Here's The Taylor And Kim Drama Summed Up By "Mean Girls"
Get in, loser.
Taylor and Kanye used to be friends. Kanye used to send Taylor flowers. Taylor would
Instagram the flowers. Things were once peaceful in Hollywood.
THEN the drama started earlier this year:
Kanye released a song called "Famous" that included the lyrics “I think that me and Taylor might still have sex / I made that bitch famous.” WHICH was kind of asshole-ish on Kanye's part. Taylor and her squad were SHOOK.
At first, Taylor claimed
she never approved the lyrics and even told Kanye to never release the song. This all made Kanye look incredibly bad.
told BuzzFeed: “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.’”
Taylor even went and
took a dig at Kanye in her acceptance speech at the 2016 Grammys, where she talked about the importance of taking credit for your own success and was basically all like:
In the speech,
Taylor said: "There are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishment or your fame."
Taylor's claims led to a one-of-a-kind Kanye Twitter rant, where Kanye claimed he
told her about the lyrics over the phone and she approved them. Kanye was all like:
tweeted: "3rd thing I called Taylor and had a hour long convo with her about the line and she thought it was funny and gave her blessings."
Enter Kim Kardashian:
Kim knew about Kanye's phone call with Taylor over the lyrics and was
ABSOLUTELY angry someone would play the victim.
So Kim and Kanye knew what they had to do: expose the receipts.
Kim decided to lay it all out
in a , insisting that Taylor approved the lyrics. GQ article
Kim told : “[Taylor] totally approved that [lyric]. She totally knew that that was coming out. She wanted to all of a sudden act like she didn’t. I swear, my husband gets so much shit for things [when] he really was doing proper protocol and even called to get it approved.” GQ
The article didn't seem to phase Taylor too much and she remained adamant that she DIDN'T approve the lyrics. She was basically all like:
responded to Kim's by saying: "Kim Kardashian’s claim that Taylor and her team were aware of being recorded is not true, and Taylor cannot understand why Kanye West, and now Kim Kardashian, will not just leave her alone." GQ article
Meanwhile, Taylor's relationship with her boyfriend Calvin Harris was reaching its final days because of
this drama over his song "This Is What You Came For."
THE SONG DRAMA ON YOUR OWN — WE DON'T HAVE THE BANDWITH TO GO OVER IT.)
Tension rose between the Taylor and Calvin and she eventually
called it quits with the DJ. She was basically like:
TBH, the breakup broke Calvin.
...Calvin went on a Twitter rant because he felt like Taylor was making
HIM look bad. He was basically all like:
tweeted: "Hurtful to me at this point that her and her team would go so far out of their way to try and make ME look bad at this stage though."
He then tweeted how Taylor was trying to "bury" him. Calvin was basically all like:
tweeted: "I know you're off tour and you need someone new to try and bury like Katy ETC but I'm not that guy, sorry. I won't allow it."
Calvin's tweets led to people spamming Taylor's Instagram photos
with the snake emoji...
...which led to Taylor's famous pop-foe Katy Perry to low-key retweet her own tweet from over a year ago saying "
Time, the ultimate truth teller." Katy in one picture:
AND THEN IT ALL HAPPENED:
Kim went SAVAGE
and posted video evidence of the recorded phone call in which Taylor gave Kanye permission to use the "Famous" lyrics...
Basically, the video proved Taylor actually knew about the song the whole time but she DIDN'T know about the line “I made that bitch famous.”
WHICH OBVIOUSLY THREW THE INTERNET INTO A FRENZY.
The majority of the public flipped on Taylor and got "#KimExposedTaylorParty"
trending on Twitter.
The video sent Taylor to post a very passionate response
on Instagram calling the whole thing "character assassination" and that she'd like to be "excluded from this narrative."
Meanwhile, Chloë Grace Moretz and Selena Gomez
joined the conversation to encourage others to see the bigger picture here and were basically all like:
AND THAT'S WHERE WE'RE AT, FOLKS.
Mean Girls, nothing has really been solved. It's not clear who's ACTUALLY the Regina here — Kanye or Taylor — but maybe it's time to take some advice from Cady Heron:
