Meghan Trainor of "All About That Bass" fame is all about shaking off the haters, and as a result, paid tribute to Taylor Swift's latest hit with a unique twist.

During an appearance on the Dan and Maz radio show, Trainor gave "Shake It Off' an acoustic spin, aided by only a ukelele and her own killer vocals:

As if that weren't awesome (and surprisingly catchy) enough, Meghan Trainor briefly rapped near the end in a special shout-out to Taylor Swift herself:

"So Taylor, shake 'em off, don't let 'em get to ya / Go ahead and dance like there ain't nobody watchin' ya / Shake like a polaroid picture / You got the fans, we wanna dance witcha."

Okay, Meghan, you rule. We are big fans. But do you troll your own fan sites and post in the forums about all the festive things you love about fall?

We'd love to see her replicate Taylor Swift's effort in that department.

Altogether now: “Haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate..."

On an edition of E! News last Thursday, bullying Dance Moms choreographer took aim at Taylor Swift, saying she isn’t a fan of the singer’s dance moves in the video for "Shake It Off."

"She should have had the Abby Lee Miller Treatment as a child," Miller said. "The dancers are wonderful. I love Taylor Swift - I think she's a great role model for the girls - but I like her sitting in a chair with her guitar, singing."

Bring It On
What do you have to say about cheerleaders NOW, Taylor?

Clearly, Miller doesn't get it, a fact we deride each week when we watch Dance Moms online and see her clash with parents.

Swift knows she's an awkward dancer. She's embracing that fact in her latest video. Sheesh!

We already knew that Taylor Swift was a crossover star, considering her success in both the country and pop music worlds.

But we still didn't see this coming!

The artist - whose fan base typically consists of teenage females - has been honored by the members of the Delta Sigma Phi Beta Mu fraternity at Transylvania University via one of the greatest lip dubs you'll ever witness.

It starts with one guy getting woken up with a hangover and popping a couple pills and then - BAM! - we're off and singing! Or pretending to sing, at least.

Turns out, just like anyone else who has heard this catchy tune, these college students simply can't "Shake It Off."

Pretty amazing, right? Sort of puts those Barack Obama lip dubs and Brian Williams lip dubs to shame.

As previously detailed, it is totally on between Taylor Swift and Katy Perry.

The "Shake It Off" singer took her feud public with Perry an unnamed artist when she told Rolling Stone that she penned a new song titled "Bad Blood" about a singer who tried to "sabotage" a recent arena tour of hers.

Perry then pretty much confirmed herself as the target of Swift's wrath when she Tweeted about a "Regina George in sheep's clothing" soon after Taylor's remarks went viral.

Amazing Mean Girls reference aside, what is the basis for this beef between pop superstars?

According to TMZ, it boils down to three backup dancers who worked for Perry first... then joined Swift’s tour in 2012... then left Swift's tour once Katy went back on the road.

As everyone in the free world now knows, Taylor Swift has learned to shake off the haters. All the way to number-one, in fact.

But there's one fellow artist Swift admits she can't just forget about, so much so that she penned the upcoming song "Bad Blood" about this unnamed individual.

"For years, I was never sure if we were friends or not. She would come up to me at awards shows and say something and walk away, and I would think, 'Are we friends, or did she just give me the harshest insult of my life?'" Swift told Rolling Stone.

"[Then last year] she did something so horrible. I was like, 'Oh, we're just straight-up enemies.' And it wasn't even about a guy!"
