Taylor Swift’s good girl image may have just gone up in flames, as Kim Kardashian just proved we might’ve been wrong about the Kanye and Taylor feud. She even has solid proof this time!
For those of you who may have forgotten, Kanye dropped his song Famous featuring a lyric stating that he had made the superstar famous. Then Taylor Swift threw some subtle shade at Kanye at the Grammy’s by using her acceptance speech to say that there will always be people trying to “undercut your success”.
Kim and Kanye hit back by saying that Swift knew about the lyric and that Kanye personally called to check with the Red singer that it was okay to use. According to Kim, Taylor was completely fine with it and she was planning to announce at the Grammy’s that she knew about the lyric the whole time. Let’s be honest, did anyone actually believe the Kardashian here? Taylor’s team stated that Kayne did not call to ask for approval, but only asked if she could release his single on her Twitter account. Taylor apparently said no and warned Kanye not to drop a song with such a misogynistic message.
Yet this morning, Kim just shut down the doubters, as she posted videos of Kanye talking to Taylor about the Famous lyrics. While we can’t see Swift, it does sound exactly like her, and we hear the conversation quite clearly. Kanye read her the verse and asked if it was fine to use, and Taylor agreed easily and thanked him for asking.
“Umm, yeah 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” said Taylor. She continued on to say: “I don't think anyone would listen to that and think that's a real diss she must be crying. You've gotta tell the story the way that it happened to you and the way that you experienced it. You honestly didn't know who I was before that. It doesn't matter that I sold seven million of that album before you did that, which is what happened, you didn't know who I was before that. It's fine.”
Taylor has since responded with a picture on her Instagram and Twitter, which features a block of text saying: Of course I wanted to like the song, I wanted to believe Kanye when he told me that I would like the song. While I wanted to be supportive of Kanye on the phone call, you cannot ‘approve’ a call you haven’t heard.”
There’s no saying how ugly this battle is going to get, but if Taylor Swift decides to write a song about it, at least we have another hit single, right?
