Since the 2009 MTV Awards, there has been ongoing "tension" between Kanye West and Taylor Swift. Glimpses of peace among the two megastars were seen (mostly through photo ops), but behind the pearly white smiles, we all subconsciously knew that their kobe beef was a long way from being cooked.
Less than a year after Taylor presented Kanye with the Video Vanguard Award at the 2015 VMAs, the 'All Falls Down' lyricist mentioned the famed pop singer in, "Famous", one of the most notable cuts from The Life of Pablo. The provocative line caused Swift to immediately defend her character by publicly stating she had no knowledge of being mentioned in the tune prior its release. Mr. West , on the other hand, took to twitter where he shared his side of the story, tweeting that she actually knew of the song and controversial line.
Fast forward to last night, Kim Kardashian West dropped a bombshell of a clip on snapchat, displaying her husband speaking on the phone with Taylor clearly asking for her permission to use the "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex " line. Check out Swift's rebuttal on lnstagram below:
"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. 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. I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative, one that I have never asked to be a part of, since 2009."
As the drama unfolds to an all-time high, what are your thoughts on the new revelation? Should we feel sorry for Taylor? or is Kanye in the clear for truthfully stating he did contact her before the song was released?
Let me know...
