Swift Has Learned a Lot
“In my experience, I’ve come to see that bullies want to be feared and taken seriously,” she added, 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.”
Wow, That's Candid
And Swift wasn't done being brutally honest, 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."
To Be Clear...
... yes, Taylor just slammed Kardashian as a "bully."
Turning Pain Into Profit
During her Reputation Stadium Tour, while singing the song "Look What You Made Me Do," Swift often brough out a giant inflatable snake named Karyn to the stage.
What Was the Thought Process Here?
“I can’t tell you how hard I had to keep from laughing every time my 63-foot inflatable cobra named Karyn appeared onstage in front of 60,000 screaming fans,” Swift told Elle. “It’s the Stadium Tour equivalent of responding to a troll’s hateful Instagram comment with ‘lol.’”
What Else Did Swift Tell Elle?
Here's a good confession: “After my teen years and early twenties of sleeping in my makeup and occasionally using a Sharpie as eyeliner (DO NOT DO IT), I felt like I needed to start being nicer to my skin."
