Victoria’s Secret Model Jessica Hart Reignites Feud with Taylor Swift
When Taylor Swift performed at the 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, model Jessica Hart admitted, “I think, you know what, god bless her heart. I think she’s great. But, I don’t know, to me, she didn’t fit.” And thus the feud was started. The 28-year-old returned to perform at the show the following year, but the 31-year-old did not. Did Tay have something to do with the casting choice? Perhaps.
“It’s not been announced that Jessica is not walking, but it was a direct request from Taylor that this be the case if she were to go,” a source told New York Daily News at the time. This claim was later denied by Victoria Secret’s chief marketing officer Ed Rasek, however.
It’s been several years since the drama went down, but Jessica clearly still isn’t over it. The Australian beauty reignited her feud with the “Delicate” singer by wearing a sweatshirt embroidered with the words “four letter bad word” in red and “Taylor Swift” in black right underneath.
The brand that created the sweatshirt, Eddie Eddie by Billy Tommy, confirmed that the piece was custom-ordered by Jessica. It isn’t clear which four-letter word she was referring to, but there are several that come to mind that have quite a negative connotation (hint: one starts with ‘F’ and one starts with ‘C’).
Jessica tried to do damage control after initially dissing T.Swift in 2013, saying “I adore Taylor Swift and I was so excited to be with her at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Taylor’s amazing musical performance on that runway is nothing compared to what we do. I could never get up there and do what she does; she is a true rock star and she absolutely killed it the other night.”
So which is it? She says she’s a fan of Tay, but then orders a sweatshirt specifically made to diss her. Color us confused.
