Zendaya Likes Taylor Swift’s Post
- On Wednesday, Taylor Swift shared an Instagram video of herself posing with Beyoncé at the premiere of her concert film Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour. In the clip, Beyoncé could be seen smiling and tossing popcorn next to Taylor.
- In the Instagram post, Taylor gushed about Beyoncé and the Renaissance singer’s influence and generosity toward her.
- Taylor’s video has received over four million likes on Instagram. But fans went wild after Taylor’s former friend Zendaya liked her Instagram post after the pair allegedly fell out years ago.
- Zendaya’s support of Taylor came as a shock to fans. Zendaya was a member of Taylor’s squad and famously appeared in the singer’s star-studded music video for Bad Blood in 2014.
- However, the pair’s relationship cooled after Zendaya liked some tweets shading Taylor in 2016 — after Kim Kardashian infamously leaked the singer’s phone call with Kanye West on Snapchat.

- Zendaya liked a few tweets dissing Taylor, including one that said: “I’m glad Zendaya was never really down with that whole Taylor squad.”

Does This Mean Zendaya and Taylor Swift are Friends Again?
- Many Swifties were thrilled after Zendaya liked Taylor’s post and dubbed it “as a day for the history books.” Several social media users hoped the pair would become friends again and joked that “the world is healing”.
- Some fans predicted that Zendaya might appear in the new Bad Blood music video for the singer’s rerecording of 1989 (Taylor’s Version) to be released on October 27.
- However, other fans could not forgive Zendaya for shading Taylor in 2016: “Girl we don’t forget, stay away from her.”
- Meanwhile, other fans suggested that Zendaya only liked Taylor’s post because it featured her good friend Beyonce. A social media user commented: “Thinking Zendaya liked that post for any other reason than Beyoncé is delusional. She hasn’t liked a Taylor post in years.”
