Kim Kardashian is a Savage, Shares Taylor Swift Phone Call on SnapChat
Yes, we know. We just wrote a story about Taylor Swift but things just got so much realer. Like, really real. As in she’s claiming she’s the victim of “character assassination” real. For the most part, no one feels sorry for her at all. In fact, people are throwing a party on Twitter, celebrating both her demise as well as the craftiness of Kim Kardashian.
This latest drama all started when Kanye West released his song, “Famous.” In case you haven’t heard it, it contains the lyric: “For all my Southside n—– that know me best / I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous / God Damn / I made that bitch famous.”
Pretty standard rap lyrics to most people. Of course, Taylor Swift took the opportunity to cry foul and paint herself as a victim when it was released back in February. Just days later, she gave this pointed acceptance speech at the Grammy Awards (and Tori Kelly was famously caught giving her the stink eye as a result):
“As the first woman to win Album of the Year at the Grammys twice, I want to say to all the young women out there: there are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame but if you just focus on the work and you don’t let those people sidetrack you, someday when you get where you’re going, you’ll look around and you’ll know it was you and the people who love you who put you there and that will be the greatest feeling in the world.”
Yeah… she should also thank all of her exes for inspiring her to write so many breakup songs (without their consent, we might add).
Naturally, people pointed their fingers at Kanye West and blamed him for hurting America’s Sweetheart, yet again, but he immediately hit back and said that he had made Taylor aware of the lyrics ahead of time and that he had approved them. Unfortunately, it seemed as though Ms. Swift had won over the public’s opinion and accepted her version of the truth.
Kim Kardashian was not about to let her husband go down like that. It must have taken all of her patience and restraint to wait for the perfect moment and, with all the Calvin Harris drama going on, this was the best time. Kim took to SnapChat to release a video of the conversation Kanye and Taylor had about the song before it was even released and, well, it’s pretty damning.
Here’s some of the juicy tidbits:
Kanye: Oh ok, dope. You still got the Nashville number?
Taylor: I still have the Nashville area code, but I had to change it.
Kanye: (rapping the line from “Famous”) “Too all my Southside n—- that know me best/I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex.”
Taylor: . . .I’m like this close to overexposure.
Kanye: Oh. Well this one is uh — I think this is a really cool thing to have, uh, definitely.
Taylor: I know. I mean, it’s like a compliment kind of. (laughs)
Kanye: What I give a f— about is just you as a person and as a friend. I want things that make you feel good. I don’t want to do rap that makes people feel bad.
Taylor: Um – yeah. I mean, go with whatever line you think is better. It’s obviously very tongue-in-cheek either way.
Taylor: And I really appreciate you telling me about it, that’s really nice.
Kanye: Oh yeah. I just have a responsibility to you as a friend, you know? And uh, I mean, thanks for being, like, so cool about it.
Taylor: Aw, thanks. Um, yeah, I really appreciate it. Like, the heads up is so nice.
Taylor: . . .things without, like, even asking or seeing if I’d be okay with it and I just really appreciate it. Like, I never would have expected you to tell me about a line in one of your songs.
Taylor: And then the flowers that you sent me, I, like, Instagrammed a picture of them and it’s the most Instagram likes I’ve ever gotten, it was like 2.7 -
Kanye: Relationships are more important than punchlines, you know?
Taylor: Yeah. I mean, I don’t think anybody would listen to that and be like, “Oh that’s a real, that’s a real dis, like, she must be crying about – ”
Taylor: It’s just you gotta tell the story the way that it happened to you and the way that you experienced it. Like, you honestly didn’t know who I was before that.
Taylor: 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. It’s fine.
Taylor: . . .in the event that I can make these things happen and I have the idea to do it and I create these things and concepts and, like, I’m always going to respect you.
Taylor: And I’m really glad that you have the respect to call me and tell me that as a friend about the song and -
Taylor: It’s just like, it’s a really cool thing to do – and a really good show of friendship. So thank you.
Kanye: Thank you, too.
Taylor: 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 the line before it came out. Like, joke’s on you guys, we’re fine.”
Taylor: You guys want to call this a feud, you want to call this throwing shade but, you know, right after the song comes out I’m going to be on a Grammy red carpet and they’re going to ask me about it and I’m going to be like, “He called me.”
Taylor: . . . and awesome that you’re so outspoken, and it’s going to be like “Yeah she does, it made her famous.” You know, so it’s more provocative to say “might still have sex” because -
Taylor: It’s not – it’s not – it doesn’t matter to me. There’s not, like, one that hurts my feelings and one that doesn’t.
In response to being called out, Taylor took to Instagram and posted the following response:
“Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me ‘that bitch’ in his song? It doesn’t exist because it never happened. You don’t get to control someone’s emotional response to being called ‘that bitch’ in front of the entire world,” the singer wrote on her Instagram account.
Of course I wanted to like the song. I wanted to believe Kanye when he told me that I would love the song. I wanted us to have a friendly relationship. He promised to play the song for me, but he never did. While I wanted to be supportive of Kanye on the phone call, you cannot ‘approve’ a song you haven’t heard. Being falsely painted as a liar when I was never given the full story or played any part of the song is character assassination.”
Uh huh… just like when you wrote a song for Calvin Harris about yourself but used a fake name, right, Taylor?
