"I don't understand the Taylor Swift squad at all," Baldwin told the Australian news site on Monday, December 5. "I don't know what having a squad means. I just have my friends and that's it."
"I don't think that you need to create a public squad," the 5-foot-8 blonde beauty, who is the daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin, continued. "I don't know what that proves. So I don't really understand the Taylor Swift squad at all."
The model also told Yahoo7 Be that she celebrated her 20th birthday last month with a small group of friends at an intimate gathering. "I was just with some of my really close friends — my sister, my cousin — and we just did a little 48-hour trip," she explained. "We were in Canada and it was just low-key and fun and it was exactly what I wanted."
Swift, meanwhile, often travels to public appearances and awards shows with her elite circle of squad members, including Selena Gomez — who, like Baldwin, previously dated Justin Bieber — Karlie Kloss and Hailee Steinfeld.
"It's not realistic," the "Confident" singer, 24, told Glamour magazine in October. "And I think that having a song and a video about tearing Katy Perry down ["Bad Blood"], that's not women's empowerment. We all do things that aren't but I have to ask myself, 'Am I content with calling myself a feminist?' Yes, because I speak out."
