Taylor Swift absolutely savaged Kim Kardashian during her show last night
As much as we might try to deny it, we all enjoy a little celebrity gossip every now and then.
Sure, it can become grating if we hear too much about one particular star, and, yes, nobody really cares that much when it concerns a Z-list has-been; BUT, when two world-renowned famous folks end up in a public feud, we all get at least a tiny bit invested in how the drama is going to go down.
So, ever since Kim Kardashian and Taylor Swift started feuding a few years back, we've all been waiting for one of them to publicly call out the other in a big way... and it finally happened.
But first, if you're not familiar with the age-old feud between T-Swizzle and the Kween of reality TV: buckle up, because you're about to get a quick history lesson.
The story starts way back in 2009, when Kanye famously interrupted the Look What You Made Me Do singer in order to say that Beyonce deserved the award that Swift had just received. Kimye weren't yet an item at that point, and, even after they were, the whole incident seemed to be water under the bridge for Kim and Tay Tay - but it wasn't as clear-cut as that.
Skip forward to 2016, when Kanye's Famous was released. It contained these lyrics: "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why, I made that b***h famous / Goddamn / I made that b***h famous," which, understandably, made Swift feel a little uncomfortable. Kanye claimed she knew about the lyrics before the song was produced, she denied it, and the whole feud blew wide open into a seemingly neverending he-said-she-said debate.
Swift later publicly hit back at Kanye in a speech, which prompted Kim to come to his defense - and this is where the reality star really got involved. Anyway, after a loooot more back-and-forth between Swift and Kimye, the KUWTK star tweeted this not-so-subtle shade about her long-time foe:
And now, nearly two years after that fateful day (and a load more incidents between the pair), the singer spoke about the incident while on stage at her Reputation tour;
"A couple of years ago, someone called me a snake on social media and it caught on. And then a lot of people called me a lot of names on social media," she said. "And I went through some really low times for a while because of it. I went through some times when I didn’t know if I was gonna get to do this anymore and I guess the snakes… I wanted to send a message to you guys that if someone uses name calling to bully you on social media and even if a lot of people jump on board with it, that doesn’t have to beat you. It can strengthen you instead."
In short: Swifty is still not over Kim's two-year-old tweet, so she decided to tell thousands of people about it. And, yes, she does some very good points about online bullying in the process - but she doesn't mention that she also gave her fair share of insults during the period she's talking about.
Now, I don't want to seem like I'm taking sides here... but that does seem like pretty shady behavior, don't you think?
