The feud

For the unversed, it all began when Kim's ex-husband Kanye West interrupted Taylor's acceptance speech on stage at the 2009 VMAs saying that she didn't deserve her award for best female video. Later, in his 2016 song Famous Kanye rapped, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that b*tch famous." Taylor objected to the song and called it misogynistic. But in an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians that year, Kim defended Kanye. She even posted video clips of a phone call conversation between Kanye and Taylor to show that Taylor had given permission to release the song. After that, another leaked video emerged of Kim and Kanye talked to Taylor over phone and not giving her full details of what is to be in the song. Taylor dropped her album Reputation in 2017, with multiple songs referencing the episode.

Meanwhile, fans have been reacting to the new album, containing 31 songs, which has references to many other celebrities and artists- including Charlie Puth, Matty Healy, Joe Alwyn, Clara Bow, Stevie Nicks, and Patti Smith.
