Kim K Calls Out Taylor Swift For "Playing The Victim" During Kanye Feud
And Taylor responded with the most passive-aggressive statement EVER.
In her GQ cover story, Kim opened up about the controversy that erupted between her husband and Taylor Swift over a lyric in his song "Famous" ("I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ Why? I made that b***h famous.")
As you'll recall, Kanye always maintained that he got Taylor's approval before the song was released, while Taylor's camp denied it. Well, Kim is backing up Kanye's story, and calling Taylor out for "playing the victim."
"She totally approved that," Kim said of the "Famous" lyric. "She totally knew that that was coming out. She wanted to all of a sudden act like she didn't. I swear, my husband gets so much s**t for things [when] he really was doing proper protocol and even called to get it approved. What rapper would call a girl that he was rapping a line about to get approval?"
"Rick Rubin was there. So many respected people in the music business heard that [conversation] and knew," she continued. "I don't know why she just, you know, flipped all of a sudden. It was funny because [on the call with Kanye, Taylor] said, 'When I get on the Grammy red carpet, all the media is going to think that I'm so against this, and I'll just laugh and say, 'The joke's on you, guys. I was in on it the whole time.' And I'm like, wait, but [in] your Grammy speech, you completely dissed my husband just to play the victim again."
During Taylor's acceptance speech at the Grammy's, she made a pretty pointed comment at West. Kim went on to say that they've had no contact with Taylor since then, except for when her camp contacted them about the recorded phone call.
"And then they sent an attorney's letter like, 'Don't you dare do anything with that footage,' and asking us to destroy it," Kim said.
Taylor then issued a statement of her own, and boy, is it passive-aggressive.
"Taylor does not hold anything against Kim Kardashian, as she recognizes the pressure Kim must be under and that she is only repeating what she has been told by Kanye West," the statement reads. "However, that does not change the fact that much of what Kim is saying is incorrect. Kanye West and Taylor only spoke once on the phone while she was on vacation with her family in January of 2016 and they have never spoken since. Taylor has never denied that conversation took place."
"It was on that phone call that Kanye West also asked her to release the song on her Twitter account, which she declined to do," the statement continued. "Kanye West never told Taylor he was going to use the term 'that b**ch' in referencing her. A song cannot be approved if it was never heard. Kanye West never played the song for Taylor Swift. Taylor heard it for the first time when everyone else did and was humiliated. Kim Kardashian's claim that Taylor and her team were aware [of the lyrics] is not true, and Taylor cannot understand why Kanye West, and now Kim Kardashian, will not just leave her alone."
So what is the truth? Is Taylor really is a "fake a**," as Kanye claimed during his SNL rant? If you have the tapes, Kim, release them!
