Kanye West and Taylor Swift’s History

While Kim and Taylor did not directly come at odds with one another until 2016, the feud can be traced back to 2009 when Kim’s ex-husband, Ye formerly known as Kanye West, interrupted Taylor’s MTV Video Music Awards acceptance speech.

Taylor, who was 19 at the time, had barely begun to express her gratitude for receiving the Best Female Video award when 32-year-old Ye rushed to the stage to say, “I’m really happy for you; I’m going to let you finish. But Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time.”

Ye is said to have taken another jab at Taylor Swift in 2016 when he released his song “Famous”. The song, from his “Life of Pablo” album included the lyrics: “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that bitch famous.”

In her Grammy speech in 2016, Taylor Swift responded to Ye’s song. Accepting the award for Album of the Year, the “Blank Space” singer addressed young women, saying, “There are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame,” allegedly referring to Ye.

She also released the song “Look What You Made Me Do,” as a part of her reputation album which includes the lyrics, “I got a list of names, and yours is in red, underlined” which has been rumoured to be targeting the famous couple.

During an interview with Time magazine after being named Person of the Year in 2023, Taylor Swift publicly addressed the feud for the final time, stating: “You have a fully manufactured frame job, in an illegally recorded phone call, which Kim Kardashian edited and then put out to say to everyone that I was a liar.”

Taylor Swift’s Lyrics

In the track “thanK you aIMee”, Taylor sings “All that time you were throwin’ punches, I was buildin’ somethin’ ”, also adding in the song “I built a legacy which you can’t undo”.
