So, Kanye just released a new music video… and it features *this* pretty significant member of Taylor Swift's girl squad. Ouch!
It’s probably the biggest thing to happen in terms of showbiz dramz since maybe the One Direction hiatus or something as similarly catastrophic.
We’re, of course, referring to the celebrity feud of the year- otherwise known as Taylor Swift ft. squad vs. Kimye. Two famous forces so strong the world may as well just end now and it would be less dramatic.
So, if you don’t already know the deal (we’re not judging- but how?!) then this is the situation…
After Taylor had been very vocal over her distaste at Kanye’s lyrics about her on his track Famous, Kim leaked a video of Taylor appearing to agree to the use of the lyrics. It didn’t go down too well, really, as some celebs started to take sides and Taylor shared a pretty upset Instagram post…
After this explosive situation, celeb-world had appeared to go back to its usual business. Until Kanye released his latest music video, that is.
And, although this one doesn’t feature a naked Taylor-Swift-lookalike, à la ‘Famous’, it *does* feature a pretty significant member of Tay-Tay’s girl squad… Awks.
So, Kanye’s latest project is a collaboration with Balmain- as his music video for ‘Wolves’ also doubles as a feature video for the Fall/Winter 2016 campaign for the fashion house.
It’s pretty common knowledge that Tay-Tay’s squad features a substantial number of supermodels- including BFF Alessandra Ambrosio… Yep, you guessed it- in a pretty awkward turn of events, Alessandra stars in the video.
Along with fellow supermodels Jourdan Dunn and Joan Smalls, Alessandra appears amongst Sia, occasional-girl-squad-memeber Kendall Jenner. and (awkward pause) Kimye, a.k.a Swifty’s arch enemy.
Yep- that happened. In fact, some may even liken Kanye’s latest project to being like his own couture version of Tay’s ‘Bad Blood’, having assembled an army of pretty big names-in-the-game.
However, it’s also very plausible that this is all in the name of Art and everyone might actually be friends again. That would be nice, wouldn’t it?
