It honestly feels a little strange attending a Kanye West concert in 2016, even for someone who has been to all of his tours, including the not-yet-famous rapper's "College Dropout" jaunt a dozen years ago when he brought along a huge live band led by also not-yet-famous pianist John Legend.

The problem for Ms. Swift is two-fold: she's a super-successful female in a world that is deeply ambivalent, at best, about female success, and also, she mines her life for her music, angering a lot of people in the process.

The recent feud between Swift and Kardashian may, on the surface, look like petty celebrity gossip. But it tells us more about our modern landscape, demonstrating a master class in controlling the narrative and tearing down your competitor, than almost any relevant MBA case study.

There's just something about successful women that we love to tear down, especially when they're revealed to not be as perfect as they present themselves to be. So, Taylor lied about discussing a few lyrics. Burn her to the ground. Chris Brown beat up Rihanna. Buy millions of his albums. Woody Allen allegedly molested his young daughter. Give him all the Oscars. The fact of the matter is, celebrities lie to protect themselves all the time. This isn't new. But when a successful woman lies? Oof. We better take her down a peg or two and try to ruin her career.

Twitter is having none of this.

So it's gonna be forever?
It's like we don't even know her anymore!
She never goes ~out of style.~

But she "Shake It Off" all the way to the bank.
Another day, another celebrity feud
Note to Kanye West: Only Taylor Swift made Taylor Swift famous.
