Taylor Swift’s Music Video Director Has Accused Beyonce Of Ripping Off “Bad Blood”

Gigi Hadid, Selena Gomez, Karlie Kloss, Todrick Hall, and the Haim sisters all better start thinking about putting in some overtime friendship hours with Taylor Swift, because Joseph Kahn appears to be gunning hard for the title of Most Valuable Squad Member.

Upon the release of the teaser of Taylor’s video for “Look What You Made Me Do,” some people pointed out that a few frames looked suspiciously like a blatant Forever 21 rip-off of Beyonce’s video for “Formation.” Joseph, the video’s director, took to his favorite platform, Twitter, and explained that he was absolutely not copying “Formation.” Then when the full video came out and people hissed, “Not now Taylor, we’ve got bigger shit to worry about than your hurt rich girl feelings!“, Joseph once again hopped on Twitter and slapped at the haters on behalf of his queen.

Joseph ain’t done! Joseph has more to say, and of course it all sounds like that one friend who gets sent to relay messages back and forth between warring popular girl groups on the playground at recess. Joseph recently spoke to the Los Angeles Times (via Billboard) about his battle rap film Bodied premiering at TIFF, and he made like the name of his movie and bodied the Beyhive.

“I suddenly understood the conflict of what’s going on in society and what battle rap serves, what prism to look at the movie through. It’s not Formation at all. They try to say she’s wearing a black crop top and Beyonce wore a black crop top. But they don’t realize in 2015 in Bad Blood, Taylor Swift was wearing a black crop top. I really do think, by the way, that Beyonce copied Bad Blood.”

Joseph doesn’t say how “Formation” copies “Bad Blood.” I wish he did, because I honestly can’t make the connection. Was there a scene “Formation” where Beyonce recruits all her famous friends, gets dressed up in good girl assassin Halloween costumes, and detonates a warehouse full of explosives in an attempt to get petty revenge on Katy Perry? I must have missed that.

I’m starting to think it was written into Joseph’s squad contract that a portion of all fighting in the name of Tay Tay must be done on Twitter, because after the Los Angeles Times published his interview, he hopped on Twitter to clarify his comments. You guys, Joseph was totally just kidding, okay?

Trolling or not, Joseph has picked the wrong group to poke at with a metaphorical stick. The Beyhive is no joke. I hope Joseph has access to one of those sting-proof beekeeper suits, because he’s going to want to start wearing it at all times from here on out. Goodbye regular clothes, hello head-to-toe protective gear. Yes it’s going to be hot and uncomfortable, but you brought this on yourself, Joseph!

  1. My hope is with soap and water…?

    Taffy, Tiffany – both bring to mind a “special” kind of person.

  3. Fremdschämen

    She is now.

  4. playa's dire twat

    I don’t know what’s worse; having Taffy thrust upon you, or willingly choosing to go by Taffy.

    She’s in trouble at work, eh?

  5. Why are your only comments ones that attack others?

  6. That’s true dedication to your craft. (Take that, Jared Leto!)

  7. Fremdschämen

    Actually, her name is Tiffany. She willingly chose Taffy. And she works at a swanky country club that’s not too happy with her right now. She’s a special kind of dumb.

  8. IFuckLikeaStarfish

    How do you even go about getting ready to film that?

  9. Why is she always getting into fights with people? It seems her only friends are paid for.

  10. DaisySpreckles

    I had a dog named Taffy.

  11. Pretentious fuckwits thats who. These celebs trying to up one another in the name department is kinda sick. Like they are just some kind of accessory. https://uploads.disquscdn.c

  12. She lives in Bakersfield. Pity her.

  13. Child abusers or psychics who want to get back at their kid ahead of time.

  14. IchLiebeDanielBruehl

    That’s her real name – she’s on Facebook. Apparently, she ain’t the brightest bulb on the tree.

  15. He’s got a movie to promote and just jumping on the band wagon of Taylor’s fans to help him garner tix sales–funny he chose Taylor over Bey tho—losing battle–just grab a chair Khan your over zealous coat tail riding is obvious to everyone.

  16. I was thinking of checking out Bodied at TIFF. I didn’t realise it was a Swifty Stan made movie. Hard pass now.

  17. Could Taylor just fuck him already.
    its so obvious he has it hard for her.
    god! I dunno, send in a body double or something. blindfold sex is in right now.

  18. youlooklikelindaevangelista

    Howling at the Bobby Trendy reference. Thank you.

    She’s the she’s the last, dust-covered, Limited Edition Taint Flavored Taffy (off brand, of course) left in the abandoned gas station just outside of Baker.

  20. She is pathetic and so is he. I see she is still getting others to do her dirty work for her. Its almost as though she thinks she is above critique, When did she become so entitled. She been so overexposed people are already sick to death of her and the album isn’t even out yet. Im just mystified by her success. She is so full of shit.

  21. Queen Frostine's Original Face

    This guy needs to calm his tits and get off Taylor’s dick. God. You’d think the guy who directed the video for “Toxic” would have better things to do, but I guess not.

  22. Pfft that bish is too stale and cracked under the pressure.

  23. playa's dire twat

    Well if you all would stop pulling on her, maybe she’d be more laffy?

  24. 😂 that must be why she’s so salty
