Taylor Swift has come to the defense of Hayley Kiyoko after some Swift fans thought Kiyoko was taking a shot at her with recent comments she made. During a March 30 interview, Kiyoko said,”I’ve had several music industry execs say, ‘You’re doing another music video about girls? I literally looked at them and was like, um, yeah… Taylor Swift sings about men in every single song and video, and no one complains that she’s unoriginal.” While some fans thought Kiyoko was throwing shade at Swift, Taylor quickly shot down any notions of bad blood between the two, commending Kiyoko for her comments. “We should applaud artists who are brave enough to tell their honest romantic narrative through their art, and the fact is that I’ve never encountered homophobia and she has,” Swift wrote. “It’s her right to call out anyone who has double standards about gay vs straight love interests.” You can check out Taylor Swift’s Tumblr post in the article below.
