Is the Taylor Swift and Kim Kardashian feud finally over?

As you know all too well (no pun intended), Taylor Swift and Kim Kardashian have a rocky history. 

Their very public friendship breakup was a result of Kanye West's infamous interruption during Swift's 2009 VMAs acceptance award. He had insinuated while storming the stage and taking the mic that Beyoncé had been more deserving of the award. 

Though there were apologies and cryptic songs as a result (many Swifties suspect "Innocent" is about the rapper) things were still not quite right, despite posing together for photos at the 2015 Grammys.

West's song "Famous" had a few questionable lyrics about Swift, which ultimately led to Kim's involvement. Swift claimed she was not made aware of the lyrics, to which the Skims founder rebutted with a tape recording of a conversation between Swift and West that acknowledged the verses. We all know how that went.  

It's been bad blood ever since.

But now, it appears the two are on (somewhat) solid terms. During her appearance on the Honestly With Bari Weiss (opens in new tab) podcast in December, Kardashian admits to listening to Swift's music...even if she cannot quite pinpoint which track she likes the best.

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

Well, at least things are civil, but we're not counting on KKW attending a TSwift concert any time soon. 

During this podcast appearance, the reality star even opened up about her love life—though she didn't give explicit details. She was asked about her favorite Saturday Night Live actor and replied: "What a set-up! You know who it is."

Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson sparked romance rumors following her hosting gig on SNL in October, and it seems the two are pretty happy spending time with one another. 

As for Swift, she's rerecording her classic albums and keeping fans on their toes about what's coming next. No one ask KKW which album she wants rerecorded next.
