The long-running argument between Kanye West (42) and Taylor Swift (30) has flared up again. A telephone conversation has been leaked on social media that the singer was not aware that the rapper would call her a bitch in his single ‘Famous’. Kanye is now on Twitter.
The feud between the singer and the rapper started at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2009. During the show, Kanye stormed the stage when Taylor received the award for ‘Female Video of the Year’. He took the microphone from her and announced that Beyoncé should have won the statue.
Since then, the atmosphere between the two has been tense. And it didn’t improve when Kanye rapped about the superstar in his song ‘Famous’ in 2016. “I think Taylor and I might still be able to have sex. Why? Because I made that bitch famous,” he sang. When the song came out, Taylor said she was unaware of the lyrics. According to the rapper, that was not correct. Kim Kardashian recorded it for her husband and shared the phone call on which the singer seems to agree with the lyrics. Taylor then received a flood of hate reactions from Kanye fans.
Now the story turns out to be different. On Friday, the full 25-minute phone call surfaced. In this new version, the singer is hesitant about the song and asks if it is ‘mean’. Kanye assures her that this is not the case and shares a different text than the final lyrics of ‘Famous’. The singer says she should think about it and asks if she can hear the result before giving her permission.
On Twitter, people are now massively expressing their displeasure with the lies of Kim and Kanye and the fact that Taylor received so much criticism about the matter at the time. For example, #KanyeWestIsOverParty, #KanyeIsOverParty and #TaylorToldTheTruth are trending. None of the three have yet responded to the new leaked phone call.
