Taylor Swift Responds to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s “Famous” Video Footage
“Where in 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. You don’t get to control someone’s emotional response to being called ‘that bitch’ in front of the entire world,” the post began. “Of course I wanted to like the song. I wanted to believe Kanye when he told me that I would love the song.”
She continued, “I wanted us to have a friendly relationship. He promised to play the song for me, but he never did. While I wanted to be supportive of Kanye on the phone call, you cannot ‘approve’ a song you haven’t heard.”
Taylor went on to express her hopes to not be a part of this conversation for much longer.
Speculation regarding how much was communicated between Taylor and Kanye before the release of “Famous” has gone on for several months. In several Snapchats posted Sunday evening, Kim provided a glimpse into portions of the phone call exchanged by the music performers.
Later on in the conversation, Taylor confessed: “If people ask me about it I think it would be great for me to be like, ‘Look, he called me and told me the line before it came out. Jokes on you guys, We’re fine.'”
None of Kim’s Snapchats, however, feature video or audio of Taylor approving the lyrics “I made that bitch famous.”
