2015 was one hell of a year for celebrity friendships, wasn’t it? Taylor Swift was the reigning queen supreme of the all-mighty girl squad with members including famous singers, models, actresses, athletes and so forth.
Whenever there was a hot Hollywood event, awards show or red carpet, Taylor was always accompanied by at least three or more of the famous folk who she had cherry-picked for her girl gang.
Members included Selena Gomez, Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid, Lili Aldridge, Martha Hunt, the Haim sisters, Jaime King, Hailee Steinfeld, Lena Dunham, Lorde, Cara Delevingne, Blake Lively and many, many more.
Then following Snapchat Gate in 2016 which saw Taylor fall from grace, the girl squad disbanded and the once almighty singer was cast out into the shadows and no longer associated with the group that she had formed.
Upon her return to the spotlight, Swift released a track about the whole shebang called ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ and the video featured nods to only several of the aforementioned mates, revealing to fans that she’d cut off a great number of her former friends.
One such friend is Karlie Kloss who is heavily rumoured to be on the outs with Tay Tay.
During her appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Kloss was asked about her thoughts on “Taylor Swift’s recent Elle essay where she reflected on the infamous squad and realising that it was becoming the embodiment of all her insecurities.”
Karlie responded, “Taylor’s incredible and I feel lucky to call her a friend and she’s one of the hardest working women and I loved her essay.”
In case you didn’t catch it, here’s the tea that Taylor spilled in her essay:
In my twenties I found myself surrounded by girls who wanted to be my friend. So I shouted it from the rooftops, posted pictures, and celebrated my newfound acceptance into a sisterhood, without realising that other people might still feel the way I did when I felt so alone. It’s important to address our long-standing issues before we turn into the living embodiment of them.
Well, it certainly was fun while it lasted.
