Yeezus! Kanye West doesn’t think that he dissed Taylor Swift in his new song “Famous,” in which he says that he “might have sex” with her because he made “that bitch famous.” The rapper took to Twitter to address the critics on Friday, February 12, just hours after he debuted the song during his Yeezy 3 collection presentation in NYC.
“I did not diss Taylor Swift and I’ve never dissed her. First thing is I’m an artist and as an artist I will express how I feel with no censorship,” West, 38 tweeted on Friday. “2nd thing I asked my wife [Kim Kardashian] for her blessings and she was cool with it.”
But that’s not all. West claims that the “Bad Blood” singer, 26, actually came up with the idea herself. “3rd thing I called Taylor and had a hour long convo with her about the line and she thought it was funny and gave her blessings,” he wrote.
“I’m not even gone take credit for the idea… it’s actually something Taylor came up with,” he continued. “She was having dinner with one of our friends who’s name I will keep out of this and she told him I can’t be mad at Kanye because he made me famous! #FACTS.”
West also shared that “bitch” is actually an “endearing term in hip hop.” And despite the backlash, he’s proud of what he accomplished on Thursday night. “They want to control us with money and perception and mute the culture but you can see at Madison Square Garden that you can stop us,” he wrote.
In his No. 9 point, he added: “It felt like a seen from The Warriors ALL GODS ALL GODS ALL GODS in the buildin. not just the famous people there but the kids the moms the dads the families that came to share this moment with us.” (West and Swift previously buried the hatchet in February 2015 after his infamous 2009 VMAs stage-crash performance. They were photographed hugging at the Grammy Awards at the time.)
