Taylor Swift

May 17th, 2015

Taylor Swift is hurting. You wouldn't know it from her rocking pipes, but she's very clearly got some bad blood between her and her now ex-friend. There once was a time that they had mad love, but now someone has to look at what they've done. Sorry won't fix anything because "band-aids don't fix bullet holes." We know Taylor, and we feel you.
