The day after the Golden Globes, Taylor Swift is arguably the most talked-about celebrity -- and not because of what she wore.
The country crooner is the subject of gossip after she allegedly had a major sourpuss on her face when British songbird Adele, 24, accepted her Golden Globe for Best Original Song for "Skyfall."
The 22-year-old Swift was up for the award for "Safe and Sound," her track from "The Hunger Games."
Some Internet users have quipped that Swift was “not impressed,” a reference to how U.S. Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney looked after placing in third during the London Olympics.
Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton thought Swift gave Adele “stank” eye, and shared the clip on his website.
Social media users took to Twitter to share their thoughts on Swift’s reaction to losing to Adele:
“Taylor Swift is better at pretending to be surprised when she wins than happy for the other artist when she loses. #GoldenGlobes,” @DannyZuker tweeted.
“Taylor Swift's next single: "Chubby British Girl I Hate You" #meangirl #goldenglobes,” @kmaverick wrote, referring to the notion that the “We Are Never Getting Back Together” singer pens all her songs based on the drama in her life.
But the criticism over Swift’s face didn’t stop there — even Us Weekly readers went to the magazine’s website to share their thoughts on her now infamous sourpuss:
“The more and more that comes out about Taylor Swift, the more I don't think she's this sweetheart she plays off to be,” one commenter said.
Another added, “Anyone who falls for Swift's 'girl next door" routine isn't all that sharp.”
But the singer's fans or those who just don’t believe she gave Adele the stink eye are also posting their view of the situation on the Internet:
“It was hardly a smirk. She looked a bit disappointed but not smug. Stop trying to make something out of nothing,” Heather Langsdorf defended the country singer on the magazine’s site.
Adele hasn’t publicly commented on Swift’s snide reaction, but instead was elated when she won the Golden Globe for her work on “Skyfall:”
"Oh my god! Honestly, I'd come out for a night out with my friend," the Grammy winner, who just gave birth to her son in October, exclaimed upon winning the award. "We're new mums, we've literally come for a night out. I was not expecting this. Thank you so much!"
