While the feud between Kim Kardashian and Taylor Swift may finally be over, that doesn't mean the pain felt during that time has just gone away.
In 2016, Kanye West released his song "Famous," in which he rapped, "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that b***h famous." We all remember it. Fans will then also recall the 29-year-old singer taking issue with the lyric, claiming she did not give him permission to include it. Kim K quickly came with receipts, releasing a phone call between Taylor and Kanye in which she did approve of the song, even calling it "a compliment."
This quickly started the famous feud between Taylor and Kim, which prompted the snake emoji spamming. The 38-year-old reality star began a social media bullying campaign of the singer, suggesting she was a snake, and it immediately took off. Fast forward to 2019, and it doesn't look like there's any bad blood between the pair, shockingly. But the "Bad Idea" songstress hasn't forgotten how terrible it was for her.
In a new feature for ELLE, published today, Taylor reflected on the feud, writing:
"In my experience, I’ve come to see that bullies want to be feared and taken seriously. A few years ago, someone started an online hate campaign by calling me a snake on the internet. The fact that so many people jumped on board with it led me to feeling lower than I’ve ever felt in my life."

According to my birth certificate, I turn 30 this year. It’s weird because part of me still feels 18 and part of me feels 283, but the actual, factual age I currently am is 29. I’ve heard people say that your 30’s are ‘the most fun!’ so I’ll definitely keep you posted on my findings on that when I know. But until then, I thought I’d share some lessons I’ve learned before reaching 30 with @elleusa, because it’s 2019 and sharing is caring.? Check in with @elleusa for the piece, posting tomorrow.
"It would be nice if we could get an apology from people who bully us, but maybe all I’ll ever get is the satisfaction of knowing I could survive it, and thrive in spite of it," Taylor added.
It surely doesn't look like Taylor is taking a direct shot at Kim here, but is rather explaining how awful it was for a huge part of the internet to be against her. We couldn't even imagine the pain she went through.
For Kim's part, she's made it known she doesn't have anything against Taylor anymore, explaining on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen in January that she's "over" the feud. "I feel like we’ve all moved on," she stated. A few days later, the KKW Beauty founder posted a Snapchat while listening to Taylor's song "Delicate."

While both parties might not have any reason to keep their feud going, we don't suspect they'll be hanging out anytime soon.
