Salena Harshini |Jul 08, 2019

While Taylor Swift's latest beef with Scooter Braun is still sizzling on the Internet, let's take a look back on the top feuds in her career.

Although Taylor has never labeled as "drama queen" and was once considered the gentle country music princess, this time no one can deny that the controversies related to Taylor Swift are extremely stressful and draw a lot of attention from netizens and the media.

Of course, there is no smoke without fire. The fact that Taylor Swift is the focus of the three biggest Hollywood factions below may stem from the singer’s intention to regain her rights or respond to those who targeted her. No matter who is right or wrong, Taylor is also the focal point of these feuds.

The endless battle with Kim Kardashian - Kanye West couple

Talking about Taylor Swift's archenemy, the first to be mentioned is rapper Kanye West and his wife, “drama queen” Kim Kardashian. The story began at the 2009 VMAs when Taylor Swift was standing on the stage to receive the award Best Female Video for her famous song You Belong With Me.

It was also the most historic moment of VMA as well as Taylor Swift's singing career. Kanye West jumped from the guest line, snatched the microphone and shouted to the world that Beyoncé was the one who deserved to be the winner for Single Ladies.

That day, Taylor was not strong enough to resist, so she decided to swallow the bitter pill. She agreed to make peace with Kanye West after he expressed remorse, but perhaps it was one of the most erroneous decisions in her career.

As expected, the battle did not stop when Kanye released the controversial Famous MV. The whole netizen community went gaga again when Taylor Swift and her buddies made a fuss because the rude lyrics mentioned her: "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ Why? I made that bitch famous (God damn)/ I made that bitch famous".

The representative of Taylor denied this information. Kim immediately blamed Taylor for lying and playing victim to get pity. She also included a clip showing evidence that the singer did involve in negotiating the sensitive lyrics.

It was the drama queen who devised the powerful hashtag: #TaylorIsOverTheParty and the snake icon. Both have spread and became a major trend on social networks.

Meanwhile, there was also a big fight on social networks, between Taylor's close friends and Kardashian fierce sisters as well as the stars on the same side with them like Demi Lovato, Katy Perry...

That period can be considered the time when Taylor was the most fiercely ostracized, Taylor Swift's anti-fans took advantage of that situation to drop the snake icon all across her pictures, to the point that the female singer had to lock the comment.

Although the whole world boycotted Taylor Swift, the friend squad has never turned their back from the singer. Although notfighting directly with Taylor, they always show support for her in many major events.

Going against frenemy Katy Perry with her squad

Initially, Taylor Swift and Katy Perry were known as a famous duo in showbiz. In 2009, Swift shared on Twitter that she watching Waking Up in Vegas video of Perry and wanted to hang a poster of the singer on her wall.

Perry also responded intimately:

That year, Swift also attended Perry's 25th birthday party and posted best wishes to her.

The cause to the two beauties relationship’s downfall probably stemmed from their dating the same - singer John Mayer. Taylor Swift wrote the song Dear John referring to John Mayer when the two parted. Perry, after divorcing ex-husband Russell Brand, also dated Mayer and broke up after a year together.

The story later became clearer when the country music singer condemned that Katy Perry stole her dancers when she was on an arena tour. Swift assumed that Perry wanted to sabotage her tour and since then, both have been not been in a good term.

Instead of acting feeble and vulnerable as before, Taylor began to reprimand Katy Perry. Celebrities like Karlie Kloss, Cara Delevingne, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid,... who are all powerful models and have a significant influence in the fashion industry also pulled an oar in going against Katy Perry.

In an interview with Rolling Stone in 2014, Swift shared that the song Bad Blood was about an anonymous singer in the music industry. She also recalled that Perry had stolen her dancers and even avoided the Roar singer for that reason.

However, the two singers have been seen mending their broken friendship as they sent each other heartwarming gifts and Katy even made an appearance in Taylor’s newest MV You Need To Calm Down.

Public beef with Justin Bieber on social networks

It started when Taylor Swift exposed her slave contract with Big Machine Records, or more specifically, with manager Scooter Braun. More notably, the picture that the 30-year-old singer used as an illustration was nothing more than the Taylor-bullies picture shared by Justin Bieber on Instagram.

Scooter Braun is now still Justin Bieber's manager. When his name and manager were all squished by a bad reason, Justin Bieber decided to respond to Taylor Swift:

Once again, the showbiz battle brought Taylor Swift's name to the top 1 trending of Twitter. However, this time it is no longer a wave of boycotting, the public finally chose to stand by the Blank Space singer with the hashtag #WeStandTaylorSwift.

A series of Hollywood stars immediately unfollowed Scooter Braun on social networks like Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Selena Gomez, Britney Spears, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Lopez,...

It is not that no celebrity supports Justin, but that amount is so small that it is not worth comparing with the large and powerful forces of the other side.
