Taylor Swift fans believe they have uncovered the ‘bronze spray-tanned statue’ line referenced in her Tortured Poets Department track thanK you aIMee, which is believed to be inspired by her feud with Kim Kardashian. 

At the start of the guitar-driven ballad, the 34-year-old songstress sings: ‘When I picture my hometown / There’s a bronze spray-tanned statue of you /And a plaque underneath it /That threatens to push me down the stairs, at our school.’

One of Swift’s most devoted fans, using the handle @downbadam, took to X to reveal that the statue mentioned could be the one of Athena Parthenos in the Nashville Parthenon, which has a giant snake on it. 

It ties back to a 2016 tweet from Kardashian, now 43, aimed at Taylor at the height of their tension.

At the time, the reality television star had posted, ‘Wait it’s legit National Snake Day?!?!? They have holidays for everybody, I mean everything these days!’ with a string of snake emoji.

Following Kim’s tweet, Swift was hit with a slew of snake emoji on social media apps before repurposing it in 2017 when she released her album Reputation.

The latest discovery from the Swifties comes after a source told People on Tuesday that Kim had put the bad blood behind her and wants Taylor can learn to do the same.

‘She’s over it and thinks Taylor should move on,’ the person said, adding that Kim ‘doesn’t get why [Swift] keeps harping on it.’

‘It’s been literally years,’ the person emphasized.

After Kim appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday, some Swift fans took to the internet to complain that the host hadn’t asked her about Thank You Aimee or the years-old friction.

‘Why not ask her about the Taylor Swift song that North will be singing!’ wrote one person on Instagram.

Another wrote: ‘Jimmy, I’m 100 percent sure you weren’t allowed to speak or ask questions about Taylor or TTPD but you could have least “slipped up” a couple of times and called her aIMee.’

In addition to the suggestive title, fans believe the new song is aimed at Kim given its chorus: ‘All that time you were throwin’ punches, I was buildin’ somethin’ / And I can’t forgive the way you made me feel / Screamed “F*** you, Aimee” to the night sky, as the blood was gushin’/ But I can’t forget the way you made me heal.’

In another part of the tune, Taylor sings about removing ‘defining clues’ about the person she’s singing about, and she added, ‘I changed your name,’ which drew more listeners to the title.

The feud between Taylor and Kim traces back to the 2016 release of Kanye West’s The Life of Pablo.

On the song Famous, Kim’s ex-husband raps: ‘I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that b**** famous.’

The line — which alludes to when the 46-year-old rapper interrupted Taylor’s acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards — was supposedly passed on to the songstress for approval, but she denies ever giving it the OK.
