Taylor Swift is having a bad week. Not only did the pop princess’ ex-boyfriend, Calvin Harris, slam her on Twitter as a mean girl, but she’s now engaged in one of the most epic celebrity feuds of all time with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
Taylor Swift is one celebrity who seems to pride herself on her squeaky-clean image. She’s branded as a good girl and is never seen out in public doing anything much that fans can slam her for. However, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are tired of everyone thinking Tay is a sweet little angel, and have seemingly made it their mission to take her down.
Kim and Kanye wanted to expose Taylor so badly that they risked legal action just to prove their point. On Sunday night, Kardashian released a series of Snapchat videos that prove Swift knew about West’s song, “Famous,” and the lyrics pertaining to her. This comes after months of Taylor speaking out about Kanye’s racy lyrics and his music video, which featured a fabricated image of Swift naked in bed with other celebrities.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have maintained that Kanye called Taylor ahead of time to tell her about the song, and that the singer was fine with it, but when Swift started speaking out, the couple took it upon themselves to expose her lie by releasing video of the conversation that the secretly recorded, which is said to be a crime in the state of California.
According to People Magazine sources, Kim Kardashian was fed up with Taylor Swift’s good girl act, and wanted to strip her of the image.
“[Kim] was tired of Taylor being portrayed as this angel. She’s fake. She said one thing when the song came out and now she’s saying another. She painted Kanye as this monster. He was actually trying to do the right thing for once when he called her.
“Kim is super loyal to Kanye and will always do anything to have his back. She is even more protective of him that she is of herself. She thinks he’s misunderstood and couldn’t stand that people thought he was a liar.”
However, Taylor Swift says she never denied speaking to Kanye West on the telephone about the song. Swift revealed that her beef was that West called her “that b**ch” on the track, which was something he never told her he was going to do.
This feud has divided everyone. Fans of the stars are now taking sides, as well as other celebrities. It seems that everyone is Team Taylor or Team Kimye in the debate. Taylor’s fans are a loyal bunch, and will stand by the singer through thick and thin, believing her when she said she was wronged. Meanwhile, Kim and Kanye’s fans seem to be happy that the couple has exposed Taylor for being Hollywood’s mean girl who hides behind her angel image.
The feud has sparked so much talk that even Kim’s sister, Khloe Kardashian is being called out. After teen actress Chloe Grace Moretz spoke out about how stars should use their voices to speak on important issues instead of to tear each other down, Kardashian used a very explicit image, that she believe to be of Moretz, to fire back. This caused even more controversy about how the Kardashian family were allegedly bullying other stars. Khloe denied being a bully, saying that she was only protecting her family.
It looks like Taylor Swift might want to lay low for a little while. Perhaps she use this as ammunition for her next album as the dust settles around this very public and talked about feud. Whatever happens, fans are keeping a close eye out to see which star might fire the next shot.
