Hello foolish mortals. Just kidding, I’m not that type of blog. But, I’m the type of blog that informs you about your favorite pop princess Taylor Swift. Today, I’m gonna dive into her faux friendship with Oscar nominee Hailee Steinfeld. Let’s get this party started:
In September 2013, Taylor Swift and Hailee Steinfeld were spotted shopping together
THEY LOOK LIKE DISCOUNT HIPSTERS LOL
This is funny because, this whole photo op happened before this movie came out:
And, ofc the premiere was the same month and guess who showed up? Yes, you guessed it.
WHY DOES SHE KEEP POSING LIKE A FLAMINGO LOL
Lots of media reports claimed that Taylor was there to support her new “BFF” Hailee Steinfeld:
Taylor Swift Supports BFF Hailee Steinfeld at ‘Romeo & Juliet’ Premiere
NEWS/ Taylor Swift Supports BFF Hailee Steinfeld at Romeo and Juliet Premiere—See the Pics!
Taylor Swift Supports Hailee Steinfeld At ‘Romeo And Juliet’ Premiere
I love how the media calls them BFFS even though we’ve only seen them “hangout” once before this event.
This was probably Hailee begging Taylor to go to the premiere
LIKE PLEASE I NEED MY MOVIE TO DO WELL SO PLEASE GO PLEASE
And, why the fuck was a 23 year old woman hanging out with a 16 year old?
Romeo and Juliet opened to terrible reviews and flopped at the box office:
O, audience, audience! Wherefore art thou: Heartache for Hailee as Romeo And Juliet movie flops at the box office
GUESS TAYLOR SWIFT DOESN’T WORK AS A BOX OFFICE PLOY
Hailee even got terrible reviews for her performance:
“Douglas Booth is a handsome fellow, in a mushy-peas kind of way, but Hailee Steinfeld, Oscar-nominated for True Grit, neither looks appealing nor acts with any distinction here.”
“She [Steinfeld] speaks too fast and slurs her words without providing emphasis or shading. There’s never a privileged moment when she, or the film, pauses to allow her to absorb — and to communicate to the viewer — what’s happening to her now that she’s met Romeo.”
Also, that same month it was announced that Taylor was cast in The Giver ughhh:
Taylor Swift has reportedly joined the star-studded cast of The Giver, THR reports!
The 23-year-old entertainer will co-star with some huge names including Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges, Brenton Thwaites, Katie Holmes, Alexander Skarsgard, Cameron Monaghan, and many more.
LIKE THAT’S NOT GONNA FLOP OH WAIT IT DID
And, she announced her London tour for Red:
The next month, Hailee opened up about Taylor:
“We connected a few years ago; [Taylor]‘s like a big sister to me. She’s the best listener. I feel like I can call or text her wherever she is in the world and she’ll always be there,” Hailee Steinfeld recently shared to People.
and Hailee name dropped Tay on Ellen:
That’s funny how Hailee was opening up about Tay a month before this film came out:
Moving on, Hailee and Taylor didn’t even “hangout” again until April 2014 lol
LOL AT HAILEE LOOKING AT THE CAMERAS LIKE BITCH WE KNOW YOU CALLED THEM
The next day, Hailee opened up about Tay yet again but this time in Nylon:
“[She is] an amazing friend.” “I always get the ‘Tell us something nobody knows [about Swift] question. And it’s like, we both respect each other tremendously, but we choose to keep our friendship out of the public eye. She’s a really great person and an inspiration to me and many others.”
WE CHOOSE TO KEEP OUR FRIENDSHIP OUT OF THE PUBLIC EYE
And, the next day it was announced that Hailee was cast in Pitch Perfect 2:
Hailee Steinfeld Joins Cast of ‘Pitch Perfect 2’!
Hailee Steinfeld has joined the star-studded cast of the highly anticipated upcoming movie Pitch Perfect 2!
No word yet on what character the 17-year-old Oscar-nominated actress will be playing, but we can’t wait to see her showing off her vocal skills.
Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow, Alexis Knapp, Ester Dean, and more are all confirmed to return to the sequel and it was just announced that Teen Beach Movie‘s Chrissie Fit will be joining in on the fun as well.
If the sequel is as successful as the first movie, Hailee would be taking over the franchise as the star of a third film, according to Variety.
I WONDER HOW MANY STRINGS TAY HAD TO PULL TO GET THIS TO HAPPEN
In March 2015, Hailee and Taylor reunited for Camila Cabello’s birthday:
SO MANY FAKE FRIENDS SO LITTLE TIME
and this event happened before these 2 events:
The next month gets even better because Hailee’s Bad Blood poster leaked
DISCOUNT EX MACHINA
and 5 days later, Universal Studios let many Pitch Perfect fans listen to the soundtrack before the film came out:
‘Pitch Perfect 2’ Soundtrack – Stream the Full Album Here!
Pitch Perfect 2 is now playing in theaters everywhere and you can listen to the full soundtrack here before or after you see the film!
The Barden Bellas – Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Hailee Steinfeld, Brittany Snow, Ester Dean, Hana Mae Lee, Alexis Knapp, and Chrissie Fit – belt it out on the soundtrack, which is available now on iTunes.
Some of the songs you can hear on the soundtrack are “Wrecking Ball,” “Timber,” “Thong Song,” “Bootylicious,” “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” “A Thousand Miles,” and so much more.
THEY WOULD COVER TAYLOR SWIFT LOL
While promoting Pitch Perfect 2, Hailee name dropped Tay yet again on Ellen lol:
A few days later, Hailee attended the Billboard Music Awards with Taylor’s other faux friends:
THEY LOOK LIKE DISCOUNT PRETTY LITTLE LIARS LOL
And, the same night the horrible bad blood music video premiered:
I ROBOT DID IT BETTER TAY AND HAILEE
A couple of days after the BBAS, it was announced that Hailee signed to Republic Records:
Hailee Steinfeld Signs To Republic Records Music Label
Hailee Steinfeld has officially signed a deal with music label Republic Records!
The 18-year-old Academy Award-nominated star has been in the studio working on her debut release with Captain Cuts, Harvey Mason, The Futuristics, Mattman & Robin from MXM and many others.
Hailee‘s latest movie, Pitch Perfect 2, opened in theaters last weekend to a very impressive $70.3 million – the biggest box office opening ever for a musical!
Republic Records executive vice president Charlie Walk, pictured here, said: “The moment that we met Hailee, we found her commitment to music inspiring. She has the vision, natural talent and dedication to compete at the highest level. We are thrilled to be a part of her musical journey.”
The label’s co-founder and chief executive Monte Lipman added, “Hailee is a multi-talented artist and among her many gifts, her voice is both unique and undeniable. It’s exciting to have her join the Republic family.”
We can’t wait to hear the album! We absolutely love Hailee‘s voice and if you haven’t already, check out the video of her singing the new song “Flashlight” from Pitch Perfect 2!
I WONDER HOW MUCH TAY PAID FOR THIS SHIT TO HAPPEN
In June 2015, Taylor and Hailee threw their other fake friend Jaime King a baby shower lol
WAS THE THEME DISCOUNT ALICE IN WONDERLAND? LOL
Ironically, this baby shower happened while Hailee was promoting that Alias rip off Barely Lethal:
The film is directed by Jaime’s husband Kyle Newman who also directed some of Tay’s videos.
The film also went straight to Video On Demand
The next month Hailee claimed that Pitch Perfect 2 helped her get a record deal:
“It definitely was. Music has always been a huge part of my life, but also my preparation as an actor,” Hailee shared.
She added, “I’ve always been so curious about just doing it myself, and exploring it in Pitch Perfect 2 gave me a segue into that.”
The same month, Tay invited Hailee, The Weeknd and her other fake friends up onstage with her during one of her 1989 world tour dates:
THEY ALL LOOK SO FUCKING AWKWARD LOL
A couple of days later Hailee announced that Love Myself was her 1st single:
Hailee Steinfeld Shoots ‘Love Myself’ Video; Will Drop August 7th!
Hailee Steinfeld checks out a few photos on a pal’s phone during a break on the set of her “Love Myself” video shoot on Wednesday afternoon (July 22) in Los Angeles.
The 18-year-old actress and singer just opened up about her debut single with On Air With Ryan Seacrest, which drops on August 7th.
“‘Love Myself’ is my first-ever debut single. It is ultimately about taking care of and indulging yourself,” she dished.
Hailee added, “Though it’s nice to have someone provide for you — whether that be emotionally, or physically, or with material things — this song really represents the power in providing for yourself.”
She also released the artwork for the song
and performed an acoustic version of Shawn Mendes’ Stitches with Shawn himself
P.S. Shawn was also Taylor’s opening act for her 1989 world tour:
The next month, Hailee finally released Love Myself to the public:
SERIOUSLY HOW DID THIS BITCH GET A RECORD DEAL? OH WAIT I KNOW HOW
YES, TAYLOR I’M TALKING ABOUT U YOU’RE THE REASON HAILEE GOT A RECORD DEAL
Hailee later dropped the music video:
THIS SONG GOT ME LIKE
Hailee also went to Taylor’s L.A. concert
LOVE HOW SHE ALWAYS KNOWS THAT THE CAMERAS ARE GONNA BE THERE LOL
Later, Hailee attended the 2015 VMAS with Tay’s other faux friends yet again lol
HI DISCOUNT PLASTICS LOL
I love how this all happened before Hailee released the acoustic version of Love Myself:
Hailee’s debut performance at the 2015 Steamy Awards:
OH GOSH THAT SINGING HAHA
Hailee performed with Shawn Mendes again at the IHeart Radio Music Awards:
