Factory-defected robot doll Taylor Swift from earlier this week is here once again, and this time she’s brought her arch nemesis with her. And it’s…Taylor Swift. It was my understanding the old Taylor was dead. Who is this second Taylor? Did the death of one Taylor mean the birth of two, like a joint snake myth? Just when I thought we were done with the whole tired snake thing.
When the Beyhive saw a teaser clip of Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” music video, they angrily buzzed, “Look at the Rachel Roy take-down you’re about to make me do!!!” Taylor had the audacity to stand front and center in a line-up of her dancers, which had never been done by a pop star until Beyoncé Queen of the Universe and Our Lord and Savior Knowles-Carter Christ deemed it necessary to do in her video for “Formation.” I really wish it had just ended there, but (to borrow a favorite Dlisted phrase) the Butterscotch Don pulled her foundation move and sent in a minion to fight her battle.
Music video director Joseph Kahn first told people to take a seat and wait until the vid came out and recognize that no one was ripping off Beyoncé. And then it ended there, and people went along with their lives.
Wrong! It keeps going.
Gigi Hadid, Selena Gomez, Karlie Kloss, Todrick Hall, and the Haim sisters all better start thinking about putting in some overtime friendship hours with Taylor Swift, because Joseph Kahn appears to be gunning hard for the title of Most Valuable Squad Member.
Despite a claim that perpetually-disgruntled rap superstar Kanye West is over feuding with serpentine arch-enemy Taylor Swift, his top might say differently. (By “top,” I mean his t-shirt, not Ricardo Tisci.)
