We NEVER would have guessed the specific reason behind Kanye West’s line in ‘Famous’ about how he made Taylor Swift just that, but thanks to Kim Kardashian’s confession in the July 17 episode of ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’, we now have the answer!
Oh, this is too good. Kim Kardashian, 34, revealed that Kanye West, 39, was literally just quoting Taylor Swift, 26, when he wrote the line, “I made that b*tch famous.” Yep, Kim shared that Taylor herself said it! “She told everyone at the table, ‘Well, I mean it’s true, whatever. Kanye totally made me more famous.’ And so that’s (why) Kanye came up with the line,” Kim said. Wow!
The rest of the episode was more or less a T-Swift exposé, as Kim went deeper into how Kanye has Taylor on tape approving of “Famous”! “Whenever Kanye’s recording an album, Kanye has videographers with him 24/7, recording everything,” Kim explained. “It was really important to [Kanye] that he spoke to [Taylor], and they knew it was going to be controversial. The camera crew filmed him speaking to Taylor and recorded the whole conversation…he called her, spoke to her — she even helped him rewrite [the song].” OMG.
We also got to view some never-before-seen footage of Kanye recording “Famous”, in which Kylie, Kim and Kourtney dance along as Kanye raps the Taylor line.

Kim also reiterated that Tay agreed to the whole thing, but then “she got freaked out by the reaction and all of a sudden she flipped”. It’s not a secret that Kim has been furious at Taylor for dragging Kanye throughout this whole thing, and we’ll never forget the scathing interview she gave GQ magazine.
Khloe also gave her two cents: “Everyone’s so full of sh*t and it pisses me off.” Well, someone’s not afraid to speak her mind!
HollywoodLifers, are you shocked that Taylor herself said the line in “Famous”?
