It’s Taylor Swift v. Kim Kardashian on “thanK you aIMee”

Taylor Swift released the song “thanK you aIMee” off her new album, ‘The Tortured Poets Department’ and the strategic capitalization indicates it’s a direct hit at Kim Kardashian. Swift is wildly known for holding an eternal grudge, and since Hell hath no fury like Taylor Swift scorned, Swift has once again come for Kim in the form of a song. If only Kim Kardashian had taken her mother’s advice years ago…

In the video below you will see momager Kris Jenner advising her daughter, Kim Kardashian, to call Taylor Swift to make amends.

Kim did not take her mother/manager’s advice and instead went nuclear — by releasing what Kim considered to be cold hard “evidence” of Swift being caught red handed giving Kanye West permission to mention her in his song with the lyric, “I made that bit#h famous.” According to Kim, she was righting a wrong on behalf of her then husband. Kim claimed Swift gave Kanye permission for the lyric, later denied having done so, and then bashed Kanye at every turn. The only problem? Kim’s cold, hard evidence was only a snippet of a much larger, rambling conversation with Kanye in which he exhausted Swift into placating him so she could get off the phone. Swift asked for a preview of the Kanye song through a clear sigh, and when she finally hung up even I was confused at what just occurred.

According to Swift via her interview with Time for Person of the Year, “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. That took me down psychologically to a place I’ve never been before. I moved to a foreign country. I didn’t leave a rental house for a year. I was afraid to get on phone calls. I pushed away most people in my life because I didn’t trust anyone anymore. I went down really, really hard.”

Kim came very close to ruining Swift’s overall reputation as a result, and she never apologized. Pure talent is only reason Swift came back from the dead. As adept as Swift’s PR team is — even a magician can’t resurrect a dead body. Talent will always rise to the top. But Swift cannot and will not ever let this go, and as a grudge holder myself, I’m here for it. If there’s a lesson to be learned here, it is ALWAYS LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER.
