Taylor Swift is known for channeling ~the feelings~ of teenage girls worldwide into her music, but last night she spoke for all of humanity in this all-encompassing GIF:
Let’s enter the void. Backstage at the Billboard Music Awards. Selena Gomez greets her ex-boyfriend (?) Justin Bieber. Justin Bieber greets his ex-girlfriend (??) Selena Gomez. Selena Gomez leans in and kisses Justin Bieber on the cheek (?!?!?!??!!?).
Then, Taylor Swift/Me/You/Everyone You Know brushes past, sees this mini-reunion, let’s her tongue roll out like, “Ech!”
You can’t blame Taylor. It’s a totally natural physiological reaction to the situation. America’s doctors have been using photos of Justin and Selena kissing to test our gag reflexes during routine physicals throughout 2013. It just means that everything is working.
While Justin clearly leaves a bad taste in Taylor’s mouth, it didn’t spoil her entire night. The country-pop crossover swept the evening’s awards show, taking home an army of trophies—eight to be exact, including this year’s Top Artist.
