Taylor Swift is weaponizing the element of surprise. While most of us thought she was using it to surprise us, she could be turning it against an old heckler, Kanye West.
Swift just shocked the world by announcing the release of her latest album, “Folklore,” tomorrow. Conveniently, it’s the same release date as Kanye’s latest album, “Donda: With Child.”
This would be the year for revenge, as Swift has already shown us that she’s not afraid to use her claws.
It was 11 years ago when Kanye West declared war against Taylor Swift. That’s when he swiped the microphone from Swift at the VMAs and told the crowd that Beyoncé should be holding Swift’s award.
Taylor Swift clearly did not get over his antics. During her 2016 Grammy victory speech, Swift said:
There are going to be people who try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame.
Swift was responding to Kanye West’s infamous line in “Famous,” about Taylor, when he said, “I made that b*tch famous.”
That was four years ago. She was building her strength then. And we’ve seen it fully unleashed in 2020.
Despite the country singer likely having a large following of Republicans, Swift unleashed her fury at Donald Trump in May. The result? One of the biggest tweets of 2020.
She dug her talons into the president. Now it seems like she’s focusing her energies on another wanna-be president.
Kanye West has been acting maniacal lately, and many people believe it coincides with his latest album release.
He’s running for president. He’s crying at rallies. West even shared highly personal information about his wife Kim Kardashian and questioned Harriet Tubman’s legacy.
And his album drops tomorrow.
Whether or not he’s entirely to blame for his behavior, Kanye West will have to answer for it.
He’s done everything he can to bring attention to himself, and his highly anticipated album still may get overshadowed.
Taylor Swift has the internet abuzz. She has a bigger following than Kanye West. And she might be pissed off.
Set your alarms for midnight when these two albums drop and make your choice wisely.
