Black Twitter Slams Taylor Swift For Ripping Off Beyonce’s Beychella Performance; Sparks Hashtag  #Mayochella”

On Wednesday night, Taylor Swift kicked off the 2019 Billboard Music Awards with her new single, “Me” However, before she even hit the stage, Black Twitter called the songstress out for jacking Beyonce’s entire ‘Homecoming’ theme. 

To kick off her performance, an all-pink marching band marched across the stage to a whistle and cadence, as Swift emerged from the back to strike a pose. Backed by dancers in pastel colors and fringe, Swift performed alongside Brendon Urie, as Black Twitter renamed the Billboard set, “Mayochella.” 

“Was it just me or was Taylor Swift’s performance a little too similar to Beyonce and her Coachella set,” one user wrote, while another said, “Y’all not gon tell me Taylor Swift didn’t watch Beyonce Homecoming before that performance tonight.” 

“T.Swift knew EXACTLY what she was doing by performing this…To get PRESS,” another wrote. 

Others pulled receipts of Beyonce’s longtime use of the marching band, which dated back to her Destiny’s Child days. A few users also pulled receipts of Swift’s history of biting Beyonce’s work, including her “Look What You Made Me Do” video, which was similar to Beyonce’s iconic “Formation” and “Hold Up” videos. Meanwhile, the rest plugged Beyonce’s ”Homecoming” doc and renamed Swift’s performance, ”Mayochella.”
