Manuela has accused Taylor Swift of stealing visuals
Not long ago, Manuela took to social media and accused the All Too Well singer Taylor Swift of stealing visuals from her visual EP Glimmer for the music video of her song Anti-Hero, which came out on Friday.
‘I’m literally a #swiftie so it’s simultaneously painful and such an honor to even beg this question – am i on a moodboard??’ she captioned the recording. In the clip, Taylor’s video played on the top, meanwhile, Manuela’s clip played on the bottom.

In another Instagram Story, Manuela stated that she knows so many people who follow her, that are ‘terrified to side with’ her because it ‘implies that they’re against Taylor.’ She went on to say, ‘She is POWERFUL. Who wouldn’t be terrified? But please: how do you think this whole thing makes me, a Swiftie, feel?’
Manu further added, ‘Can you picture me staying up to listen to midnights and to watch the Anti-Hero music video premiere only to watch my work play out at me? A #1 trending video on YouTube a copy paste of mine. Having to read promo posts that wink at a concept album like mine. Unfortunately I will not be shutting up about this anytime soon.’
