Totally ready to let it go. Kim Kardashian reflected on the “Famous” feud between herself, husband Kanye West and the rapper’s longtime frenemy Taylor Swift in a new interview.
Chatting with Billboard for its latest cover story, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 35, said that she wishes there was no more bad blood with the “Shake It Off” singer, 26.
“Ugh, do we really have to talk about Taylor Swift? … I’m so over it,” Kardashian told the publication with a laugh. “If it were up to Kanye, it all would probably never have come out. He can handle it, he has no hard feelings. He doesn’t even really care. I just wanted to protect my husband. I saw him getting a lot of s–t.”
As previously reported, the Selfish author took to Snapchat back in July to share video recordings of Swift speaking with Yeezy, 39, about his plans to give her a shout-out in “Famous” — in which he raps, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous.”
Naturally, Kardashian’s decision to post the clip of Ye and Swift’s convo inspired a media firestorm. However, the social media maven insisted to Billboard that she never intended to create such a ruckus.
“It wasn’t even about a look or anything, or to have this feud — it was like, ‘OK, here’s the truth,’” she told the magazine, lamenting that she is tired of being asked about the pop superstar. “Done. Let’s all move on. I feel like I don’t want to talk about her anymore.”
Though the “New Romantics” songstress told the hip-hop magnate 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.”
