Taylor Swift’s girl gang of ridiculously photogenic friends seems like a milennial’s index of everyone who’s anyone. The A-list ‘squad’ encompasses everyone from modern day supers like Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Cara Delevingne and Karlie Kloss to musicians like Selena Gomez, Lorde and the Haim sisters to writers like Lena Dunham.
However, it seems that there’s one rising star who’s not on board with the squad – 19-year-old actress Chloe Grace Moretz.
In an interview with Complex magazine, Chloe, who has been acting since the age of 7, was asked whether she’d been invited to join Instagram’s most famous girl gang.
Chloe confirms with a ‘yes’ but, as writer Andrew Gruttadaro notes, adds ‘nothing more,’ until eventually replying ‘She’s a very talented person.’ Cryptic or what?
Gruttadaro may well be reading #BadBlood drama into an offhand comment from the actress, who most famously starred as Hit Girl in Kick Ass, but he adds that ‘She seems to want to say a lot of things – perhaps about the ‘Bad Blood’ singer – but already knows the repercussions of those things becoming public.’
Elsewhere in the piece, Moretz is more forthright in her anti-squad stance, claiming that ‘They appropriate exclusivity. They’re cliques!’ It’s not the first time that the actress has spoken out against squads, having previously told Nylon: ‘I agree with having a good core group of friends, but the issue I have with squads is that it creates exclusivity […] I was never included in those things when I was a kid.’
As oblique as they may be, Chloe’s comments on the inner workings of Taylor’s inner circle are pretty intriguing. After all, who doesn’t want to know how the chosen ones are invited to join Taylor’s select gang? Instagram direct message? A wicker basket filled with Karlie’s Kookies? A LinkedIn connection request? We need answers…
