Taylor Swift Hits Back At Kanye West Over ‘Famous’ Song Lyric Rift

Taylor Swift has accused Kim Kardashian of “character assassination” after the reality TV star released a recording of her seemingly approving a controversial line in Kanye West’s song Famous. The song includes lyrics that claim he propelled her to stardom when he upstaged her at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2009 to declare that Beyonce should have won her prize. On Twitter on Sunday, Kardashian teased: “Do u guys follow me on snap chat? u really should ;-)" West’s wife then posted a video of a phone conversation between her husband and Swift in which he said he was working on a song and wanted to include the lyric, "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex.”

I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex, why? I made that b***h famous.

Kanye West’s controversial lyric

Swift is heard saying she worries about overexposure, but West says the lyric would be good exposure. In the end, she appears to give her blessing, saying: "It’s like a compliment, I really appreciate you telling me about it, that’s really nice.“ West then responds: "I just had a responsibility to you as a friend. Thanks for being so cool about it." Many people on social media suggested it proved Swift had lied when she claimed she did not know about the lyric. But in an Instagram post, which she reposted on her Twitter account on Monday, Swift argued the recording actually proved she had never approved the second half of the lyric

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.
