9 People We Forgot Taylor Swift Was Once Friends With

Between her star-studded concerts and Instagram posts that are the actual definition of squad goals, it’s hard to believe that there are any famous faces missing from Taylor Swift’s crew. By now, we all know the story of how Katy Perry and Taylor went from being frenemies to enemies. However, there are obviously a couple other friendships whose mad love turned to bad blood as well. Here are 9 ex-friends whom you may or may not have heard a record-breaking single about. 

1. Carrie Underwood

At the 2013 Country Music Awards, Carrie Underwood made a joke at Taylor’s expense in regards to her recent split with then boyfriend, Connor Kennedy. When asked by her co-star, Brad Paisley, if she thought they would ever get back together, Underwood replied, "Never, never, never,” which was a mocking reference to Swift’s single “We Are Never Getting Back Together.” When later asked about why the camera didn’t show her reaction to the joke, Swift quipped, “They don’t pan to you if you’re not laughing.”

2. Demi Lovato

It seems that in the classic new BFF vs. old BFF battle, Taylor won. Back in 2010, a video circulated the Internet of Demi Lovato replying, “Ask Taylor” when asked about her former best friend, Selena Gomez. While there has never been an all-out feud, Demi has definitely fired a few shots at Taylor over the years and as we know band-aids don’t fix bullet holes.

3. Miley Cyrus

Before her days of swinging on wrecking balls and twerking, this ex-Disney darling was also a good friend of Taylor’s. They performed together at the 2009 Grammy Awards and Swift even made a cameo in Hannah Montana the Movie. Recently, Miley Cyrus posted a face-swap of Justin Bieber and Swift on Instagram and dissed Tay’s “Bad Blood” music video in her latest Marie Claire interview. Taylor has yet to respond to the criticism from Cyrus, but we think that the upcoming VMAs would be the perfect platform for revenge.

4. Kellie Pickler

Back when Taylor was singing about teardrops on her guitar and rocking cowboy boots on red carpets, she and Kellie Pickler were the best of friends. They were the ultimate country music babes and were all but inseparable on every CMA carpet. Although there was never a public falling out, it seems that everything has changed since Swift’s crossover to pop music.

5. Ashley Greene

At the 2011 Teen Choice Awards, Ashley and Taylor bonded over mutual ex, Joe Jonas. However, a boy band boyfriend must have been all that the pair had in common because they haven’t been seen together since.

6. Zac Efron

While we couldn’t fully support a Zaylor relationship at the time (we were totally stuck on Zanessa!), their adorable duet on the The Ellen DeGeneres Show simply cannot be forgotten. This is one friendship that we were truly sad to see go.

7. Justin Bieber

The two pop stars were reportedly super close before Justin decided to break Taylor's BFFs heart. After all of the Jelena drama, it seems that Taylor has a very low Bieber tolerance these days.

8. Chord Overstreet

Although there was much speculation that the two dated, Overstreet’s brother insists that the two were just good friends and got along really well because of their outgoing personalities.

9. Katy Perry

We could explain why these two are no longer friends but is that really necessary?

Which of these friendships do you miss the most, collegiettes? 

She realizes that her last name is Trusty and does that make her trusty? Yes, yes it does. She cares way more about the goings on of Kylie Jenner, One Direction, and the rest of the celebrity population way more than the average person should. So as opposed to becoming a professional paparazzo, she does this while she studies Broadcast Journalism at the University of South Carolina. You can find her on Instagram @briballerina or @verytrustysource.
