The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 38, subtweeted the “Fearless” songstress, 29, in 2016 and called her a snake, She also released video clips that include Kanye West discussing his song “Famous,” where Taylor is referred to as “that b***h.”
The pop star’s narrative changed dramatically at that moment, ushering in the edgy Reputation era, including a diss track about the famous couple. Taylor is Vogue’s September cover star, and opened up about the major feud.
The “Shake it Off” singer called the drama, “a mass public shaming." She said, "Millions of people saying you are quote-unquote canceled, is a very isolating experience. I don’t think there are that many people who can actually understand what it’s like to have millions of people hate you very loudly.”
She added, “When you say someone is canceled, it’s not a TV show. It’s a human being. You’re sending mass amounts of messaging to this person to either shut up, disappear, or it could also be perceived as, Kill yourself.”
Taylor confessed that she realized she needed to restructure her life at that point. “I knew immediately I needed to make music about it because I knew it was the only way I could survive it," she explained. "It was the only way I could preserve my mental health and also tell the story of what it’s like to go through something so humiliating.”
Since then, Taylor reworked her image, and is doing it again with the album Lover slated for release on August 23.
