Bye bye Tay?
You thought the #TaylorSwiftIsOverParty was, well, over? THINK AGAIN.
Justin Bieber has just set Twitter alight with his latest Instagram photo, which shows him Facetiming with Kanye West, and the caption 'Taylor Swift what up'. What about you, JB, what up with that caption?! Are you throwing shade? Are you actually in on the joke? Is this feud all fake? We just don't know, but we bet we're about to find out...

In case you hadn't heard — people, where have you been — Calvin Harris is a bit vexed. And he only went and used Twitter to effectively throw a massive cat amongst the Swiddleston/Hiddleswift/Tayto pigeons.
Following news that Taylor Swift actually co-wrote ex BF Calvin’s smash hit This Is What You Came For under a pseudonym (burn), the jilted lover decided to respond in quite the explosive fashion, taking to Twitter to vent his irritation.
It started off friendly enough…
And she sings on a little bit of it too— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) 13 July 2016
Amazing lyric writer and she smashed it as usual https://t.co/vW3yGOIJit
I wrote the music, produced the song, arranged it and cut the vocals though. And initially she wanted it kept secret, hence the pseudonym— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) 13 July 2016
But then, things started to get a bit, errr...
Hurtful to me at this point that her and her team would go so far out of their way to try and make ME look bad at this stage though— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) 13 July 2016
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— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) 13 July 2016
And then, the bombshell.
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— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) 13 July 2016
Wait... what was that about Katy?
Please focus on the positive aspects of YOUR life because you've earned a great one— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) 13 July 2016
God bless everyone have a beautiful day— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) 13 July 2016
Yep, in a series of seven tweets, Calvin Harris caused total Twitter apocalypse and within minutes, the hashtag #TaylorSwiftIsOverParty started trending, like, THE most insane trending thing ever. It seems that many, many people have been waiting for this Tay Tay take-down, and unsurprisingly, they were armed to the teeth.
Katy Perry fans (remember 'Bad Blood'... yeah, revenge is a dish best served cold, huh, KPez?), Rihanna fans, Kimye fans, in fact, anyone with a Swifty axe to grind flooded Twitter with their wishes to attend the #TaylorSwiftIsOverParty. There were so, SO many hilarious examples to choose from, but here are just a few of our favourites...
And then, it just got better. Like a phoenix from the Bad Blood ashes, ex-squad member Katy Perry got involved by first tweeting:
And then, re-tweeting a message from 2015...

The jig is apparently up for all those of the opinion that Taylor Swift isn't the wholesome cookie-cutter pop princess she appears to be. However, there are a lot of people (not necessarily Swifties) that think all of this social media skulduggery is just a well-orchestrated publicity stunt. Or (more simply) the actions of a spiteful ex.
Either way, Calvin Harris hasn't gone down quietly. He is affronted, and has actually gained a lot of respect for speaking out so candidly about 'the-one-we-don't-say-bad-things-about-because-you'll-get-taken-to-the-cleaners'. Plus, everyone loves a good Twitter spat right?
Taylor has yet to respond, and we're actually excited about how she'll take this s*** down. If there's one thing we've learned over time, is that you DO NOT MESS WITH TAYLOR SWIFT. And, you know, props to that.
