I’m not sure if this is a massive dick move on behalf of Kim Kardashian, or whether it’s a good thing to have two sides to a story but either way the reality star has shared videos across her social media of a phone call between her “bae” Kanye West and singer Taylor Swift.
If you’re not up to date with the pop world, settle in for a minute, because the feud between Kanye and Taylor has been ongoing since before Instagram was even a thing, and people had to physically follow Kim Kardashian if they wanted to know what she was up to. Or watch the TV show that’s been following her life around for the past nine years… anyway.
The beef started back in 2009, when Kanye got up on stage to interrupt Taylor Swift as she accepted an award for “Best Video” at the VMA’s for “You Belong With Me”, basically saying that Beyonce was a more worthy recipient:
Yes, it was all very awkward, but the man clearly had a passion for the track “Single Ladies”, we all did back in those days. Anyway, from then on things have been understandably frosty between the pair and I can’t be sure because I don’t know the woman, but last I heard Kim Kardashian isn’t known for her skills in peace and diplomacy.
You can dance girls, but we all know there’s an iron fence of “f*ck you” going on in between there:
Recently, the whole thing took an even nastier turn with Kanye wrote these lyrics dedicated to Taylor in his recent track, Famous:
“I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex… Why? I made that bitch famous.”
Not cool, and Taylor was understandably upset by the lyrics. Her people said:
Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single Famous on her Twitter account. She declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message. Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, I made that bitch famous.
But apparently, according to a phone conversation recorded by Kim, Taylor is a “liar” after apparently approving the lyrics. Watch the video, from the “yeah it’s a compliment” to the “I’m really pleased that you’d tell me about it, it’s really nice”, it is pretty incriminating:
Kim has literally just deleted the videos from her Instagram account KimKSnapchats, but it’s obviously now all over Youtube… but maybe not Tidal.
What do you think? An invasion of privacy, or necessary in today’s music business? Let us know in the comments.
