Find out why Tay­lor Swift keeps send­ing peo­ple flow­ers.

Tay­lor Swift, 27, ap­par­ently de­ter­mined to keep up her mean nice-girl rep­u­ta­tion, sent com­peti­tor Cardi B, 24, a bou­quet of flow­ers to con­grat­u­late the rap­per af­ter her hit “Bo­dak Yel­low” bumped “Look What You Made Me Do” from the top spot on the Bill­board chart. But haters ques­tioned Tay­lor’s mo­tives: One on­line critic called the ges­ture “the ul­ti­mate power move,” while Newsweek asked, “Is this one of those things where you send your en­e­mies su­per-ex­pen­sive gifts to let them know just how morally su­pe­rior you are to them?” For her part, Cardi B took the gift at face value, ex­press­ing de­light — and ef­fu­sive praise for Tay-tay, of course — on In­sta­gram. Flow­ers do seem to be Tay­lor’s go-to gift: She’s sent them to Danc­ing With the Stars com­peti­tor Vic­to­ria Arlen, 2016 Amer­ica’s Got Tal­ent win­ner Grace Van­der­waal and even Right Said Fred’s “I’m Too Sexy” singers Richard and Fred Fair­brass (whose hit song she sam­pled). Even so, if some­one car­ry­ing flow­ers comes knock­ing at Katy Perry’s house, maybe she should pre­tend she isn’t home.
