Taylor Swift And Kanye West Feud Continues

Taylor Swift And Kanye West Feud Continues

Did Kanye really OK the whole line in "Famous" with Taylor?

So I'm sure as most of you know there has been this huge fight between Kanye West and Taylor Swift, but does she have a right to even be mad? Well before we even begin to talk about that, let's talk about how this whole thing began. In 2009 Taylor Swift and Beyonce were nominated for the same VMA and taylor won it, but Kanye west apparently felt so entitled that he hopped on stage to say that Beyonce deserved that award. thus creating the extreme tension that still exists between Kanye and her. Afterwords, she jokingly made a song about it maybe a year or less after the incident, and then at some point in 2015 it was claimed that they were on good terms and got a burger together. As far as I'm aware, there was a recent speech in the last year at an award show where she indirectly refers to Kanye when she says that people are going to try to take credit for all of your hard work. What she means is that Kanye West tried to say that he’s the reason she is famous which probably makes Taylor very mad, and rightfully so.

On top of all of this, he name drops her name in his new song "Famous" in such a vulgar manner. The big line is “ I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that bitch famous (God damn). I made that bitch famous." After fans of Taylor and Taylor herself had said this was disrespectful, rude, etc., Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian released Snapchat videos of him calling Taylor and discussing the line of the song. The thing that I noticed when I watched the videos, was that he did in fact tell her about a portion of that line which was “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex” but he never talked to her about referring to her as “that bitch” which is something I'm sure most women can agree is extremely rude and disrespectful. He also yet again says that he made her famous, but how can you belittle someone's success and give yourself all of the credit? I don't think that people like Taylor because of him. Her songs selling and getting radio play after a year of the album release isn't because Kanye made himself look like a fool on stage back in 2009, it's because she’s worked hard to make the best music she could.

On the other side, I can see that Kanye probably thought it was fine because Taylor said that he should write whatever sounds right. Because of the type of music he writes, he probably thought it was completely acceptable because in the rap industry they degrade women all the time without even batting an eye. I still think that Kanye should've read the entirety of the line to her, but that's just me.

To The Friends I Won't Talk To After High School

I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.


So, for the last four years I’ve seen you almost everyday. I’ve learned about your annoying little brother, your dogs and your crazy weekend stories. I’ve seen you rock the awful freshman year fashion, date, attend homecoming, study for AP tests, and get accepted into college.

Thank you for asking me about my day, filling me in on your boy drama and giving me the World History homework. Thank you for complimenting my outfits, laughing at me presenting in class and listening to me complain about my parents. Thank you for sending me your Quizlets and being excited for my accomplishments- every single one of them. I appreciate it all because I know that soon I won’t really see you again. And that makes me sad. I’ll no longer see your face every Monday morning, wave hello to you in the hallways or eat lunch with you ever again. We won't live in the same city and sooner or later you might even forget my name.

We didn’t hang out after school but none the less you impacted me in a huge way. You supported my passions, stood up for me and made me laugh. You gave me advice on life the way you saw it and you didn’t have to but you did. I think maybe in just the smallest way, you influenced me. You made me believe that there’s lots of good people in this world that are nice just because they can be. You were real with me and that's all I can really ask for. We were never in the same friend group or got together on the weekends but you were still a good friend to me. You saw me grow up before your eyes and watched me walk into class late with Starbucks every day. I think people like you don’t get enough credit because I might not talk to you after high school but you are still so important to me. So thanks.

With that said, I truly hope that our paths cross one day in the future. You can tell me about how your brothers doing or how you regret the college you picked. Or maybe one day I’ll see you in the grocery store with a ring on your finger and I’ll be so happy you finally got what you deserved so many guys ago.

And if we ever do cross paths, I sincerely hope you became everything you wanted to be. I hope you traveled to Italy, got your dream job and found the love of your life. I hope you have beautiful children and a fluffy dog named Charlie. I hope you found success in love before wealth and I hope you depended on yourself for happiness before anything else. I hope you visited your mom in college and I hope you hugged your little sister every chance you got. She’s in high school now and you always tell her how that was the time of your life. I sincerely hope, every great quality I saw in you, was imprinted on the world.

And hey, maybe I’ll see you at the reunion and maybe just maybe you’ll remember my face. If so, I’d like to catch up, coffee?

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
