Taylor Swift Just Crossed the Beyhive. Find Out Why.
In her brand new song, Taylor Swift takes aim at famous rivals such as Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and Katy Perry.
But it’s a different A-Lister who now has a beef with the artist.
Or, perhaps we should more accurately say, it’s a different artist’s fan base.
On Friday afternoon, Swift unveiled a music video teaser for “Look at What You Made Me Do,” two days ahead of when the full video will premiere at the MTV Video Music Awards.

It doesn’t reveal very much.
But it has revealed enough to severely anger the Beyhive, the loyal group of Beyonce fans who worship at the feet of the world’s most popular solo singer…
… and who have now set their sights on Swift.
In one frame from her video teaser, Swift is dressed in a black leotard and fishnet tights while leading a group of male dancers who are all rocking similar looks.
The footage appears to be set in an ornate ballroom.
Critics, meanwhile, are pointing to Beyonce’s Lemonade visual album as a comparison.
In the video for the Beyonce track “Sorry,” the superstar and Serena Williams dance in the halls of a lavish Louisiana plantation… while wearing – you guessed it! – black leotards.
Queen Bey also donned the look with a contingent of similarly dressed backup dancers during her performance of “Formation” at Super Bowl 50.
One fan tweeted side-by-side screen shots of Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” teaser and video from Lemonade, captioning it “Lemonade and Minute Maid.”
But is it fair?
Added Beyonce fan added: “Taylor Swift wanna be Beyoncé so bad.”
Taylor has received A LOT backlash for this new single, which many Internet users believe to be petty and simply not very catchy.
It also has a very dark tone.
Others, meanwhile, thought back to Swift’s infamous feud with Kardashian and West and accused the singer of “playing the victim.”
This is a charge Swift has faced for years, having often sang about being wronged by ex-boyfriends in some way, shape or form.
This is different, though. This is Taylor Swift daring to cross the Beyhive. We’d be a tad frightened if we were her.
Are these criticisms justified?
Do you think Swift really did copy Beyonce?
Or is this just a coincidence? And it Swift receiving an unfair rap?
