In February, Grizzly Bear lead singer Edward Droste expressed his hatred for a fellow musician on Twitter. In the deleted tweets, Droste confessed, "Met a celebrity I always speculated was terribly calculated and mean, and they exceeded all my expectations of rudeness and arrogance. HATE." In a following tweet, he asked that his fans don't reveal this walking Satan, for "they see all and have the capacity and desire to destroy." Almost six months later, the singer sent out a tweet that confirmed his vengeance for Taylor Swift.

The snippet from a tabloid says that the gift-sendingfan-loving best friend to all sent a dress code to her famous concert groupies, detailing what they can and cannot wear on her tour, so not to upstage her. The magazine even questioned whether Swift is "Regina George 2.0." Whether or not that's accurate, blank spaces and bad blood abound in T. Swift's future.
