Abigail Breslin reportedly called Taylor Swift an “unstable cat lady” via social media, but when those who insinuated she’d slammed the singer took a closer look, it became clear that wasn’t really the case at all.
In a tweet that has since been removed from her account, Abigail Breslin wrote, “Cuz darling I’m a nightmare dressed like an emotionally unstable cat lady.” In the hook, Swift, 24, sings, “Cuz darling I’m a nightmare dressed like a daydream.”
Breslin was, in fact, modifying the lyrics to Taylor Swift’s song ‘Blank Space.’
She clarified in a new tweet for those who misinterpreted the initial one.
to clarify: my tweet earlier quoting a taylor swift lyric was me saying I AM AN EMOTIONALLY UNSTABLE CAT LADY. NOT TAYLOR. JSYK.

Abigail Breslin has actually dipped her toes in the music world with a new song called ‘You Suck.’ Both she and Taylor Swift are self-proclaimed cat ladies. Taylor has been spotted carrying one of her cats–Olivia Benson–with her in several photos. Breslin’s cat has its own Twitter account.

Taylor Swift admits she likes her cats better than–or at least as much as–some people.
“I’m not going to compromise the happiness and independence that I’ve found for just anybody. The idea of a date gives me a partial panic attack!” she said during an interview with People magazine. “But I’m fine! I have two cats. That’s all I need.”

So there’s clearly been no cat fight here. Abigail Breslin didn’t diss Taylor Swift by calling her a crazy cat lady. And even if she had–the ‘Shake It Off’ singer probably wouldn’t have taken the comment as an insult.
