The public feud between Kimye and Tay-Tay went full ratchet late last night!
Back when West dropped his song “Famous,” Swift took umbrage with the following lyrics:
For all my Southside n***as that know me best / I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that b**ch famous…”
After Kanye got blowback over the passage he claimed he had a conversation with Swift in which she gave him the OK. Taylor’s rep issued a statement at the time denying this was the case:
Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single ‘Famous’ on her Twitter account. She declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message. Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, ‘I made that bitch famous.’
Kim Kardashian later jumped into the fold during a GQ cover story interview when she said that Taylor was lying about the song and that she was just saying she was offended to promote herself. Swift swiftly responded to that with another public statement in which she pleaded for Kim and Kanye to leave her alone.
In the midst of all this back and forth Kim and Kanye both stated they had a video recording of Swift approving the song. It was reported that Taylor threatened legal action if the video was released.
Kim Kardashian posted a series of Snapchat videos showing the secret recording of her husband Kanye West and Taylor Swift discussing “Famous.” Kanye is heard laying out the rhyme, “For all my Southside n***as that know me best, I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex.”
Swift is heard saying, after a little hard sell from West, that being mentioned in the song is “like a compliment.” Kanye then tells Taylor, “What I give a **k about is just you as a person and as a friend,” before she informs him to “go with whatever line you think is better.”
Swift is later heard telling West, “I really appreciate you telling me about it, that’s really nice. Even asking or seeing if I’d be OK with it. I just really appreciate it. I would never have expected you to tell me about one of the lines in your song.”
Swift wasted no time in responding to this by highlighting again that there was no mention of Kanye using the line “that b***h.”
Before Kim posted the video she called Taylor a snake via Twitter:
Wait it's legit National Snake Day?!?!?They have holidays for everybody, I mean everything these days! ?????????????????????????????????????
