Taylor Swift has been playing the role of America's sweetheart for years. Over the last week, those close to her (first Calvin Harris and now Kim Kardashian) have exposed Taylor for what she truly is: straight-up sneaky. Looking back on it, we should've seen all of this coming. She's been using her girl next door charm to subtly promote her evil agenda for years now. Here are five times Taylor Swift was a s-s-s-snake.
1. That time she hugged Kanye West.
Look at her in 2015. Pretending to have put any beef between her and Kanye in the past. Now, thanks to Kim Kardashian, we know this was just phase one of her elaborate plot to later destroy him. How she knew about "Famous" so long before Kanye even thought of it, and how she had the foresight to publicly forgive him so that she could later destroy him—we may never know. She's an evil genius.
2. Any time she acted surprised to win an award.
What at first appears to be the genuine excitement of a young woman rising to the top of her industry is, in reality, an act designed to convince the public that she is humble and modest and "just like us." Ugh. We know that you know how beautiful and talented you are, Taylor. You can't convince us you're capable of being so honestly endearing and humble. Quit the act.
3. That time she visited a children's hospital.
Taking time out of her busy pop star schedule to brighten up their days or brainwashing the innocent minds of sick children? Despicable.
4. That time she invited her fans to her house.
Taylor invites total strangers to her house for secret listening parties, bakes them cookies, and makes their dreams come true and we're expected to believe she genuinely cares about her fans? Yeah, right. Those "secret sessions" were probably just recruitment events for her army. Which brings us to our next example...
5. That time she assembled an army.
Taylor's "girl squad" is not, as she would have you believe, a group of women celebrating female friendship, but rather a well-trained army set to annihilate us the moment we turn on her. She's using fear tactics to ensure that we all continue to worship her.
Wake up, people!
