Did Abigail Breslin call Taylor Swift ‘an emotionally unstable cat lady’?


Little Miss Sunshine is coming for Taylor Swift!!! This makes me so happy. As we know, Abigail Breslin is all grown up now. She’s 18 years old and she’s managed to phase out of child stardom into young-Hollywood type of parts (she was decent in August: Osage County). And since she’s 18, we can talk about how she dated one of the guys from 5 Seconds of Summer, Michael Clifford. I don’t know how long they dated or anything, but it’s not important. They dated and it’s over now. Well, Taylor Swift is friendly with Clifford and they tweet each other and maybe flirt with each other a little bit. So Abigail decided to co-op one of Taylor’s lyrics – “Cause darling I’m a nightmare dressed like a daydream” – and make it her own:

YES. So much yes. I would love it so much if Abigail was truly throwing shade at Swifty. Alas, I don’t think she was. After she tweeted that, Abigail tweeted this clarification:

Too bad. I would have loved it if Abigail decided she needed to be the one to take Swifty down a few pegs. And let’s face it… Taylor is sort of an emotionally unstable cat lady.

Some photos of Swifty out and about yesterday. She turns 25 years old tomorrow, and her friends already threw her a birthday dinner in the East Village.

    She says it like it’s a bad thing.

    GOD that eyeliner

  3. kri says:

    bwahaahaha! that is classic. LOVE that coat.

  4. mzizkrizten says:

    Wow she is so pretty! I wouldn’t even recognize her as the cutie from Little Miss Sunshine.

  5. aims says:

    How has Taylor become untouchable? It’s no no to take a jab or even roll your eyes at the women. She mediocre at best, and honestly she seems a little up tight.

    • Allie says:

      Omg thank you! I’m just so confused as to why everyone is sucking up to her lately. I need someone to start a fight with her. So much entertainment.

    • What? says:

      Seriously! It’s amazing to watch how Taylor has positioned herself within the last two years. It’s like the Beygency- Taylor has become offlimits.

    • olly says:

      Yes! Please explain what is so damn precious about her except her mediocre music. And if someone tells me, she is a good role model for girls, then mediocrity has become the new standard in a meritocracy.

    • FLORC says:

      If you speak poorly of her I hear we’re reserved a special place in hell. And did Swifty do something to her face? She looks… different.

      Same for Breslin. She looks so different, but doubt it’s work done.

      • Loo loo says:

        Down with these douches, then.

        I’d never want to hurt a sensitive nervous system for the sake of my own ego. But I surely will protect people who aren’t utterly evil getting accused of such over the clashing of egos.

    • Veruca Salt says:

      THANK YOU. This is true. So many commenters and news outlets, even celebs, blowing smoke up her a**, she isn’t even a good performer, her live performances blow.

  6. Tig says:

    Love the coat- cat ladies unite!

  7. RobN says:

    The first tweet was actually pretty clear. Not everybody who quotes lyrics is throwing shade on whomever wrote them.

    • Veruca Salt says:

      It could actually still be misconstrued as the original singer of the song could really fit the description of what Abigail Breslin tweeted. Or at least what some of the public perceive a Taylor to be. Emotionally unstable cat lady is not such a bad thing though, to be fair.

    • Loo loo says:

      If I was shading her. I’d say darling, I’m a nightmare dressed as a Long Island divorcee trying to pass myself off as a daydream.

      As for my own spin, I’d say, cause darling I’m a daydream dressed like an unstable cat lady.

      But that’s just cause people treat me like I’m Lindsay Lohan, and I don’t abide to being an utter reject, especially from these freaking people!!

      Hmmm.. Maybe Hollywood has done a number on ill’ Breslin.

      Hope she doesn’t think she’s not pretty enough for this stupid industry, she looks like the sort to look better in her 40s than she did in her teens. A blessing, really.

  8. Sea Dragon says:

    She’s swimming in that coat!

    • tealily says:

      Yeah! She certainly is dressed like an emotionally unstable cat lady.

      • GingerCrunch says:

        Yep. Sub a 70 year-old’s head for Taylor’s and that’s exactly what you’ve got! Terrible look. (see comment below)

  9. Lama Bean says:

    Between the coat, the handbag, and the shoes, Taylor has managed to make herself look about 60 years older than she actually is. Looks like she borrowed some of Queen Elizabeth’s stuff!

    • the blonde one says:

      yes, but to her credit, she’s still not an olsen

    • Shahrizai says:

      Those shoes kill me, and not in a good way. I guess I just feel that if you’re going to wear a heel, COMMIT to a heel – a high one! *shudder* over low, kitten heel styles.

  10. Domino says:

    Her legs… oh my god… a skeleton’s legs have more fat than that!! Gross!!

    • zesto says:

      this is a horrible comment. not ok to body shame skinny people. i get the same comment and guess what – i can’t change my genetics.

      • Ally.M says:

        I’m with you zesto. My legs are much skinnier than Taylor’s. Some people have slim limbs. Can you imagine if people were saying she had fat legs, they’d be an outcry.

      • Domino says:

        No there wouldn’t be an outcry if they said her legs are fat. If her legs are fat they are fat. If they are skinny they are skinny. WTF

      • zesto says:

        well you were not just stating they were skinny. you were also adding they were gross. nice to hide behind your keyboard with comments like that, isn’t it?

    • Veruca Salt says:

      To be fair, she has been looking a little unhealthy lately, I think it’s just masked by tailored outfits and good makeup. When a VS model looks stocky next to you, I think that’s a sign one should start looking after their health,

  11. Charlie says:

    Abigail apperntly also recorded a Swift-esque song about that guy. There was a twitter/tumbler meltdown. Don’t ask how I know this.

  12. J Stone says:

    Sometimes you just have to call it as it is.

  13. It is what it is says:

    You’re happy when young women fight with each other?

    • jjrox says:

      I thought the same thing. So much Swifty hate.

      • gefeylich says:

        OH NO – it’s Swift’s “Fey and Poehler HATE WOMEN” self-righteous defense all over again. Call a whining photo-op-chasing girl-pony what she is and it’s because you HATE WOMEN.

        Uh-huh. This kind of wholesale stupidity is why women are losing their reproductive rights, their ability to make an equitable wage AND protect themselves against violence. Don’t mind any of that – THINK OF POOR TAY-TAY’S FEELERS.

      • Veruca Salt says:

        Sigh. I’m with you gefeylich

    • Bob Loblaw says:

      Why shouldn’t women fight? Do we always have to be perfect little angels who never hurt the feelings of any special snowflakes? Stop pretending your judgy patriarchal BS is any better than rooting for a cat fight.

  14. Rhiley says:

    I want Taylor’s coat collection- the whole lot. Girl has the best taste in coats. The orange one she wore the other day with the red hat was so cute in a Good Times sort of way.

    • Amanda_M87 says:

      I like Taylor’s coat collection too, but it’s too bad that just about all of them wouldn’t be practical in December in Ottawa, Canada.

  15. jjrox says:

    Why does this site feel like it has to take down Taylor Swift? One minute its supporting feminism and then in the next throwing shade at Swift who has done a lot to show women can be successful in music on their own terms. Isn’t that what feminism is about? Women having the right to succeed on their own terms equal to the chances men have? You might not like her terms or how she expresses herself but does that mean you have to get excited when you think someone else is trashing her? That’s crappy in my opinion. She’s not trying to be someone else and doesn’t seem to need to use sex to sell herself. So what’s the problem? I love this site but this really bothers me, its so incongruous with how I feel the site treats other female celebrities.

    • Kitten says:

      You forgot to add that she has two awesome cats.

      • Dree says:

        Yeah, lets leave the cats out of it! Cats are awesome.
        To be quite honest i think Taylor is probably very smart at least thats the impression i got on the voice. She seemed a lot more intelligent than Gwen, Adam and Blake combined. I am not into her music and drama though. But on some level she might be a better role model to young girls than the majority of her female contemporaries. Because at least she writes her own songs and has some kind of creative input. Looking at you Katy Perry and Riri!

    • Allie says:

      Feminism does not mean I have to support or like every female. I don’t hate her because she’s successful. I’m confused as to why she is. She can’t sing, she doesn’t write her songs on all her own-she gets help like most pop stars. She’s very calculated and humorless (unless it’s on her terms). She’s constantly trying to get media attention, it’s exhausting. There really isn’t much I like about her. And it’s not because I’m jealous. Her fans get so worked up with any type of critism regarding her.

      • Shantal says:

        And her critics are so damn pressed about her that it’s laughable. I mean, who gets excited over the possibility that one woman called another woman a crazy cat lady. Seriously?

      • Veruca Salt says:

        +1000 Allie

        I suggest Allie’s and gefeylich’s comment.

    • It is what it is says:

      +100 @jjrox

      • jjrox says:

        I’m not saying disliking Swift is anti feminism, I’m saying encouraging one woman to bring down another successful woman for no good reason is.
        And I am not saying Swift can’t/shouldn’t be criticized. I’m saying what is the criticism here? The main criticism here seems to be Swift is too cutesy, too old lady, and likes cats too much. I feel that normally, in a non Swift post, this article would have been about how petty Bresen was for her tweet. Although it seems like a non story now that Bresen has said she meant it about herself.

  16. Leslie says:

    When one celebrity disses another, it always makes the one doing the dissing look bad. Is Abigail jealous that Taylor is getting more tabloid attention than she is?

  17. Susan says:

    It may be really lame and OLD (as I am!) but I like Taylor not for her amazing voice or groundbreaking sound but for the fact she is someone I can let my children (esp my daughter) listen to without getting that inevitable “mommy what does $&@? mean?” Not to mention the videos and performances are not PG13.

  18. Dree says:

    Leave cats alone!!

  19. Veronica says:

    Honestly, I’m kind of glad she was masking fun of herself. The cat lady joke is the bottom rung of jokes you can throw at women, especially since it’s tied into some really gross ideas about female happiness being tied to relationships. And Girl Shit is more entertaining when it’s creative, not relying on old stereotypes.

    Tay-Tay strikes me as somebody who was more dramatic than emotionally unstable when she was younger. I think of some of the stupid shit I did at that age and sometimes wonder how much worse it would have been if I’d had that kind of money and power at my disposal. She was only 14 when she broke out, so who knows how much that stunted her.

  20. Abby says:

    I think Taylor could say herself that she’s an emotionally unstable cat lady. She owns it! Live on cat ladies! This just makes Abigail look bad. And young.

  21. I Choose Me says:

    I’m loving that blue coat on Swifty. That’s all I got.
