Taylor Swift has been off the grid for the past few months, laying low, only resurfacing to occasionally diss an ex or two or 100 at a music awards show ceremony.
But on the cover of Glamour UK, Taylor arrives with a vengeance—girl is dishing the hard side-eyeing gossip and this time she doesn’t need a melody to do it either. Spill the tea, Tay Tay.
It’s just a single, minor, skim-the-magazine’s-article-and-you’ll-miss-it sentence, but that’s all that’s necessary here. It’s why they call it shade and not a blackout.
Talking about relationships with the reporter, Taylor commented, “I’ve seen my friends take someone back after they’ve cheated because they fit perfectly. But I don’t know, because I’ve never had a perfect fit with someone.”
Nowhere in there does she say she’s referring to Selena Gomez outright, but that now infamous gag she made backstage when she saw one of her best friends reunite with Justin Bieber at the Billboard Music Awards made it clear as a meme.
