Oh, snap! Kim Kardashian just called out Taylor Swift for lying about not knowing about Kanye West’s “Famous” lyric. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star posted a series of Snapchat videos on Sunday, July 17, revealing West’s phone call with Swift, during which the 1989 singer seemingly signs off on the controversial jam. Watch Kardashian’s illuminating videos above!
“For all my Southside n—as that know me best, I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex,” West can be heard telling Swift while discussing the track. Swift then tells the rapper, “I’m like this close to overexposure,” before agreeing that the lyric is “like a compliment.” (The full lyric in the song off West’s album The Life of Pablo reads, “I feel like me and Taylor still might have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous.”)
“What I give a f–k about is just you as a person and as a friend,” West tells Swift, before she tells him to “go with whatever line…[you think is] better.”
“I really appreciate you telling me about it, that’s really nice,” the “Wildest Dreams” singer can also be heard telling West. “Even asking or seeing if I’d be OK with it. I just really appreciate it. I would never have expected you to tell me about one of the lines in your song.”
Swift also told West that she would plan on telling the press that he called her and they were all good. “If people ask me about it, I think it would be great for me to be like, ‘Look he called me and told me the line before it came out. Joke’s on you guys, we’re fine,’” she tells West.
After Kardashian’s Snapchat story went viral, the “New Romantics” singer posted an Instagram Monday, claiming that she wasn’t informed that she would be referred to as “that bitch” in the song.
“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. You don’t get to control someone’s emotional response to being called ‘that bitch’ in front of the entire world. Of course I wanted to like the song. I wanted to believe Kanye when he told me that I would love the song. I wanted us to have a friendly relationship. He promised to play the song for me, but he never did. While I wanted to be supportive of Kanye on the phone call, you cannot ‘approve’ a song you haven’t heard,” her statement read. “Being falsely painted as a liar when I was never given the full story or played any part of the song is character assassination. I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative, one that I have never asked to be a part of, since 2009.”
As previously reported, Kardashian told GQ in an interview that Swift was aware of the lyric after her rep claimed that she was blindsided by West.
“Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single ‘Famous’ on her Twitter account. She declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message,” her rep previously told Us. “Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, ‘I made that bitch famous.'”
Prior to releasing the audio of their conversation on Sunday, Kardashian also called Swift a snake on Twitter. “Wait it’s legit National Snake Day?!?!?They have holidays for everybody, I mean everything these days! 🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍,” the social media maven tweeted.
