Reality TV star Kim Kardashian is fully riding behind her husband Kanye West and explained why Taylor Swift lied about not knowing of Yeezy’s hard-hitting “Famous” song.
In her new GQ magazine cover feature, Kim K claims Swift knew about Ye’s song.
“She totally knew that that was coming out. She wanted to all of a sudden act like she didn’t,” Kim says about Taylor Swift’s reaction to Kanye West’s song Famous. Kim says Taylor’s emotional wound is nonsense and that there’s video proof, because a videographer was actually filming their––Taylor and Kanye’s––phone call and that Taylor “totally approved that [line in the song about Swift]…. I swear, my husband gets so much sh*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?” (GQ)
Kim also defended Ye calling Swift a “b*tch” on the now-infamous single.
Swift, Kim insists, “totally gave the okay. Rick Rubin was there. So many respected people in the music business heard that [conversation] and knew. I mean, he’s called me a b*tch in songs. That’s just, like, what they say. I never once think, [gasping] ‘What a derogatory word! How dare he?’ Not in a million years. 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.” Were they in touch after that? asks Weaver. “No. Maybe an attorney’s letter she sent saying, ‘Don’t ever let that footage come out of me saying that. Destroy it.’” (GQ)
In April, Swift talked about the now-infamous MTV Video Music Awards 2009 incident and no longer wanting to entertain her Kanye feud.
“I think the world is so bored with the saga,” Swift said. “I don’t want to add anything to it, because then there’s just more.” (Vogue)
Recently, Ruff Ryders producer Swizz Beatz said Yeezy wanted people to abruptly react to Kanye going at Swift on his “Famous” song.
“That’s what Kanye wanted to do,” he said. “If he didn’t get that reaction, something would be wrong. You know the lights are on and it’s showtime when you get that reaction, like, ‘Oh, that’s Kanye. Here we go.'” (Business Insider)
Earlier this year, footage of Yeezy saying Swift gave him the green light for his “Famous” lyric surfaced online.
