The Taylor Swift And Kim Kardashian Feud Is The Gift That Keeps On Giving

It’s like a really bad game of passive aggressive ping pong.

Just when we thought the war between Swift and Kardashian was finally starting to simmer down, Taylor goes and ups the ante with an attempted sly dig that even the most hopeless detective could have deciphered.

During a recent visit to Arizona for her world tour, Swifty told fans that she hit a personal low point a few years ago after being bullied online.

While Swift didn’t mention the name of the person who bullied her, it was obvious she was talking about none other than Kim Kardashian.

“A couple of years ago, someone called me a snake on social media, and it caught on. And then a lot of people called me a lot of names on social media. And I went through some really low times for a while because of it. I went through some times when I didn’t know if I was gonna get to do this anymore and I guess the snakes… I wanted to send a message to you guys that it someone uses name-calling to bully you on social media and even if a lot of people jump on board with it, that doesn’t have to beat you. It can strengthen you instead.”

 

Doesn’t take a genius to know that Swift was referencing her notorious (and ongoing) issues with the Kardashian-West clan, which peaked in 2016 after Kim released secretly filmed footage of Swift and West talking about referencing the pop princess in his song, “Famous”.

Happier times… well, kind of. If you’re Taylor.

To dig in extra hard, Kardashian released the footage on National Snake Day after Swift publicly tried to take West down for all his claims (including the ones about making her famous and calling her “bitch”).

It was a whole thing.

But Taylor has found a way to make the snake work for her and to win against the online trolls.

The most important question remains however… Will Kardashian retaliate? Or has she technically “won” the battle because Swift has admitted to being hurt and upset by Kardashian’s tweets?

Keep in mind, neither superstar has actually called out the other one directly, so maybe this is all heading for some ultimate showdown where they finally come at each other properly and just get it over and done with.

Here’s hopin’.

There’s Only One Thing That Could Make The Real Estate Industry Even Worse At This Point And That’s Kanye West

“I’m going to be one of the biggest real-estate developers of all time.”

We can all officially stop complaining about the Australian property market because it’s nothing compared to what’s heading for California (and maybe even the world) if Kanye West follows through on his plan to change the way we live by creating the spaces in which we live…

Yes, Yeezy has decided he wants to get into development.

He’s officially on a Kanye quest to create a Kanye nest for all of us.

During his two-hour interview with Charlamagne tha God, West explained his desire to build his first of five properties on an all-new 300 acres of unspoiled land in Calabasas, California.

It’s not like half of Calabasas and Hidden Hills isn’t already owned by the Kardashians, but if Yeezy wants to make his mark on a block of land or two, who are we to stop him?

“I’m going to build five properties. It’s my first community, I’m getting into development. We’re standing on my first property. I’m going to be one of the biggest real-estate developers of all time, what Howard Hughes was to aircrafts and what Henry Ford was to cars, just the relationships I have with architects, my understanding of space and sacred proportions, just this new vibe, this new energy. We gonna develop cities.”

 

West has since put the call-out to his fans for possible collaborators.

Hmm, yes, because who doesn’t want a bunch of strangers from all over the globe working together on a project they know literally nothing about beyond the fact that it’s one of West’s many recent ideas…

Whether this is a money-fuelled concept, an expression of art, or a slow decent from rapper to wacky-commune-cult leader (residents can all live in Yeezy-ville wearing Yeezy-ware), there is something legitimately terrifying about the idea of a Kanye created community.

Every Kanye West fan on the Internet right now.

Could this be West’s first foray into creating some kind of utopian lifestyle?

Is this an extension of his brand?

Or is this just some whacked-out idea from the guy who believes slavery was a choice?

In light of his new plans, Kanye’s general lack of focus is also somewhat troubling. He seems to jump from one idea to the next, never taking pause to actually follow through and concentrate on the ideas at hand.

One minute he’s talking about a Yeezy home brand, the next he’s teasing fans with pictures of the upgraded V2 edition of the YEEZY 700 sneaks.

So which one is it? Property or footware?

For those who want to buy into the Yeezy brand, and are happy to be sold another product masquerading as an actual lifestyle, this all might seem exciting – but if West really wanted to impact communities and change the way we live, wouldn’t he be better off focusing on building homes for those in lower-socioeconomic regions that really could use his help (or the help of any developer for that matter).

Who exactly is going to live in these communities and cities?

Will they be catered for those on a low-medium income? Or will they be designed just like West’s humble abode, which he designed with the help of his personal interior designer, Axel Vervoordt.

Inviting, no?

Also, let’s not be silly and forget the financial side of things.

Where is Kanye West getting all this money from?

It was only two years ago that Yeezy took to Twitter to divulge his $53 million debt.

Has that been resolved?

Whether Kanye actually follows through on his promise to build these new “cities” will remain to be seen, but in the meantime, here are just some of the qualities and skills he’ll probably need if he wants this new venture to succeed.

He’ll need to be: patient, focused, committed, and have a pretty good working knowledge of construction, contracts, development approvals, sustainability, project management, building codes, city regulations (it’s California after all and all homes need to be earthquake-proof), occupiers rights, tenancy rights, council information, real estate… OK you get the point.

Kanye has always made a big song and dance about his desire to continuously be learning…

Be careful what you wish for Yeezy.

Emma González Threw Shade At Kanye West On Twitter, Continues To Be Everyone’s Hero

Yeezy gave the student activist a shout-out on Twitter and she couldn’t be less impressed. Good for her.

Hands up who doesn’t want to be associated with one of Kanye’s very public and problematic Twitter rants?

Queue all of us.

It’s no secret that Kanye West’s Twitter account has been reactivated. He’s already got more than 20 million followers.

Since he’s logged back on, his posts have been a never-ending WTF stream of consciousness that reflects a very intense individual with a flare for the controversial and dramatic.

Are we really surprised? Well, kind of, yeah. West has gone next level.

From his pro-Trump posts to the downright amusing and bizarre, we’ve all been left to wonder what’s actually going on with Yeezy….

 

Is he unwell? Is he shit-stirring? Is he playing both sides so he can come off as the voice of reason? Is this all about enacting the first amendment?

I’m sure all will be revealed in time. As if Kanye doesn’t have a strategy.

But for now, West has turned his attention to Parkland school shooting survivor and activist, Emma González, referring to her as his “hero”.

Unsurprisingly, González wasn’t too happy about being associated with West and hit back at the rapper by posting her own hero-inspired tweet on her account.

Emma wasn’t the only one unimpressed with West’s original post. Most of his followers had a thing or two to say about it as well…

But the only opinion that matters here is Emma’s.

Instead of responding to West directly, she simply (and effectively) took the high road by posting a photo of her own hero – James Shaw Jr, who made international headlines last month after disarming the Waffle House shooter Nashville.

Four people died in the incident, and since then, James has raised enough money to pay for the funerals of each victim.

Kanye’s support of Trump completely opposes his claim that he’s inspired by González, making all of this just seem so disingenuous it almost borders on flat-out boring.

We’re all pretty over West’s rants, not to mention the extra dose of crazy coming from his newly found pro-Trump followers.

Well-done to Emma for not feeling obliged to thank or acknowledge West simply because he’s a celebrity that paid her a “compliment”.

It’s about time we all stop making excuses or consolations for individuals like Kanye, no matter how famous they are.
