With record-breaking attendance, she got personal with her thousands of fans when she explained that her recent affinity for snakes is all about Kim.
Sitting at the piano, the “Shake it Off” singer explained, “A couple of years ago, someone called me a snake on social media and it caught on. And then a lot of people called me a lot of names on social media. And I went through some really low times for a while because of it. I went through some times when I didn’t know if I was gonna get to do this anymore and I guess the snakes… I wanted to send a message to you guys that if someone uses name calling to bully you on social media and even if a lot of people jump on board with it, that doesn’t have to beat you. It can strengthen you instead.”
Swift didn’t put Kim on blast by name, however, it’s the internet and tweets live forever. This is the tweet the Grammy winner was talking about. Also, note that Kim doesn’t call Taylor out by name either but everyone knew who she was talking about.
Swift is fully embracing the snake name calling and featured the reptiles prominently in the set for her show.

Along with hoards of Swifties supporting the singer were her momma and boyfriend, Joe Alwyn, who were both front and center at the show.
Concertgoers went bananas when Swift appeared to point directly at the handsome Brit during the song “Gorgeous.” Swift and Alwyn have been romantically linked since this time last year.
Taylor Swift’s Reputation Tour is slated for 53 concerts, spanning several continents and concluding in Tokyo in November 2018. Camila Cabello and Charli XCX are both joining the “Style” singer on tour and joined her on stage last night during a performance of “Shake it Off.”
