Kim K tries to prove that Taylor Swift is a liar
The big question that has been bugging everyone for a while now: Did Swift approve those controversial lyrics referenced in West's song "Famous" ?
The pop singer was left furious, remaining adamant that she had never heard the full track before its release in February and did not realise she would be referred to as “that b****”.
Her rep team later released a statement, saying that there had been a phone call, however “Kanye West never told Taylor he was going to use the term 'that b**ch' in referencing her. A song cannot be approved if it was never heard.”
On Sunday Kim Kardashian-West, who previously accused Swift of “playing the victim” and a "liar", defended her husband by posting a series of short Snapchat clips of both musicians discussing the lyrics over phone.
In the video, the 39-year old is heard citing the first part of the line
“To all my southside n****s that know me best, I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex”.
No reference is made to the part that caused the actual tension.
"I don't want to do rap that makes people feel bad." West explains in the video.
"Umm, yeah I mean go with whatever line you think is better," Swift responds. "It's obviously very tongue in cheek either way. And I really appreciate you telling me about it, that's really nice."
Swift, who had cautioned West about releasing a song with a "strong misogynistic message", fired back at the couple's accusations, captioning a post on Instagram with
“That moment when Kanye West secretly records your phone call, then Kim posts it on the Internet."
The post read:
"Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me 'that b****' 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 b****' 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.
