Hmm…perhaps Taylor Swift actually WASN’T trying to shade Avril Lavigne by liking that Tumblr post. It turns out that Katy Perry and Kanye West were also included in the viral collage of celebs posing awkwardly with fans — could Tay have been trying to diss her known nemeses’ instead?
When Avril Lavigne, 30, bashed Taylor Swift, 25, for apparently dissing her on Tumblr, it sparked an outrageous war between fans who took sides on Twitter. But it may not have been Avril who the “Style” singer was trying to shade…because Katy Perry, 30, and Kanye West, 38, were also called out in the Tumblr post that Tay showed her approval for by liking!
Okay, let’s refresh. Avril took to Twitter to totally bash Taylor for ‘liking’ a collage on Tumblr. The post featured photos of herself, Kanye, Katy and Britney Spears, all having awkward encounters with fans during meet and greets, and compared the pics to those of Taylor being overly affectionate with her fans in similar situations.
“Comparison is judging and judging a person does not define who they are it defines who you are,” Avril tweeted, seemingly shading Taylor for approving of the post. “We all love our fans. So let’s keep it all about the love and stay positive.” But perhaps Avril shouldn’t have taken it so personal, because Taylor has actually had beef with both Katy and Kanye, so if she was trying to shade anyone in the collage, maybe it was them — not her!?
Really, though, it seems like the 25-year-old was mostly just trying to show her appreciation for whoever took note of how much she puts into her relationships with fans.We know Taylor LOVES lurking on Tumblr, and it’s likely she didn’t even pay any notice to who else was featured in the photo. She was just trying to point out how much she loves her fans, you guys!
Tell us, HollywoodLifers: DO you think Taylor was trying to shade Katy and Kanye (or anyone for that matter) by liking the Instagram post?
