Jennifer Lopez’ birthday party was the scene of yet another episode in the ongoing fiery feud pitting Taylor Swift against Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. Since Swift is also “publicly at odds” with her ex-boyfriend, Calvin Harris, she’s been having a tough time of it recently.
This round didn’t include any angry words, rants or tweets from any of the people involved, but the message for Taylor from Lopez’ birthday bash was clear. Calvin and Kim, both furious with Taylor for completely different reasons, took advantage of Lopez’ birthday to hang out, show some solidarity for their separate anti-Taylor beefs, and taunt Swift with their togetherness.
The birthday party for Lopez was planned as an “early celebration” timed to fit in with Jennifer’s All I Have show at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. Some of the guests, including Kim Kardashian, also attended Lopez’ show before heading over to the birthday bash.
As Lopez’s birthday fun carried on, Harris and Kardashian found each other and lost no time sharing their thoughts about something engrossing, and their conversation could have included a comment or two about their frustration with the “Bad Blood” singer. According to Us Weekly, a source who was also at the get together said that Calvin and Kim “were seen happily chatting away” during the evening.
“Kim and Calvin did talk and interact, smiling and chatting for awhile.”
TMZ reports that there’s “no doubt Taylor’s name came up once or twice” as the two exchanged conversation at Lopez’ party. After all, the “Famous” feud between Swift and the Kardashian-Wests, and the “This is What You Came For” feud that’s wrecked the friendly breakup situation between Taylor and Calvin are both pretty much front and centre right now in the Swifty world.
One fan tweeted that she’d even be willing to pay for a chance to hear what Calvin and Kim had to say to each other.
Both Kardashian and Harris had some fun taunting Swift this week when they each posted video of themselves singing lyrics from “Famous,” the song that sent Taylor into a spin and “reignited” her feud with Kanye. Harris posted his lip-sync video, where he looked like he had “a grand old time” blasting Taylor, only a few days after Kim blasted Swift by releasing video of a Swift and West phone call discussing “Famous.”
Then Kim got in on the fun by dancing and singing along to “Famous” while she was partying at Hakkasan nightclub Saturday night in Las Vegas. Kim didn’t sing the whole thing and instead made a point of emphasizing the part of the song that Taylor found particularly offensive.
For Harris and Kardashian to be seen together and obviously enjoying each other’s conversation and company is a definite diss of Swift, and they totally knew that. Calvin is only two months out from the break-up with Taylor, but he had the look of someone who was “having a blast” and “in a particularly jovial mood.”
Harris and Kardashian even posed for a photo together with Lopez and French Montana. Kim is holding out the Jennifer’s birthday cake, and Calvin has his arm around the singer and they all look happy to be celebrating Lopez 47th birthday. Harris posted the pic on social media, and “he had to know” that Swift would see it and know exactly what Kim and Calvin wanted to communicate.
The photo is a direct hit at Swift, letting her know that her “2 of her biggest enemies” are “coming together.” What do you think? Is the birthday photo of Harris and Kardashian going to make things even worse between Swift and the Kardashian-Wests, and will her so-called friendly breakup with Calvin get back on track?
