Taylor Swift told the TRUTH about call with Kanye West over his song Famous

A leaked video appears to have proven Taylor Swift told the truth about her phone call with Kanye West over his controversial song Famous.

The pop star, 30, was previously branded a ‘snake’ by Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian West after she claimed she had ‘no idea’ Kanye would call her a ‘b***h’ in the song.

Kim shared a clip at the time which showed Kanye consulting Taylor about whether he could use the line ‘I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex’, suggesting that Taylor had lied about being forewarned about the song.

The backlash Taylor received from Kim’s claim is thought to be the part of the reason behind why she took a hiatus from music shortly after.

However a new clip that surfaced on social media appears to show that  Kanye didn’t consult Taylor about the lyric, and only asked her about the other line in the song, which was previously mentioned by Kim.

In the footage which has been shared on Twitter, Kanye can be seen informing Taylor he is writing a song about her and asked her if she could add hype to the song by tweeting it out.

Kanye tells her: ‘It has a very controversial line at the beginning of the song about you.’

Kanye then told Taylor she ‘sounded sad’, and the singer questioned if the lyrics were ‘mean’, to which he reassured her he didn’t think they were. 

Explaining the context to the lyrics he explains: ‘It says, uh… and the funny thing, when I first played it and my wife heard it, she was like, “Huh? What, that’s too crazy,”

‘And then when Ninja from Die Atwoord hear it, he was like “Oh my god, this is the craziest s**t, this is why I love Kanye…” and now, it’s like my wife’s favourite f***ing line… I just wanted to give you some premise of that.’

He then says the lyric: ‘To all my Southside n***as that know me best / I feel like Taylor Swift might owe me sex.’

Taylor laughs and says: ‘That’s not mean.’

‘OK, well this is the thing why I’m calling you, because you got an army, you own a country of motherf***ing 2bn people, basically,’ Kanye says. 

‘If you felt that it’s funny and cool and hip hop, and felt like it’s the College Dropout and Ye that you love, people would be way into it, and that’s why I think it’s super genius to have you be the one that says, ‘Oh I like this song a lot… this is cool.’

Taylor then tells Kanye that she needs some time to think about it, adding: ‘When you hear something for the first time you need to think about it, because it is absolutely crazy.’

There is no mention that Kanye would call her a ‘b***h’ or suggest that he ‘made her famous’ during the phone call. 

In a separate clip which is circulating on Twitter which appears to be from the same call, Taylor tells Kanye:‘I [sold] a full 7m of that album before you did that, which is what happened.’

It is believed she is referencing her album Fearless and Kanye’s stage-invasion when she was honoured for Video of the Year at the AMAs.
