Taylor Swift dominates the pop charts and music awards shows, and she has a gathering of model friends to defend her honor at every turn. That’s a good thing for Swift, who ends up entering Twitter feuds on a monthly basis, and shading fellow pop stars equally as often. Swift knows how to hold a grudge, and she inspires others to do the same.

Swift’s latest rival is Ed Droste, lead singer of indie band Grizzly Bear. His hipster sensibilities are offended by the mass consumption of Swift. Ed’s been complaining about Swift for years.

He also tweeted and deleted his impression of someone (Swift) upon their first meeting: “Met a celebrity I always speculated was terribly calculated and mean, and they exceeded all my expectations of rudeness and arrogance. HATE. I’m too petrified of their insane power. No need to speculate, just HAD to voice my disgust.”

Oh, the shade! This potboiler of a feud has reached new simmering heights after Swift picked up the Haim girls as part of her squad. Haim is opening for Swift on her current tour, and the ladies attended Swift’s Fourth of July party last month.

happy 4th, we love you

Droste is also besties with Haim. He snapped this photo during a Broad City viewing party.

This presents an uncomfortable situation. Ed continues to stew over Swift “stealing” Haim. A few days ago, he tweeted this gem with a snapshot of a negative tabloid article about Swift.
