Kim Kardashian and Taylor Swift aren’t about to extend olive branches of peace anytime soon in their epic feud. Instead, both Kardashian and Swift continue to battle, with Kim just dropping a new bombshell by throwing shade at Taylor.
Having become skilled in the art of the “clap back,” the reality TV star unveiled the specifics on how to do so Kardashian-style. And in her discussion, Kim succeeded in dissing Swift, pointed out People.
Bombshell One: Kardashian’s Clap-Back Class Is In Session
Joined by her best friend Jonathan Cheban, Kim described what a “clap back” involves, as well as offering a definition.
“Clap back [means] to return fire, to return a diss.”
Kardashian shared that she particularly likes to clap back in public when she feels that someone (translated as Taylor) is acting fake. The comment about returning a diss in public refers to the way that Kim added fuel to Swift’s feud with her husband Kanye West by unveiling videos in which Taylor seemed to approve his “Famous” track lyrics.
“When I feel like someone is being fake is the time that I’ll say something, and it’s usually really publicly,” explained Kim.
An insider revealed to People that Kardashian feels Swift is falsely pictured as angelic.
“[Kim] was tired of Taylor being portrayed as this angel – she’s fake,” said the insider in describing the reality TV star’s reason for leaking the video.
“My tip on clapping back is just do whatever makes you feel good,” clarified Kardashian. “Like, if you feel like talking s— to someone, go for it.”
However, Kim insisted that she does usually try to take the “high road” rather than become involved in a feud.
“I always think: Will I be affected by this tomorrow? Will I be affected by it in a week? Will I be affected in a month, in a year? And usually the answer is no,” she added.
Bombshell Two: Swift And Kardashian Immersed In Popularity Contest
Adding more fuel to their feud, Kim and Taylor are battling over who will get the coveted cover of Vogue, according to Radar Online’s insider.
The battle has extended to involve Vogue’s editor, Anna Wintour, who faces a dilemma in choosing between Kardashian and Swift. Because she views Kanye’s “Famous” video as “tasteless,” she isn’t a fan of Kim and West anymore, explained the insider. However, the Vogue cover that starred the couple ranks high on the success list.
“[Anna] has gone cool on Kimye after his tasteless ‘Famous’ video, but she’s reluctant to close the door on the couple because their Vogue cover was one of their biggest-selling issues in history,” noted the source.
Adding her own opinions to the popularity contest, Wintour’s daughter, Katherine “Bee” Shaffer, believes that it’s Taylor who should receive the magazine’s cover, added the insider.
“[The mother and daughter] are struggling to decide on [whose] side to take [in the] ultimate popularity contest.”
Shaffer pointed out that Swift has a track record as a solid star on the much-desired Vogue cover.
“The race is on for Taylor and Kim to win favor with Anna and they’re neck and neck,” summed up the source.
Rather than make the difficult decision quickly, Wintour is choosing to wait it out. She wants to observe the next move in the epic battle between Kardashian and Swift prior to naming the next Vogue cover star. The insider noted that consequently, the magazine’s future cover story will reveal whether the mom and daughter are siding with Team Kim and Kanye or Team Taylor.
“We will see whose side Anna and Bee land on based on which of the two women they are willing to feature on the cover next,” declared the source.
