Kim Kardashian: ‘There Was No Shade’ in Releasing the Taylor Swift ‘Famous’ Phone Call

The feud of the decade! Kim Kardashian dished on her “Famous” fight with Taylor Swift — the one that exploded in July when the reality star released the phone call between the pop star and her husband, Kanye West, on Snapchat.

The Selfish author, 35, who covers the autumn issue of Wonderland magazine in an all-white ensemble, insisted she didn’t dis the “Shake It Off” singer. “I never publicly talk bad about people,” she told Wonderland, as excerpted on E! News. “I still don’t feel like I have. I’m being honest. I’m a fan. I like her music. There was no shade.”

Regardless of her intentions, Kardashian revealed that she received backlash from some of Swift’s besties. “Girls in her squad hit me up on text,” she said. However, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star wouldn’t name names. “I’m not petty,” she said.

The mom of two also discussed the early stages of her relationship with West around 2012. “When he was recording Yeezus, I was so pregnant and miserable,” she said. “He had this aggression. You can hear it. He wasn’t used to this life with me. He was super famous before, but the paparazzi life is a different world.”

It seems Kardashian may have had a slight change of heart about Swift since her joint Harper’s Bazaar interview with West a few weeks after posting the phone call. Both stars gave cutting remarks when asked about their favorite Swift song. “For me? I don’t have one,” the rapper said, while the mobile-game mogul said, pointedly in the past tense, “I was such a fan of hers.”

As Us Weekly previously reported, West’s track featured a line about the “Wildest Dreams” singer: “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous.” While Kardashian’s video clips appear to show Swift signing off on the lyrics, the Grammy winner claimed she was never told she was going to be called “that bitch.” Swift told her side of the story on Instagram, writing, “Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me ‘that bitch’ in his song? It doesn’t exist because it never happened.” She added that Kimye was guilty of “character assassination.”
