Lest you thought you were somehow “over” the Taylor Swift/Kim Kardashian/Kanye West drama from a few weeks back, and had risen above the petty distraction that is popular culture, and had transcended to a level of being at which you are able to glean worth from a world that is not dictated by celebrities, never fear. Last night, Justin Bieber took some time out of his busy schedule of complaining about the air quality in Los Angeles to FaceTime with Kanye West, with whom he is, apparently, close enough with to be on FaceTiming terms. Justin is not close enough with him to be chill about FaceTiming with Kanye West, however, and thus he screenshotted the call, posted it to Instagram, and captioned it “Taylor swift what up.” You may see the photo below:
This, obviously, is an allusion to Taylor Swift’s “SnakeGate” situation, as a well as the not-as-well-known, but longstanding nonetheless, beef between Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift that involves, as most things do, Selena Gomez. There is lots to unpack! Anyway, as one might expect, Twitter got involved. #TaylorSwiftWhatUp started trending last night, and the results have been pretty excellent.
