This Is The Full Transcript Of The Phone Call Between Taylor And Kanye
An in-depth look at Kim Kardashian's Snapchat story.
Hey there. As you may or may not know, there is Drama™ currently occurring between Taylor Swift and the Kardashian-West family.
The drama spans millennia (OK, a couple of years), but what it basically comes down to is that Kanye West wrote a song in which he said he and Taylor "might still have sex" because he "made that bitch famous".
Kanye said he had Taylor's approval to release the song. Taylor said she did not give her approval. Kim said there was video proof of Taylor giving her approval. Nobody knew what to believe.
UNTIL NOW. Because Queen Kim Kardashian, sick and tired of the lies, blessed all of our petty hearts by releasing said video on her Snapchat story.
The video shows Kanye on the phone to Taylor, discussing "Famous", their friendship, and Taylor's Instagram likes.
You may not have Snapchat, and if you do, you might not follow Kim K. But fear not, friend, because we are here for you. Here is ~exactly~ what was said during the (in)"Famous" phone call.
Kanye West: For all my south side niggas that know me best / Feel like me and Taylor might still have sex.
Taylor Swift: I'm like this close to overexposure.
KW: Oh, well this one is — I think this is a really cool thing to have.
TS: I know! I mean, it's like a compliment kind of [laughs].
KW: What I give a fuck about is just you as a person, and as a friend.
TS: That's sweet.
KW: I want things that make you feel good. I don't wanna do rap that makes people feel bad.
TS: Yeah. I mean, go with whatever line you think is better. It's obviously very tongue in cheek either way. And I really appreciate you telling me about it, that's really nice!
KW: Yeah. I just felt I had a responsibility to you as a friend. I mean, thanks for being so cool about it.
TS: Aw, thanks! Yeah, I really appreciate it. Like, the heads-up is so nice! ... People do things without like even asking or seeing if I'd be OK with it. And I just really appreciate it. I never would've expected you to tell me about a line in your song. And then the flowers that you sent me, I Instagrammed a picture of them and it's the most Instagram likes I've ever gotten. It was like 2.7 million...
KW: Relationships are more important than punchlines, you know.
TS: Yeah. I mean, I don't think anybody would listen to that and be like, "Oh, that's a real diss. Like, she must be crying about it…" You gotta tell the story the way that it happened to you and the way you experienced it. Like, you obviously didn't know who I was before [the 2009 VMAs]. It doesn't matter if I sold 7 million of that album before you did that, which is what happened. You didn't know who I was before that ... I can make these things happen and I have the ideas to do it and I create these things and concepts. And, like, I'm always gonna respect you. And I'm really glad you had the respect to call me and tell me as a friend, about the song. It's just a really cool thing to do, and a really good show of friendship. So thank you.
KW: Thank you too.
TS: And you know, if people ask me about it, I think it would be great for me to be like, "Look, he called me and told me about the line before it came out." Like, joke's on you, guys, we're fine. You guys wanna call this a feud, you wanna call this throwing shade. But right after the song comes out I'm gonna be on a Grammy red carpet and they're gonna ask me about it and I'm gonna be like, "He called me." ... It's awesome that you're so outspoken and it's gonna be like, "Yeah, she does, it made her famous." It's more provocative to say we might still have sex ... It doesn't matter to me. There's not one that hurts my feelings and one that doesn't.
