Taylor Swift was chosen the ‘Person of the Year’ by Time magazine, which described her as the “hero of her own story.” Taylor Swift’s “The Eras Tour” video made a big $92.8 million debut earlier this year, setting the tone for the “Cruel Summer” singer’s 2023. In an interview with the site, the singer revealed that Kim Kardashian’s phone chat with rapper Kanye West was “a career death” for her.
Kim Kardashian revealed audio and footage of her then-husband and Taylor Swift conversing on the phone in 2016, in which the pop singer appeared to condone the rapper’s comments about her in his song. “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / I made that b**** famous,” Mr West said in the song. A Swift spokesman denied claims that the artist approved of the song’s lyrics after it was published. In the video, there was no mention of West claiming he “made her famous” or that he would label Swift a “b****” if an unedited version of the discussion was made public in 2020.
The 33-Year-Old Singer Claimed That It Felt Like “Career Death”
The 33-year-old singer claimed that it felt like “career death” because she appeared to have authorized the lyrics. “Make no mistake—my career was taken away from me. 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,” she told the site.
The incident damaged her emotionally, and she even relocated to a new location to avoid all the attention. “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. I pushed away most people in my life because I didn’t trust anyone anymore. I went down really, really hard,” the “Lover” singer said to Time Magazine.
