Taylor Swift's Fans Really Love This Snake Imagery
Dec 06 2017
Taylor Swift and Kim Kardashian are back at it. You'll probably recall that this is one of the most controversial MVs of all time, because it featured nude wax figures of various celebrities such as Donald Trump, Caitlyn Jenner, Rihanna, Chris Brown, and yes, Taylor Swift, in bed with Kanye and Kim. The singer's fan army took it to the next level by referencing her leather-clad snake queen vibe for her "Look What You Made Me Do" visual, stating that if T-Swift is a snake, then Kim K is a rat- and snakes eat rats. Later that month, Kim released video footage of a phone call that took place between Kanye and Taylor while Kanye was in the studio, proving that Taylor was aware of the song.
On Monday, Kim posted a photo of herself taking a pic at Kanye's"Famous" exhibit - you know, the one that includes a likeness of Taylor's naked body. Even though Kim and Kanye weren't dating at the time, Kim played a big role in easing the relationship between Taylor and Kanye afterward, and Kimye were photographed hanging out with Taylor at multiple award shows between 2012-2016. "I made that bitch famous" line from the video's accompanying single sent the Swift army into a blonde-haired, chapstick-wearing frenzy. The footage did not address the "b--h" line.
Swift had previously denied giving West her blessing to use the racy lyrics.
After saying she wished to be "excluded from this narrative", she struck back at both of them on her new album, "Reputation," with "LWYMMD" and "This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things". The backlash carried over to the comments on additional posts on her page. Though the calls confirmed they spoke about the lyrics, there's never any mention of him referring to her as a "bitch".
