Camilla Belle Subtweets Taylor Swift, Hints Karma Is Better Than Revenge
Camilla Belle has stayed quiet on most things Taylor Swift throughout the course of her career. But Kim Kardashian's decision to release that damning audio evidence last night (July 17) appears to have inspired the actress to subtweet the "Bad Blood" singer about karma and revenge.
“No need for revenge. Just sit back & wait. Those who hurt you will eventually screw up themselves & if you’re lucky, God will let you watch,” Belle tweeted, along with the hashtags #quoteoftheday #happymonday and #felizsegunda.
While Belle did not directly address Swift, the quote's use of the word "revenge" directly invokes memories of Swift's 2010 Speak Now track "Better Than Revenge."
The searing call-out -- which many have long-believed is about Belle and her relationship with Swift's ex, Joe Jonas -- garnered Swift some negative press for its slut-shaming and misogynistic lyrics ("She's not a saint and she's not what you think / She's an actress / She's better known for the things that she does / On the mattress").
Swift eventually addressed the controversy in a 2014 interview with The Guardian where she said, "I was 18 when I wrote that. That’s the age you are when you think someone can actually take your boyfriend. Then you grow up and realize no one can take someone from you if they don’t want to leave.”
Belle never publicly addressed the track, but she did respond to a tweet Katy Perry posted last year that was also aimed at Swift, following the release of the Perry diss track "Bad Blood":
