Karlie Kloss did a selfie with Taylor Swift at her Nashville concert: what happened?

Well well. Karlie Kloss was in Nashville this weekend, and she seemingly traveled down there simply to attend Taylor Swift’s concert, the Nashville stop on the Reputation Tour. This is the first time Karlie and Taylor have been seen together or photographed together in a year or longer. WHAT IS HAPPENING?? Karlie’s really just going to show up at Taylor’s concert like nothing happened??

I’ve always said that the initial “breakup” of Karlie and Taylor happened during the Summer of Receipts/Tiddlebanging, which was the summer of 2016. Karlie is somewhat friendly with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, and Karlie wasn’t one of of the Snake Fam taking out a Snake Fatwa against Kimye in the wake of the receipts. Still, Karlie and Taylor were still in each other’s orbits after that. Then they barely saw each other throughout 2017, and by February of this year, the breakup looked like it had taken hold. I even believed that it wasn’t simply a “growing apart” of two friends – it seemed like there were truly hurt feelings and an honest-to-God falling out. Consider this: Taylor STILL has not made any kind of public acknowledgement of Karlie’s engagement. All of Karlie’s other friends did.

So what happened? My theory is that the breakup happened, there was a falling out and they barely spoke to each other for a year or longer. And then I think Karlie chose to be “the bigger person,” and she called Taylor. That’s my guess – they only way Taylor would reconnect with a girlfriend she froze out is if the girlfriend made the effort. Because Tay really is a cold-blooded snake.

    I mean, Taylor didn’t publicly comment on Karlie’s engagement, but she doesn’t really publicly comment on a lot these days. No magazine interviews, limited pap shots, she’s taken her personal life off insta and Twitter. Just as likely that she privately congratulated Karlie IMO.

    • Lucy2 says:

      Probably. Just because it didn’t happen on social media doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. Maybe that was what got them talking again?

    • Vv says:

      she put Katy Perry’s apology flowers on her IG stories and congratulated Selena on her birthday so… you know… some thing are still worth being public about I guess ;)

    • Rescue Cat says:

      She went quite on social media when she realized she couldn’t compete with Trump.

    • Nerdista says:

      I think Karlie is who Nice Things is about. I think she’s desperate to be friends with Taylor again and showed up at the concert. I don’t think Taylor looks happy in that pic! It’s possible that TS isn’t always the asshole.

  2. Jane says:

    Or maybe Taylor reached out to Katie?

    Like everything is possible.

    • Jadedone says:

      Or maybe there was no “break up”

    • Tiffany :) says:

      Yeah, these kinds of articles are becoming increasingly silly. There isn’t “only” one possibility of how this played out. The stretch to paint Taylor as terrible, even during non-events like this, is getting to be too much.

  3. anna2222222 says:

    If Karlie’s marrying into the Kushner family, she’ll be looking for all the positive press she can get. And while we’re all judging her, outside the internet gossip bubble she still has a huge fan base. There’s a special place in hell for privileged beautiful white women who don’t help other privileged beautiful white women, or something.

  4. Jess says:

    Or maybe they simply stopped acknowledging each other publicly to stop feeding the trolls… And those that believe in all the conspiracy theories. Karlie was dating her boyfriend before even meeting Taylor, yet people still insist that he is a beard, etc. It must be exhausting

    • Crumbs says:

      I would hope they’re not that bothered by the fact that some people think they’re gay. I mean, I see more people convinced Nick Jonas is gay (even on here). I would assume celebrities don’t look at fan comments on their social media.

  5. Steph says:

    There wasn’t a “break up ” karlie kept liking Taylor’s pics and some kaylor asked Karlies father or something some time ago, and he said that ” the girls are alright ” or something.

  6. Udi says:

    I don’t buy into the narrative how Taylor is a petty snake. For what’s it worth she puts on a show of gratitude and adoration for her fans. She is kind and humble in her interactions. Just because Kim, a woman with no credibility whatsoever, posts a botched clip about how Taylor is a manipulating bitch because she said yes to one line preceding the problematic one in Kanye’s song we jump on to villify her. We don’t know if she was aware of the nude wax figurine or the bitch line. She must have been taken aback. She must have been expecting the line about how he wishes they still had sex because it is tongue in cheek just as Taylor said in the clip. As for her not denouncing the nazi crowd, I really feel queasy but along with the cease and desist letter to the small blog she did send another one to Breitbart which wasn’t publicised because the ACLU wasn’t involved. But she needs to vocally denounce them anyway.
    But this Kaylor controversy is really really intrusive and bad. Dissecting someone’s sexuality is never a nice thing. Even if she were gay if is her prerogative if she wants to come out or not. Speculation on such an intimate topic is distasteful.

    • Babs says:

      I totally agree with you on the Kaylor thing. However, Taylor Swift is a petty snake who is all about white privilege and used it to frame Kanye.

      I think Taylor is very kind to her fans and to the people she loves. I don’t think she’s a bad person by any stretch. But I also think there’s plenty of evidence she can be calculating, petty, and hold grudges like no one else. She contains multitudes, lol.

  7. Case says:

    I’m fascinated by this weird situation. After being VERY LOUD about their friendship for many years, post-Hiddleswift and Taymerica 2016 they seemingly decided to completely stop talking about each other and being seen together in public. It seemed drastic and odd, but I guess Taylor’s “squad” was getting a lot of criticism at the time. Maybe Karlie wanted to be taken more seriously and distance herself from it all.

    Honestly? I think Taylor made a huge spectacle about all areas of her life that summer to A) distract from the Kimye drama and B) to purposefully become so overexposed and publicly criticized that she could create her next album narrative of “Look how I need to hide away! This is why I try to be so ‘private!’ I can’t live a normal life, so sad!” JMO. Every move she makes is purposeful so that it can be incorporated into her next album and her fans can put the pieces together.

  8. Amelie says:

    Yeah Taylor is the kind of person who will not apologize because she always sees herself as the wronged party. Katy Perry was the bigger person and who finally sent her an apology which she probably intended to be private. But Taylor, being the pettiest person I think I have ever seen (apart from Donald Trump), put it on her Instagram stories for the whole world to see. To show the “proof” that Katy was wrong and that she was right. She made an entire song and music video about how Katy “stole” her dancers. She even mentioned it in an interview for crying out loud! No she didn’t mention Katy’s name but from context it was easy to guess who it was about and Katy confirmed it later on.

    So whatever happened between Taylor and Karlie, Karlie decided to be the bigger person and apologize. We’ll see if Taylor is actually invited to the wedding.

  9. Megan says:

    Karlie needed the top google result to stop saying “Kushner” when you searched her name . She came crawling to Taylor with her tail between her legs, which is why TayTay obliged. This is a publicity stunt for both of them 100%.

    • Jegede says:


      People are remiss to that point that Karlie Kloss is also an opportunist.

      Ever since she signed up with Justin Bieber’s manager, Kloss pap walk appearances in mags and blogs has shot up.
      Taylor is on a record breaking tour, it benefits Karlie to reinstate the ‘friendship’.

    • NΞΞNΔ ZΞΞ says:

      100 percent. Girlfriend has made a living as the All American Girl Next Door model but her engagement has put an inconvenient spotlight on the cesspool of moral bankruptcy and con artistry she’s marrying into. I heard from a very reliable source that the wedding planning is getting very ugly… her soon-to-be father-in-law is a convicted felon, her brother-in-law will probably be indicted soon by the special counsel, and then there’s Complicit Barbie. And if Bigly attends the wedding a lot of celebs and famous guests probably won’t show. Instead of making it a small, private event she’s still holding out hope for a major, high-profile affair… I think this is about changing the focus of the news cycle.

    I think most people have had a huge falling out with a friend in their 20′s, I know I had a few. Not all of them were due to a huge argument but sometimes feelings got hurt and hurt and hurt until you threw up your hands, walked away and didn’t talk to them again. There was one friend this happened with and every few years we make an attempt at restarting our friendship. I do truly miss and love her but she treated me like an afterthought and it always ends up breaking my heart.
    I feel like this happened with Karlie and Taylor. Resentment built up slowly on one side (I’m going to say Karlie’s) because of bad treatment and she just gave up the friendship and moved on. Doesn’t mean these two don’t still look back on the hey day of their relationship and want that back and miss it. Doesn’t mean they don’t still have love. Might just mean that past issues are too much to be real friends again.
    I think too many people look too far into their friendship and the people who snarkily comment about these two hiding that they’re gay is incredibly rude. Don’t speculate on people’s sexuality, please.

    • Case says:

      Agreed. I’m in my late 20s and even though I honestly NEVER had much friend drama in my early years and consider myself non-confrontational, I’ve had two full-blown falling outs with people I thought I’d be friends with forever. I cut off both of them and haven’t spoken to them in quite some time. It makes me sad sometimes, but in your 20s personality differences and lifestyle differences come into sharp focus and often tear people apart.

      • leskat says:

        Exactly! I don’t think it’s realistic to think that every single friend you have in your 20′s will follow you throughout your life and you’ll always be super close. Just like a romantic relationship, sometimes it just doesn’t work out because people grow at different rates and you’re not always in the same place, mentally.

    So over the Taylor is the worst person ever crap. I’m not even a swiftie but some of sound like you need jesus… Fast

  12. nikki says:

    Rumor in the blinds is that it was a relationship-relationship …

  13. Stormi says:

    Or maybe Taylor employed her as a friend during the 1989 era. Era over no longer needed. I don’t know why anyone takes these Hollywood friendships seriously. Karlie simply wanted to attend the concert after she heard the record breaking numbers. It’s not like they were out and about as friends getting dinner, etc. She went to her concert like 60k other people each tour stop have. One concert at almost the end of the tour. Certainly didn’t break her neck to see her “friend”. Took her sweet time. So just say they aren’t friends and more acquaintances.

    Remember it was announced that Taylor broke her own record for highest grossing female tour in the US on August 21. Then karlie happens to make it to the very next show available which was august 25 in Nashville. She’s managed by Scooter Braun and they do anything for press.

    Kaylor lives!!!

  15. Ellie says:

    So many people thought/think that Taylor and Karlie are genuinely dating. It started on social media then the rumors started spreading to the main media outlets so Taylor and Karlie’s publicists had to tell them that they can’t be seen together so frequently in public anymore. That makes sense because even if they aren’t really dating, it shuts down unwanted rumors and it clearly worked since everything thought they had been fighting.

  16. Jenni says:

    Are you mad that she’s straight
