Kanye West and Taylor Swift fued reignites
The never-ending feud between Kanye West and Taylor Swift just took another turn, more like a U-turn.
It’s 2020 while the world fights against the global covid 19 pandemics Kim Kardashian and Taylor Swift are still fighting over the years old Kanye-Taylor feud, I mean much like Rob Kardashian’s line of socks they don’t quite give up that easy. Since it’s a never-ending Kanye-Taylor feud with a lot of “he said, she said” cases it’s my solemn duty to remind you how it all began, unless you already remember all of it, for that I’m sorry are you doing okay sweetheart?
It all started 11 years ago on 13 September 2009 at the VMA’s, YESSS in 2009?! With the iconic “Imma let you finish but…..” we all know the rest.
Next, a few days later Kanye appeared on the Jay Leno Show on the 15 Sept 2009 to apologize “It was rude, period. I don’t try to justify it, ’cause I was in the wrong. Dealing with the fact that I hurt someone or took anything away, you know, from a talented artist—or from anyone—because I only wanted to help people.”, meanwhile Taylor Swift also said “Kanye did call me and he was very sincere in his apology, and I accepted that apology” on ABC radio.
So it’s all sorted now, right? WRONG! Unfortunately, this was just the beginning.
Exactly a year later on 13 September 2010 Taylor Swift debuts her new song title “Innocent” at the VMA’s, the lyrics “Who you are is not what you did / You’re still an innocent” which made everyone think is Taylor swift throwing shade on Kanye West
On June 11, 2013, Kanye West backtracks his apology, made 4 years ago, during an interview with NewYork Times claiming he was pressured into apologizing…. umm okay?
February 8, 2015, are we still talking about a feud that started and ended in 2009? Yes. Taylor and Kanye were spotted backstage at The Grammy’s looking friendly.
Taylor Swift even gave an award to Kanye West at the VMA’s (ironic) on August 30, 2015.
All is well….psych, it’s Hollywood drama lovelies things don’t ease so easily.
Here’s when it all went downhill crazy, Kanye West released his new song “Famous” on 11 February 2016, and ironically it was quite famous. yes, this is the same song that had the lyrics “I feel like I and Taylor might still have s*x / I made that b*tch famous” and that is the same day Taylor’s brother Austin threw out his “Yeezy’s” on Instagram, yes we don’t want any drama here.
The very next day, 12 February 2016, Taylor released a statement saying she NEVER gave approval for the lyrics of Famous.
When Taylor received the award for Best Album Of The Year at the Grammy’s in 2016 she said:
February 23, 2016, a video of Kanye at a nightclub posted by TMZ where he said “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex,” “she said, ‘Oooh, Kanye, I like that line.’ Then she won her award and said something completely different. She ain’t cool no more. She had two seconds to be cool and she f*cked it up.”
On April 10, 2016, while performing “famous” on stage Kanye West says “If I get in trouble for saying the truth, what’s being said the rest of the time? And I had to fight every day of my life, with the whole world turned against me, for saying out loud what everyone else felt. But that’s the job of an artist, of a true artist: not to be controlled by their finances, not to be controlled by perceptions, but only to be controlled by their truth.”
Fast-forwarding to June of 2016, Kim Kardashian’s GQ cover story was released and she went on… “She totally approved that,” Kim says, shaking her head in annoyance. “She totally knew that that was coming out. She wanted to all of a sudden act like she didn’t. I swear, my husband gets so much shit for things [when] he really was doing proper protocol and even called to get it approved.” Kim is on a roll now, speaking faster and more animatedly than at any other point during our time together. “What rapper would call a girl that he was rapping a line about to get approval?”. On the other hand, Taylor’s spokesperson had to say this “Taylor does not hold anything against Kim Kardashian as she recognizes the pressure Kim must be under and that she is only repeating what she has been told by Kanye West.”
and the very next day this was on Kim’s twitter.
Then came the video of Famous… and precisely 17 days later on the 18 July 2016 Kim released footage on Snapchat where Taylor supposedly allowed Kanye to use those lyrics.

and instantly came Taylor’s statement, which engaged all of us into searching for the actual “statement”, to save you from the pain she said, “Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me ‘that bitch’ in his song?”
After a year in August 2017, I don’t get why Taylor releases a song “Look what you made me do. Which in every way possible threw shade at “KimYe”
Another long time later Taylor addressed to her “reputation Tour” crowd “A couple of years ago, someone called me a snake on social media and it caught on. Then a lot of people were calling me a lot of things on social media. And I went through some really low times for a while because of it. I went through some times when I didn’t know if I was going to get to do this anymore.” From there on it was only Taylor from liking tweets of people insulting Kanye, to sharing her diary entry about the incident or even opening up to Rolling Stones about her feud “I realized he is so two-faced. That he wants to be nice to me behind the scenes, but then he wants to look cool, get up in front of everyone and talk shit.”
We’re almost there catching up, on November 1st, 2019 fans notice Kim listening to Taylor Swift’s “Lover” at a shoot.
And now at last, on 21st March 2020, a video leaked that had the footage of the conversation between Kanye and Taylor

Today while Taylor Swift using the resurfaced feud to shed light on a charity, Kim Kardashian releases a series of tweets
I didn’t feel the need to comment a few days ago, and I’m actually really embarrassed and mortified to be doing it right now, but because she continues to speak on it, I feel I’m left without a choice but to respond because she is actually lying.
