Camilla Belle Hasn’t Forgotten About That Song Taylor Swift Allegedly Wrote About Her

Before there was "Bad Blood," there was "Better Than Revenge."

Posted on

Taylor Swift may have settled things with Nicki Minaj this morning, but that doesn't mean everyone is ready to move on from pop music's Great Twitter War of 2015.

I thought I was being called out. I missed the point, I misunderstood, then misspoke. I'm sorry, Nicki. @NICKIMINAJ

That means so much Taylor, thank you. @taylorswift13 ❤️❤️❤️

Living under a rock? Here's what has happened so far:
• The VMA nominations were announced on Tuesday morning.

• Nicki's "Anaconda" video wasn't nominated for Video of the Year and she spent the afternoon tweeting about the snub.

• Taylor felt like Nicki was calling her out and responded defensively on Twitter.

• Ed Sheeran and Bruno Mars got involved.

• Nicki's (ex?) boyfriend Meek Mill started a Twitter war of his own, accusing Drake of using a ghostwriter.

• Katy Perry got involved.

• Taylor apologized to Nicki; Nicki accepted.

Now actress Camilla Belle has stepped into the fray, tweeting her support for Katy Perry.

@katyperry Couldn't have said it better...


In 2010, Taylor released her third album, Speak Now. The record seemed to touch on the breakup and included a song called "Better Than Revenge," which has long been rumored to be about Camilla and her relationship with Joe.

Sample lyric: "She's not a saint / And she's not what you think / She's an actress, whoa / She's better known / For the things that she does / On the mattress, whoa."

After the song was released, Taylor was accused of slut-shaming and generally behaving in a less-than-feminist manner.

I was 18 when I wrote that. That's the age you are when you think someone can actually take your boyfriend. Then you grow up and realize no one can take someone from you if they don't want to leave.
