Kim Kardashian is opening up more about her feud with Taylor Swift. She insists that there was “no shade” thrown when she exposed the singer on Snapchat back in June. It all started earlier on this summer when Kim Kardashian exposed the singer-songwriter by releasing the clips of her private phone conversation with Kanye West.
Now that the 35-year-old is gracing the cover of Wonderland magazine, she has more to say about their ongoing feud. Kardashian told the publication in its latest issue that she did not intend to throw any shade at Swift, as reported via E! Online.
“I never publicly talk bad about people. I still don’t feel like I have. I’m being honest. I’m a fan. I like her music. There was no shade.”
In that same interview, Kim Kardashian also revealed that Taylor Swift’s squad went after her after she took to Snapchat.
“Girls in her squad hit me up on text,” Kim said. But, when she was asked who texted her, she responded, “I’m not petty.”
Early on in the summer, Kim Kardashian supported her husband by Snapchatting the video recordings of a phone call between Swift and West, in which the pop star seemed to have approved the rapper’s controversial “Famous” lyrics.
She loved it when he recited the words, “For all my Southside n***** that know me best/ I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex.”
Swift can be heard saying, “It’s like a compliment.” Then, her rep told People that Swift was not clear of the full lyrics, which include the line, “I made that b**** famous.” Even Swift took to Instagram to argue that she never approved that specific line. She also accused the couple of “character assassination” in her lengthy post.
Meanwhile, Kardashian has said that she only “claps back” when she feels “like someone is being fake.” Last month, Kardashian took to her website and app to post a video with her friend, Jonathan Cheban, in which the two talk about the art of clapping back, reports People.
“When I feel like someone is being fake is the time that I’ll say something, and it’s usually really publicly. My tip on clapping back is just do whatever makes you feel good. Like if you feel like talking s*** to someone, go for it.”
But, Kardashian admitted that she often takes “the high road most of the time.”
“I just don’t care. So I always think: Will I be affected by it in a week? Will I be affected by it in a month, in a year? An usually the answer is no.”
In addition, a source told People that Kardashian “was tired of Taylor being portrayed as this angel – she’s fake,” which is one of the reasons why she decided to expose the pop star.
“Kim is super loyal to Kanye and will always do anything to have his back. She is even more protective of him than she is of herself. She thinks he’s misunderstood and couldn’t stand that people thought he was a liar.”
In that same Wonderland interview, Kardashian opened up about the early stages of her relationship with West, saying that he was not used to all of the attention they received for their relationship.
“While he was recording [2013 album] Yeezus, I was so pregnant and miserable. He had this aggression. You can hear it. He wasn’t used to this life with me. He was super famous before, but the paparazzi life is a different world.”
The rest of Kim Kardashian’s interview with Wonderland officially hits newsstands this Friday, Sept. 23, in the U.K., and the first week of October in the U.S.
