Taylor Swift Has Perfect Response To Rumors She Kisses Katy Perry In Upcoming Music Video
Okay, the whisp is basically just turning into a Taylor Swift stan site and you heard it here first. ICYMI: there were rumors that Tay and newly-reconciled friend Katy Perry would be sharing a smooch in the upcoming “You Need To Calm Down” music video with Katy dressed in her iconic Met Gala burger costume and the “ME!” singer dressed as fries. NGL, the idea doesn’t even sound *that* cute, so there were already doubts cast on this rumor — though they appeared to originate in a podcast called “What’s Your Jersey” where the host, Jaclyn Marfuggi, says her friend worked on Taylor’s music video.
“He said it’s her and Katy Perry and they’re dressed up in the Katy Perry Met Gala burger outfit and Taylor, I think, is dressed up as french fries and they kiss. It’s supposed to be a whole Pride video thing. I don’t know how I feel about this,” she claimed. Some guessed (and hoped) that the person who said this was confused by a video that had recently surfaced on TMZ where Katy and Celine Dion share a peck at the Met Gala, but it could also just be pure, unadulterated Hollywood gossip — especially because Taylor Swift herself just shut down the rumors via Tumblr.
A fan messaged the superstar writing, “you do know there’s a leaked concept that you and katy dress as fries and a burger and kiss. you do know that’s dumb, right? … if there is indeed a scene like that, you need to cut it right now before it airs because it’s genuinely a really bad idea. seriously. [sic].” Taylor, who is celebrating today’s release of “You Need To Calm Down” quickly replied and, we’ve got to say, her response was absolutely perfect.
“Guys. That is ABSOLUTELY false. To be an ally is to understand the difference between advocating and baiting. Anyone trying to twist this positivity into something it isn’t needs to calm down. It costs zero dollars to not step on our gowns.”
So let me get this straight? Not only is Taylor Swift advocating for LGBTQ+ rights like crazy lately, but she’s also doing it in a thoughtful way? Full tea, full shade, we love the poster child for queerbaiting Nick Jonas, but he should sit down with Taylor and learn what he did wrong now that Tay and Joe Jonas are back on good terms. AMIRIGHT?
