Taylor Swift seems to address Kim Kardashian feud: I felt ‘lower than I've ever felt in my life’

Taylor Swift is calling out Kim Kardashian West.

The 29-year-old singer covers the April issue of Elle, and discusses everything from politics to learning to cook in a self-written list of the lessons she’s learned. In one of Swift’s lessons, she says that she “learned that disarming someone’s petty bullying can be as simple as learning to laugh.”

She goes on to describe how someone calling her a “snake” on social media led her “to feeling lower than I’ve ever felt in my life.” That statement likely refers to her long-running feud with Kardashian West and Kanye West, which started when Swift came out against “Famous,” a West song that claimed that the rapper made “that b—h famous,” in 2016.

The feud escalated, with Kardashian West releasing a secretly recorded phone conversation between Swift and West, where the “Bad Blood” singer seems to approve the lyric. After releasing the audio recording, Kardashian West took to Twitter to celebrate National Snake Day.

“Wait it’s legit National Snake Day?!?!?They have holidays for everybody, I mean everything these days! [series of snake emoji symbols],” she wrote.

Swift ended up reclaiming the snake symbol, with her fans tweeting it out in support and even incorporating it into her recent “Reputation Tour” set.

“In my experience, I’ve come to see that bullies want to be feared and taken seriously,” she writes in Elle. “A few years ago, someone started an online hate campaign by calling me a snake on the internet.”

“The fact that so many people jumped on board with it led me to feeling lower than I’ve ever felt in my life, but I can’t tell you how hard I had to keep from laughing every time my 63-foot inflatable cobra named Karyn appeared onstage in front of 60,000 screaming fans,” she continues. “It’s the Stadium Tour equivalent of responding to a troll’s hateful Instagram comment with ‘lol.'”

“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,” she adds.

Her fans, Swift says, got her through both the feud and her tour.

“The fans and their care for me, my well-being, and my music were the ones who pulled me through,” she says. “The most emotional part of the “Reputation Stadium Tour” for me was knowing I was looking out at the faces of the people who helped me get back up. I’ll never forget the ones who stuck around.”

Swift also adds that she was raised “to be a polite young lady,” but has had to learn how to stand up for herself and be “like a snake” when necessary.

“Grow a backbone, trust your gut, and know when to strike back,” she writes. “Be like a snake — only bite if someone steps on you.”

Swift also spoke more about the effects of social media in general, apart from the Kardashian West snake incident.

“Social media can be great, but it can also inundate your brain with images of what you aren’t, how you’re failing, or who is in a cooler locale than you at any given moment,” she writes. “One thing I do to lessen this weird insecurity laser beam is to turn off comments… That way, I’m showing my friends and fans updates on my life, but I’m training my brain to not need the validation of someone telling me I look. I’m also blocking out anyone who might feel the need to tell me to ‘go die in a hole ho’ while I’m having my coffee at nine in the morning.”

“For too long, the projected opinions of strangers affected how I viewed my relationships,” she continues. “Whether it was the general internet consensus of who would be right for me, or what they thought was ‘couples goals’ based on a picture I posted on Instagram. That stuff isn’t real. For an approval seeker like me, it was an important lesson for me to learn to have my OWN value system of what I actually want.”

Though she’s learned how to stand up for herself in recent years, Swift isn’t blind to the need to apologize when she’s wrong.

“Even if it was unintentional, it’s so easy to just apologize and move on,” she advises. “Try not to say ‘I’m sorry, but…’ and make excuses for yourself. Learn how to make a sincere apology, and you can avoid breaking down the trust in your friendships and relationships.”

“Chances are you’re not trying to hurt the person you love and they aren’t trying to hurt you. If you can wind the tension of an argument down to a conversation about where the other person is coming from, there’s a greater chance you can remove the shame of losing a fight for one of you and the ego boost of the one who “won” the fight… They don’t give out awards for winning the most fights in your relationship. They just give out divorce papers.”

On the eve of her 30th birthday in December, Swift has taken the milestone to reflect on her past feuds and future wants, admitting that she has learned what’s important in life and what’s not.

“Both of my parents have had cancer, and my mom is now fighting her battle with it again. It’s taught me that there are real problems and then there’s everything else,” she says. “My mom’s cancer is a real problem. I used to be so anxious about daily ups and downs. I give all of my worry, stress, and prayers to real problems now.”

“I’ve come to a realization that I need to be able to forgive myself for making the wrong choice, trusting the wrong person, or figuratively falling on my face in front of everyone,” she adds. “Step into the daylight and let it go.”

Allison Mack is in 'active plea negotiations' to avoid trial for alleged involvement in NXIVM sex cult

“Smallville” actress Allison Mack along with two other defendants swept up in the alleged sex trafficking conspiracy by the self-help group, that many call a cult, NXIVM may avoid their respective trials next month thanks to a plea deal.

It was revealed in court that Mack and the others are in “active plea negotiations” as a fourth defendant, NXIVM co-founder and alleged ringleader of the cult, Keith Raniere, appeared in court to plead not guilty to child pornography charges related to the case.

Mack is best known for her long-running role on the superhero TV show about the early days of Clark Kent’s life. However, it was previously reported that she was heavily involved in the NXIVM organization. Mack allegedly got involved with the organization when she was unhappy with her acting career. She reportedly rose in the ranks to become a key player in its activities, which allegedly included branding its members and finding sex slaves for Raniere.

Mack is currently on pretrial house arrest at her parent’s home in Los Alamitos, Calif., on a $5 million bond. However, next month she’s expected to travel to New York to stand trial, unless she’s able to make a plea deal.

Additionally, defense attorney Mark Geragos said that his client, Seagram liquor fortune heiress Clare Bronfman, will be asking for a separate trial on charges she bank-rolled the Albany-based group that has been compared to a cult. Bronfman and Mack have previously denied the charges.

“We don’t need to be the collateral damage,” Geragos said.

‘The View’ host Meghan McCain says her late father would laugh that Trump is ‘so jealous of him’

“The View” co-host Meghan McCain thinks her late father would be amused that President Trump keeps him in the news with on-going attacks via Twitter.

Trump has repeatedly tweeted about John McCain – who died in Aug. 2018 – in recent days, falsely claiming the iconic senator graduated “last in his class” at Annapolis and slamming his role in the Russia investigation.

The president also responded recently to reports McCain and an associate had shared with the FBI and various media outlets the unverified dossier alleging that Moscow held compromising information on Trump – but the outspoken ABC News host thinks her dad would laugh it off.

“If I had told my dad, ‘Seven months after you’re dead, you’re going to be dominating the news and all over Twitter,’” Meghan McCain said on Wednesday. “He would think it was so hilarious that our president was so jealous of him that he was dominating the news cycle in death.”

“He would think it was so hilarious that our president was so jealous of him that he was dominating the news cycle in death.”

“The View” co-host then advised viewers not to feel bad for her family despite the president mocking her father on a regular basis.

“We are blessed. We are a family of privilege,” she said. “Feel bad for people out there who are being bullied that don’t have support.”

Meghan also thanked her “View” colleagues for the on-going support when it comes to defending her father. Co-host Joy Behar slammed Sen. Lindsey Graham on Monday for aligning with President Trump over his old friend, saying the Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman needs to “find his testicularity.”

Earlier this week, the same topic came up on “The View” and Meghan bashed the president for the Twitter attack on her father.

“He spends his weekend obsessing over great men because he knows it and I know it and all of you know it — he will never be a great man,” she said.

Meghan closed out the rebuke by adding: “I genuinely feel bad for his family. I can’t imagine having a father that does this on the weekends.”
