Bad Blood: Celebrities Who Can’t Stand Taylor Swift

Darren January 10, 2024

It’s no secret that Taylor Swift is a force of nature right now. The pop icon is one of the most successful artists with dozens of awards and legions of fans. She has an estimated net worth of over a billion dollars and is one of the most influential A-listers in the world. But despite all those accolades many of her fellow celebrities can’t stand her.

So today we’ll look at her feuds with other celebs. There are many. We’ll be looking at resentful ex-boyfriends and Swift’s jealous competition. The sheer number of haters is incredible because they can’t stand her. It’s lonely being at the top of the mountain, as she’s discovered. Check out the celebs who hate Swift right here.

John Mayer

Swift famously had her first celebrity relationship with fellow pop star Mayer. At the time, he was more famous than her but she has since eclipsed him by a wide margin. The pair broke up after five months but Mayer provided cannon fodder for Swift’s songs. She infamously wrote about him in the song ‘Dear John.’ Later, Swift intervened to stop her fans abusing him on Twitter.

Billboard

Mayer said that it humiliated him (via The Richest). He explained: “I will say as a songwriter that I think it’s kind of cheap songwriting. I know she’s the biggest thing in the world, and I’m not trying to sink anybody’s ship, but I think it’s abusing your talent to rub your hands together and go, ‘Wait till he gets a load of this!'”

Nicki Minaj

In 2015, Minaj made it obvious that she had no time for Swift. Things exploded after Swift’s video for ‘Bad Blood’ received a VMA nomination. However, this irritated Minaj who felt that there was an agenda against her. She tweeted: “If your video celebrates women with very slim bodies, you will be nominated for vid of the year.”

Swift rebuked her for pitting women against each other and it seemed like the story fizzled out. But then Minaj began discussing further about racism in the industry with Piers Morgan and Katy Perry involving themselves. It was a messy situation and showed why people can’t stand Swift (via Billboard).

Justin Bieber

It’s no surprise that Bieber doesn’t have the best relationship with Swift because of his relationship with Selena Gomez. The pair had a dramatic public relationship and now Gomez is arguably Swift’s closest celebrity confidante. However, she reportedly can’t stand Bieber, who even made her cry.

Esquire

The Beebs pranked her on Punk’d in 2012. They blew up a boat and he pretended there was a wedding on it. Then they carried on the lie for too long and had Swift in emotional ruins. Meanwhile, Bieber was on the other side of the Scooter Braun war so they openly despised each other (via Nicki Swift).

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler

Everybody knows that Swift doesn’t have much respect for Fey and Poehler. That’s because the pair mocked her relationships when they hosted the Golden Globes. This rubbed Swift up the wrong way and she even responded to their comments.”There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women,” Swift famously told Vanity Fair.

Vanity Fair

However, this is nonsense because the pair have done incredible work to enhance respect for female comics. Furthermore, they also have charities for young girls. They clearly can’t stand Swift because Fey also made a joke about Poehler going to hell after her partner won her first Golden Globe.

Chloe Grace Moretz

Taylor’s Squad is like the ultimate sorority group with members including Gigi Hadid, Selena Gomez, and Martha Hunt. However, Moretz is one talented Hollywood actress who wants no part of it. She attracted heat after revealing she rejected an invitation to join the exclusive club (via Complex).

Glamour

Moretz said: “They appropriate exclusivity. They’re cliques.” However, she refused to expand further in the interview despite making it clear that she can’t stand them. Later, she defended her comments and said that she wasn’t hating on Swift as an individual. Her fans respected her stance because it was very brave.

Carrie Underwood

There was a time when Underwood and Swift were two of the biggest names in country music. Now Underwood owns that world while Swift transcended it to become a pop icon. However, they reportedly can’t stand each other although tensions may be cooling between them (via Nicki Swift).

Sports Illustrated

Things reached a head after Underwood joked about Swift’s relationship with Conor Kennedy. They reportedly asked to sit far from each other at the 2013 Grammies. It’s wrong to say that they had a bad relationship because they didn’t have one at all. Underwood has said some nice things about Swift in recent years.

Joe Jonas

Jonas is another of Swift’s exes who can’t stand her now. He once tweeted: “I’m not going to openly say, ‘This person is a b*tch, and she did this to me. I don’t feel the need to do that to sell records.” The pair don’t like each other and Jonas resents that she wrote songs about him.

Glamour

Their toxic relationship deteriorated even further in 2023 after Jonas split with his wife Sophie Turner. Swift instantly entered the picture and provided support for the former Game of Thrones actress. They spent significant time together as their fanbases cast Jonas as the villain in the situation (via Glamour).

Diplo

It may seem ridiculous that anybody would body shame Swift because she’s a beautiful young woman. However, she has attracted criticism from several celebrities because she’s successful and skinny. Nicki Minaj famously had a spat with the ‘Evermore’ singer but Diplo also showed that he can’t stand her.

Complex

He tweeted in 2014: “Someone should make a Kickstarter to get Taylor Swift a booty.” The DJ didn’t realize how passionate the Swifties were because he threw gas on the fire. They passionately defended their pop princess on the Internet and made life incredibly difficult for him for a while.

Kim Kardashian

There’s no lost love between Kardashian and Swift despite being two of the most powerful A-listers in the world. Kardashian can’t stand Swift and called her a liar. The reality star said that Swift knew that her ex-husband Kanye West would include explicit lyrics about her in a song. However, Swift flatly denied this.

NME

Kardashian said: “She totally knew that that was coming out. She wanted to all of a sudden act like she didn’t. I swear, my husband gets so much s*** for things when he really was doing proper protocol and even called to get it approved. What rapper would call a girl that he was rapping a line about to get approval?”

Jessica Hart

One Victoria’s Angel found herself on Swift’s bad side and now she can’t stand her. It happened after Swift made her catwalk debut at the 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. This is one of the most iconic fashion events of the year and it was a massive deal when Swift made her walk.

Page Six

Hart reacted in the most patronizing way possible. She said: “God bless her heart. I think she’s great. But I don’t know, to me, she didn’t fit.” The following year, Swift’s team allegedly blocked Hart from participating in the fashion show. This proves that Swift has a petty streak and she’s not afraid to show it (via WWD).

Scooter Braun

To say that Braun can’t stand Swift is possibly the understatement of the century. The 2019 beef between the two ignited a civil war at the top of the music industry. Heavyweights including Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande remained under contract with the music titan until 2023. It came after Braun took control of Swift’s albums against her will.

Esquire

“All I could think about was the incessant, manipulative bullying I’ve received at his hands for years,” she wrote on Tumbler (via Us Magazine). “Now Scooter has stripped me of my life’s work, that I wasn’t given an opportunity to buy. Essentially, my musical legacy is about to lie in the hands of someone who tried to dismantle it. This is my worst-case scenario.”

Troian Bellisario

This Pretty Little Liars star made waves when she openly criticized the Kardashians and Taylor Swift in 2016. First, she disparaged the Kardashians as being like the royal family. Then she went in hard on what she perceived as Swift’s fake feminism. Later, she backtracked but the damage was already done.

CNN

Bellisario said: “I’m so appalled by what I consider to be her false feminism. 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 (via E! News).” She can’t stand fake people but Swift’s fans didn’t respect her opinion.

Calvin Harris

Harris joined the long list of Swift’s exes after they broke up in 2016. They were together for 15 months before they called it quits. Initially, everything seemed amicable but then it became toxic. Most of her ex-boyfriends can’t stand her writing songs about them and Harris was no exception.

Vanity Fair

The British DJ tweeted (via People): “I figure if you’re happy in your new relationship you should focus on that instead of trying to tear your ex-bf down for something to do. I know you’re off tour, and you need someone new to try and bury like Katy, etc., but I’m not that guy. Sorry, I won’t allow it.”

Lorde

Reportedly, Lorde and Swift are friends but it may be a one-sided relationship. That’s because the New Zealand songstress has some very weird views about her connection to Nashville’s queen. She said that it was like having a friendship with someone who had an autoimmune disease.

Mashable

Later, she backtracked but the damage was done. Lorde said (via Mashable): “It’s like having a friend with very specific allergies. There are certain places you can’t go together. Certain things you can’t do. There are these different sets of considerations within the friendship.”

Drake Bell

Many people won’t remember who Bell is but he built his early career on Nickelodeon. There was a time when folks cared about his opinions despite his obnoxious behavior. At one party, he showed that he had no respect for Swift as he slut-shamed her for dating Harry Styles (via Hollywood Life).

Hollywood Reporter

Bell said: “Taylor Swift? Is she making the rounds? She has been making the rounds.” Many men can’t stand successful women being open about their relationships and confident dating who they want. Bell fell into this category and eventually slipped into obscurity before an arrest for endangering children in 2021.

Camilla Belle

After Joe Jonas dumped Swift, he moved on quickly and began a relationship with Belle. However, Swift didn’t take this kindly and she wrote about the couple in the lyrics of her song ‘Better Than Revenge.’ The explicit lyrics hinted that Belle was known more for her efforts in the bedroom than for acting.

Showbiz Cheat Sheet

Belle didn’t appreciate and reportedly can’t stand Swift now (via GQ). She also wrote a cryptic message on Instagram: “No need for revenge. Just sit back & wait. Those who hurt you will eventually screw up themselves & if you’re lucky, God will let you watch.” It’s safe to say that she thinks Swift is a disgusting hypocrite.

Demi Lovato

Lovato notoriously can’t stand Swift and is very open about this. The former Disney star once had a good relationship with Selena Gomez but it broke down when Swift entered the picture. Lovato isn’t shy about their feelings regarding Swift and infamously shredded Swift’s career tactics in a radio interview with Billy Bush.

Rolling Stone

The former Camp Rock star said (via Buzzfeed): “A lot of celebrities don’t open up to their fans, they just tell them what they want to hear. They don’t really tell them things that can benefit their lives, they just, you know, maybe flaunt around a boyfriend and sell a couple of albums. That’s not what my career is about.”

Father John Misty

Fans know Joshua Tillman better by his stage name Father John Misty. The singer-songwriter is one of the most successful indie artists of the modern era with many diverse achievements. However, he doesn’t have the best image of Swift or what she represents. He once attended one of her concerts in Australia while he was on LSD.

Tillman said: There was a disturbing aspect, this insistence on telling girls, ‘I’m normal, don’t let anyone tell you what you should be.’ If you wanted to curate an evening with the Grand Leader, this is what you would do. It’s a very, very false normal. And that’s dangerous (via Pitchfork).”

Kanye West

Many celebrities can’t stand Swift but West took this to new levels. He infamously rapped about her in his song ‘Famous’ with the lyrics: “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/Why? I made that b***h famous.” But this is only a taste of his horrific treatment of the Folklore singer (via People).

Rolling Stone

Nobody will forget the moment he stormed the stage during the VMAs in 2009. Meanwhile, West secretly recorded a phone call with Swift and also included a nude sculpture of her in a video. Swift said that the phone recording mentally affected her and caused serious trust issues moving forward in all of her relationships.

Michael J. Fox

It’s difficult to imagine Swift getting on the wrong side of Marty McFly but somehow she achieved this. In short, he didn’t respect the way that she achieved fame by singing about her exes. He told Vulture (via CBS News): “I don’t keep up with it all. But Taylor Swift writes songs about everybody she goes out with, right? Right! What a way to build a career.”

Town And Country

Then he made further disparaging comments about not wanting her to date his son Sam. Later, Swift cleared the air by saying that Fox reached out to apologize. He also claimed that the media misquoted him but this doesn’t seem true. Many celebrities can’t stand Swift so it’s not shocking.

Hailey Bieber

It’s no secret that Justin Bieber’s wife Hailey hates Swift too. A video resurfaced in 2023 of the model pretending to gag after someone mentioned Taylor’s lyrics. She also directly faced Swift as she stood with her husband during the Scooter Braun feud. It was a massive deal at the time as it pitted fanbases against each other.

This is very petty and the main reason why Bieber can’t stand Swift is because of her husband. In another life, there’s a solid chance that she would also be a member of Taylor’s Squad. However, she found herself on the other side of the fence and it doesn’t look like changing anytime soon (via Teen Vogue).

Ed Droste

Former Grizzly Bear frontman Droste made his feelings about Swift clear. He described her as the rudest, fakest person that he ever met and also attacked ‘the Squad.’ Needless to say, the Swifties went after him like the Spanish Inquisition until he finally deleted his social media accounts (via Stereo Gum).

Rolling Stone

Droste tweeted: “Obsessed that people are catching on… I think this article sums up how people who are ‘taken’ really feel… she’s been given a free pass for too long. Plus, first-hand experience… I have a whole other story to tell, still feels unsafe tho. She frightens me genuinely.”

Karlie Kloss

There was a time when Kloss and Swift were inseparable. Tay-Tay’s friendship with the supermodel was so strong that it even raised eyebrows. Some people thought that they had a secret romantic relationship but this was never proven. However, it appears that there’s trouble in paradise and that they can’t stand each other now.

They vacationed together and shared the catwalk but now they never hang out. Meanwhile, Kloss fails to invite Swift to her wedding as a sign that their bond has broken down. Then there was more drama when Kloss appeared on Scooter Braun’s Instagram after he feuded with Swift (via Cosmopolitan).

Amber Rose

Rose doesn’t have the best relationship with her ex Kanye West. However, this makes it even more interesting that she defended him from Tay-Tay when she complained about the ‘Famous’ lyrics. She hinted that Swift knew what was going to happen and that she had a severe impact on West’s mental health.

Hollywood Reporter

The model said: “I know that Kanye would never ever go through that again by not calling Taylor and say, ‘Heads up, I’m about to go write this verse real quick. Just wanted to make sure you’re cool with it.’ I know that about Kanye.” She can’t stand the most famous singer of our generation (via Hola).

Miley Cyrus

It’s safe to say that Cyrus isn’t on Swift’s Christmas card list. The former Disney starlet can’t stand Swift and allegedly calls her the ‘ice princess.’ She reportedly also said that Swift bored Harry Styles out of bed because she’s so uptight. For her part, Swift allegedly has disdain for Cyrus’ provocative aesthetic and thinks she’s cheap.

Glamour Mexico

Meanwhile, Cyrus mocked the so-called squad and essentially called them fake. She told OK Magazine (via People): “I’m not trying to be in the squad. None of my friends are famous and not because of any other reason than I just like real people who are living real lives, because I’m inspired by them.”

Katy Perry

Most people would think that Perry and Swift would be friends but they can’t stand each other. They’ve feuded on and off for over a decade with occasional truces along the way. Perry says that Swift is cold and has even subtly insulted her. But her biggest issue was when Swift reportedly committed an unforgivable business move.

Time

The ‘Firework’ singer explained (via The Guardian): “She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me. And I’m surprisingly non-confrontational — you would not believe how much I hate conflict. So now I have to avoid her. It’s awkward, and I don’t like it.”
