So, what was REALLY up with Tori Kelly’s reaction to Taylor Swift shading Kanye West at the Grammys? HollywoodLife.com has learned EXCLUSIVELY what she was thinking — and whether or not it had to do with her loyalty to Justin Bieber.
“It definitely wasn’t meant to be any type of shade,” a source close to the singer tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Phew! That’s great to hear, because Taylor and Tori are both so talented and there is no need for them to be beefing — even if they aren’t friends in real-life.

However, our source also shared that, “Tori is definitely Team [Justin] Bieber and will take his side in their feud and may not like Taylor because of her ties with Justin, but she wasn’t throwing shade to Taylor‘s speech. It was just bad timing! She hates that it has become a thing.”
Of course, there is no way Tori could have known the camera would be panning to her during Taylor’s speech. Ever since, her “unimpressed” expression has gone viral on social media.
“Tori regrets not keeping her game face on, but she never expected it to become such a big deal,” the source also shared. They explained to HollywoodLife.com that even though “she doesn’t want to put negative vibes out there,” Taylor definitely isn’t a part of her squad because the “Hollow” singer will forever be loyal to Justin.
