What the heck is going on here?! Justin Bieber shared a video singing one of Taylor Swift’s songs on May 23, but we got the feeling he was making fun of her. Then, Taylor confused us all by ‘liking’ the vid! Is she dissing him, or is this a sort of olive branch? Here’s the scoop.
Okay, we’re officially confused. Everyone knows Taylor Swift, 26, and Justin Bieber, 22, aren’t each other’s biggest fans, so when Justin shared a video singing Tay’s song on May 23 we were confounded. Then, to make matters crazier, Taylor “liked” his video! Is this all love or some serious passive-aggression? Here’s what we know.
We’re not sure what to make of this! Justin shared a video on Instagram on May 23 singing Taylor’s “Teardrops On My Guitar”, and then she went ahead and hit “like” on the vid! He mouthed the lyrics to the chorus, and was smiling during the part that says “Drew walks by me, can he tell that I can’t breathe? And there he goes, so perfectly, The kind of flawless I wish I could be. She’d better hold him tight, give him all her love. Look in those beautiful eyes and know she’s lucky cause…”
We should also mention that Justin had shared another video where he and his friend kept asking “Do you even know Drew?” seemingly mocking the subject of the hit song. You may remember that Drew was Taylor’s first love in high school, and it was completely unrequited, so we thought Justin was making fun of TayTay by poking at a sore subject. However, he could just be joking because his middle name is also Drew, so is he just messing around pretending the lyrics are about him? Taylor only “liked” the video of him singing.
So, what does this mean? Was she trying to be proactive and show fans that she didn’t take his video as a diss? Did she genuinely like that he was singing her song? Or was she passive-aggressively dissing him herself? IT’S SO HARD TO TELL!
We’re inclined to think Taylor is dissing the Biebs with the like, because these two notoriously dislike one another. Naturally, Taylor can’t like someone who has put her best friend Selena Gomez through so much heartache, and Justin often feels that Taylor is keeping Selena away from him. We hope it’s more of a truce than a diss, but we’re sure the answer will become clear!
