Taylor Swift: Is The Party Over For America’s Pop Princess?

Taylor Swift was once on top of the world when she successfully crossed into the pop music genre with her hit album, 1989. The years 2014 and 2015 were record making when it came to both her professional and personal life. Now, it looks like 2016 is a bad year for the singer, who’s on an extended hiatus from making music.

However, that hasn’t stopped Taylor Swift, 26, for making news for the other things going on in her life. People have been slamming her for moving on quickly since her split from Calvin Harris on June 1. Swift didn’t waste any time dating Night Manager star Tom Hiddleston who she supposedly met at the Met Gala. Harris, 32, also didn’t waste time hitting back at the singer after People reported that Swift had a hand in writing his new hit song “This Is What You Came For” with Rihanna.

The couple supposedly split over Calvin’s collaboration with Rihanna. According to Taylor’s rep, the singer-songwriter wrote the song under the pseudonym Nils Sjoberg. Then, TMZ reported that Taylor “wrote the song, sat down at a piano and did a demo into her iPhone,” which she then sent to Calvin.

The couple decided to keep their collaboration a secret, but Swift was hurt when Harris said to Ryan Seacrest that he doesn’t see himself working with the pop superstar anytime soon. But then, Harris confirmed that Swift is currently on an extended hiatus from making music and that they never discussed collaborating when they were dating.

“You know, we haven’t even spoken about it. I can’t see it happening though,” he said on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show, which you can watch in the videos below.

Last week, Calvin confirmed People’s report and then blasted his famous ex-girlfriend after paying her a compliment. In a series of tweets, Calvin claimed that he wrote the music, produced the song, and then arranged it and cut the vocals. But then, he admitted that Taylor’s team has been working hard to drag him in the media.

I wrote the music, produced the song, arranged it and cut the vocals though. And initially she wanted it kept secret, hence the pseudonym

Hurtful to me at this point that her and her team would go so far out of their way to try and make ME look bad at this stage though

He also confirmed Swift’s ongoing feud with Katy Perry, which sparked her hit song “Bad Blood.”

I figure if you’re happy in your new relationship you should focus on that instead of trying to tear your ex bf down for something to do

I know you’re off tour and you need someone new to try and bury like Katy ETC but I’m not that guy, sorry. I won’t allow it

Social media has reacted to Harris’ response with memes poking fun at the singer, as reported on News.com.au. Shortly after Harris responded last Wednesday, the hashtag #TaylorSwiftIsOverParty trended in the U.S. And now that Katy Perry and Kim Kardashian have slammed Swift once again, fans have been making good use of the hashtag all weekend long.

Now, Taylor has taken control of Calvin’s hit by dropping her pseudonym and making herself the songwriter of the single, TMZ has confirmed in exclusive documents revealed on Monday, July 18. Since Taylor has confirmed her as the songwriter, she could receive a portion of the profit. And since the song has been doing so well on the music charts, it could earn $250,000 in royalties.

So, while Swift is facing some heavy controversy, she may walk away with a good chunk of money, Music and Business Attorney Melissa K. Dagodag, revealed to Hollywood Life.

“The royalties go into the pockets of the songwriters and that is why they are fighting over it because Taylor obviously makes a lot of money from her song writing. In a summer alone, the song could earn perhaps $250,000 in royalties if it is a huge song, potentially depending on the sales numbers, Taylor and Calvin could be splitting a lot of money.”

Swift has received a lot of scrutiny alone for her feud with Kimye. Several celebrities have taken to social media to air their thoughts on the feud, including Demi Lovato, Chloe Grace Moretz, Khloe Kardashian, Spencer Pratt, and Selena Gomez. It looks like the feud is expected to carry on since Kimye may be faced with a lawsuit, while the couple is reported to release even more footage that proves that Swift approved the “that b****” lyric, which she has since denied on Instagram.
