Taylor Swift Got A Whole Ass Song Dissing Kanye West

Eventually, they officially reconciled at the 2015 VMAs, when Taylor presented 'Ye with his Video Vanguard Award and Kanye sent her flowers after the fact, which Swift shared on Instagram.

"Rocking the coolest dark plaid pants and button-adorned heels, Swift first sat toward the front of the fishbowl, pointing out that she was basically on the set of her ".Ready for It?" music video, ready to break through the glass. Of course in the time between albums, Swift has also gained infamy for being petty as fuck.

After a year of lying low, Taylor Swift finally dropped her much-anticipated new album Reputation.

She references the calls again in 'This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things'. The kicker is her explicit reference to the speakerphone call during which Kim recorded her, as Swift continues, "And therein lies the issue/Friends don't try to trick you/Get you on the phone and mind-twist you/And so I took an ax to a mended fence".

"It was so nice throwing big parties / Jump into the pool from the balcony", Swift begins, remembering "feeling so Gatsby for that whole year" before she gets to the chorus, singing with a smirk in her voice, "This is why we can't have nice things, darling / Because you break them".

This dreamy ballad is mostly about Swift's boyfriend Joe Alwyn staying by her side and ignoring all the drama, but there may still be a few sly references to the Kanye feud.

Then, it's West's turn. Even more quickly than the masses latched onto the pop perfection of 2014's 1989 (like, in addition to the masses of tweens and country fans that launched the singer's career by picking up millions of her first four albums), they've hopped off the bandwagon.

Taylor replied, "You pausing it at 13 seconds is one of the reasons we're in this friendship for LIFE". "But I'm not the only friend you've lost lately / If only you weren't so shady".

This Is Why We Can't Have Nice Things may be an enjoyable slice of pettiness, but the album's crown jewel of gossip is Getaway Car, which sees Swift in full storyteller mode as she chronicles using one doomed relationship to escape another. "And here's to you, 'cause forgiveness is a nice thing to do", she says, before breaking down in giggles, saying, "I can't even say it with a straight face!"
