July 17th was National Snake Day–and also marked two years since Kim Kardashian started her feud with Taylor Swift by referring to her as a snake on Twitter. Kim’s fans embraced the nickname and basically started bullying Taylor on Twitter. Well, Taylor has since embraced the snake as a symbol and declared on the opening night of her Reputation tour, “I wanted to send a message that if someone uses name calling to bully you, that doesn’t have to defeat you. It can strengthen you instead.” Yesterday, Taylor made a subtle reference to the debacle by wearing a faux-snakeskin Kate Spade backpack as she hit the streets of New York. The hashtags #KimApologizeToTaylor and #TaylorSwiftWonParty began trending soon after.
Niall Horan took a break from his tour on Monday to hop a flight to New York so he could spend some time with rumored girlfriend Hailee Steinfeld. Photos show the two holding hands and looking happy.
Thomas Markle says the only reason he keeps doing interviews is because his daughter Meghan and the royal family are ignoring him. ” All they have to do is speak to me.” Thomas goes on to say that he thinks the royals are hoping he goes away if they ignore him. He insists that all he wants is to be in contact with Meghan–especially because Wednesday marks his 74th birthday.
