Taylor Swift recently concluded her feud with Katy Perry in very memorable fashion:
latter dressed as a hamburger and appeared in the former’s latest music video.
And yet while this long-lasting hatchet was buried over the summer, we somehow doubt
Kim Kardashian will be donning any food-themed attire for any Taylor Swift project int he near future.
Because these two are STILL going at it!
Three years after their rivalry kicked off, Swift spoke to Vogue magazine and once again rehashed what happened and how it made her feel, trying to once again come out on top of Kim as though she were Ray J or something.
Take a deep breath and scroll down for the latest…
Can You Recap the Basis for This Feud Again?
Yes: Way back in July of 2016, Kardashian posted Snapchat videos of Swift talking with Kanye West about his song “Famous,” which featured the lyrics: “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous.”
Well, Swift had previously slammed Kanye for this song, making it sound as if she had no idea she would be referenced in such a negative manner.
She Was Therefore Exposed?
Yes, exactly. The conversation between Kanye and Swift that Kim made public featured Taylor being told about West’s lyrics and giving her approval.
Swift fired back at Kimye on Instagram three years back, saying memorably on her page: “I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative, one that I have never asked to be a part of, since 2009.” (That’s a reference to when Kanye interruped her speech at the MTV VMAs.)
She’s a Cold-Hearted Snake
Kim proceeded to trash Swift as a snake on multiple occasions.
Did This Have an Effect on Swift’s Career?
We’re pretty sure it did. Taylor mostly disappeared from the spotlight for around a year and her latest album has not sold nearly as well as her past albums.
Fast Forward 3 Years…
… and Swift is the cover woman for the latest issue of Vogue, rehashing the feud and how it made her feel.
Take It Away, Taylor. Again.
“A mass public shaming, with millions of people saying you are quote-unquote canceled, is a very isolating experience,” the singer recalled of the fallout from Kim exposing her call with Kanye all those summers ago.
The Hate Was Just So Strong
“I don’t think there are that many people who can actually understand what it’s like to have millions of people hate you very loudly,” Swift continued. “When you say someone is canceled, it’s not a TV show. It’s a human being. You’re sending mass amounts of messaging to this person to either shut up, disappear, or it could also be perceived as, kill yourself.”
“I realized I needed to restructure my life because it felt completely out of control,” she explained to Vogue. “I knew immediately I needed to make music about it because I knew it was the only way I could survive it. It was the only way I could preserve my mental health and also tell the story of what it’s like to go through something so humiliating.”
Is She Over It?
Not yet. Taylor went on to say that overcoming the ordeal was a “grieving process with so many micro emotions in a day.” The Grammy winner added that she would occasionally feel as if the hurt taught her something — and a short time later she’d think it was “horrible” and wonder why it had to happen.
So Strange, So Sucky
“It’s so strange trying to be self-aware when you’ve been cast as this always smiling, always happy ‘America’s sweetheart’ thing, and then having that taken away and realizing that it’s actually a great thing that it was taken away, because that’s extremely limiting,” Swift detailed.
So Swift is Thankful for Kim?
LOL, not quite. “We’re not going to go straight to gratitude with it. Ever,” she says here. “But we’re going to find positive aspects to it. We’re never going to write a thank-you note.”
Kim’s Actions Even May Have Gotten Donald Trump Elected?
Wait… what? Swift says she didn’t rally her fan base for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Presidential election due to the fallout from this scandal.
Expound on This, Please
“The summer before that election, all people were saying was ‘She’s calculated. She’s manipulative. She’s not what she seems. She’s a snake. She’s a liar,'” said Swift. “These are the same exact insults people were hurling at Hillary [Clinton]. Would I be an endorsement or would I be a liability? ‘Look, snakes of a feather flock together. Look, the two lying women. The two nasty women.’ Literally millions of people were telling me to disappear. So I disappeared. In many senses.”
Swift Talks About This Feud A Lot, Huh?
Yup. She also spoke to Elle about Kim just this past March.
What Did She Say About Kim Then?
“In my experience, I’ve come to see that bullies want to be feared and taken seriously,” she stated plainly, not citing any names, but adding: “A few years ago, someone started an online hate campaign by calling me a snake on the internet. The fact that so many people jumped on board with it led me to feeling lower than I’ve ever felt in my life.”
That’s Some Serious Shade-Throwing
Taylor wasn’t done, either. “It would be nice if we could get an apology from people who bully us, but maybe all I’ll ever get is the satisfaction of knowing I could survive it, and thrive in spite of it,” Swift added in that interview.
Look What You Made Taylor Do
Swift also trashed Kim as a “hateful troll” when talking to Elle this spring.
As for Kim?
Karadshian hasn’t talked much about Swift of late, opening up about the drama in January during an interview with Andy Cohen and saying she was “over it” and that everyone has “moved on.”
Have They Moved On, Though?
It doesn’t appear that way, does it?
