Hot Stuff: Taylor Swift's New Romance Might Have Been Intentionally Leaked to One-Up Kim Kardashian

Still can't get over how fast Taylor Swift has moved on from her breakup with Calvin Harris? We're just totally amused at how this "swift" development in Taylor's love life has gotten everyone to be so opinionated on social media. So many haters, but Tay-tay's got her fair share of defenders, too. Well, at the end of the day, it's her life and she's gonna do what she wants to do, that's her right—no matter if the entire world's criticizing her every move.

But now, the plot thickensthanks to Kim Kardashian, this month's GQ cover girl, who might have just been the reason behind Taylor's "swiftness" in moving on. This article on The Cut explores a theory on just "why Taylor Swift let the paparazzi catch her kissing Tom Hiddleston."

In Kim's interview with GQ Magazine, which came out a full day after Hiddleswift's steamy photos went viral, she claims that Taylor is lying about not having given consent to Kanye to include the controversial lines "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous.” in his song "Famous."

She notes that they have video footage to prove that Taylor gave Kanye the green light to include those lyrics in his song:

"So many respected people in the music business heard that [conversation] and knew. I mean, he's called me a bitch in his songs. That's just, like, what they say. I never once think,‘What a derogatory word! How dare he?’ Not in a million years. I don't know why she just, you know, flipped all of a sudden."


This could've been a big deal, this could've been what we're all talking about now—had the paparazzi not caught Taylor and Tom kissing. Interesting theory you have there, The Cut—and your analysis of Taylor's colorful and impressive dating history, which seems to have been strategically mapped out? So many good points. Could Miss Swift really be that talented?


That we'll hopefully know more about in the coming weeks, but for now let's bask in all the hilarious memes this Taylor controversy has given birth to. Happy weekend!
