There has been bad blood between Grammy award-winning singers, Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift for a long time now and it doesn’t appear to be going away anytime soon.
It appears the “Sorry” singer has watched Swift’s post-Lasik eye surgery where she had a meltdown over a banana while drugged up and he is making light of her ordeal.
29-year-old Swift’s mom, Andrea had secretly filmed the singer post Lasik eye surgery while she was drugged up and then given the video to Jimmy Fallon to play on The Tonight Show. Swift appeared woozy in the video and wailed over a banana as she wondered where its head was.
Swift was surprised when Fallon played the video of her in such an altered state for all the world to see. In the video, Swift who was picked up by her mom from the doctor after the eye surgery and had no idea she was being recorded broke off a banana from a bunch and then plaintively wailed, “That wasn’t the one I wanted” and started to cry, telling her mom she wanted a different banana. She started peeling it and when her mom said she’ll eat it if Taylor didn’t want it, she replied, “But it doesn’t have a head.”
Swift is later seen in bed trying to eat the banana, but her hand-eye coordination skills hadn’t come back and she was fumbling to get it in her mouth. When she seemed to be dozing off, Taylor told her mom “I’m not asleep, my mind is alive.” After Jimmy aired the clip, Taylor was aghast, telling him “I’m sorry, I can’t think about anything else,”
25-year-old Bieber in his own released video takes a dig at her by mocking her woozy state. His wife Hailey Baldwin filmed her husband from across their minimalist kitchen during an Instagram live stream on Oct. 6. He was on the other side of the room when he moaned,
“It’s not the banana that I wanted,” while Hailey could be heard laughing and saying, “That’s so funny.”
He then grabbed at some fruit and yelled “It has no head,” similar to what Swift said about the banana in her post-surgery video.
The bad blood between both singers appears to have worsened after Bieber’s manager and close pal Scooter Braun who is Swift’s nemesis bought up the rights to her entire album catalogue in June.
