Well, this has escalated for sure.
Kim Kardashain assured everybody that Taylor Swift was playing the victim in the ongoing saga between her and Kanye West over the controversial ‘Famous’ lyrics. She first told GQ that they have an actual video of Kanye and Taylor Swift’s phone call where she approves of the lyric “I feel like me and Taylor might still have s*x/ I made that b*tch famous.”
If you remember, Taylor took shots at Kanye during her GRAMMY speech in February where she told the audience, “There are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your fame” after her management denied that ‘Ye ever took permission from her for the questionable line.
Then earlier this week, a trailer for Kim’s upcoming season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians came out where she tells Kourtney that Taylor kind of helped Kanye re-write the verse and there was no question of any “miscommunication”.
Wait it's legit National Snake Day?!?!?They have holidays for everybody, I mean everything these days! ?????????????????????????????????????
