Taylor Swift’s first purchase after signing a record deal was straight out of Mean Girls

Taylor Swift used her first post-record deal purchase to emulate one of the most iconic characters in cinema.

On Friday, the two-part documentary on Taylor and Scooter Braun's feud over her music masters titled Taylor Swift vs Scooter Braun: Bad Blood premiered. The first part focuses on Taylor's version of the story while the second episode shows Scooter's side of the story.

Taylor's stardom started when she was first signed to Big Machine as a teenager in the early 2000s. She signed a six-album deal where she wouldn't have ownership of any of the masters, a typical deal of the time.

During the second episode, Zing Tsjeng, a journalist and author, explained what Taylor did with her first paycheck when she got signed to Big Machine. "Famously she used her first paycheck to buy a Lexus convertible as a kind of snub to the popular girls," she explained.

And Taylor reportedly had a reason to buy the expensive car. "She’s talked about this as being a real kind of F.U. moment in her career where she kind of says, 'You know, you girls were busy not inviting me to things, going to parties while I’ve just used my first paycheck to buy the car that Regina George drives in Mean Girls,'" Zing said.

Regina George, played by Rachel McAdams, is known as the ultimate 'mean girl,' in the film and in pop culture. Zing used this moment to illustrate that Taylor doesn't forget what people do to her, like Scooter buying her masters.

"It kind of really shows you what she was about from a very young age. She’s really hardworking, she’s super talented, but she likes to kind of keep score. She’s not above holding a grudge and she likes to get one over other people," Zing said.

Taylor gave a statement to the series that read: "Taylor has completely moved on from this saga and has turned what started out as an extreme situation into one of the most fulfilling creative endeavors of her life. None of these men will ever be able to take away from Taylor’s legacy as a songwriter, singer, director, philanthropist, and advocate for artists’ rights."
