake that you are grown up! no excuses, you’re out of high school, you’re over 21, GROW UP!

    “After Carrie performed, Taylor didn’t stand,” – that’s subtle swifty, and a fantastic way to make yourself stand out for the worse on national TV. I believe Chris Brown did the same thing to Frank Ocean. Loud n’ clear…

    and yes, we saw your uhhmm…’moving and groovin’ to all the performances. And in case you did you embarass Miss Waterman by hamming it up with the sign language dance moves and lip syncing. She couldn’t even turn her head to acknowledge you she looked soooo embarassed.

    Keep it up swifty and you are going to get ripped by the media.

    was I too rude to you??

    • Pop! says:

      I don’t think she can hear you…
      Maybe you should say it more aggressively?
      Jk lol
      i know people are tired of her but i think she’s harmless.

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      I watched the Grammy’s, including Carrie’s performance…the camera did NOT pan over to Taylor or her area of the audience after CU was done performing..so there was no way to tell if TS really stood up after or not..LOL so stupid and made up.

  12. boobytrap says:

    i am actually team taylor on this one.

    carrie’s bitchiness is well documented. i think she is probably really jealous of taylor, especially in recent years b/c taylor gets a lot of attention and wins a lot of awards. they are easily comparable being that they are both country-pop crossover artists.

    • jess says:

      This. I’ve never heard stories about Taylor being mean or rude to fans or people she is working with, but they seem to never end with Carrie.

      • Dana says:

        You must be reading only Taytor blogs. I live in Taytors town where she went to H.S. and she was as snobby and bitchy and stuck up as she is now. People in this town do not give her any recognition at all. Not well liked. She lives in the same condo as Nashville’s Hayden Panittiere and when Hayden needed a guitar late one night, Taytor sent a bodyguard down with a contract just to borrow a guitar. This is one of many stories about her. Trust me, she is not a nice person

    • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

      ^^^ +1000

    • WickedSteppmom says:

      Right? Carrie’s rep can claim she’s just “shy” and everyone here just glosses over it, but since there is such complete and total hate for Taylor Swift, it’s gotten to the point where it really feels like people are actively looking for things say “This is too immature. That is wrong. That’s not how you should do that.” Hmm, how about we take a look at everyone’s early 20’s and see exactly how mature, graceful, and classy/elegant you were? Oh wait, you didn’t have cameras documenting every move you made. Mind you, I’m not a crazy Swifty…my daughter loves her, but I’ve always thought there was something a little off…I just get tired of seeing daily posts of people picking every damn thing apart on this young woman.

    • Gemini08 says:

      So because Carrie is a bitch that gives Taylor the right to be one? Sorry- but that is SO high school. She was being a bitch- period.

  13. Chordy says:

    I just want to rip that necklace off Carrie Underwood and slick her hair back into a low bun. Carrie, you’re super hot, you’re a stone cold bitch, you’ve got pipes for days, and you are wearing that Cavalli like it was made for you. It’s time to werk. it.

  14. some bitch says:

    Carrie, Taylor, Katy and John are all douchebags.

    This story is basically about douchebags acting douchey because they’re forced to interact with other douchebags.

  15. Madriani's Girl says:

    This is one of the reasons I can’t stand Taylor Siwft: her exhausting immaturity. If someone is rude to you, either stay away from them or treat them with kindness. The best way to get someone to stop being rude is to be as nice as pie to them and it is guaranteed to make them feel like an a$$hole. Or you can just tell them they’re being rude and to knock it off. This whole “she’s really mean to me so I’m going to be mean to her” crap is just another of Swift’s many childish bids for attention.

  16. KellyinSeattle says:

    psst: Taylor’s a witch, pass it on. Puleaz!! She’s not in high school anymore; was she ever?

  17. Gemini08 says:

    I always knew Taylor was a mean-girl in disguise. I think she is the one who is threatened by Carrie- who is a far more talented singer than she is. I think Carrie could just simply care less and see Taylor as a non-entity in her life. And I don’t blame her. People who are secure with themselves don’t spend their time on juvenile crap like this. And we all know how juvenile Taylor is.

  18. Bridget says:

    Carrie Underwood is pretty famously unpleasant – for goodness sake, her nickname on Lainey’s site is “Country Bitch” and her bad attitude has even been discussed on this site. She’s just excellent at portraying herself as sweet and nice.

  19. Kelly says:

    I like Carrie a lot. Taylor is ok but starting to get annoying with her comments on feminism and ll the boy drama surrounding her.

  20. KS says:

    Taylor Swift’s red carpet posing is so ridiculous. She has reached Lea Michelle carpet levels of absurdity and is on the verge of taking her camera mugging to a level even beyond LM.

    I didn’t even think that was possible.
