Kathy Griffin Can’t Come to the Phone in This ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ Parody Video
Kathy Griffin is quite the busy bee, touring the world with Donald Trump and her ex-best friend Anderson Cooper in her crosshairs. To promote her concerts, she’s starring in a “Look What You Made Me Do” parody video, plopping herself in place of pop princess Taylor Swift.
The video shows Griffin at the forefront of a gaggle of gays wearing all black. She’s also in a tub full of jewels and on a throne of snakes. There is definitely some CGI going on here, we just can’t tell how much or how little. At times, it looks like her head doesn’t belong to the same body.
The video ends with Griffin picking up the phone. She proclaims that she can’t come to the phone right now. Why? “Cause she’s on a world tour.”

Griffin has been in headlines recently for attacking not only Trump and her former bestie Cooper, but also her former attorney Lisa Bloom.
Griffin posted a now-deleted video on her social media over the week where she begins, “I’m gonna have to blow the lid off fake feminism today.”
In the late-night video, Griffin continued: “There’s right and wrong, and I think it’s time to expose some stuff. I hired her [Bloom] for a couple of days during my Trump mask scandal. It didn’t go well.”
“If you want my Lisa Bloom statement, anybody, OK, here it is. Yes, I got Bloomed. Yes, I did not have a good experience with her. I felt that she and her husband exacerbated my personal situation. That horrible press conference was a disaster.”
Griffin added: “I’m not gonna sue Lisa Bloom. I don’t think Lisa Bloom should be shot, like people want to shoot me. So there’s my fucking statement.”
Bloom emailed The Daily Beast responding: “Kathy has now made a video about how women should stand together, and yet she’s attacked me, a lifetime women’s rights attorney, and not the rest of her team, all of whom were men.”
“This is sad, but I still believe that Kathy Griffin is one of the funniest comics alive, that she meant no ill will with the photo, and I wish her the best.”
