Despite reports that Taylor Swift and Billie Eilish are embroiled in an ongoing feud, insiders claimed it’s much ado about nothing.

“Yeah, that’s all media … just press stuff. Billie likes Taylor’s music — even her songs are sounding more like Taylor’s,” a music industry insider who knows both camps told Paula Froelich of NewsNation.

Eilish, 22, recently took a swipe at the “Cruel Summer” singer’s long concerts, saying they are “literally psychotic.”

“I don’t even want that as a fan. My favorite artist in the world, I’m not trying to hear them for three hours.”

The X handle Taylor Swift Updates posted the diss to its page, and it garnered 9 million views and 1,600 comments, many bashing Eilish, with one incensed Swiftie retorting, “Billie doesn’t have enough songs to last her a 3 hour show.”

Back in 2014, when Swift took home her Billboard Woman of the Year award, she predicted Eilish’s future success.

“I really just feel like we need to continue to try and offer something to a younger generation of musicians,” Swift said then.

“Because somewhere right now your future woman of the year is probably sitting in a piano lesson or in a girls’ choir. Today, right now, we need to take care of her.”

Swift made a reference to that speech — and Eilish — in 2019 when she won Billboard’s Woman of the Decade award, the same year Eilish took home the award for Woman of the Year.

“I’ve since learned that at that exact moment, an 11-year-old girl in California really was taking piano lessons and really was in a girls’ choir,” Swift said.

“And this year she has been named Woman of the Year at the age of 17. Her name is Billie.”

On May 17, the singers both released albums, Swift, a new version of “The Tortured Poets Department,” which is still No. 1 on the Billboard album charts since its April 19 release, and Eilish, “Hit Me Hard And Soft,” which is in third.
