Taylor Swift decided to show up with her girl posse instead of Calvin Harris at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards. The 25-year-old “Bad Blood” singer made head turns with her red carpet fashion and date choices.
Swift also debuted her “Bad Blood” music video at the awards show. It was the perfect way to open the Billboard Music Awards. Swift’s highly-anticipated music video featured Kendrick Lamar and some of her famous girlfriend — but it didn’t feature any Katy Perry digs. The track was originally rumored to be about her fellow pop rival because of her interview with Rolling Stone magazine.
“For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not. She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, ‘Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life? She did something so horrible. I was like, ‘Oh, we’re just straight-up enemies.’ And it wasn’t even about a guy!
It had to do with business. She basically tried to sabotage an entire arena tour. She tried to hire a bunch of people out from under me. And I’m surprisingly non-confrontational – you would not believe how much I hate conflict. So now I have to avoid her. It’s awkward, and I don’t like it.”
The “Bad Blood” music video didn’t make any references to the Katy Perry feud. Kendrick Lamar even added some verses to the remix, so it didn’t have any hints about their alleged feud. Instead, it showed a group of famous ladies fighting against each other in an intergalactic or futuristic world.
Taylor Swift even made the decision to hit the red carpet with some of her female friends at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards. The singer didn’t show up with rumored boyfriend Calvin Harris. Instead, Taylor wanted to walk with some of her female friends that starred in the “Bad Blood” music video.
The entertainer wore a sexy white Balmain pantsuit with a plunging neckline and cutouts. Swift paired her super sexy and effortless look with a “Bad Blood” clutch, Brian Atwood shoes, Effy Jewel earrings, and a Djula bracelet and ring, as previously noted via Just Jared. Calvin Harris walked the red carpet separately in an all-black ensemble.
Just because Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris didn’t walk the red carpet together doesn’t mean that they’re not sitting together at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards. The Washington Post noted that Taylor will sit two seats away from Calvin with her female friends strategically placed in between them. It looks like Taylor and Calvin don’t want the focus to be on them, even though several photos of the two have already been revealed in recent weeks.
According to gossip site TMZ, Swift requested a change in the seating chart. She made sure that Harris was seated away from her in order to divert attention away from their relationship. The pair has recently been spotted having dinner at Gjelina in Venica, California. Swift and Harris have even been spotted at various concerts for the past two months.
