TRIBUTES FROM AROUND THE world have been flowing in this morning after 26-year-old pop star Taylor Swift became the third female victim of the Kardashian family’s rampage through popular culture.
She was found late last night face down in a bowl of Fruit Loops at her Los Angeles home.
Known primarily for either being photographed with their genitals out or having them renovated, the Kardashian-Jenner clan lashed out at Ms Swift earlier this week for denying she knew about Kanye West’s track ‘Famous’ before it was released.
For local readers who are unfamiliar with who these people are, they are the voices you hear when you find an FM radio station on your way to Charleville or Longreach.
In this aforementioned track, Mr West, who is the husband and sole caregiver to wife Kim Kardashian, made a number of lewd references to Ms Swift, who expressed her shock and outrage once the track hit the charts.
However, Kim released a short video that allegedly proves that Taylor knew about the track beforehand and personally signed off on it.
Social media exploded, with hundreds of thousands of impressionable young people forced to pick a side as the war lines were drawn out.
The Advocate spoke briefly to local 14-year-old Em Carterslee, who reluctantly sided with Swift.
“It’s not fair that people are saying she killed Taylor,” she said.
“When you’ve got her stepdadmom killing people on the street with her Hummer and an old family friend getting away with premeditated murder, that’s different,”
“I went with Taylor because she is a good role model and just got caught playing the game. She got her fame by standing up on stage with a guitar, not on her back in a hotel room.”
