Justin Bieber Did NOT Say “Who Even Likes Taylor Swift,” Despite Report
The Daily Mail claims, “It seems the ‘Sorry’ singer may be trying to start a bit of a tiff with Taylor Swift. Justin was captured by the JustinBieberTracker Instagram account taking a selfie video in which he wears a white t-shirt and holds a bottle of blue drink. After checking to make sure the device was recording, he sings a line from Swift’s I Knew You Were Trouble from 2012. His caption curiously read: ‘Who even likes taylor swift?'”
The British tabloid accuses Bieber of “starting a row” and “throwing shade” with that caption. There is one significant problem, though. The singer himself did NOT write that caption or say anything about Swift at all.
Here’s what really happened: Bieber was at a taping for “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” where he filmed a snippet for the program’s Snapchat. It features the performer innocuously singing, “I knew you were trouble when you walked in.” And that’s it.
But the @justinbiebertracker on Instagram shared the footage, and wrote its own caption. The person who runs the account, which attempts to track Bieber’s every move, is the one who wrote, “Who even likes Taylor Swift?” It was NOT Bieber’s own caption from Snapchat or Instagram, and he doesn’t even have personal accounts for either service anymore.
The Daily Mail, which apparently couldn’t be bothered to look into the origins of the footage, is wrongly claiming the Swift diss came from Bieber himself. That is 100 percent untrue. The original Snapchat video had no caption at all.
