Taylor Swift surprised many after she decided to speak openly about her struggles after the conflict with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Famous rapper Kanye West mentioned Swift in a negative context in his song 'Famous' Although the rapper and Kardashian later confirmed that Swift had approved such words, she denied it.

After that, Kardashian decided to release a phone call in which it looked like Taylor agreed to it. However, Swift insisted it was a set-up. “Make no mistake — my career was taken away from me,” she told PEOPLE.

"You have a fully manufactured frame job, in an illegally recorded phone call, which Kim Kardashian edited and then put out to say to everyone that I was a liar,” she said. “That took me down psychologically to a place I’ve never been before.

I moved to a foreign country. I didn’t leave a rental house for a year. I was afraid to get on phone calls. I pushed away most people in my life because I didn’t trust anyone anymore. I went down really, really hard”.

In those moments, it seemed as if everyone was against her. “I had all the hyenas climb on and take their shots”.

Taylor Swift: My response to anything that happens, good or bad, is to keep making things

It was a great lesson for her to understand who was really on her side.

Such moments motivated her to continue creating music. After everything, Swift managed to fully recover and become stronger than ever. It seems that now she can deal with much more difficult things. “I’m very careful to be grateful every second that I get to be doing this at this level, because I’ve had it taken away from me before.

There is one thing I’ve learned: My response to anything that happens, good or bad, is to keep making things. Keep making art. But I’ve also learned there’s no point in actively trying to quote unquote defeat your enemies. Trash takes itself out every single time”.
