During the 2015 MTV VMAs, it looked like Kanye West and Taylor Swift had made up. She presented him with the Vanguard Award, she talked about how great he was, and the two even awkwardly hugged. It looked like they had come a long way since West went crazy during her Best Female Video acceptance speech in 2009. It was definitely a cringe-worthy, “WTF dude” moment, but it looked like the beef was finally over.
However, in his new song “Famous,” things get a little murky. The Internet is already blasting the rapper for supposedly “attacking” with the lyric, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex, I made that b*tch famous.” Celebs have also voiced their disapproval.
One of the first was Orange Is the New Black star Ruby Rose, who hung out with Swift on New Year’s Eve.
However, according to TMZ, West called Swift to tell her about the mention beforehand.
Sources directly connected with Swift tell TMZ Kanye called her to explain it was a joke and wanted to make sure she wouldn’t be upset. We’re told Swift said she got the joke and gave him the thumbs up to release the song with the lyric.
Swift has yet to comment, but her brother is already taking a stand.
West has since went crazy on Twitter about the accusations, because, of course he did.
Well, ok then.
