Cindy Crawford just revealed that she is a Taylor Swift stan and we can’t say we didn’t see it coming. Of course powerful women support one another! The ’90s modeling icon took to TikTok to allude to her loyalty as a Swiftie in a hilariously clever way. The 57-year-old filmed herself in a black blazer and tailored pants set as she wheeled a large trash can across her driveway.

“The trash (almost always) takes itself out…,” she captioned the Dec. 7 video, which was set to the sound of Swift’s “Bad Blood.” The mom of two starred in the Reputation track’s music video in 2015.

Crawford cited to a quote that Swift, a 12-time Grammy Award-winning artist, said in her TIME Person of the Year article.

“There is one thing I’ve learned: My response to anything that happens, good or bad, is to keep making things. Keep making art,” the 33-year-old said. “But I’ve also learned there’s no point in actively trying to quote unquote defeat your enemies. Trash takes itself out every single time.”

The “You Belong With Me” singer alluded to her struggle with men in the music industry. Most everyone knows about the viral incident when rapper Kanye West interrupted Swift’s Best Female Video Award acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2009. In 2016, he released his song “Famous,” which took an unwarranted dig at Swift with his “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that b---- famous” lyric.

“It’s not lost on me that the two great catalysts for this [major success now] happening were two horrendous things that happened to me,” Swift explained. “The first was getting canceled within an inch of my life and sanity. The second was having my life’s work taken away from me by someone who hates me.”

Swift also mentioned the reasons behind her decision to re-record her first six albums. When her old label, Big Machine Records, was sold to Scooter Braun—“someone who actively wanted them for nefarious reasons”—she lost the rights to her catalogue.

Whenever someone licensed one of those songs, Braun would be the one to profit. Because Swift writes all her songs, she owns the musical composition copyright and is able to re-record them. The Tennessee native has been with Republic Records since 2018, so she owns her four most recent albums (Lover, Folklore, Evermore and Midnights), as well as her four Taylor’s Version re-records.
