Kanye West has just gone off on Taylor Swift’s camp for saying he’s ‘misogynistic’ for calling her a ‘b*tch’ in his new song, ‘Famous.’ In a lengthy Twitter rant, he says he actually called Taylor and told her about the lyric and she was totally cool with it.
This is war! Kanye West is attacking Taylor Swift‘s team for saying he’s a huge jerk for the sexist things he says about her in his new song “Famous,” that he debuted at his Yeezy Season 3 fashion show at NYC’s Madison Square Garden on Feb. 11. But the rapper told his over 18 million Twitter followers on Feb. 12 that not only did he tell Taylor, 26, about the lyric, she was the one who came up with it! This has to be one of Kanye’s most epic Twitter rants and you are definitely going to want to take a seat and grab a cup of coffee because this is going to take a while.
Get a load of this! Kanye says that first off, he’s not sexist, because he told Taylor about this exact lyric. So even though her publicist put out a statement slamming Kanye and saying they had no clue about the lyric, he’s calling bullsh*t. Kanye says not only did he get Taylor’s approval but he also got the okay from Kim Kardashian. Kanye says that Taylor actually went to dinner with a friend of their’s and that’s when Taylor said herself that Kanye “made her famous.” Kanye is totally on the defensive and feels like he’s being unfairly portrayed.
But tell that to Taylor’s brother, Austin Swift, who posted a video on Instagram of himself throwing away his pair of Yeezy sneakers after the single came out. Between that and Taylor’s statement, it makes it hard to believe that they actually knew about this lyric. This is the statement Taylor’s rep, Tree Paine released after the lyrics for “Famous” dropped: “Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his singleFamous 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.'”
