Country singer Taylor Swift has come out to address being singled out by rap star Kanye West‘s wife Kim Kardashian in a now-released secret recording.
Swift went to Twitter last night (July 17) and addressed Kim K trying to expose her secret chat with Yeezy about “Famous.”
Last night (July 17), Kim K went to Snapchat and exposed Swift giving Yeezy her approval to name-drop her on “Famous.”
A few days ago, Kim K defended calling out Swift in a recent GQ interview and said she felt the need to publicly speak out.
“I never talk sh*t about anyone publicly, especially in interviews but I was just, like, I so had it. I just felt like I wanted to defend [Kanye] in it because it’s like, she legitimately, quote says, ‘As soon as I get on that Grammy red carpet I’m gonna tell all the press. Like I was in on it.’ [It was] just another way to play the victim. It definitely got her a lot of attention the first time. I just don’t think he should be punished for it still to this day.” (“Keeping Up with the Kardashians”)
Last month, Swift’s camp issued a statement and denied having knowledge of Ye’s name-dropping “Famous” song before its mass release last winter.
“Taylor does not hold anything against Kim Kardashian as she recognizes the pressure Kim must be under and that she is only repeating what she has been told by Kanye West. However, that does not change the fact that much of what Kim is saying is incorrect. Kanye West and Taylor only spoke once on the phone while she was on vacation with her family in January of 2016 and they have never spoken since. Taylor has never denied that conversation took place. It was on that phone call that Kanye West also asked her to release the song on her Twitter account, which she declined to do. Kanye West never told Taylor he was going to use the term, “that b*tch” in referencing her. A song cannot be approved if it was never heard. Kanye West never played the song for Taylor Swift. Taylor heard it for the first time when everyone else did and was humiliated. Kim Kardashian’s claim that Taylor and her team were aware of being recorded is not true, and Taylor cannot understand why Kanye West, and now Kim Kardashian, will not just leave her alone.” (Statement)
