It seems Taylor Swift has some Bad Blood ...
Having recently being crowned TIME Magazine's Person of the Year, you think she'd been on top of the world, but instead she's facing backlash for comments she made about Kim Kardashian.
In her interview celebrating the win, Taylor made some allegations against Kim which some fans haven't taken kindly too.
Taylor, 33, slammed Kim, 43, for 'taking her down psychologically' and 'forcing her into hiding' for a year.
She's claimed it felt like 'a career death', saying: "Make no mistake — my career was taken away from me."
The pair's feud dates was back to 2016, when Kim's then hubby Kanye West included Taylor's name in a diss track.
Taylor hit out against the lyrics, but then Kim got involved, sharing voice notes of Tay Tay appearing to agree to her name being used in Kanye's song.
Swift swiped back, accusing Kardashian of editing the footage and taking the conversation out of context.
Kardashian, for her part, said in a Twitter thread at the time: "I never edited the footage - I only posted a few clips to Snapchat to make my point and the full video that recently leaked doesn't change my narrative."
Since then, the pair had supposedly mended things, and were on good terms.
Until this week, that is ...
Taylor went on: "You have a fully manufactured frame job, in an illegally recorded phone call, which Kim Kardashian edited and then put out to say to everyone that I was a liar.
"That took me down psychologically to a place I've never been before. I moved to a foreign country. I didn't leave a rental house for a year. I was afraid to get on phone calls."
She continued: "I pushed away most people in my life because I didn't trust anyone anymore. I went down really, really hard.
"I thought that moment of backlash was going to define me negatively for the rest of my life."
She concluded: "Nothing is permanent. So I'm very careful to be grateful every second that I get to be doing this at this level, because I've had it taken away from me before.
"There is one thing I've learned: My response to anything that happens, good or bad, is to keep making things. Keep making art.
"But I've also learned there's no point in actively trying to quote unquote defeat your enemies. Trash takes itself out every single time."
However, some fans are not too happy about Taylor's comments.
One wrote on X: "Taylor Swift playing the victim again saying 'make no mistake my career was ruined' after the Kim K phone call is so funny. She’s always playing the victim."
While another added: "Taylor Swift still talking about Kim Kardashian in 2023 is really something else…. embarrassing for her and her soul.
"Focus on your achievements and stay in your lane, sweetie. You could never reach her level, trust me."
As you'd expect though, for every negative comment there were dozens more from Swifties defending her shading of Kim.
One wrote: "Taylor Swift was not kidding when she said she’s got a list of names and yours is in red, underlined AND that she was going to check it once, then check it twice, Kim 'ILLEGALLY recorded phone call' Kardashian."
Another said: "Taylor Swift saying Kim Kardashian’s name with her full chest and blaming her for sabotaging her career… delicious… so glad I am a Swiftie."
It seems as though this is the drama that will never die.
