Taylor Swift Gave a Suuuper Pointed Speech Before Playing "thanK you aIMee" for the First Time

Taylor Swift played "thanK you aIMee" (aka her Kim Kardashian diss track) for the first time at London's Wembley Stadium on Saturday night, and she...had something to say right before!

Ahead of performing the song, Taylor told her massive audience "We get to play Wembley Stadium eight times this summer. And when you think about that, you think about just being grateful and being thankful to all the people who wanted this for you. And that's all of you here tonight. Clearly, you thought this was a good idea, you could do this, you wanted this to happen. Blows me away. I’ll spend forever trying to thank you properly for that."

She added (and this is the part that's 👀) "Then on the other hand, it really makes me think about how every time somebody talks shit, it just makes me work even harder and it makes me that much tougher. So, it also makes me incredibly thankful for those people."

Tay then went straight into "thanK you aIMee," a song largely believed to be about her long-standing feud with Kim Kardashian. Thanks to...you know...lyrics like this:

Everyone knows that my mother is a saintly woman
But she used to say she wished that you were dead
I pushed each boulder up the hill
Your words are still just ringing in my head, ringing in my head

Oh, and:

And maybe you’ve reframed it
And in your mind, you never beat my spirit black and blue
I don’t think you’ve changed much
And so I changed your name, and any real defining clues
And one day, your kid comes home singin”
A song that only us two is gonna know is about you

As you were!
