Taylor Swift Is Doing An Excellent Job Turning Hailee Steinfeld Into Taylor Swift 2.0

Hailee Steinfeld and Taylor Swift attending Romeo and Juliet premiere September 2013If Taylor Swift was a mad scientist, I still don’t think she would do as good a job crafting a mini-version of herself in a lab than she’s doing with Hailee Steinfeld in her real life. In case you’re not aware, the two of them are improbable best friends, especially given that Taylor is twenty-three and Hailee is sixteen. I don’t know how these two even met, but apparently they’re inseparable somehow, dressing up in matching outfits for structured hang-out sessions and whispering secrets in each others ears at sleepovers. Aka it’s the real deal.

And up until now, I thought this friendship was mostly a frothy confection whipped up inside Taylor’s own head, because I never heard Hailee talk about it. But that ends today, because we have our first proof that Hailee is absorbing Swiftiness at an alarming rate. Here are the answers she gave to People Magazine for their One Last Thing segment.

“I recently went to Rhode Island with a couple of girlfriends. We walked on the beach, listened to music, did arts and crafts and baked Rice Krispies treats. Just random and spontaneous things.”

Random and spontaneous in the same sentence as arts and crafts? This reeks of Swift. I sense her immaculate fingerprints all over it. And it gets worse. When asked what the last concert she attended was, she says:

“My friend Taylor Swift’s. We connected a few years ago; she’s like a big sister to me. She’s the best listener. I feel like I can call or text her wherever she is in the world and she’ll always be there.”

How did this happen? Can someone explain this to me? The world is challenging enough for me to understand with only one Taylor Swift in it; I don’t know if I could handle a second. This time next year we’ll all be getting death threats from Swifties and Steinies both, and I don’t know about you, but I’m definitely not ready for that.

      If best friends had couple names, theirs would also be Haylor. I’m not saying the Illuminati is real but…

      • Jenni

        Umm Haylor is Harry and Taylor.

      • Olivia Wilson

        Sharing is caring, Jenni. Harry’s willing to share.

    • Katy

      Hailee recently said they met through Emma Stone, Taylor’s former BFF. BTW, I also never understood that friendship, but at least they were the same age…


      • gayle

        Yeah I never understood that friendship either! I just couldn’t see Emma Stone putting up with Taylor’s nonsense.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        It makes me think differently about Emma, if I’m being honest.

      • Katy

        Well, they met when they were much younger, I think around when they were 19 or 20? I think they met through a makeup artist that they shared. They were tight for a while, but I haven’t heard any sightings or seen any pics of Taylor with Emma for the past couple of years. I think they kinda drifted apart. Emma seems to have grown up and Taylor seems stuck at 16. They’re both very different so I’m not surprised that friendship didn’t last.

        Taylor was at Emma’s birthday party last December. I don’t think there’s any reason to think they’re not friends anymore. They’ve been friends for around 6 years now, so I think they can go a few months without being publicly spotted together before assuming that.

      • Jenny

        Um, the last time I heard Taylor or Emma talk about each other in interviews was like, 4 months ago.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Trouble in paradise!

      • Heather

        Why would you feel differently about Emma? I’d feel differently if they were still BFFs but they don’t even hang out anymore. They were friends back when they were younger and when Taylor was way less annoying.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        That’s fair.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Everything is so confusing!

    • elle

      Yeah I’m not sure how a 16 and 22 year old can be friends…..that is super perplexing. Really arts and crafts? Rice crispy treats? I honestly have no words for that

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        The only words I have are ‘Taylor’ and ‘Swift’.

    • kevinnyc

      Can 23 year old have 16 year old sister? Can sisters be friends? No?
      Even though this article mentioned about Swifties and Steinies, I don’t think those are their targets. Look at all the comments before me, their targets are Directioners or other fans.
      Read this article carefully, they even mentioned about DEATH THREATS, think about it, WHY?
      Don’t fight against each other, that is what they want to see and laugh about. Do you want to be laughed about?
      Please comment to the writer. That’s the purpose of COMMENT.

        I got nothing to that!
        Loved this article, rather chilling – Emma Stone did not see that at all.

      • kevinnyc

        I am not a native speaker, your article is good for me to practice English, thank you for that.
        I tried different ways to comment and figured out the most reasonable way (not this one because I just want to stop commenting on this kind of articles forever) is the most popular and acceptable way which I got most thump ups(How many thumps up did you get?). Why not write some reasonable articles?
        Now my English is much better than before(I know I am still not good enough), thanks to all the other interesting articles most of which are twisted rumors and easier for me to point out how stupid they are.
        I’ve decided to stop this kind of stupidity. My real interest is NUTRITION not entertainment even though I respect Taylor Swift very much for her professionalism, creativity and wisdom (she is on the higher level than all of us to treat this kind of ridiculous articles, she just ignores them).
        Thank you again for this interesting article.

    • violet

      who the fuck wants to know about taylor swift? can’t you guys find someone better to talk good things about or someone worse to write horrible things about? so boring

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Thanks for reading!

    • Hero Zero

      Alexis, you write the best Taylor Swift articles on the net. And thankfully Swift gives you alot of material to work with. I love you both.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        Oh my gosh, thank you so much! I really appreciate it! You’re great.

    • Daniel

      I’m a 26 year old and 2 of my closest friends are 36 and 42. I work in the film industry. They’re fellow artists with ambition and similar paradigms. Get over yourselves. They’re friends who seem to support each other. Have none of you had ebbs and flows with friendships? It feels good to mentor someone, especially if you have wisdom to offer. For all of the negative energy coming Taylor Swift’s way, I bet you she’s pretty damn smart. Those songs she writes are good, ya know. She works hard.
      Also, if these two girls are friends tomorrow, wanna get married, or wanna have nothing to do with each other, how does it affect any of us at all? If Taylor and Emma Stone being friends changes your opinion of Emma Stone then you went from ‘not knowing her at all’ to ‘not knowing her at all’.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        It affects me because I write for a celebrity news blog. Just to answer your question.

      • trotter

        Excuse me, please do not include the word “news” in any description of yourself. That would imply that you actually care about the factual content of your fabricated stories. I would suggest a better name for your thing would be Celebrity Cyberbully.

      • Alexis Rhiannon

        I’ll submit that title change to my superiors, but I can’t guarantee we can get it onto my business card on any kind of timely basis.

        ohmygosh your comment is the best I’ve ever seen, and i’m not even a taylor swift fan
