Taylor Swift is no stranger to criticism, but now the Beyhive has come for her after she put on what many say is a direct (and poorly executed) ripoff of Beyonce’s Homecoming performance at Coachella during the 2019 Billboard Music Awards.
Beyonce put on a historic performance she titled “Homecoming” at this past year’s Coachella festival, where she headlined. She followed up the performance with a documentary of the same name on Netflix, which reportedly brought the singer upwards of $60 million just for the special.
At last night’s Billboard Music Awards, Taylor Swift opened the show with a performance of her latest hit “ME!” in what many saw as a clear copycat performance of Beychella. So much so, in fact, that Twitter created the hashtag #Mayochella.
The performance featured a marching band, drums, costumes, and more, but many said it lacked the flavor and originality of Bey’s performance.
