After a long time being silent over 2016 presidential elections. Taylor Swift finally opened up about her not endorsing Hillary Clinton back then.
The Presidential Election 2020 ahead
Just when the Presidential elections 2020 are not too far away. An unanswered question from last 2016’s elections lingered on the music star Taylor Swift. “Why hadn’t she endorsed Hillary Clinton like Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and others?” In a recent interview with Vogue, she finally answered the question by referencing her high voltage drama. With Kim Kardashian at that time. She accepted being felt lower than ever due to Kim’s snake emoji for her and launching a ‘hate campaign’ against her, because of accusing her lying about not approving Kyne West’s ‘Famous’ lyrics about her.
Why Taylor and Kim had a rift in 2016?
Kayne West released the song “Famous” which became the main reason behind Taylor and Kim’s rift due to a line as. “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bi** famous.” This strong misogynistic lyrics sparked rage among Taylor’s fans but West claimed that he had been given the permission to use it. Taylor’s publicist confirmed that Kayne called to release ‘Famous‘ on her Twitter account, not the permission for using such lines. In fact, Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyrics. Taylor faced too much criticism and Kim accused of her being a liar, hypocrite and which eventually caused a major rift between them.
Swift broke her political silence
Taylor said, “People were telling me to disappear, so I disappeared in my senses”. The nasty cold war she had been going through that time made her keep silent over the political matters particularly in order to avoid any further trouble. Last November she broke her political silence and persuaded people over Instagram to go to polls and bring a change.
Taylor Swift gave a rare endorsement
Last November, Taylor Swift wrote a long post over Instagram. In which she gave a rare endorsement for a Democratic nominee, Phil Bredesen, over Republican Marsha Blackburn in the Tennessee Senate race. Since then she hasn’t been reluctant in voicing out her opinions related to political matters in public.
