Taylor Swift Performed With a Drum Line at the BBMAs and the Beyhive Was Not Impressed
Taylor Swift opened the 2019 Billboard Music Awards with a glittery performance of her new Brendon Urie-assisted hit, "ME!" And while Swifties totally stanned over the song's live debut, there was another fan group that was not impressed. The colorful performance began with a pastel pink drum line, and the Beyhive thought it looked a little too reminiscent of Beyonce's historic Beychella set. In fact, they were so unimpressed with T-Swift "gentrifying" Queen Bey's style that they made a hashtag: #mayochella
"I don’t know if y’all are seeing this but Taylor Swift is gentrifying Beyonce’s Coachella performance right now," one Beyhive member wrote on Twitter. "Beyoncé served us Fried Chicken with macaroni and cheese and collard greens with Hamhocks and homemade skillet cornbread And here come Taylor swift with rotisserie chicken and potato salad with raisins" tweeted another.
