Sabrina Carpenter Says There’s ‘No Weirdness’ With Taylor Swift Despite SKIMS Campaign Backlash

“I’ve been very, very communicative with her about that situation,” the star said of partnering with Kim Kardashian.

Earlier this year, Sabrina Carpenter partnered with SKIMS for a sultry campaign that many fans — including the singer’s boyfriend, Barry Keoghan — went wild for. Others, however, weren’t so happy with her choice to partner with a brand founded by Kim Kardashian, given the reality star’s famous feud with Taylor Swift.

But in a new interview with Rolling Stone published Monday (June 17), Carpenter gave assurances that the superstar — with whom she became close while opening for Swift’s Eras Tour in the spring — was totally fine with the arrangement. “As much as people want to believe you’re tuned into every little thing, I’m not because I’m constantly working,” the “Espresso” singer said.

“In that scenario, I’ve been very, very communicative with her about that situation, and I just love her so much and support her till the end,” she continued. “So it was no weirdness for me, but I know people will just say things because that’s all they have time to do.”

Carpenter also made sure to sing Swift’s praises in the interview. “I could never compare my life, my career, my trajectory to anything close to what she’s done,” Carpenter noted.

“She always puts out music at a time where I didn’t realize I needed those songs,” she added of The Tortured Poets Department. “We’re very, very verbal with each other about our mutual love and admiration. … She played me ‘But Daddy I Love Him’ before it came out, and that’s also one of my favorites.”

Though it seems Swift gave her blessing to Carpenter’s SKIMS campaign, the “Anti-Hero” singer has been very clear about where she personally stands with Kardashian. In her December TIME Person of the Year interview, she even called out the shapewear mogul by name, noting that 2016’s “Famous” debacle with Ye (formerly known as Kanye West) “took me down psychologically to a place I’ve never been before.”

“You have a fully manufactured frame job, in an illegally recorded phone call, which Kim Kardashian edited and then put out to say to everyone that I was a liar,” she added at the time.

In April, Swift also appeared to call out Kardashian again by capitalizing the letters K, I and M in the title of her The Tortured Poets Department track “thanK you aIMee.” On the song, the 14-time Grammy winner compares her subject to a high-school bully and sings, “I can’t forgive the way you made me feel … But I can’t forget the way you made me heal.”
