Hello. I'm sure you know by now that earlier this year Kanye West released a song called "Famous" with the lyrics "I think that me and Taylor might still have sex / I made that bitch famous". This caused a LOT of drama.
In Taylor's first statement about the song, she claimed that she never approved the lyrics, and warned Kanye not to release it.
To this, Kanye replied that she definitely heard it and loved it.
In response to that, Taylor's publicist released this statement to GQ, which kinda tells a different story to her earlier comment.
Kanye West and Taylor only spoke once on the phone while she was on vacation with her family in January of 2016 and they have never spoken since. Taylor has never denied that conversation took place. It was on that phone call that Kanye West also asked her to release the song on her Twitter account, which she declined to do. Kanye West never told Taylor he was going to use the term ‘that bitch’ in referencing her. A song cannot be approved if it was never heard. Kanye West never played the song for Taylor Swift. Taylor heard it for the first time when everyone else did and was humiliated. 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.
So, no one really knew who to believe because both parties had very different stories about how it all went down.
THIS IS WHERE SHIT GETS MESSY. Today, Kim uploaded the video of the phone call between Kanye and Taylor to Snapchat. AND GUYS, THERE IS SO MUCH HERE TO UNPACK.
THEN IT GETS INTERESTING.
In the video, she also tells Kanye that she would talk about the song on the Grammys red carpet.
It's all very messy.
UPDATE: Taylor just posted this to Instagram.
