Taylor Swift and Kanye West have been feuding with each other ever since we can remember. The clash between the two Pop and Hip-hop giants began back in 2009 at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMA) where Kanye interrupted Taylor’s acceptance speech for ‘Best Female Video.’ However, things escalated to a whole new level when Kanye West released his 2016 hit “Famous” which was bathed in controversy.
“Famous” single had the controversial lyrics;
For all my Southside n*ggas that know me best
I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex
Why? I made that b*tch famous
Naturally, these lyrics sent a few shockwaves around the industry. However, Kim Kardashian-West came to the aid of her husband and released a recording of a phone conversation between Kanye West and Taylor Swift. In this recording, it seemed as if Taylor was giving consent to the controversial “Famous” lyrics.
Taylor Swift’s publicist said in an interview that Taylor never agreed for these lyrics. And Taylor seconded it.
After this Kim Kardashian-West Tweeted out messages intending Taylor Swift is a two-tongued snake. Taylor based this backlash for her entire ‘Reputation‘ album.
This was Kanye’s explanation for the “Famous” lyrics bashing Taylor Swift;
Fast forward to 2020…
A series of a leaked recordings of the phone conversation between Taylor Swift and Kanye West seems to reveal that Taylor was right after all. This full conversation seems to shed new light into the situation where the recording posted by Kim Kardashian seems to have been edited for their benefit.
Listen to the Full Leaked Recordings Between Taylor Swift and Kanye West Over “Famous” Lyrics Controversy
Somehow, the full conversation between Taylor Swift and Kanye West regarding consent for “Famous” lyrics surfaced online. This 6-minute conversation seems to reveal the truth behind the controversy.
Taylor Swift seems to be all good with the “me and Taylor might still have sex” lyric, which was included in the snippet released by Kim Kardashian. However, nowhere in the full recording does Kanye reveal the “I made that b*tch famous” lyric, which Taylor Swift had the issue about from the beginning.
This whole situation is yet another proof that the truth cannot be hidden. It will surface someday and that is definite.
As usual, Taylor’s loyal fanbase is slamming Kanye West and Kim Kardashian over the manipulation of information on social media. Needless to say, a new hashtag #KanyeWestIsOverParty is trending worldwide on Twitter.
What do you think about this feud between Taylor Swift and Kanye West? Drop a comment below.
Taylor Swift subtly referenced to this leaked phone conversation when she posted a story on her Instagram calling out fans for donations to World Health Organization (WHO).
She added; “Instead of answering those who are asking how I feel about the video footage that leaked, proving that I was telling the truth the whole time about *that call* (you know, that one that was illegally recorded, that somebody edited and manipulated in order to frame me and put me, my family and my fans through hell for 4 years…), please join me in donating during this crisis.”
Kim Kardashian seemed to have refueled anger towards this post by Taylor Swift. She went on a several-Tweet rant defending Taylor Swift’s “manipulation” of the situation.
In summary, Kim Kardashian says that she never defended her husband, Kanye West, about taking permission on the word “b*tch” on “Famous” lyrics. She says that the argument was whether Kanye called Taylor Swift at all about the song, which they did. However, in the leaked phone conversation we do hear Taylor warning Kanye about putting out a “misogynistic” message.
Taylor’s publicist went on to clarify the situation, yet again, after Kim Kardashian’s statement.
