Kim Kardashian has been posting Snapchat videos of the conversation that her husband Kanye West had with Taylor Swift, getting the pop star’s permission to use the controversial lyrics to the song “Famous.” For those of you who didn’t get a chance to listen to The Life of Pablo, here are the lyrics in question:
“For all my south side ni**as that know me best/
I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/
Cause I made that b*tch famous/
Cause I made that b*tch famous”
Anyways, so right after the song came out, Taylor Swift made a speech at the Grammys about how people will always try and take something from you that you’ve earned:
“I want to say to all the young women out there: There are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame.”
Obviously, people immediately started to assume that she was referring to Kanye West. Which, in turn, started all the Swifties sending Kanye death threats etc.
But here’s the catch: Kanye asked her permission first, which she granted, and Kim Kardashian recorded the whole conversation. Hell, they even had Rick Rubin in the background listening to the whole thing–vetting it like Switzerland.
Taylor Swift’s Response
And now of course, Taylor Swift has responded on Twitter. She’s claiming that although she did give him permission to say “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex,” she never would have allowed him to call her “that b*tch.”
Which, truthfully, is not included in the video.
