Taylor Swift has millions of supporters, but at one point in her career, she had just as many haters.
Continuing, she revealed that the "humiliating" experience caused her to have the realization that she needed to restructure her life "because it felt completely out of control". The reconciliation process famously came to a satisfying close when Perry made a cameo in Swift's "You Need to Calm Down" music video (yes, wearing a giant hamburger costume), and the two shared a heaping plate of "Peace at Last" cookies made by Swift herself. "[Trump] was going around saying, 'I'm a man of the people".
"The summer before that election, all people were saying was, 'She's calculated".
Swift had slammed West for his lyrics about her and was then accused of lying when the edited audio of the call seemed to show her approving an offensive line. These are the same exact insults people were hurling at Hillary. Having said that, Taylor questions whether her support of Hillary Clinton would do any good either, whether it would be an actual endorsement or a liability. 'Look, snakes of a feather flock together. As soon as I started playing stadiums-when I started to look like a woman-that wasn't as cool anymore. The move by the formerly apolitical singer incensed many on the right, including Donald Trump, who said he likes Swift's music "about 25 percent less now", and Mike Huckabee. "I made that bitch famous".
Why Taylor and Kim had a rift in 2016? Cue the thousands, millions, gazillions of snake emojis. Swift denied she approved the lyrics, leading Kardashian to release video of a conversation between Swift and West. Fans of Kardashian and West then led an online campaign to "cancel" Swift. She concluded that, "It would be nice if we could get an apology from people who bully us, but maybe all I'll ever get is the satisfaction of knowing I could survive it, and thrive in spite of it".
Taylor added that the constant talk of a feud between the musicians made it "impossible for you to not think that the other person has something against you". "It's a human being", she said.
In the interview with Vogue, Swift described it as a "mass public shaming".
