Troian Bellisario Drags Taylor Swift for Her ‘False Feminism’
During what could be Taylor Swift’s worst month of press ever, yet another celebrity has come forward to call out the singer’s problematic ways.
When recently asked about the ongoing feud between Swift and Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, Pretty Little Liars star Troian Bellisario didn’t hold back her opinions. Though she’s not on Team Kimye, she admitted that Swift’s no saint as well.
“Oh god, I have such an aversion to the Kardashians because I literally don’t understand people’s obsession with them and I don’t want to accept them as our closest thing to a royal family, so I guess I would be Team Taylor Swift?” she told Cosmopolitan. “However, I’m so appalled by what I consider to be her false feminism.”
She explained, “It seems like she’s this person who’s like, ‘Sisterhood!’ and then she does nothing but tear down the women that were once her friends.”
Of course, this was not the first time someone called out Swift’s questionable sense of feminism. After Swift (obliviously and without cause) called out Nicki Minaj for pitting “women against each other” last year, Katy Perry subtweeted a response calling out the irony of the songstress shaming Minaj for allegedly instigating a girl-on-girl spat when she was making money off her video for “Bad Blood,” a song about her feud with Perry.
“Finding it ironic to parade the pit women against other women argument about as one unmeasurably capitalizes on the take down of a woman,” Perry wrote on Twitter.
Camilla Belle, who Swift slut-shamed in “Better Than Revenge” by singing that she’s more known for “the things she does on the mattress” than being an actress, added at the time, “Couldn’t have said it better…”
Swift has never publicly apologized for either song. The songstress has only commented on “Better Than Revenge” by saying, “I was 18 when I wrote that. That’s the age you are when you think someone can actually take your boyfriend. Then you grow up and realize no one can take someone from you if they don’t want to leave.”
