A number of theories about Selena Gomez’s public nuzzle with Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry’s “meh” reaction have been doing the rounds since the pictures of Selena and Orlando emerged.
A new favorite theory manages to draw Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber into the scandal!
Some people believe that Taylor may have encouraged her BFF Selena to go after Orlando as a way of ruffling Katy Perry’s feathers.
Taylor Swift and Katy Perry have been feuding for a long time, according to Radar Online. Swift’s song “Bad Blood,” from her album 1989, was even rumored to be about Katy.
What happened was that Swift told reporters that the song is about her “straight-up enemy” in the music industry. Soon after that remark, Katy Perry took to Twitter and wrote a scandalous message:
“Watch out for the Regina George in sheep’s clothing.”
Many believed that Katy’s comment was a reference to the two-faced character played by Rachel McAdams in the film Mean Girls. Was Katy implying that Taylor is a mean girl who acts like a nice girl?
Katy was not fazed at all by the pictures of her boyfriend with another woman, according to E! Online.
“Katy has spoken to Orlando since all these pictures surfaced. They speak every day. They are still together and have no issues with each other. They communicate well about everything. Orlando explained everything to Katy, and Katy didn’t look too much into the matter anyway.”
An insider apparently told the publication that both Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are experienced enough to know “how things can get distorted.”
“Katy has experience with how the media can flip things around, so she’s not fazed by this. Things are good with them now.”
But was it Taylor Swift who encouraged her BFF Selena to pursue Orlando?
If this was the case, there was a bonus for Swift: A Selena/Orlando hookup would also hurt the feelings of Justin Bieber, who Taylor dislikes, according to Hollywood Life.
The mag reports that Swift has long been urging Selena to cut off Justin Bieber for good.
“It’s no secret that Taylor Swift isn’t a big fan of Justin Bieber’s, and now she’s hoping to convince her BFF Selena Gomez to say goodbye to her ex once and for all.”
Taylor has apparently even assured Selena that once she cuts Justin Bieber out of her life she will find the man of her dreams!
“Taylor has been pretty quiet about voicing her opinion on Justin, but she’s now speaking up about him again to Selena…Taylor really wants her to cut ties with Justin once and for all. None of this back and forth stuff. Taylor has been telling Selena that once she makes a commitment to shut the door on him completely, she will meet the true man of her dreams.”
Some outlets report that Taylor was tired of seeing her best friend hurt by flirtatious Justin Bieber, who is rumored to have cheated on Gomez. Indeed, Selena Gomez has said that these days she feels “deflated” even after talking about Justin.
Gomez added that she is learning to set boundaries with interviewers.
Not everyone was convinced Justin had anything to do with the recent drama. Some fans urged people to leave Bieber out of the feud between Katy Perry and Taylor Swift and declared that Justin has nothing to do with the drama involving Selena and Orlando Bloom.
If Taylor was behind the hookup and keen to ruffle Justin Bieber’s feathers, she may have succeeded in that. Hollywood Life reports that Bieber was “upset” and “mad” when he saw the photos of Selena cozying up to Orlando.
Do you think Taylor Swift urged Selena Gomez to hook up with Katy Perry’s man Orlando Bloom to hurt Katy and make Justin Bieber jealous?
