Taylor Swift Bit Beychella at the BBMAs, & the Bey Hive Isn’t Having It—At All.

The Billboard Music Awards were last night (May 1), and for her live performance, Taylor Swift decided to tap into her inner Beyoncé… again. Her stage setup included a full marching band, which is just so ironic, considering Bey just released her Homecoming documentary just last month.

This wouldn’t be the first time she’s been called out for biting Bey. When the music video for “Look What You Made Me Do” came out, many drew comparisons to Beyoncé’s “Formation” video. Whether you agree with the accusations or not (we kind of do), it is Beyoncé. Who wouldn’t want to be her?

And didn’t someone say biting is the best form of flattery? That said, at least be somewhat original about it… and maybe wait more than two weeks after the work you’re biting dropped before you do it?

Just saying!

Peep the reactions below. Oh, and here are all the night’s winners.
