Some of the squad at the MTV VMA'S.

Squad is a term used by the media to describe Taylor Swift's large yet close-knit circle of friends. The fact that some of her friends are successful models, actresses, and singers has also attracted attention.

Taylor's squad includes actresses such as Jaime King, Hailee Steinfeld, Sarah Hyland, and Emma Stone. Singers such as Lorde, Selena Gomez, Ed Sheeran. Models including Martha Hunt, Lily Aldridge, Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid, and Cara Delevingne are also a part of the squad. Many of the people in the squad have even appeared in Taylor's “Bad Blood” music video as well as onstage with Taylor at various stops during her 1989 World Tour. Several were with Taylor at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards and have stood by her whenever she has been blasted by others, such as singer/actress Miley Cyrus.

Cosmopolitan magazine has created a timeline for when all of her squad members joined. [1]


After the controversy of 2016 with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, and the 2019 Scooter Braun controversy, some of the members of the squad broke up, leaving only close friends who still defend Taylor to this day.

  • Kendall Jenner, being sisters with Kim, sided with her during the feud[3][4]
  • Lorde has made comments about Taylor, but taken them back in later interviews.[5] She is currently still friends with Taylor.
