More than a year before Kim Kardashian released husband Kanye West’s phone call with Taylor Swift over the rapper’s lyrics in his controversial song “Famous,” the “Shake It Off” singer, 26, seemingly foreshadowed some of the drama in her explosive feud with the powerful celebrity couple.
“I have a lot of issues with buildings like this, 'cause I always feel like someone has bugged the room, and is either videoing me or recording me," Swift said in a February 2015 interview with the U.K.’s CapitalFM. "So that's one of my paranoias."
The pop superstar also explained that she often worries she could potentially be framed for murder. "I always have nightmares that I'm being framed for murder and then I'm being framed so well that I can't remember if I did it or not in the dream," she revealed. "So that really winds me up, and then I'm just freaked out for the next couple of days.”
Incidentally, Joseph Kahn — Swift’s friend and “Bad Blood” music video director — compared the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star’s brutal takedown of Swift to Nicole Brown Simpson’s 1994 murder.
"Ain't the first time the Kardashians supported the murder of an innocent blonde woman,” Kahn, 43, tweeted on Monday, July 18. The tweet was written in reference to Kardashian’s late father, Robert Kardashian, who defended O.J. Simpson in his trial for the killings of his ex-wife, Nicole, and her friend Ron Goldman. The former NFL star was acquitted of the murders.
As previously reported, the Selfish author, 35, took to Snapchat on Sunday, July 17, to share video recordings of Swift speaking with Yeezy, 39, about his plans to give her a shout-out in “Famous.”
Though the “Blank Space” songstress told the hip-hop star that she “really [appreciated]” his heads-up about using her name on the track, she shared her side of the story via Instagram shortly after their discussion made its way online.
“Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me ‘that bitch’ in his song?” Swift wrote. “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.”
