Pretty Little Liars star Troian Bellisario recently chatted about the U.S. presidential campaign with Cosmopolitan, but (perhaps inevitably), the conversation steered toward Hollywood politics and the current controversy embroiling the celebrity world. We’re talking, of course, about the, uh, famous feud between Taylor Swift and Kim Kardashian (which, by the way, is far from over — at least if Kanye West has anything to say about it).
Asked if she was Team Kim or Team Taylor, Bellisario wasted no time affirming her strict anti-Kardashian stance.
“Oh god, I have such an aversion to the Kardashians because I literally don’t understand people’s obsession with them and I don't want to accept them as our closest thing to a royal family,” she said.
But not so fast ... that doesn’t mean Bellisario’s a Swiftie, either.
“So I guess I would be Team Taylor Swift?” she deduced by simple process of elimination, before deciding that doesn’t exactly align with her beliefs either. “However, I’m so appalled by what I consider to be her false feminism. It seems like she’s this person who’s like, ‘Sisterhood!’ and then she does nothing but tear down the women that were once her friends.”
Whether you agree with Bellisario or not, you’ll probably commend her for ultimately declining to choose a side (or choosing to “be excluded from this narrative,” if you will).
“Is it possible to just be, like ... this is a two-party system that I don’t want to be a part of? Can I just say that? Can I say that I would choose the Green Party in this?”
You sure can, Troian ... because sometimes neutrality is the best way to avoid getting bad blood on your hands.
