Taylor Swift‘s new album release date may be a subtle dig at Kim Kardashian.

Swift and Kardashian have had a years long feud – which seemed to finally come to an end in 2021 – however this latest ‘messy’ move has Taylor fans questioning whether there is still bad blood.

‘Taylor Swift announcing a new album on the 13th anniversary of the Kanye West VMA sh**show, 5 years after the premier of LWYMMD at the VMAs, which will drop on Kim Kardashian’s birthday is ICON behaviour,’ one fan wrote.

Another said: ‘It’s been 13 years since THAT Kanye-Taylor moment at the VMAs and now Taylor decides to announce her brand new album with 13 tracks at the VMAs today that will be released on October 21st which also happens to be Kim K’s birthday. HER MINDDDDD!!!’

‘oh taylor’s releasing on kim’s birthday? WE LOVE TO SEE HER BEING MESSY,’ a third fan penned on Twitter.

Many Swifties pointed out the not-so-subtle irony that the singer-songwriter dropped the news of her album at the VMAs 13 years after Kim’s estranged ex infamously interrupted her acceptance speech at the same show.

Look what you made her do: Swift and Kardashian have had a years long feud - which seemed to finally come to an end in 2021 - however this latest 'messy' move has Taylor fans questioning whether there is still bad blood

The feud between the pair was sparked by Taylor’s earlier beef with Kanye that began when he invaded the stage during the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards when Taylor was honored for Video of the Year.

Then, in 2016, Kanye dropped the song Famous which included the lyric: ‘I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that b***h famous.’

Taylor was upset over the lyric but Ye claimed he had spoken to Swift and she gave the song her blessing.

Kim hit back at Taylor, calling her a ‘snake’ for claiming she had ‘no idea’ Kanye would call her a ‘b****’ in the song.

Taylor has previously spoken about the extreme ‘isolation’ she felt and the attacks she endured in the weeks after Kardashian likened her to a ‘snake’.

‘A mass public shaming, with millions of people saying you are quote-unquote cancelled, is a very isolating experience,’ said Swift.

The bad blood between the Kardashian-Wests and Swift worsened after audio from a phone call between Ye and Taylor discussing the song was leaked.

Several versions of the call came out with both sides accusing the other of editing or manipulating it.

Kim revisited the long-running feud as recently as March 2020 as she accused Swift of lying.

Kim posted a series of messages at the time, claiming Swift is not being fully truthful about the 2016 phone call with her and Kanye West about the song Famous – and the ongoing dispute as to whether Swift was aware of West’s lyrics, in which he called her a ‘b****.’

Last year, however, Kim sat down for an interview and was asked what her favorite Taylor Swift song was.

Kardashian said: ‘I really like a lot of her songs. They’re all super cute and catchy. I’d have to look in my phone to get a name.’

Now Taylor’s latest album may be the next chapter in the saga between her and Kim.

‘Midnights, the stories of 13 sleepless nights scattered throughout my life, will be out October 21. Meet me at midnight.’

Midnights will be Swift’s first album of new material since 2020’s Evermore.

In the second slide of the post, the Grammy winner gave fans a bit of context of the concept behind the new long-player.

Alongside a picture of Swift with her head in her hands, she wrote on social media: ‘We lie awake in love and fear, in turmoil and in tears. We stare at walls and drink until they speak back.’

‘We twist in our self-made cages and pray that we aren’t – right this minute – about to make some fateful life-altering mistake.

‘This is a collection of music written in the middle of the night, a journey through terrors and sweet dreams. The floors we pace and the demons we face.’

‘For all of us who have tossed and turned and decided to keep the lanterns lit and go searching – hoping that just maybe, when the clock strikes twelve … we’ll meet ourselves.

She concluded: ‘Midnights, the stories of 13 sleepless nights scattered throughout my life, will be out October 21. Meet me at midnight.
