Who is Aimee and what is actually going on? Taylor Swift and Kim Kardashian have a long history of feuding, but did Taylor really throw shade at Kim in her latest song? The internet is buzzing with speculation after the release of Taylor’s newest track, leaving fans and critics alike wondering if the pop star’s lyrics were a subtle dig at the reality TV queen. And the Swifties? They are definitely not letting go of the matter either!

The Drop of Taylor Swift’s New Album

On April 19th, Swifties eagerly anticipated Taylor Swift’s 11th studio album, “The Tortured Poets Department.” However, they were surprised when Taylor also released a secret double album titled “The Tortured Poets Department: The Anthology” just hours after the initial release. However, the singer had way more in store for her fans.

In a surprise 2 a.m. release, Taylor Swift dropped 15 additional songs, bringing the total to 31 new tracks within hours. Fans eagerly searched the lyrics for hints about Swift’s exes Joe Alwyn and Matty Healy, but were surprised to find references to Kim Kardashian on two tracks instead.

Swift and Kardashian have a longstanding feud, so when fans noticed the capitalized letters in Swift’s new track “thanK you aIMee” spell out “KIM“, they were immediately intrigued and tuned in to decipher any potential references or messages.

Taylor Swift Disses Kim Kardashian in New Song

Fans quickly noticed that in the song title “thanK you aIMee,” only three letters are capitalized. The letters spell out “KIM” which led them to speculate that it’s about Kim Kardashian. Upon listening to the lyrics, Swifties became even more convinced that the song throws shade at the ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians star.

In the song, Taylor Swift sings about a bronze spray-tanned statue in her hometown. The statue has a plaque underneath it threatening to push her down the stairs at their school. Many interpret this as a reference to Kim Kardashian’s famous tan, further fueling speculation about the song’s target.

The lyrics read:

When I picture my hometown. There’s a bronze spray-tanned statue of you. And a plaque underneath it. That threatens to push me down the stairs, at our school.” She continues: “And I can’t forgive the way you made me feel. Screamed ‘F-ck you, Aimee’ to the night sky, as the blood was gushin’. But I can’t forget the way you made me heal.”

What Happened After the Song’s Release?

In the third verse of the song, Taylor Swift mentions writing a thousand songs that someone finds uncool and building a legacy that can’t be undone. The lyrics suggest that she would not be successful without this person. Swifties believe this references the leaked phone call and Kim Kardashian’s use of the snake emoji in 2016.

After the song’s release, thousands of comments flooded Kim Kardashian’s latest Instagram post. Some were quoting the lyric, “And one day, your kid comes home singin’ a song that only us two is gonna know is about you”. The lyrics seemingly reference Kardashian’s daughter, North West.
