Taylor Swift was never really cancelled, but she likes to pretend she was 

No one wants nice songs anymore. They want a persona they can emulate, a life they can fantasize about living within, and most of all, they want a redemption story. The story of Taylor Swift, Kanye West, and Kim Kardashian’s social media altercation played out in real-time. Fans and haters alike (is there much difference between the two?) were able to have a very, virtual impact on the perception and fall out between the three celebs. Swift suffered the most hate, but her emergence from “cancel culture” gives fans exactly what they want. 

Taylor Swift had a rough time back in 2016. She went through that very 21st-century experience that so many of us have gone through, that of being cancelled. In Swift’s case, it was the result of pop culture faction warfare. She went up against the phenomenon then known as Kimye—Kanye West and Kim Kardashian—and lost. Their fans against her fans, he said she said, a war over who knew what when about what Kanye was going to sing in his song “Famous.” In the track, he references Swift, muses on the likelihood of them ever having sex, and also calls her a bitch.
