In Touch: Taylor Swift’s friends call her ‘Ursula’, from ‘The Little Mermaid’

tay in touch

In case you were wondering, In Touch Weekly has the best Taylor Swift-Kimye story this week. Us Weekly’s cover story is oddly balanced, and besides that, Us Weekly already published the most pro-Kimye parts of their cover story online. But In Touch Weekly is where all of the name-calling, shade-throwing and dumpster-firing is happening. This is a really long piece and I’m skipping the endless summarizing about what happened when Kim Kardashian Snapchatted Taylor and Kanye’s conversation. We know what happened there already. Tears, lies and manipulation. I’m interested in the Taypocalypse, and In Touch has got it. Some highlights:

A music insider speaks. “Taylor’s image as America’s Sweetheart Pop Princess has taken a great fall. She’s been exposed as manipulative. I don’t think it can get any worse for Taylor.”

Some in her squad are rejoicing. An insider claims: “Some in her squad are talking about how relieved they are that the real Taylor is being exposed. They all have so much more dirt on her and want to reveal Taylor for who they believe she really is: a vindictive, manipulative person who runs over anyone who dares to challenge her.”

Calvin Harris is still steaming mad too. Calvin, sources say, “knows how calculating she is.” When he went off on his Twitter rant last week, he meant it as a warning. If she pushes him again, “he’s going to expose and destroy her.”

What Calvin knows. “Calvin knows how she’s had some work done. But she refuses to admit having plastic surgery and instead refers to it as ‘enhancements.”

Selena Gomez isn’t completely Team Swifty. While Selena stood with Taylor publicly, sources say that privately Selena “recently found out some pretty horrible stuff Taylor has said about her, including about her weight and choice of boyfriends. Now some of the girls have started revealing what they’ve been hiding about Taylor.”

Taylor = Ursula. “Some of the girls call her Ursula, after The Little Mermaid’s manipulative sea witch, because she’s so controlling,” says an insider, who adds that Taylor is the type of girl “who will see a fiend have three drinks and tattle to her boyfriend that she’s an alcoholic.”

Taylor kicked Kendall Jenner out of the squad. “Kendall Jenner hasn’t done anything mean to Taylor but she got kicked out of the squad solely because she’s related to Kim and Kanye. And Taylor wants Gigi Hadid to join her in kicking Kendall to the curb. Taylor laughs about it like it’s no big deal to meddle in people’s lives.”

Demi Lovato hates Taylor too. “Demi learned from Selena that while Taylor pretended to be there for her when she was going through her struggles, she was calling Demi an awful singer and insulting her intelligence. Demi has been holding on to a lot of secrets about Taylor and now she feels like it’s time to leak them.”

Katy Perry is thrilled. Sources say Katy has been in contact with Calvin Harris and “Katy is loving all the drama. She thinks this is the perfect revenge.”

No apologies. “Taylor’s public persona is everything to her. She built her image and branded herself with a huge team, working step-by-step for years, and now all these truths are coming out. It’s a public relations disaster. She’s overwhelmed with the amount of bad press and feels the pressure, but she still hasn’t apologized to anything – she thinks she’s perfect. But it’s all coming back to bite her.”

[From In Touch Weekly, print edition]

Even though this is from a questionable source like In Touch, much of their information is based off of stuff we already know. And if these quotes took you back to middle school, that’s probably the biggest problem here. I don’t doubt that Taylor has bad-mouthed various squad members behind their backs. I don’t doubt that many of Taylor’s victims are sharpening their knives. But I also think Taylor brings this out in people: she’s so immature and so childish, all of her friends and enemies get sucked into this middle school drama. She’s like a Regina George Vortex.

There’s a distinct lack of tea-spilling here, which made my mind wander as to just what kind of “secrets” the squad really knows. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure they have some dirt on Taylor, but it’s going to be more of the “she got implants” and “she secretly said mean things about Lorde!” variety.

    Like I said, if anything this all proves that Taylor is not a trustworthy “friend” Kanye called her (instead of pulling a classic Eminem and putting her in there anyway) he even says in the call that he valued their friendship. But that obviously didn’t matter much to Taylor. Point being: I’d be a little weirded out by being around her too if I were her “friend.”

    • Little Darling says:

      Diplo said exactly all of this when he had his beef with Taylor while ago.

      “Her powers—she’s big. She’s strong, bro. Taylor Swift is very strategic with her friends and enemies. And I know lots of secrets. I can’t divulge, but I know a lot of stuff about her. And she’s definitely…there’s definitely scary stuff going on,” he tells GQ. “And I’m scared. I’m scared for my life.”

      When I went back and read those articles yesterday, everyone went nuts on him, telling him he needed to get a life etc, why is this old man picking on this little girl. I think he was telling his truth and trying to out her for whatever she did to Katy Perry. If Diplo knows tons of things, imagine what Calvin and her friends know.

      Also I FIRMLY believe Kanye really truly in his heart of hearts thought Taylor was being honest when she checked YES in the box on the note when he asked if they REALLY were cool and friend. She checked YES!!!

      • Bonzo says:

        I thought it was telling the Kim made sure the first bit of video she dropped was Kanye asking her if she still had the Nashville phone number. She was letting everyone know that Taylor and Kanye were good enough friends that he had her private cell number. They weren’t speaking through their agents or managers, they had a personal relationship.

        I do think he was taken aback by her about face at the Grammys as well.

        I really want these people to spill the dirt on her. They’re more likely to be believed now that she’s been stripped of her power over the media.

      • C says:

        I agree with both of you.

      • Alex says:

        Agreed. I don’t know how many stories about her have to come out but my guess is Kim opened the door and her team is panicking because THEY KNOW a lot of people have dirt on taylor for days

      • Ronaldinhio says:

        THis is a perfect commentary and mirrors exactly how I feel

      • Aren says:

        Very much agree with you. People are calling this “high school drama” but I’m sure it’s much more serious than that.

      • Trinity says:

        Honestly I never trust in touch but Kaiser is right in that most of this has been reported and just grouped together here. Vulture was pretty smart too. The superficial stuff is ngl but to me she’s done irreparable damage to her reputation. Lacks integrity as a business woman and let her vindictive/vengeful hate get the best of her.

        The biggest thing ignored that reminds me of Diplos comments is: RICK RUBIN was in the room. Rick has NO need to lie to or on Taylor, and clearly was to make sure it was a honest and still professional conversation for approvals. If you don’t know who Rick is look him up. Also the fact that knowing she blatantly lied, Rick – an industry vet – sat and watched her bold face lie. Height of unprofessional. Her squad means shit. It’s not real. Anyone knows there is a difference between true friends and a squad. If you have true friends – you don’t need a gang/squad. Only a person who doesn’t understand what it means to have true friends needs a squad and needs to desperately flaunt their squad. The Taymerica was such an embarrassment of desperate gaming of pop culture into believing her version of life – it wasn’t real or genuine.
        If this were a one time altercation Taylor had it would be different… You know how they say some people draw trouble. Taylor is that person. They never want to tell you how they got their hands dirty while throwing dirt and playing victim. She has more adversaries that shows she the type of person she is… John Camilla Katy Kanye Joe Jake Harry Nikki Calvin and on and on. This can’t always be someone else’s fault. And as for parents thinking she’s a great role model, I’ve never bought into that. Bad Blood is not how you teach girls to think of conflict or group socialization. Taylor’s not cool.

      • Betti says:

        @trinity – by accounts her parents are just as bad, if not worse. They have a rep as being typical stage parents, who uprooted their family to move to Nashville to get their ‘child talent’ a record contract (which means Daddy buying a 60% share in a fledgling record label) to by his Princess a record contract. Tay has clearly been told most of her life how special and talented she is – she is a mediocre songwriter as most with not so great vocals. She got lucky as she has access to the best talent Daddy’s money can buy.

      • LadyLoo says:

        Little Darling, you are officially my little darling.

    • kay says:

      All the gossip about Taylor is just gossip. People have been bashing her since her first song came out. None of you on here commenting know anything first hand. I am really starting to believe that she is not what people want to perceive as american nowadays. She is young white and country{more pop now}. Kanye is and will always be a piece of garbage alomg with the trashians. I would like to know why Kim won’t release the entire tape. You know very well E network has the entire convo. Strange how she hasn’t. The comments about Taylor on here are no different than what you are all accusing her of doing to other people and you have no proof .

    • Ellecommelejour says:

      What you ALL said!
      I have NEVER EVER liked her! Always saw through her game and personality!
      I’m glad things are changing, even if it’s just a little.
      I cannot believe she is 27! Behind the doors these stories are way more serious than it appears I’m sure! The girl is a freak!

      And the fact that people are still defending her or saying it wasn’t that bad are just killing me!

    • Anon says:

      I am not saying taylor is a nice person or I am fans of any of these people but I think Kim and Kanye are just as dishonest and fake for acting like they want to be friends with her. First Kanye does that speech thing – then he writes a joke lyric about how he knows she would have sex with him. They just insult her and then act shocked that she hates them.
      Even if it is a joke – if a married male not really friend called and started telling you how bad you wanted to have sex with him – would you think he was a jerk and maybe not be that nice to him? It was poorly played by Taylor though and she is paying for it.

      • TruthSerum says:

        Interestingly, though, have you noticed that her complaints about the lyric have nothing at all to do with the “might have s3x” line? She knew Kanye’s wife was there, and anyone else would probably consider these lyrics and the whole idea creepy coming from a married man. What’s worse: The part about sleeping with her was the part he read to her over the phone – she responded that she found it “flattering,” and was prepared to answer on the Grammy red carpets that “Oh, we talked about it before.” She seemed dismissive of and unbothered by the expected fallout from the public about the lyric.

        She was recorded endorsing this song in front of witnesses. So what does she do? Claim that she took offense to being called a “b!tch” in the song. Why? That piece of the lyric wasn’t read to her in the recording. 😁

        Sooo…You were “flattered” that he said you might sleep with him, but it was NOT okay for him to say “b!tch”?

        Taylor is full of it.

  2. SBS says:

    But if they dislike her so much why are they in her “squad” to begin with?

    • Locke Lamora says:

      Publicity? I mean, Selena has a career because she dated Justin and is friends with Taylor. Even indie darlings like Lorde or Haim benefited from being friends with her.

      • SBS says:

        Okay, so they use her for her fame. I don’t see how that gives them any moral high ground. But maybe that’s just me…

      • Locke Lamora says:

        I didn’t say it gives them a moral high ground. Noone involved in this mess comes across well.

      • Lynnie says:

        It doesn’t. They’re all users. Maybe they legitimately wanted to be friends in addition to using, that didn’t happen, and now they’re speaking out of frustration of having to please her all the time?

      • KWM says:

        Having friends like Taylor at first you think you really are friends with them. When they are that good at manipulation it takes a while for the person to catch on to the fact that what you thought was a true friendship was just the other person using you. And that is just with a nobody. Then add in the power of Taylor and the benefits that come with it. Plus lets face it everyone in the squad seems to be stuck in middle school.
        It the same with guys you think well that was his last girlfriend that won’t happen with me. But it always does.

      • Anners says:

        What KMW ^^ said. I’ve been sucked in more than once (slow learner) by ‘friendships’ like these. Once I finally untangled myself, and saw the full picture of how awful it was, I’ll admit I wanted to broadcast the truth to any and everyone. But I’m a grown up, so I just vented to family 😉

      • kay says:

        Selena Gomez has her own career and doesn’t need to hang out with Taylor for publicity.

    • LadyMTL says:

      @SBS I think part of it is for publicity (to be honest, I never knew who Haim were before I saw them in the squad) but you are right when you say that those girls aren’t exactly on a moral high ground if that’s why they were hanging out with Swift in the first place.

      At the end of the day, I guess it’s now more of a “save yourself” situation. No matter the reasons for wanting to be in the squad, I doubt any of them would want to stand up for Taylor Swift at this point.

    • The Eternal Side-Eye says:

      But how many girls are actually left in the squad?

      If you look at the original crew many of them dipped out and haven’t returned. The biggest one for me was Karli Kloss, those two were attached at the hip and suddenly? Completely dead relationship. Jaime King who went on that weird pregnancy rant for Taylor has been mum too. Zendaya was there for a few red carpets and that’s it.

      She chose a lot of their squad for their image and being asked to act in music videos isn’t weird for the industry. I’m sure even the group posing on red carpets was cool with them, but it seemed once they all hung out more a lot of girls stopped associating with her. Now her ‘squad’ is all new girls including Camilla from Fifth Harmony.

      The amount of celebs who’ve taken to Twitter to join in the party against her suggests she’s got quite a few enemies.

      • Little Darling says:

        Jamie said something on Twitter I think, not in defense but in solidarity that they are still friends.

        I think Taylor is probably a good friend to those she considers good friends. Everyone else is collateral on her way up. If she doesn’t consider you a friend, or you can’t do anything to help her image, or you go against her, it seems like you’re then on the receiving end of the Wrath.

      • LolaBones says:

        Wasnt Karlie in that Taymerica thing they did on the 4th?

    • Gena says:

      I’m starting to wonder if Taylor doesn’t threaten to ruin them if they don’t pretend to be her friend. Like, Lorde had said something negative about her initially and suddenly two days later they were besties.

      “You want to work in this town again? Meet Taylor at the froyo shop at 4 for some pap pics or you are OVER.”

      • HH says:

        FroYo shop?!?!?!?! LOL! I’m dying. I guess this high school drama means we can’t upgrade her to the local cafe/coffee shop. Adults only.

      • ElasticBean says:

        He he he! Think you are on to it there Gena.

      • Keaton says:

        I noticed that too. It’s like her way of shutting down criticism: Pathological (fake) “friend” collecting.
        The second she hears someone of (relative) stature/fame say something negative about her she seeks them out and tries to woo them to her side. If they’re not super popular and famous she doesn’t bother (or allegedly her minions attack). But if the critic is famous and popular she tries to make them part of Team Swifty.

        Maybe I’m misremembering but it seems like she did this with others too – not just Lorde.
        Taylor appears obsessed with projecting the appearance of popularity.

    • Lena says:

      I assume at first they were flattered and she seemed nice. It was only after some time that they realized how she really is. I don’t think it is a coincidence that most of her friendships go trough a very intense phase when they are seen a lot together and then they fizzle out. But they probably were afraid to really go against her because she is so powerful and was everyone’s darling and favorite poor victim.

      • maria 2 says:

        + 1

        who hasn’t met those kind of people? They seem so nice but kind of wierd that their friends change after a short amount of time. And then you get to know said person yourself….

      • Justjj says:

        Every manipulative person I’ve ever met is like this. They have a core group of yes people-this is key. Maybe a childhood friend or two, maybe a few people who are totally unassuming and normal. This is how they blend in and fill the I’m a good friend and normal human act…

        They use them to meet other people, to meet their emotional needs when they are at the bottom of the barrel, or to just generally feel well adjusted and better about themselves in comparison when they are in a lull. These people are usually co dependent or insecure themselves and are typically satisfied with the bones manipulative people throw them out of their sweet, love-filled, sincere, goodness and generosity(boredom).

        The revolving door is reserved for people who have something they want: information about someone else or a career, image, sex, a social or financial advantage, a promotion, a higher economic position, good looks, likability, success, popularity, etc. So the manipulative person homes in on these people like a shark and can be all kinds of kind and charming and beguiling until… They have either a.) conquered said victim/threat to them and have decided they are neutralized, then the love showers and special attention stop, b.) They start to figure out the truth and suddenly it’s gloves off… The smear campaign begins before the target even realizes they are a target. Or c.) They have sucked this person dry of all the information they have that will benefit them, or they have completely drained them emotionally and are therefore, vanquished.

        In conclusion, to call the individual members of her squad thirsty or say they are using her is a little presumptive. It’s possible she really and honestly duped them into believing there was real friendship magic. They’re all very famous without Taylor Smith.

    • Bonzo says:

      She is the powerful, popular cheerleader and all of the squad want to be in that position. Of course, they used her for their own publicity, because they want what she has. How many of us would be flattered if the popular girl in school wanted us to be in their squad? It’s human nature really and in the world of celebrity, everything is ratcheted up 100 times due to the scale of things.

      • Solanaceae (Nighty) says:

        Thank goodness I live in a country where there are no popular gils/boys and no squads,,, Everyone gets along fine (nerds, pretty girls, sports guys,, poor, rich, etc..)

    • MC2 says:

      +1. If details about Taylor’s life reminds us of middle school then this media campaign reminds me of the all girls catholic high school down the street.
      This public tear down is not amusing to me. I’m not enjoying opening up this site and saying “yeah- let’s really find out what we can to really destroy her!!”
      She was manipulative, he was a jerk. They were both total a-holes. He did take away her speech & make a life like naked doll of her and she was manipulative and telling him they were friends when she couldn’t give a rats a$$ about him. Okay- let’s slap her on the wrist and tell him to grow up too. This public tear down & telling her to go into hiding is crazy. I don’t find it fun.

      • Starkiller says:

        @solanaceae-and what country would that be? Narnia?

        This is an entitled twit acting like an entitled twit–hate to break it to you, but that knows no nationality. I promise you, there are jerks in every country (even yours!).

      • Solanaceae (Nighty) says:

        @Starkiller First, you don’t have to be rude. Second, I’m talking about this idea of popular kids, american schools have. I didn’t mean that everyone is best friends with everyone, just that there aren’t these groups of Im more importante than everyone else and mean squad groups you watch on movies. You don’t find groups of girls who try to be “loved” by everyone .

      • honeybee blues says:

        Solanaceae is right. This is a uniquely American characteristic. I am American, but was raised in Europe (all over), and the clique-ish behavior isn’t there. I went to a U.S. school for part of one year, and was horrified at the bullying and gang-like behavior. My mother pulled me after a few weeks. I was just too ill-prepared for that behavior. That’s not to say all cultures don’t have bullies and jerks, the difference is other cultures shut that crap down right out of the gate, and peers won’t allow one student to bully another. It’s just not done.

    • La Ti Da says:

      The later additions to the squad knew what they were getting into, but people like Selena, Demi, Karli, etc had no idea they were just there to make Taylor look cool. I was in a friendship like that once and its not obvious at first that you are being manipulated by the Queen Bee. There were four of us worker bees and every week or so one or the other would be on top because one of the others pissed her off. The weeks on the bottom were lonely and humiliating to say the least. Each of us played a different part in her narrative too, so sometimes she’d just drop plans with you because she needed what the other girl could provide. The Mean Girls movie was funny I guess, but having lived it once I found little entertaining about watching it on screen.

    • mila says:

      she uses them, they use her. they are all very sad people.

      besides, Selena is LV face and Kanye is friends if not sth more with Ghesquiere , the creative director. Gigi is friends with everyone, cos she knows she is famous for her money, just like Kendull.

      The only one with the brain there is Cara D. and she seems to have her priorities straight now, she does not need Taylor. In fact she never did, maybe she just wanted to party.

      Katy Perry is even worse, she is my age and she is fighting with mean girls… But then again, she cannot sing, write songs, so she needs publicity.

      Overall, not very nice people. Not very bright as well. They are just playing the media, but you cannot play that game and stay clean. The fact that you cannot show your real face is disturbing.

  3. OhDear says:

    Man, as much as I dislike Swift, her “squad” members don’t come across as particularly nice people either; so much frenemy drama. Water seeks its own level, though.

  4. Tiffany says:

    I believe it. I think the sources are legit and because it is InTouch, no one will believe it.

    • holly hobby says:

      Well InTouch went after the Duggars so I tend to sort of believe it. Plus they aren’t telling us anything that we haven’t read already.

  5. Samtha says:

    Nobody comes away looking good in this situation. If the people in her “squad” dislike Taylor so much and think she’s so terrible, they come across as spineless users.

    ETA: I thought Kendall got kicked out months ago for dating/hanging around Harry Styles.

    • Anthi says:

      That’s what I thought about Kendal too, I mean Swift always looked the vindictive kind and the Jenner and Styles hook up probably made her furious! And let’s not forget this:

      • Samtha says:

        OMG, I somehow missed that. Why am I not surprised Bieber’s mom is so messy?

      • Tiffany says:

        @Samtha. This is the same woman who went public and said she had a problem with Scooter Braun being Jewish and had to pray on it before making the decision for him to manage Bieber. Not that he would not do a great job managing him, or whether he will abuse him, nope, because he is Jewish. And repeated it again and again. So yeah, messy.

      • Valois says:

        I don’t even get that tweet.

  6. Micki says:

    I don’t want to defend Taylor but her so called “friends” should leave the “squad” if it doesn’t suit them. And then talk openly if they dare . Kicking her when she’s down doesn’t make them look better than Ursula.

  7. shachath says:

    This is gonna be a delicious summer.

  8. AnnieRUOk says:

    This reminds me too much of my high school clique. Anytime one person wasn’t around, we would have a ‘concerned discussion’ (aka gossiping) about their situation.
    There’s always one ‘alpha’ who just rubs me the wrong way.

    • maria 2 says:

      *lol* yeah taylor really is mentally stuck in junior high

    • Yesitstrue says:

      Ha! That just cracked me up. Funny because it’s true and I bet you’re exactly right. Whatever, I’m sure they all talk about each other.

    • Clucky says:

      Seriously. This article sounds exactly like my 16 year daughter describing how her day went to me.

      I wouldn’t want to be friends with any of them. Not one.

    • Cricket says:

      Reminds me of the movie Heathers. Heather red always in charge.. dark movie but was Mean Girls before Mean Girls came out.

  9. H says:

    I guess In Touch goes in Taylor’s burn book now?

      • Secret squirrel says:


        Except Taylor’s burn book comes in 24 leather-bound volumes and includes a faux antique mahogany bookcase for aesthetically pleasing storage.

    • Bonzo says:

      What entertainment media outlet isn’t at this point? From Washington Post & Time to Page 6 to E! to In Touch, they’re all roasting her.

      • mary mary says:

        Media along with pr machine build up the person,
        Now, the media and “journalists” begin the tear down.

        Meanwhile, backstabbing squad members will feel compelled for their next 15 minutes of fame to speak candidly how soul wrenching it has been to be friends with someone that was so vindictive. Lacking moral courage and integrity to speak out before, but hey now that the media is focused on a slow motion train wreck, let all the two-faced friends speak up for their next “candid” interview on what it was like to be in the squad and $ell the mean-girl tell all story 🙂

        Hiss Beware of snakes.

  10. paolanqar says:

    First of all the people in her ‘Squad’ are just as bad as Taylor because in no way i would get near people i don’t like or I can’t stand but hey, i am no celebrity and i do not seek public attention.

    The fact Calvin knows she has had work down…well it is quite obvious, especially considering she was always flat chested and now she sports a full C cup.
    I always had the idea that she wanted to be seen as cool and hip trying to surround herself with ‘cool girls’ and celebrities, almost by paying for their time and efforts.
    She doesn’t come across as genuine as she thinks she does but quite business savvy and manipulative.
    If I close my eyes i can see her saying ‘ You can’t sit with us’ to whomever is not good enough for her popularity plan.
    The truth will come out eventually.

    • Annieb says:

      Yeah, it’s quite obvious she’s had work done. You don’t need to date her to see it.

  11. Maria says:

    i doubt they have real dirt because they are not real friends. Taylor wont really let her hair down with them. its all a performance, sometimes even with a hired photographer to document it for the public.
    they know she is calculating but thats hardly news and they cant really complain as they use her too.

    • Squiggisbig says:

      Very true.

      Also saying she got implants is not going to be the big reveal that they say it is haha

      • Whatabout says:

        I actually think she had more work done than people realize. Her nose looks much more slender and I truly believe she had an eye lift before her Red album came out.

      • Samtha says:

        Whatabout, her entire lower face looks different to me. Could be dental work, though.

    • Little Darling says:

      NostraDiplo predicted and claims the same.
      I read the Diplo articles yesterday and he pretty much confirms all of this, and I believe him! Although then you can tell the tide was much less in his favor and EVERYONE ragged on him for being a grown man picking on Tay.

      “The producer, who’s worked with everyone from Britney Spears to Lil Wayne, knows better than to cross Swift—or her fans—again. “She has like 40 million Twitter fans. Forty million! Yeah. It’s crazy. I’m a fan, though. Her powers—she’s big. She’s strong, bro. Taylor Swift is very strategic with her friends and enemies. And I know lots of secrets. I can’t divulge, but I know a lot of stuff about her. And she’s definitely…there’s definitely scary stuff going on,” he tells GQ. “And I’m scared. I’m scared for my life.”

        I am surprised no one ever stopped to think why Diplo is scared of taylor?! I never knew about the article till now, but after reading this WTH is this girl like behind the scenes that would have this guy afraid of her. He didn’t talk about fear for his career or his finances, he said and meant his LIFE. I have long suspected Taylor was incredibly strategic, manipulative, and self involved, but what diplo is saying here goes deeper than we think IMO.

    • Lynnie says:

      I’d be interested in hearing what Selena has to say, if she ever decides to speak about this again that is. She’s the only one high-profilish one who seems to genuinely like her/hang out with her even though it seems one-sided at times. Maybe her getting hung out to dry a few days ago has her rethinking things.

  12. swak says:

    After about the 4th or 5th article of “Taylor Swift is a liar, plays the victim, is a nasty person, etc”, I get it. How many more do we need? Everyone in this is looking bad and it’s getting even worse. At least for now, Kimye are keeping their mouths closed. Taylor’s friends need to keep quiet also.

    • OhDear says:

      Part of it is because the general public is buying this all up. Another part of it is because it seems like people have been wanting to talk about her shadiness for a long time, but have been afraid to because she’s so powerful. Though as I said above, the “sources” cited here don’t come across well either.

      The lack of people defending her (and not in the “people should focus on more important things” defense) is very telling.

      • Kitten says:

        To be fair though, she hasn’t addressed all the rumors and negative pieces from the press, either.
        She’s been incredibly quiet and I wouldn’t be surprised if she instructed her friends and supporters to do the same. Maybe she’s hoping that it will just go away if nobody talks about it…yeah, not happening.

    • Kitten says:

      MTE. It’s actually having the reverse of the intended affect on me: the more people paint her like a character out of a movie, the less I believe it and the more suspicious and cynical I become. Also, this is the same magazine that was saying Heard was pregnant with Depp’s child earlier this year.

      Anyway, I doubt Taylor Swift is anything like the sweet-innocent-angel image she and her team spent years cultivating but I also doubt that she’s the evil-backstabbing-user-mean-girl-devil-monster that the media is making her out to be either.

      • swak says:

        Agree. It’s just that it’s tiring after a while. There’s their story and her story and somewhere in between is the truth. .Even some commentors on various sites are delighting too much in her downfall.

      • K.C. says:

        @Kitten Same. I find it hard to believe anyone could be such a caricature in either direction. Tabloids, particularly In Touch, take tiny bits of reality and spin it into fiction. I’m sure she’s perfectly nice to the people she’s close with. And I can believe she’d be an absolute sea witch when someone crosses her.

        I’d imagine the “squad” would prefer her image stay intact than get buried. They all benefit off that good girl, “let’s bake cookies and face paint” Miss America image, too. If her image goes down the tubes long term, so does their time in the limelight.

      • Noname says:

        @Kitten, swak @ K.C.- I agree with everything that all of you said here. Especially the delight in her downfall.. it’s being just as bad as Taylor is being portrayed.

        There are no winners in this. I think the long term implications for Kanye are going to be devastating. I know it’s common to document the work you put in for an album, what’s not is releasing recordings or footage of it without signed releases. It’s why Kim chose snapchat. In an effort to Taylor Swift down, I think Kim has sunk her own ship.

    • Adrien says:

      I don’t believe she is evil or anything the way Diplo or Calvin described her. She is calculating and controlling, as she should to stay in this business.

  13. Rhiley says:

    I thought the stuff about Selena Gomez was a little weak because Taylor has made it known that she does not like Biebs and thinks that he is gross. The sixteen year old in me did find the Kendall Jenner stuff interesting because I had forgotten KJ was kind of on the fringes of the squad. She probably doesn’t really care about the squad that much. I never look at Lena Dunham’s twitter, but I bet she posts some hyperbolic rant about boobs and bodies and feminism and friendship and power and Taylor and music and Taylor and body image and Taylor and education and Taylor and Florence Nightingale and Taylor and Amelia Earhart and Taylor and boyfriends and popcorn and Taylor and the beauty of a cello being played in the New York City subway and Taylor and bikinis and Queen and Taylor and love for dogs and Taylor and how violence needs to end and tennis shoes and high heels and Taylor.

    • RedOnTheHead says:

      Rhiley, this made me laugh out loud!!! Great comment. You summed up the ridiculousness that is TS, her squad, and Lena Dunham perfectly.

    • Aren says:

      lol, I loved this so much.

  14. Solanaceae (Nighty) says:

    If they don’t like her, why are they hanging around with her. I don’t hang out with people I dislike. I may have to work with them (we’re not always fond of our coworkers, but I think we can still respect them.. It’s not compulsory to like everyone)… But I definitely won’t hang out with them and go to their parties or invite them to mine,… Taylor and her friends are kettle meet pot to me…All of her “friends”..

    • Little Darling says:

      I feel a few of them really like her, Like Ed, and Lorde and Selena and Jamie. And I am SURE to those people with whom she gets beyond her image with, I am sure she’s an amazing friend to them. I don’t think she’s this awful godzilla who is awful and destructive to everyone she meets.

      I think somewhere in the last few years she became a caricature of herself. She bought into her own hype, pushed too hard with one direction (ha! with the band and with her image!) and that direction pulled away from her authentic self. Up to a certain point she was victim, but she was still earnest.

      At some point the whispering in her ear from her sycophants caused her head to balloon WAY up. Like, first the haircut, then Karlie, then road trip! After that roadtrip things went FULL throttle for Taylor.

      • K.C. says:

        This is an excellent, well thought out analysis of her. I totally agree. Not that I necessarily wanted to see her knocked down a peg, but she HAS been knocked down a peg, and I think it can only benefit her. It deflates the caricature that I think hit its peak at the Grammys.

        I have no doubt she’s great to the people she’s close with. She doesn’t strike me as a bad person, no matter how many headlines try to indicate otherwise. A flawed person with an ego an a vindictive, b*tchy side? Oh yes. But not a demon diva.

      • Little Darling says:

        Welllll, I kind of DO think she’s a demon diva in work, and particularly cut throat when it comes to the rise of her star/brand whatever. I do think she will, and has, stabbed many in the back…wait, no. I actually think her retaliation to all of these “grievances” is probably way over the top to what the truth of what actually happened. Like, let’s just say those two dancers found a better fit with Katy? It’s personal work, you spend a TON of time with people on tour. I don’t think everything that Taylor gets upset about necessarily has anything to do with her (read: Nicki fued).

        But if and when she is upset, or needs to protect her brand, if I was her aquaintance I would get out of her way so fast, Whoopie wouldn’t even need to say Girl you in Danger to me!

      • K.C. says:

        I can agree with that. Cutthroat is a good word. I think she’d go to great lengths to protect her brand, and it would seem that she DOES escalate issues that shouldn’t be taken personally. She’s incredibly defensive whenever she feels attacked, and often seems to hit back too hard.

        By “diva,” I meant it in the more Mariah Carey/Ariana Grande way. I don’t peg her as a “I want an all white dressing room floor to ceiling with monogrammed M&Ms displayed on my vanity” type. In that respect she does seem more down to earth, perhaps because she came from country.

  15. The Eternal Side-Eye says:

    Hmm, it’s weird how much all of that seems realistic.

    I always thought it was interesting how the closest people to Taylor seemed to have immediate relationship crashes with her vs. the members of the squad there for photos and Fourth of July picnics who linger but eventually duck out too.

    Karli is a big one and if anyone has the tea I bet it’s her. She went from being Taylor’s ‘twin’ to not acknowledging her at all. Other members show up for a while and I’m sure reap some career benefit but they’re phased out like old dolls that have been sitting on the shelf too long.

    • Pinky says:

      Beware the woman (or man) who tries to insta-friend you. They’re trying to win or buy your loyalty for their “team” and something more sinister later on. There’s something wrong with them and they will turn on you in a heartbeat later because they do not understand friendship or loyalty themselves. They are borderline at best and it sounds like Taylor fits that definition to a t, especially these symptoms from the Mayo Clinic:

      –An intense fear of abandonment, even going to extreme measures to avoid real or imagined separation or rejection
      –A pattern of unstable intense relationships, such as idealizing someone one moment and then suddenly believing the person doesn’t care enough or is cruel


      • Mae says:

        Agreed about the insta-frienders. Anyone who goes from 0 to 60 like that makes me suspicious; there should be a more low-key getting to know you period.

        I thought Taylor was giving off vibes closer to narcissistic personality disorder than borderline (commenters mentioned the NPD angle in other Taylor threads and I recognized the type from real life). She really likes to rewrite history to make herself more sympathetic, and it’s like she actually believes it, as opposed to calculating what will preserve her image. And it becomes so exaggerated and dramatic, for example: when she was teased for her boy-craziness, Taylor labelled the situation as her being a ‘lightning-rod for slut-shaming” . . she’s the main character in her victimized story and everyone else is not quite real to her (interchangeable dolls like @side-eye said). I don’t think she just ‘plays’ the victim, she seems to really see herself that way. This pattern reminds me so much of someone I know who I suspect of having NPD, and it is so damn annoying when they do the victim thing. There is just a complete refusal to take ownership and blame, because in their minds they are perfect and good. No wonder so many people are pissed!

    • Alex says:

      Agreed. All of it rings true because its classic mean girl. They think they are untouchable until they’re not. And when the house of cards come tumbling down the friends you screwed will help blow the stack over

    • Alicat1822 says:

      Oh yeah…Karlie is the Key. Wasn’t that last summer lovin’/ vogue-posing/ we heart the same exact things and totally share a brain “narrative” so odd? And then Karlie went away. Just like that. She’s been cattle prodded back into some recent photo ops, but she is always pictured on the end of the lemming line. I think Karlie might actully have a bit of substance and actual life #goals. Team Kloss!

    • Brea says:

      Yeah, I always thought that the Karlie thing was weird. I remember an interview where Taylor was showing her NY home and the journo described a guest room which was supposed to be “Karlie’s room” with a lot of pictures of Karlie and Taylor’s family and I found it odd. I have friends who sometimes sleep over after a night out, but I don’t decorate the guest room for them?? I don’t know, they seemed to have a really intense friendship that randomly fizzled out.

      • Alicat1822 says:

        I am still going with the theory that they had a “more than friends” romantic connection that both of their respective boyfriends (Calvin Harris at the time & Karlie’s long-term man) were fine with. The chemistry was pretty palpable. And ended abruptly once the photos of Karlie giving Swizzle a spontaneous kiss at a concert they were attending with friends SUDDENLY SURFACED! 🙄🤔

        *not that there is anything wrong with the alleged relationship. In fact, that would have made me want to give both of them a solid fist bump for doing their thing. But, alas, that circumstance would never be allowed a chapter in the Taymerica Narrative.

    • Millie says:

      Yep to all of this. Swift and Karlie’s friendship always seemed so disingenuous because when you compare it to Karle’s friendship with Jourdan Dunn you don’t see all the showy behaviour. Karlie and Jourdan are actual best friends forever. The interact with one another in a way that has meaning and don’t need to broadcast everything they do/ how strong their connection is/ how long they have supported one another in the modeling industry. Karlie is the godmother or Jourdan’s son as well.

      Jourdan and Karlie have been best friends for years and yet we didn’t need it flaunted around with a vogue cover or girl trips. Swift likes the exterior of friendships and letting everyone know the details and documented proof on social media.

  16. Nancy says:

    If it weren’t for her sanctimonious speech at the Emmy’s, I would “almost” feel sorry for Miss Swift. It’s not like she’s Donald Trump, she’s just a spoiled pop star who got exposed by a spoiled reality star. She will turn this around in a few more news cycles, and the “squad” may be looking for a new Ursula.

  17. Ginny says:

    Has Lorde said anything? Didn’t see her comments?

    • paolanqar says:

      I don’t think she likes being in the spotlight unless when she has to be and they’re probably not even close friends. They have probably used each other to gain more visibility and respect in the music business.

      • Ginny says:

        I always thought they were bffs since Lorde also stood up for her before.

      • Lynnie says:

        I think that was either during or after Lorde working on the Hunger Games soundtrack, and definitely after her first album when she was still getting buzz. So in other words she was in her “quirky, gothic, feminist” phase. I think they’re friendlier than other people on her squad for sure, but Lorde definitely has an image she tries to put out.

    • cherrypie says:

      I also wonder whether Ke$ha has said anything in her defence since this whole mess blowed up? I always thought that Swifty made them go public with that donation she made to the legal team as a condition for her paying up. I always thought that it was wierd that Ke$ha’s side had to publicise that donation….so if she has not come up on Taylor’s side thats quite telling for me.

  18. Pegacorn says:

    Hypocrites, all of them. They better be sure that Taylor really is over before they start blabbing.

    The internet has the memory of a goldfish. People will eventually forget about this. This is really only getting mileage because the world is such a shitty place right now and all this highschool drama is better than facing reality. Melania will be the next FLOTUS

  19. Apples says:

    Friends? Vultures more like it. With friends like that…

  20. NewWester says:

    I am just waiting for Katy Perry to make some comment. Katy and John Mayer dated for awhile. So maybe John shared some stories with Katy about his time with Taylor? I can see Katy waiting for things to die down a bit and then leaking some dirt to start it up again.
    It is all so high school but entertaining to watch!

  21. als says:

    I think these ‘friends’ and Calvin are involuntarily going to save Taylor’s image because from this piece they all seem to have gotten from her exactly what they deserve.

    And this Calvin dude is a genuine ass. To come and spill the tea after being her boyfriend, no matter how bad Taylor was is BS.
    Especially now that he is out and his life goes on undisturbed. What did she do to him that bad anyway? At first he said he broke up with her, then that she wasn’t sexual enough for him, then that she cheated, then that she wrote a song for him. Which one is it? Why is he this hurt?

  22. popup says:

    Aaaaand this is why famous people become paranoid shut-ins.

  23. Secret squirrel says:

    Taylor is mean and her squad are mean, they cancel each other out.

    Unless In Touch actually gets someone to spill and it is verified, I call BS.

    I have to say though that I don’t understand the whole “squad” situation. Taylor has set herself up as queen bee and everyone else is beneath her and must obey her every command or face the freeze out. To do this in high school is bad enough, but a 26 year old behaving like this is ridiculous.

  24. paranormalgirl says:

    Oh enough already. This is so junior high I can’t even. They ALL suffer from arrested development. Every last one of them; Taylor Swift, Calvin Harris, Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, etc. This is more than likely the last post on these narcissistic idiots I will click on.

  25. Lucy says:

    Raise your hand if you’ve been personally victimized by Taylor Swift!!

  26. LucyHoneychurch says:

    Sorry I think most of this is totally made up, especially the stuff about Selena and Kendall. We’re supposed to believe that Kendall would remain loyally by her side if she had a choice and that Taylor was the one who ended their friendship? I don’t believe that at all. If I had to guess, Kendall chose Kim and Kanye way back when and that was why she was not present at the #Taymerica Party. Also if Selena and Taylor had had a falling out, why would Selena risk her own neck in the rush to be one of her first (inadequate) defenders?

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Gigi is playing neutral third party. She seems the type to be all about her career and what is good for her even though she is supposedly genuinely close with Kendall. Look at Kris Jenner not even wanting to burn bridges. Let’s face it, all of these people realize Taylor will come back from this. She’s been bruised and bloodied but she’s not dead. Far from it. Anticipation for her next album is going to be HUGE.

  27. Bishg says:

    I don’t think it takes much to understand that Taylor’s self-proclaimed squad is just a bunch of pretty people whose level of coolness augments when they’re all together, documenting their lavish lifestyle with click-bait-y posts on Instagram. I don’t doubt that few of them might be genuinely friends (I would say Karlie Kloss and Selena Gomez), but the squad exists and survives as a vehicle of self-promotion nonetheless. And even without the need for publicity, why should they give up the opportunity given by countless events organised in luxury estates, gift bags, vacations? I don’t blame them for participating this “scam”, I wish people could see past the surface. As someone has written, celebrity is a mediated concept. What they sell is not who they really are, is what they want to feed us and what makes them rich/popular. And even so, you don’t have to be a celebrity to fall into this pattern. I know MANY people who do the same, establishing friendships with people they barely know/care about, or worse, whom they don’t even respect, just because they obtain some kind of personal benefit.
    The problem with Taylor Swift is that she went overboard. Not only does she want to be perfect and invincible all the time, she is moving strings behind the scenes like a crazy puppeteer, while at the same time pretending to be all easy-breezy and cool and WHATEVER. Even Beyoncé understood that promoting an image of infallibility and greatness at all cost can only last this much. Trust me, I am not a fan of Bey, and by no means I believe that her image is any less calculated / artificial than Taylor’s one. But she is still willing to show her a weaker side of her, more human, less superstar. This is what people appreciate.
    I’ve said it before and I will repeat it endlessly, Taylor needs to go away for a while. Even if the pap-strolls with Tom stopped (and they stopped because SHE REALISED that we are sick of it), her team is still feeding all kind of b*****t to the media. She’s playing a dangerous game. The general audience, who used to be indifferent to her, or intrigued at best, has now turned against her. Many of her rivals are ready to spill some dirt. It’s time to sit down, breathe and disappear.

    • LucyHoneychurch says:

      “Trust me, I am not a fan of Bey, and by no means I believe that her image is any less calculated / artificial than Taylor’s one. But she is still willing to show her a weaker side of her, more human, less superstar. This is what people appreciate.”

      Yeah it would not surprise me at all if Taylor took a page out of this book. She really ought to. People LOVE to build celebs up, tear them down, and then if they humble themselves sufficiently, build them back up again. It’s a crazy self perpetuating cycle.

  28. Grant says:

    Sorry, but I almost spit up my coffee at the “Taylor thinks Demi is a bad singer” comment. It’s a good night if Taylor can get through half a performance and stay on pitch. That’s just hilarious!

    • Bishg says:

      I honestly have no idea if Taylor Swift is a good singer.
      I, of course, have heard her voice on the radio and YouTube, but I am too lazy to check her live performances.
      I’ve read some bad reviews but also positive comments.
      Anyone willing to expand on that?

      • popup says:

        Hilarious. I don’t think she’s a great vocalist, but I really enjoyed her stripped down versions of a handful of 1989 songs from the Grammy Museum last year. There was some vocal manipulation/effects but I don’t think at the level of auto-tuning. She sounded great, in my opinion, but no, she does not have The Range.

      • FingerBinger says:

        Taylor Swift is a good singer but not a great singer. She’s not as good as Christina Aguilera but she’s better than Britney Spears.

  29. A. Key says:

    What “power” does she have tho? To badmouth you publicly? Ban people from working with you in the fake celeb business? Why do people even listen to her? Because she has money?? All of them are loaded, especially the Kardashian clan.
    What power does she have? I’m more afraid of Trump than TS ..

    • Aren says:

      I think it’s mainly work related. There was a country music band ages ago who said they were black-listed because they had a problem with Taylor, same goes for that VS model and a few other small stories here and there.
      It’s not just because she has money, but also because of the immaculate image. If there’s Kim and Kanye vs Taylor people were going to believe Taylor, unless there was evidence showing the opposite.
      Same for Calvin, all Taylor had to do was leak some info to make him look like a man who was trying to take advantage of her.

  30. GreenAcres says:

    All I keep thinking is that saying… With friends like these who needs enemies.

  31. detritus says:

    I want her secrets to be all bunny boiler like Portia di Rossi’s character on better off Ted:

    It is most likely regular drama though – she really did buy the house by the Kennedy boy, she said Selena deserved the clap she got from Biebs, she actually gets lipo twice yearly and she probably slept with someones boyfriend.

  32. IE says:

    I don’t know if you guys follow Karli Kloss on snapchat but she had mentioned Taylor’s name a few times. I wouldn’t say that they are completely over as a friends

  33. Bxhal says:

    1. That tabloid paper isnt telling us anything we dont know already so yeah, nice try.
    2. Til those friends actually come on out and diss her, i dont and wont believe it.
    3. Kendall Jenner and all Jenners and Kardashians are allowed to hate Taylor. Family first.
    4. Most of Taylors friends are linked to powerful persons and can help her by influencing them to help her (eg Instagram snakes being banned).
    5. Taylor says herself her weapon is to be extremely friendly to people she admires but who misunderstand her. Kill them with kindness. Which is how she got Lorde to be her friend. She was just overly kind. Is it deceptive? Maybe. Is it illegal? Hell no.

  34. what's inside says:

    Boy, it sure sounds like Taylor’s chickens are coming home to roost. Interesting all of this is happening since she dumped Calvin and got together with Tommy.

  35. me says:

    Ok if the “squad” members hated her so much, why hang with Taylor then? They weren’t obligated to be her “squad member”. This makes no sense. I think a lot of the stuff being thrown around is just gossip and lies to sell magazines. This happens to all celebs that take a hit. Kim is no stranger to this as well.

    • swak says:

      Anytime “sources” or “insiders” are quoted, I take everything with a grain of salt. If you’re not willing to put your name out there then you’re just as shady or the person/magazine/paper who is writing it is shady also.

  36. Eener says:

    The “Squad” is going to wait to talk until she quits falling. By that I mean they are going to wait till she hits the bottom and bounces a few times before coming to a stop. Then they’ll poke her with a stick just make sure they are safe. I’m just going to be patient, when the first one starts talking, they all will. The question, who’s going to be the first? My guess is Cara.

  37. Joanie says:

    Ed Sheeran must be so relieved that he’s taking a year-long break from social media…he gets to stay silent on this. He toured with her for close to a year, so I can only imagine what he knows. Tay Tay seemed to always be keeping him as a backburner romantic option to stroke her own ego.

  38. joanne says:

    i can’t believe the power that is granted to this woman. does she have magical powers? Diplo is afraid for his life? all this over some controlling, mean-girling behaviour. what are her real crimes? she may not be the most open and honest person but i don’t understand the total over reaction to her. she and Kanye have fed off each other for years. there is no need to make her evil personified.
    afraid for his life, more like he needs to get a life. i do seem to recall him trashing her first because of Kate Perry.

  39. lexx says:

    That doesn’t even make any sense because Ursula was the true hero of that movie.

  40. Brea says:

    I’m not going to lie I LOVED this delicious tea about Taylor, especially with the world news being so depressing but at this point I don’t see what all these articles about her are going to do?
    The mainstream media ganging up on her (for a good reason) is eventually going to help her when she metaphorically rises from the ashes like a phoenix with an album where (for the umpteenth time) she paints herself as the victim. She’s going to make an album of songs like “Mean” and the general public is so fickle that it’s going to forget about what kind of person she actually is.

  41. Lala says:

    this is ridiculous. taylor has good, loyal friends and i highly doubt her true real friends would sell out and snip rude, untruthful things about her

  42. rufus says:

    yall are so tired and bored with your own lives you have to go and hate on someone elses

  43. Helena says:

    So juvenile. You don’t see Adele hanging around with a *squad*. She’s like almost 30 and still in this highschool mindset, everything about it, her relationships and friendships it’s all very high school, it’s sad because this is the time most people are happy to left behind: when you grow up you finally have real people in your life, real friends and relationships. I was lucky I had that even as a teenager, because I was always bullshit free, but I know lots of 15 year olds like Taylor that only now at 25 can have a real friendship they can trust and love. Maybe she doesn’t realise what she’s missing by not growing up. I do wish her all the best and I hope someday she’ll leave highschool for real, because we need real relationships in life. About Kanye: Both him and KK look like the kind of people who love being right, I bet he’s loving every minute of it and thanks Taylor everyday for having lied about the conversation, he’s having the time of his life and so is Kim. Not sorry for him because I do believe he likes this kind of publicity.

    • Annieb says:

      I enjoyed Adele joking about her own squad in the Rolling Stone interview:

      “Besides her family, Adele mostly hangs out with a handful of close friends who date back to her teen years or earlier — one writes children’s books, another is a TV producer. “As 21 got bigger and bigger, I started getting back with all my old friends,” she says, mentioning hopes of taking them on the road if she tours. “I needed them big time.”

      So she has a squad? “I’ve heard about a squad,” she says with an amused snort. “I wish my squad was all supermodels. We are, in our brains. I guess I have my own squad.” She pronounces the word in a comical American accent. “It’s not as interesting as some of the other squads that are around right now.” She brightens. “But maybe Rihanna can be in my squad! That would be really cool. Oh, God. She’s life itself, isn’t she? I love her.”

  44. Taylor reminds me of Tracy Flick, Reese Witherspoon’s mean girl, overachieving, fake, image-obsessed, will do anything to be voted student body president, character in the movie Election.

    • KatM says:

      Good point. She is Tracy Flick on steroids. I have never understood why this female squad thing is admirable. It is not like she is running around with NASA astrophysicists. Her squad consists of all attractive people who typically hold the challenging role of dressing in lingerie and strutting down a runway. No offense to models, they are people too, but I do not understand why she is supposed to be such a shining example to young women.

    • Bonzo says:

      Yeah, I can see that.

  45. KatM says:

    Ursula is probably salivating nightly about writing revenge songs about all of her perceived enemies. I was hoping she would stay away in her undersea cave for awhile but it appears she has swam to the surface to appear again with her merman.

    Does Kendall side with Kanye because he’s her brother in law, or because he put her naked, transitioned father in a suggestive, sexual position in his video?

    That idiot is so power-hungry. Sure, TAYLOR’S the manipulative prick here. He’s not a narcissistic, mysogynist, whining man-baby. Got it.

    • LadyLoo says:

      How about TS is a manipulative, lying (I added this for accuracy) prick AND Kanye is a misogynistic man-baby.

      We don’t really have to choose in this case.

    WHERE are the memes and gifs with TS’s head imposed over Ursula’s (with TH as Flotsam and Jetsam)???!!!!

    Where are they? I need to FEED!

    • KatM says:

      Hahahaha….I know, right!!! That would hilarious. I hope that meme starts floating around soon! Maybe she will throw on some blue face paint and stalk him at Comic-Con. : )

    I feel like I just read a burn book reading those highlights. I guess high school never really ends. lol.

    The squad, Taylor, the dudes, katy, just utterly embarrassed for all if them!

    Lmao at their childish tantrums and always trying to 1up the other…at least it’s funny to laugh at how dumb they are working their place in the industry!!

    “They all have so much more dirt on her and want to reveal Taylor for who they believe she really is: a vindictive, manipulative person who runs over anyone who dares to challenge her.”

    This has been obvious for a while. She’s more transparent than she wants to believe.

    I wish they would all just go away! And maybe true talent would rise from the ashes

  52. serena says:

    “She said mean things about Selena’s past boyfriends (= Biebers)..” yeah, maybe that’s the only good thing Taylor did.

    • Ennie says:

      As if She did criticize bieber behind Selena’s back. Yeah right. I think Selena knew well what everyone thought of him.

    Maybe she played victim with them too and some of them feel betrayed because now they saw the truth. For all we know maybe she told them she never agreed to it and they rallied around her too.
