ET caught up with the 30-year-old Pretty Little Liars star at the 2016 Teen Choice Awards red carpet on Sunday, where she cleared the air on her recent less than complimentary comments regarding Swift that fired up some of the singer's fans on social media. Bellisario said she was "appalled" at what she called Swift's "false feminism" in an interview with Cosmopolitan, but also made it clear she was no fan of the Kardashians.
"First of all, I was asked between the Kardashians and Taylor Swift who I would choose and I basically... because I was at the Democratic National Convention, I was like, 'Can I vote Green Party on this?' Because I am not on either side," Bellisario explains to ET's Denny Directo. "I'm not taking sides. I'm not Kardashian, I'm not Swift."
"What I meant was that I literally don't know anything about Taylor Swift or the Kardashians, so please don't make me choose sides on this!" she adds.
The PLL star makes it clear that she's not aligning herself with either side of the famous feud.
"I really, like, don't know about either, don't like either one," she admits.
Bellisario says she wasn't aware of all the drama her comments would cause. In fact, it was actually her fiance's mother (Bellisario is engaged to Suits star Patrick J. Adams) that brought the uproar to her attention.
"All of a sudden ... I think my fiance's mom texted me and was like, 'What's your problem with Taylor Swift?' And I was like, 'What happened? Are you OK?' I was like, 'What's going on?' And then I started seeing all these fans were like, 'What do you have against Taylor? blah blah.' And I looked at the headlines and out of this entire political interview that I did, that was the one line that they took and I was like...'How?'"
"I'm so appalled by what I consider to be her false feminism," Bellisario told Cosmopolitan. "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."
"So is it possible to just be, like … this is a two-party system that I don't want to be a part of?" she added about Swift's feud with Kanye West and Kardashian. "Can I say that I would choose the Green Party in this?"
