In Appreciation of Katharine McPhee’s Shady-as-Hell Twitter
You'll forgive us if we jump the gun a bit on #FollowFriday, but Katharine McPhee is not one to sleep on where Twitter is concerned.
McPhee, who most recently starred in the Broadway hit Waitress and got her start in the industry as a finalist on Season 5 of American Idol, delighted her followers earlier this week when she shaded the hell out of Taylor Hicks, who beat her for the Idol crown unexpectedly in 2006.
Pretty great, right?
Well, when we took a more critical look at McPhee's timeline, it turned out that expert shade was hardly an anomaly (at least during the past year, during which she's definitely stepped up her game). While McPhee might be most famous for her sky-high wails or acting acumen, she's proven she's also a consummate comedian, too — at least where a certain social media platform is concerned.
Below, we've racked up some of McPhee's greatest Twitter-hits. Consider them, if you will, a Master Class in Twitter-shade.
