It's going down, I'm yelling timber....
Posted on Kim's Snapchat as well, Kim filmed the TV show segment as Kanye verified the lyrics with Taylor, who appeared to 100% approve. She was then supposed to reveal her creative input at the Grammys, but instead sold West out instead, using the lyrics to give an Album Of The Year speech about self empowerment and not letting people define your success.
Taylor posted an almost immediate response to her Instagram, saying she did not approve of being called "that bitch":
She also accused Kanye of secretly recording their phone call.
The video clarifies Swift appeared to be 100% okay with the "Me and Taylor might still have sex" line. Her defence is she did not know about, nor approve of, being called "that b*tch", as well as Kanye secretly recording their conversation (which is illegal in some parts of the US). However, her Grammys speech that shaded Kanye's lyric addressed people taking credit for her fame, which would indicate she *did* know about the lyric, because the entire line is "I made that b*tch famous". This debacle, and the solution, might depend on whether there was perhaps a demo or early version that didn't feature him calling her a b*tch...
Taylor's bestie Selena Gomez weighed in:
Kim Kardashian exposes Taylor's 'Famous' plot - Tay is NOT happy.Yikes x 10000. We've known this was coming for a while, but that didn't stop the huge explosion on social media when Keeping Up With The Kardashian's latest episode showed Kim K revealing the phone call between her husband Kanye West and pop's most polarizing figure, Taylor Swift, as they cooked up the plan to include super saucy lyrics regarding a sexual relationship between each other.
