Taylor Swift: Camilla Belle weighs in on feud
In the wake of Taylor Swift and Kanye West reigniting their feud, actress Camilla Belle has seemingly added her comments to the controversy.
“No need for revenge. Just sit back & wait,” read a quote Belle posted to Instagram and Twitter on Monday. “Those who hurt you will eventually screw up themselves & if you’re lucky, God will let you watch.” The actress used the hashtags #quoteoftheday, #happymonday, and #felizsegunda.
Swift’s 2010 track “Better Than Revenge” is allegedly about Belle, and focuses on a woman who stole away another’s boyfriend. “She’s not a saint/ And she’s not what you think/ She’s an actress/ She’s better known/ For the things that she does/ On the mattress,” Swift sings on the song. Swift and Joe Jonas dated for a few months in 2008. After that, Belle and Jonas dated.
Belle’s comments came after West’s wife, Kim Kardashian, posted a Snapchat video proving West and Swift discussed the rapper’s song “Famous,” despite denials from Swift to the contrary. (The song includes the lyric “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous.”) In the wake of the revelation, celebrities such as Chloë Grace Moretz and Selena Gomez also weighed in on the controversy.
This isn’t the first time Belle has used social media to comment on Swift — at least in an indirect manner. After Swift and Nicki Minaj got into a debate on Twitter last year, Belle threw her support behind Katy Perry, who wrote of that feud, “Finding it ironic to parade the ‘pit women against other women’ argument about as one unmeasurably capitalizes on the take down of a woman.” (Minaj had expressed her dismay over the MTV VMA nominations’ focus on women with “slim bodies,” leading Swift to write, “I’ve done nothing but love & support you. It’s unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot…”)
