The most serious scandal thought to make Taylor Swift unable to recover. But after 4 years, she successfully proved that no one could break “Miss Americana” down.
On March 21st (local time), a scandalous phone conversation between Kanye West – Taylor Swift revolved around the song “Famous”, which was suddenly leaked online. Eventually, after 4 years, the truth was unraveled, those day she was assigned to the words “poisonous snake” was gone.
Immediately, the clip cut from the documentary “Miss Americana” was swiftly shared by Swifties (Taylor fandom) on social networking sites. This part will surely take away the tears of viewers because Taylor Swift appeared with a blank face, completely collapsed due to the massive attack from netizens. And at the same time, she was forced to hide for a year to calm down.
When everything is now exposed, let’s look back at 4 years Taylor might have lived in criticism, constantly being called “poisonous snakes”. They thought everything would engulf her career since the harsh summer of 2016. But the result seemed to be converted, Taylor always knows what to do and certainly no one has a chance to defeat her!
2016: Hashtag #TaylorSwiftIsOverParty trending all fronts, as well as the “poisonous snake” icon
After Kanye West released the “Famous” MV, Taylor Swift character appeared in an almost nude pose with shocking lyrics: “I made that b * tch famous” , Taylor Swift quickly objected to the content of the song.
However, at that time, Kim Kardashian shocked the entertainment industry by posting a series of videos on Snapchat to prove that Kanye West actually consulted Taylor through the obscene lyrics in “Famous”.
Immediately, the singer responded to Kim Kardashian’s video: “Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me ‘that b*tch’ in his song? It doesn’t exist because it never happened. You don’t get to control someone’s emotional response to being called ‘that b*tch’ in front of the entire world. Of course I wanted to like the song. I wanted to believe Kanye when he told me that I would love the song. I wanted us to have a friendly relationship. He promised to play the song for me, but he never did. While i wanted to be supported Kanye on the phone call, you can not “approve” a song you’ve never heard. Being falsely painted as a liar when I was never given the full story or played any part of the song is character assassination. I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative, one that I have never asked to be a part of, since 2009″.
And then what did Taylor get? Support? No, at that time, Taylor’s explanation accidentally turned her into a double-faced person in the public eye. Since then, the voice of “Blank Space” has faced a string of boycott days, many fans have turned their backs and the nickname “snake queen” has accompanied her with this cruel animal icon appears throughout the social networks. This can be considered a biggest “bullying on social networks” in Hollywood history.
Finally, Taylor decided to let go of everything, did not explain anything more and “disappeared” from the entertainment industry.
2017: Back proudly with “Reputation”, the best-selling album of the year with pictures of venomous snakes
In August 2017, Taylor unexpectedly released the MV “Look What You Made Me Do”, marking the amazing return when she decided to make a change in the poisonous snake image that people called her during the drama. The work is done not only in terms of image, artifices, but also contains many messages slanted enemies. And of course, Kanye West – Kim Kardashian is indispensable!
This first shot also officially opened the series of horrific swept days of the “Reputation” album, a most mysteriously scary return in Taylor’s career. The proof is that in just one week, “Reputation” has reached more than 1,216 million copies and became the best-selling album in 2017. Not only stopping there, “Reputation” was also praised by many critics. Rolling Stone magazine commented the album as follows: “A profound aspect of pop music, Taylor Swift had the greatest album of all time, she was trying something too new …”.
2018: “Reputation Stadium Tour” established a series of terrific achievements, reaching the highest revenue in the history of the United States
In 2018, “snake queen” decided to suspend the production of music and work hard on the tour. The journey of the “Reputation Stadium Tour” began in the US from May 8 to October 6, ended on November 21 in Japan and was always out of stock.

As such, Taylor also broke her own record of the highest-grossing tour in the US set by a female artist.
And yet, the “Reputation Stadium Tour” ended with 53 shows, helped Taylor bring in $ 345.7 million with the attendance of up to 3,000,000, pushing the total revenue to $ 935 million.

Among them, at the MTV Video Music Awards 2019, the star born in 1989 not only won the spotlight but also received 3 victories, including the most important award “Video of the year” for the MV “You Need To Calm Down”.

Coincidentally, 2019 is also the year marking a decade since Kanye West “unjustified” snatched the mic of Taylor right at the VMAs awards ceremony. At that time, when Taylor Swift was preparing to speak at the award for “Best Female Artist Video” for the MV “You Belong With Me”, Kanye West suddenly ran up the stage to snatch the mic, and let disrespectful words go to Taylor Swift.
