Are you still following this thing? Wow, you guys. What a way to distract from the Sunday scaries.
Kanye West releases “Famous,” a song on his newest album, The Life of Pablo, that includes the lyrics “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/Why? I made that bitch famous.”
Taylor Swift objected to the song’s “strong misogynistic message,” particularly the line “I made that bitch famous.”
In a cover story for GQ, Kim Kardashian claimed that Swift was given a head’s up about the song by Kanye West himself.
In a Snapchat story on Sunday night, Kardashian posted the video of the call, where Swift thanks Kanye for the head’s up. “I really appreciate it,” she says. “This is so nice.”
Swift clearly does not think Kardashian posting this video is “so nice.” She just responded on Instagram and Twitter:
Swift writes that she never approved the “I made that bitch famous” line—and it’s true that in the video Kardashian posts, West never goes over that line. Swift goes on to accuse West and Kardashian of “character assassination.” “I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative,” she concludes, “one that I never asked to be a part of, since 2009.”
