It Seems The Taylor Vs Kanye Beef Is Still Not Squashed
Please, let us rest.
There are just some feuds in pop culture that will never die: Liam Gallagher vs Noel Gallagher, Joan Crawford vs Bette Davis, Eminem vs everyone. Today, we're gathered here to discuss the feud between Taylor Swift and Kanye West. Again! Here we go.
By now, you're probably aware of the 10-year history between these two, from "I'ma let you finish" to the infamous Snapchat series in which Ye's wife Kim Kardashian "exposed" Taylor for allegedly approving the lyric "I made that b***h famous" in Ye's song "Famous" -- she said that she never knew he would refer to her as "that b***h" and said that the recordings were edited -- with many lesser incidents in between.
Today, we're here to talk about the video for "Famous", which featured a nude sculpture of Taylor Swift in bed with Ye, Kim, and a ton of other celebs ranging from George W. Bush to Anna Wintour, as well as Rihanna and Chris Brown.
The other day, Twitter user @sagittariussnake (same) tweeted the following thoughts on the music video, prompting Miss Swift herself to hit that MF like button:
“The famous music video was straight up revenge porn. not to mention putting abuse victims next to their abusers and celebrating sexual assaulters. it was disgusting and he doesn’t get enough crap for it."
The tweet was screengrabbed and soon made its way over to Instagram, where Taylor saw it and liked it, prompting more screengrabbing and re-posting.
In a recent essay for Elle magazine, Taylor wrote about the Snapchat scandal and how she moved past being branded a "snake" by Kim and millions of people.
“The fact that so many people jumped on board with it led me to feeling lower than I’ve ever felt in my life, but I can’t tell you how hard I had to keep from laughing every time my 63-foot inflatable cobra named Karyn appeared onstage in front of 60,000 screaming fans,” she said. "It’s the Stadium Tour equivalent of responding to a troll’s hateful Instagram comment with ‘lol.’”
“It would be nice if we could get an apology from people who bully us,” she added, “but maybe all I’ll ever get is the satisfaction of knowing I could survive it, and thrive in spite of it.”
