We’re guessing that by now you are aware that Kim Kardashian served us all some serious shade last night by releasing videos that proved Kanye West had called Taylor Swift about approving the controversial lyrics to his track ‘Famous’.
In case you have been living under a rock, Taylor publicly slammed Kanye at the Grammy Awards for his “misogynistic” comments, with the lyric reading: “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ I made that b*tch famous”.
Kim and Kanye have always maintained that Kanye had called Tay to approve the lyrics because he valued her as a friend, however, Taylor’s team have consistently denied this and the 26-year-old star was quick to fall into her conventional “victim” role as the song hit the airwaves.
Now Kim has proven that Taylor was lying.
Despite being exposed, Taylor continued to insist that she was the victim, releasing a statement on Instagram that said that despite her laughing over the lyrics in the video, she hadn’t “approved” the final song, and she had taken issue to being called “that b*tch” - perhaps the only thing that Kanye did not specifically mention in the video.
It was clutching at straws to say the least.
If you can’t be bothered to watch the full video, or if you simply can’t make out what is being said, we have provided the full transcript of Taylor and Kanye’s phone conversation for you to make your own mind up:
Kanye: “For all my south side n*ggas that know me best, feel like me and Taylor might still have sex.
Taylor: I’m like this close to overexposure.
K: Oh well this one is — I think this is a really cool thing to have.
T: I know! I mean, it’s like a compliment kind of [laughs].
K: What I give a f*ck about is just you as a person, and as a friend.
T: That’s sweet.
K: I want things that make you feel good. I don’t wanna do rap that makes people feel bad.
T: Yeah. I mean, go with whatever line you think is better. It’s obviously very tongue in cheek either way. And I really appreciate you telling me about it, that’s really nice!
K: Yeah. I just felt I had a responsibility to you as a friend. I mean, thanks for being so cool about it.
T: Aw, thanks! Yeah I really appreciate it. Like, the heads up is so nice! People do things without like even asking or seeing if I’d be OK with it. And I just really appreciate it. I never would’ve expected you to tell me about a line in your song. And then the flowers that you sent me, I Instagrammed a picture of them and it’s the most Instagram likes I’ve ever gotten. It was like 2.7 million.
K: Relationships are more important than punchlines, you know.
T: Yeah. I mean, I don’t think anybody would listen to that and be like, 'Oh, that’s a real diss. Like, she must be crying about it…’ You gotta tell the story the way that it happened to you and the way you experienced it. Like, you obviously didn’t know who I was before [the 2009 VMAs]. 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. I can make these things happen and I have the ideas to do it and I create these things and concepts. And, like, I’m always gonna respect you. And I’m really glad you had the respect to call me and tell me as a friend, about the song. It’s just a really cool thing to do, and a really good show of friendship. So thank you.
K: Thank you too.
T: 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 about the line before it came out.’ Like, joke’s on you guys, we’re fine. You guys wanna call this a feud, you wanna call this throwing shade. But right after the song comes out I’m gonna be on a Grammy red carpet and they’re gonna ask me about it and I’m gonna be like, 'He called me.’ It’s awesome that you’re so outspoken and it’s gonna be like, 'Yeah, she does, it made her famous.’ It’s more provocative to say we might still have sex… It doesn’t matter to me. There’s not one that hurts my feelings and one that doesn’t.
There you have it, Taylor - over to you.
