Taylor Swift Shakes Off Her Dancers,” reads a headline in Star, which claims the “money-hungry” singer is “determined to keep her overhead down — and she’ll trample whomever it takes to maximize her profits.”


When has Swift ever been accused of being greedy?

Well, Star claims her “recent victims” are a “pair of guitarists and two prominent male backup dancers,” who were allegedly “canned so the Queen of Pop can go with a cheaper, all-girl stage show.”

Um, we’ve never heard of Swift being considered the “Queen of Pop” either.

Anyway, a so-called “source” tells Star that the allegedly “canned” performers had no idea they were “being dropped.”

“They were completely cut off, no contact at all,” claims the outlet’s “source.”

Star says it’s all supposedly “part of Taylor’s plan to have her new album, 1989, and tour be her most profitable yet.”

The tab’s “source” then mean-spiritedly adds, “Anyone who thinks she’s about more than making money is naïve.”

Maybe Star is naïve to believe its supposed sources.

And if the tabloid thinks it can get away with repeatedly reporting falsehoods about Swift, then it is really naïve.

Regardless, a source close to Swift tells Gossip Cop exclusively that the magazine’s latest story is — wait for it — “not true.”
