In 2016, Taylor Swift and Kanye West’s long-standing feud came to a head. It all started when Kanye interrupted Taylor’s speech at the VMA’s to say her award was deserved by Beyonce.

After years of subtle digs at each other, the singer’s came to a truce with Swift posting about the reconciliation on her social media. Then, Kanye released his song Famous in 2016 in which he called Taylor a ‘b*tch’ and the singer publicly shamed him. After his wife Kim Kardashian revealed that Taylor had known about the song all along, social media turned completely against her and she went radio silent.

Before she released her latest album Reputation, Taylor wiped her social media clean. Since then, she has only posted about her album and her tour, and occasionally about her cats. That is the extent to which Taylor has posted about her personal life.

Now however, Taylor has taken to Instagram to reminisce about her childhood home. Swift was born in Reading, Pennsylvania. Her father was a financial adviser and her mother was a homemaker. The singer grew up on a Christmas tree farm before her family moved to Wyomissing, Pennsylvania where Swift went to high school.

Swift recently posted a picture of herself holding up a scrap book with a baby picture of her in it. She captioned the picture, “Take me home.” The scrapbook page reads, “Taylor, 4 years old. Playing hop-scotch in the driveway.” The rest of the written account is illegible. Taylor came to Philadelphia as part of the Reputation stadium tour.

Before coming to Philadelphia, Swift was also recently seen hanging out with pal Gigi Hadid, who was repping Swift’s album in her snake sweatshirt. Hadid and Swift have not been seen together in a while, making fans think the squad Swift was known for was gone. However, Hadid along with Martha Hunt and the Haim sisters were all seen at Swift’s Tribeca apartment on Friday morning.
