If you care at all about the petty micro-dramas of celebrity life—don’t give me that look, I goddamn know you do—you’ve already heard that Kim Kardashian had the receipts to prove that Taylor Swift was warned about and approved the personally provocative lyrics to Kanye West‘s “Famous.”
But call me jaded; I just didn’t find anything about this beef all that juicy. I couldn’t escape the feeling that it was a little bit forced, a little desperate. And, as many on Twitter were quick to point out, there are far more important things to worry about at the moment. Here are just a few:
It’s true. Did you hear about the things? Very important.
There are so many more important issues to be worried about than Kanye fucking west and Taylor swift having some petty stupid argument

Arguably as important as the things are the issues.
There's more important stuff in the world than the whole Taylor Swift drama

There’s no denying the importance of stuff.
fucksake, there's so much more important shit going on in the world other than just what kim k's doing to slag Taylor swift off

Shit is among the most important things (or “stuff”) I can think of.
5) Shit Happening
Also important: shit happening.
6) Finding a Pikachu
I don't give two shots about Taylor swift or Kim k. Y'all shut up! ITS A DISTRACTION FROM THE MORE IMPORTANT THINGS!! LIKE FINDING A PIKACHU

It’s frankly offensive that anyone would consider anything more important.

Not to be confused with “issues,” we cannot forget the importance of “matters.”
SMH at anyone who thinks stories aren’t important.
I actually think news and Taylor are equally important, but OK.
10) Actual News
Meanwhile, actual news is definitely more important.
This Kim k and Taylor swift drama is dumb af. Worry about something more important.

Something may be the most important of all.
