Why Fans Think Taylor Swift is Throwing Shades at Kim Kardashian With ‘Midnights’ Release Date

Singer Taylor Swift might be throwing some shade at reality star Kim Kardashian with the release of her latest album, at least according to some fans.

On Sunday night, the “I Bet You Think About Me” singer announced that she was dropping her tenth studio album, “Midnights” on October 21, which just so happens to be Kim’s birthday.

And, given the “Bad Blood” between them, fans don’t think that it’s a birthday present.

Is Taylor Swift Shading Kim Kardashian With ‘Midnights’ Album Release?

The “Cruel Summer” singer and the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” reality star don’t seem to be on the best of terms due to Taylor’s ongoing feud with Kim’s now ex-husband, rapper Kanye West.

In 2009, the “Donda” rapper interrupted Taylor’s VMA speech with his infamous “I’mma let you finish” speech. Even though the two seemed to bury the hatchet, in 2016, Kim leaked a phone call alleging that Taylor gave the Yeezy designer permission to use the lyrics, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex.”

Taylor vehemently denied the allegations and alleged that she was being recorded without her knowledge. The two have been feuding ever since and some fans think that Taylor is throwing some shade on “The Kardashians” star by overshadowing her birthday with her album release.

Twitter Weighs In, Calls Taylor An ‘Icon’ For Apparently Diss

One fan tweeted, “Taylor Swift announcing a new album on the 13th anniversary of the Kanye West VMA s—show, 5 years after the premier of LWYMMD at the VMAs, which will drop on Kim Kardashian’s birthday is ICON behaviour.#MeetMeAtMidnight.”

LWYMMD stands for “Look What You Made Me Do,” the first single off her Reputation album. Fans believe that several songs on the album take shots at Kanye West.

Another user tweeted, “13 years after the VMA incident she announces a new album (at the VMAS) with 13 tracks that releases on Kim Kardashian’s birthday. The album is supposedly about her ‘sleepless nights’. The devil works hard but Taylor swift works harder.”
