Taylor Swift: Did She Shade Justin Bieber?

by at .

Taylor Swift made it very clear at the 2016 iHeartRadio Music Awards:

She totally and completely loves Calvin Harris.

As previously documented, Swift stared lovingly at Harris when the DJ won a trophy at the event and then also singled him out during one of her acceptance speeches.

But the singer seemed to have the exact opposite reaction earlier in the evening when Justin Bieber was introduced to kick off the awards ceremony.

Just consider the GIF shared above.

Both Taylor and Calvin clap twice for Bieber out of sheer politeness... and then proceed to drink some water and totally ignore the subsequent performance, which you can see here:

Typically, of course, this may seem like an over-analysis; like a celebrity gossip blog trying to stir up controversy when there is none.

But there's a pretty well-documented history of Swift disliking Bieber for the way he has mistreated her best friend, Selena Gomez, over the years.

Back in December, Swift allegedly told Selena to stay away from Bieber.

There was also that time when Selena and Justin smooched backstage at the Billboard Music Awards and it appeared to make Swift visibly ill.

Remember that? Here's a refresher:

So it's not out of the realm of possibility that Swift purposely did not applaud with enthusiasm for Bieber last night.

After all, as hard as it may be to believe, Taylor Swift does not get along with every single celebrity out there...
