West insisted he got Swift’s approval, which she denied. Kardashian involved herself, releasing videos of phone conversations between the pair and suggesting National Snake Day was a holiday for Swift.
Swift told fans she considered quitting music altogether before reclaiming the snake motif for her sixth album, Reputation.
“I learned that disarming someone’s petty bullying can be as simple as learning to laugh,” Swift wrote.
“I can’t tell you how hard I had to keep from laughing every time my 63-foot inflatable cobra named Karyn appeared onstage in front of 60,000 screaming fans.”
In January, Kardashian insisted there was no longer a feud between her and Swift. “I feel like we’ve all moved on,” she said in an appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen.
Does that mean things are kosher with Swift’s camp? Hardly.
“It would be nice if we could get an apology from people who bully us,” Swift wrote, “but maybe all we’ll ever get is the satisfaction of knowing I could survive it, and thrive in spite of it.”
