Talk show host Wendy Williams thinks it is time for Taylor Swift to “move on” from her feud with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. During the opening night of her Reputation stadium tour, Williams said that Swift’s behavior is all an act and she is really the “meanest” of the mean girls.
“For all the sweetie pie, peaches and cream reputation that she tries to have, she’s like one of the meanest girls in the music business, OK!” Williams said, adding that “the controversy is selling. But, I don’t care about any of it. Move on!”
But Williams didn’t move on, and instead, she kept up her criticism by saying Swift is one of those girls you like from afar, but you don’t want her to be your friend. However, she admitted – while laughing – that she was a Swiftie and she likes her long legs and personality.
Swift returned to the spotlight this week when she kicked off her latest tour in Arizona. During the show, the 28-year-old said that a couple of years ago someone called her a snake on social media and it caught on. She added that a lot of people started calling her a lot of names and she ended up going through some low times for a while because of it.
She even admitted that she went through times when she didn’t know if she would “be able to this anymore” before transitioning into a speech about online bullying.
Swift filled her 110-foot stage with snake images, including an actual 30-foot cobra. The snake symbol was the result of her now infamous feud with Kardashian and West that started in 2016. In the rapper’s track Famous from his Saint Pablo album, he included the lines, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ Why, I made that b***h famous.”
The Shake It Off singer did not like those lyrics, but West took to Twitter and claimed that he called Swift ahead of time to get her approval. But she says she only approved of certain lyrics, but not the line “I made that b***h famous.”

At that point, Kardashian got involved. She had recorded the phone call between her husband and the pop singer and posted it for everyone to hear on Snapchat. Fans could easily hear Swift praising the rapper, and that resulted in the “liar” and “snake” labels from West’s fans.
Swift has also had issues in the past with Katy Perry resulting in “miscommunications and hurt feelings.” But this week Taylor Swift posted a video of an olive branch in her dressing room that Perry sent her. It was the 33-year-old’s attempt to clear the air and apologize.
