Kim K exposes Taylor Swift: Part 1- The History

Kim K exposes Taylor in a series of snapchats and here is the part 1 of three part article explaining all the feud.

Oh my God this story gets bigger and bigger every day. This first part explains in brief all the event leading up to the feud.

History:

All of this started in 2009 during MTV VMA’s where Taylor won the Best Female Video “You Belong with Me”, when Kanye pulled a Kanye and jumped on to the stage and said the now infamous line “Imma let you finish…” and proclaimed that Beyoncé should have won the award for her “Single Ladies” video. Everybody including President Obama bashed Kanye for his actions.

Well to give credit to Kanye he did apologize but only to almost rescind it later saying he only did it because of the peer pressure and even added that he stands by his words, Taylor did not deserve to win the award and why should he defend her when she is still playing the victim. (And even released a passive aggressive song about him.)

This was even corroborated by his then girlfriend Amber Rose who said that Kanye was very remorseful of what he did. Also adding that he received a lot of hatred and people even refused to work with him unless he apologized to Taylor.

After nearly six years of back and forth, filled with awkward red carpet interactions and lot of speculations, the pair hugged it out at the Grammy awards in 2015. Apparently, Jay-Z was the motivation behind the pair resolving their issues. In September 2015, the pair shared a stage during MTV VMA’s where Taylor presented Kanye with the Vanguard Award. Taylor even told the crowd that Kanye’s first album “The College Dropout” was the first album she bought online as a teenager and Kanye announced in his speech that he will run for President in 2020.

A few days later Taylor posted a picture of flowers that Kanye sent her as a thank you with the hash tags #KanTay2020 and #bffs, declaring Tay as his running mate for 2020 elections. All was right in the world. Taylor even gushed about how sweet Kim was and how much she adored Kim, in an interview. After all this there were even talks of a collaboration between the two artists. Everybody was waiting with bated breaths as to what these two musical geniuses might produce.

But this friendship didn’t last long, in February of 2016, Kanye West has a huge fashion show/ listening party where played the song “Famous” from his new album called The Life of Pablo. The song contained the lyrics “For all my southside n****s that know me best/ I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ Why? I made that bitch famous.” The shocks on people’s faces when they heard the lyrics were quite evident. But later reports were released from Kanye’s camp that, Taylor knew about the song and had approved of the lyrics. But, Taylor’s camp was swift to decline any such thing and told that Taylor was distraught over the lyrics. They even alleged that Taylor actually cautioned him over releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message. Again Kanye got a lot of hatred sent to his side, even some people from Taylor’s squad chimed in against Kanye and her brother, Austin, made a statement by throwing his Yeezy’s in the bin! (Those are not only expensive but also hard to get a hold of, so Yikes!!).

Getting a head start on some spring cleaning. Here we go again.

Though Swift’s camp was issuing these statements, Swift herself kept radio silence until a few days late at the Grammy’s. Taylor Swift became the first woman to win the Album of the Year award twice in a row. During her acceptance speech, Taylor indirectly took a dig at Kanye saying “I want to say to the young woman out there, there are going to be people along the way who try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame. But if you just focus on the work and you don’t let those people sidetrack you, someday when you get where you’re going, you will look around and you will know it was you and the people who love you who put you there, and that will be the greatest feeling in the world”. Everyone hailed Taylor for taking a positive stance in a sticky situation and we all thought that was the end of it.

Yeah…. It wasn’t. Even Kimye’s friend Chrissy Teigen when asked if she thought the feud was over said, it wasn’t. She quotes “I’ll tell you, it’s not over. This is going to go on. This is being waged.”

In June 2016, Kim Kardashian-West gave an interview to GQ magazine where she claimed Taylor knew everything. She further said lyrics were “totally approved”. “She wanted to act like she didn’t. I swear my husband gets so much s**t for things when he really was doing proper protocol and even called to get it approved.” She even claimed to have evidence of the phone call where Taylor approved of the song. Everybody thought Kim was bluffing since all she did was talk about having a proof and given the very public life of the reality star no proof was given out. Even Taylor camp put out a word saying, “Kanye West never told Taylor he was going to use the term ‘that bitch’ in referencing her. A song cannot be approved if it was never heard […] Taylor cannot understand why Kanye West, and now Kim Kardashian, will not just leave her alone.”
