The Taylor Swift/Kanye West/Kim Kardashian drama over the rapper’s song “Famous” took an interesting turn over the weekend, when the full version of the notorious 2016 phone call leaked around social media.
Swifties believe the 25-minute clip proves that Swift was right the whole time, and confirms she was never asked about being called a “b—-” in Ye’s song. The video shows Kanye discussing the tune with the songstress, and asking for her permission to use her name. He asks about the first line, which ended up as “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex,” but he does not mention the follow up lyric in question.
While Kardashian seemingly responded by liking a tweet claiming the video shows “nothing new,” Swift (kind of) acknowledged the development on Monday (March 23) by focusing on the world’s more pressing issues.
“Instead of answering those who are asking how I feel about the video footage that leaking, proving that I was telling the truth the whole time about *that call*,” Swift wrote on her Instagram story, “(you know, the one that was illegally recorded, that somebody edited and manipulated in order to frame me and put me, my family, and fans through hell for 4 years)…”
