Taylor Swift on what it's like to be 'canceled'

Taylor Swift on what it's like to be 'canceled'

But the narrative changed dramatically in July 2016, when Kim Kardashian West called her a "snake" on Twitter, and thus the "Cancel Taylor Swift" hashtags, and campaigns began.

With about two weeks to go until Taylor Swift's next album, Lover, hits shelves, the pop star is at the top of her game.

Having been on the receiving end of cancel culture, the "You Need To Calm Down" songstress wants people to know that there are actual repercussions behind their snake tweets.

Swift traces her recent outspokenness to a few years back, when she says she was in the vehicle with her friend Todrick Hall, who asked her what she would do if her son was gay. "You're sending mass amounts of messaging to this person to either shut up, disappear, or it could also be perceived as, Kill yourself", she said.

Swift has come a long way from the snake ideology and the feeling that she needs to hide as she prepares to release her new album, "Lover," on August 23.

Swift concludes with, "We're not going to go straight to gratitude with it". Would I be an endorsement or would I be a liability? "He was going around saying, I'm a man of the people".

Swift, who appears on the cover of the style bible's influential September issue, said she realised she "needed to restructure my life because it felt completely out of control". When I make a mistake, it echoes through the canyons of the world. She goes on to say that another factor was that amid her feud with Kim Kardashian West, she was being attacked as "calculated", "manipulative", and a "liar", as was Clinton.

Taylor says that President Trump "weaponised" celebrity endorsements.

'We decided the metaphor for what happens in the media is they pick two people and it's like they're pouring gasoline all over the floor, ' Taylor told the magazine. I was a lanky, scrawny, overexcited young girl who reminded them more of their little niece or their daughter than a successful woman in business or a colleague.

Perry wrote back in an "emotional" note, asking Swift if the pair could spend some one-on-one time together. Without ever actually being in the same room as Miss Wintour, Taylor asked all our most pressing questions like "What is the most insulting adjective you could use to describe someone?" and "How did you feel when I copied your hairstyle at the 2016 Grammys?".
