The story of Taylor Swift and Kanye West‘s feud will go down in pop culture history as perhaps one of the most discussed musical feuds of all time. Ever since West interrupted Swift onstage at the MTV VMAs in 2009, the pair’s relationship has been full of bad blood and plenty of drama, and things only grew more dramatic when West’s then-wife Kim Kardashian got involved.

As of 2023, it’s been years since new developments have occurred, and West and Kardashian have also since divorced, embarking on a bitter feud of their own in the process. West has since sparked controversy due to antisemitic comments and a variety of other reasons, and has moved on with Bianca Censori. Meanwhile, Swift has embarked on her Eras Tour and continues to rerecord her albums. But for a while, Swift and West were embroiled in a back-and-forth conflict involving everything from entire albums to back-and-forth comments in interviews and leaked phone calls that left the internet in hysterics.

So, what the hell actually happened between Swift and West? You’ll likely remember the VMAs debacle that started it all, but there has been plenty of fuel for the fire in between. Let’s take it back to the very beginning.
