The Full Taylor Swift–Kanye Phone Call Leaked, And Everyone Owes Taylor Swift An Apology
Let me break this down.
Basically, the gist of it was this: Kanye and Kim Kardashian West claimed that they notified Taylor about his song "Famous" and the lyric "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex."
"[Taylor] totally approved that [lyric],” Kim said in an interview with GQ. “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.”
In the original phone call that was released, there was no proof that she'd approved the lyric that calls her a bitch.
Taylor told the public that she never consented to being called a bitch — or to being secretly recorded!
Still, Taylor was harassed, bullied, and dubbed a "snake" by Kim and fans online.
Like, she literally had to turn off her Instagram comments.
Now the full conversation has leaked — nearly four years later — and it proves one thing: Taylor was telling the MFing truth.
In the new, full call, Kanye says, "What if I said I made you famous?" Taylor pushes back and sounds uncomfortable, saying this:
Did you say that? Oh god. Well, what am I gonna do about it? I mean, it's kind of whatever at this point. But, I mean, you gotta tell a story the way it happened to you and the way that you experienced it — you didn't know who I was at that point. It doesn't matter if I pulled 7 million records off [Fearless] before you did that [at the VMAs] — which is what happened.
