The singer, however, went ahead and participated in Kim Kardashian’s brand campaign for her clothing label, SKIMS. This move of Carpenter invited some major backlash from Swifites who didn’t appreciate the singer’s choice to work alongside Kardashian, given her past tumultuous relationship with the Bad Blood singer. 

However in her latest interview with Rolling Stone, the Espresso singer clarified that she had already had a word with Swift before working with Kardashian. The young superstar further affirmed that there is no tension or awkwardness between Swift and her.


“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. 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 stated. 

The singer went ahead and expressed her love for Swift as she praised her stellar career trajectory, which she seems to follow in a pretty fast manner. Carpenter’s new album, Short n' Sweet, comprising blockbuster hits like Espresso and Please Please Please will be released on August 23, 2024, through Island Records.
