Here's Justin Bieber Covering a Taylor Swift Song—Again

Third time's the charm?

Justin Bieber seems to be trying really, really hard to get back in Taylor Swift's good graces. For the third time, the "Sorry" singer has covered one of Swift's hits—the second time for this particular song, "I Knew You Were Trouble."

While the Biebs may have sworn off Instagram for the time being, he recently made an appearance on Ellen DeGeneres' Snapchat where he sang a few lines from the popular T.Swift track.

The first time he covered "I Knew You Were Trouble" was back in June. He and DJ Martin Garrix did their own rendition of the song while in Nashville (Swift's hometown) for his Purpose tour.

Before that, it was "Teardrops on My Guitar," which Bieber sang during one of his many Carpool Karaoke sessions with James Corden.

It's no secret that Justin Bieber isn't exactly a card-carrying member of Taylor Swift's squad, and it's probably safe to say Swift isn't afflicted with Bieber Fever. Rumors of friction and tension between the two have been around for a while now—primarily due to the relationship drama between Bieber and his on-again-off-again girlfriend Selena Gomez, who is basically Swift's ride or die. And as we all know, Swift isn't one to easily relinquish a grudge, especially when the bad blood is regarding her bestie.

Swift has made it pretty clear already that she's only moderately impressed by Bieber's musical talent, so if he's looking to make amends with the pop princess, singing her music may not be the most effective method.

Or, maybe he just really likes singing along to Swift's songs, because who doesn't?
