Kim Kardashian Exposed Taylor Swift and the Tea is Delicious!

So. Sunday night was one of those epic nights on Twitter where everyone united in jokes and was basically on the same side. The cause for this unification was brought to us by none other than Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and Taylor Swift.

On Sunday night’s episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” it featured Kim’s interview with GQ where she addressed Kanye and Taylor’s ongoing feud, this time due to Kanye’s lyrics about Taylor in his song, “Famous.”

The lyrics are, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous.”

In the interview, Kim said she had proof Taylor approved the lyrics and was lying saying she didn’t. Well, after her E! reality show aired, Kim turned her Snapchat into the Summer Jam screen and exposed Taylor.

She posted video of a recorded phone call between Kanye and Taylor, where Kanye recites the lyrics to Taylor, so he can get her approval. Kanye comes to Taylor like a friend and says relationships are more important than punchlines.

Their exchange goes as follows:

Kanye West: OK, dope. You still got the Nashville number?
Taylor Swift: I still have the nashville area code but i had to change it…
Kanye: For all my south side n****s that know me best, feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Taylor: I’m like this close to overexposure.
Kanye: Oh well this one is, uh — I think this is a really cool thing to have
Taylor: I know! I mean it’s like a compliment kind of.
Kanye: What I give a fuck about is just you as a person, and as a friend.
Taylor: That’s sweet.
Kanye: I want things that make you feel good. I don’t wanna do rap that makes people feel bad.
Taylor: Um, ya. I mean, go with whatever line you think is better. It’s obviously very tongue in cheek either way. And I really appreciate you telling me about it, that’s really nice!
Kanye: Yea. I just felt I had a responsibility to you as a friend. I mean, thanks for being so cool about it. Taylor: Aw, thanks! Yeah I really appreciate it. Like, the heads up is so nice!
Taylor: …things without like even asking or seeing if I’d be OK with it. And I just really appreciate it. I never would’ve expect you to tell me about a line in your song.
Taylor: And then the flowers that you sent me, I Instagrammed a picture of them and it’s the most Instagram likes I’ve ever gotten. It was like 2.7…
Kanye: Relationships are more important than punchlines, you know.
Taylor: Yeah. I mean, I don’t think anybody would listen to that and be like, Oh, that’s a real diss. Like, she must be crying about…
Taylor: You gotta tell the story the way that it happened to you and the way you experienced it. Like you obviously didn’t know who I was before that.
Taylor: It doesn’t matter if I sold 7 million of that album before you did that, which is what happened. You didn’t know who I was before that.
Taylor: … that I can make these things happen and I have the ideas to do it and I create these things and concepts. And, like, I’m always gonna respect you.
Taylor: And I’m really glad you had the respect to call me that and tell me that as a friend, about the song. It’s just a really cool thing to do, and a really good show of friendship. So thank you.
Kanye: Thank you too.
Taylor: And you know, if people ask me about it, I think it would be great for me to be like, Look, he called me and told me about the line before it came out. Like, joke’s on you guys, we’re fine.
Taylor: You guys wanna call this a feud, you wanna call this throwing shade. But right after the song comes out I’m gonna be on a Grammy red carpet and they’re gonna ask me about it and I’m gonna be like, he called me.
Taylor: …awesome that you’re so outspoken and it’s gonna be like, Yea, she does, it made her famous! It’s more provocative to say, Might still have sex.
Taylor: …it’s not. It doesn’t matter to me. there’s not one that hurts my feelings and one that doesn’t.


Now, as we all know, when “Famous” premiered back in February, Taylor was singing a much different tune about the lyrics. Her representative released a statement basically throwing Kanye under the bus saying, “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.’”

Also, who could forget Taylor’s now infamous Grammy acceptance speech a few weeks later where she threw some not-so subliminal shots at Kanye.


As you can imagine, all these receipts Kim dropped sent #BlackTwitter into overdrive. Taylor was being exposed for playing the victim (again) and there was now undeniable proof. Regardless of how you feel about Kim and her family, you have to respect the fact she sat on this information for MONTHS and waited until Sunday night’s episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” to drop a bomb. She sat through Taylor’s statement denying knowing about the lyrics as well as her Grammy speech. Not to mention, all the critics who maligned Kanye for those lyrics when he was given approval the whole time.

But the night didn’t end there. Taylor released a statement of her own on Instagram saying Kanye never told her he was going to call her “that bitch” and “being falsely painted as a liar when I was never given the full story or played any part of the song is character assassination.”


That moment when Kanye West secretly records your phone call, then Kim posts it on the Internet.

Clearly, this won’t be resolved anytime soon and it’s possible legal action could be taken. This doesn’t look good for America’s sweetheart.
