News moves on pretty quickly these days, so you’ve probably already forgotten about the Taylor / Kanye drama from a while back. I’ll let you rack your brains for a minute and see if it comes back to you…
Got a vague recollection? Good.
In February, Kanye played a new song called Famous at his Madison Square Garden album launch show. In the song, Kanye raps, I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous. ….Awks.
Following the release of the song, Kanye claimed that Taylor not only personally signed off on the lyrics, but came up with them herself.
Taylors team, on the other hand, claims that shedid no such thing and was not made aware.
In her interviewwith GQ, Knaye’s wifeKim K spoke out on the topic and called bullsh*t, saying;
She totally approved that. She totally knew that that was coming out. She wanted to all of a sudden act like she didnt.
I dont know why she just, you know, flipped all of a sudden It was funny because [on the call with Kanye, Taylor] said, When I get on the Grammy red carpet, all the media is going to think that Im so against this, and Ill just laugh and say, The jokes on you, guys. I was in on it the whole time. And Im like, wait, but [in] your Grammy speech, you completely dissed my husband just to play the victim again.
Uh oh. Kim also claims theres video proof that this conversation happened because there were videographers there documenting the creation of the album. However, surely Kanye would have released it by now if that were true?
According to Kim, however, Taylor knows the footage exists because, allegedlyKanye received an attorneys letter saying, Dont ever let that footage come out of me saying that. Destroy it.
GQ contacted Taylors team for a response, and while a spokesperson declined to answer specific questions, a statement was provided basically sayingthat Taylor heard the song for the first time when everyone else did.
And it ended with this cracker:
Taylor cannot understand why Kanye West, and now Kim Kardashian, will not just leave her alone.
