Chloe Grace Moretz Tells That She Refused Joining Taylor Swift's Squad

Unlike Woody Allen, Taylor Swift only joins clubs that would allow a person like her to become a member. Take a look at the “Bad Blood” singer’s exclusive #squad: Cara Delevingne, Selena Gomez, Martha Hunt, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Hailee Steinfeld, Lily Aldridge, Karlie Kloss. These (mostly white) women are all pop stars and/or models, and according to actress Chloë Grace Moretz, squads “appropriate exclusivity. They’re cliques!”

How not fetch.

The Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising star told Complex that she was asked to join #squad, but declined the invitation — all she’ll say about Swift is, “She’s a very talented person.” It’s not hard to read between these lines.

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. I can practically feel her urge to unleash bubbling and rising to the top of her throat. Just then a smile spreads across her moon-shaped face, the padlock that keeps whatever’s in her mind just right there, and she says, measuredly, “She’s a very talented person.” “You can talk to me about these things, you know,” I say back. “You know I can’t!” she laughs.

Moretz later expanded on her views of feminism. “It’s about equality,” she said, “and it’s not just about women being powerful. It’s about races being powerful; genders being powerful.” #Squad isn’t about equality, no matter how many inspiring acceptance speeches Swift gives. There’s a “you vs. us” vibe to the posse, who come across as “performance props” rather than role models. #Squad isn’t for winners — it’s for tools.
