The new mom sparked speculation that she was poking fun at Swift's girl squad when she posted an Instagram pic of L'Oréal's campaign for the brand's Color Riche lipstick collection. A slew of stars posed for the photo, including the former Gossip Girl actress, Julianne Moore, Naomi Watts and John Legend.
"Soooo, turns out this WASN'T a video shoot for John Legend's cover of Bad Blood," Lively wrote. "@lorealparisofficial blew it out for this one. My #pinkobsession is exposed now. Ok your turn. I won't tell! #AlsoTurnsOutJohnLegendIsntCoveringBadBlood Time to start a petition!"
While the 28-year-old actress seemed to just be asking Legend to cover Swift's hit song, some of the Swifties saw this as a dig at the 25-year-old singer.
Defending her caption, Lively posted another pic of her husband Ryan Reynolds' family backstage with Swift during her 1989 tour.
"Umm whoever thought I was throwin' shade clearly doesn't know I have a 'Taylor Swift Please Be My Wife Voo Doo Doll,'" she wrote with the hashtag #obsessed. "Look how rad she is here making my niece Heather feel like a rock star. Love my Canadian family almost as much as I love Taylor Lively. I mean Swift. Ok, FIIINE we can hyphenate our last names. Xo Blake Swift-Lively 4eva."
"I’m not trying to be in the squad." Cyrus told The New York Times. "None of my friends are famous and not because of any other reason than I just like real people who are living real lives, because I’m inspired by them."
