Taylor Swift just released her latest album, Reputation, and one of the songs, “This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things,” she appears to throw shade at Kanye West. The longstanding on-again, off-again feud between the pair might just be fully reignited after this missive.
Starting by describing life before someone rained on her parade, Swift sings about how “it was so nice throwing big parties/jump into the pool from the balcony.” This is a reference to her heavily Instagrammed 4th of July party last year, America’s Hiddleswift moment, which was conspicuously not repeated this year. Less than a month after, Kim had released the Snapchat evidence that Swift had known about the line, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex” (she claims that she never knew about the “bitch” lyric). A million think-pieces on whether Taylor’s girl-power positivity outlook was all a show followed, thus the snakes.
