I made that bitch famous"—which Swift took issue with at the time, specifically the word "bitch. " In a 2016 interview with GQ, West's wife, Kim Kardashian, claimed Swift approved of the lyric ahead of time, then leaked footage of the phone call on Snapchat that seemed to corroborate that.
If you took a break from the internet this weekend, let me catch you up to speed: Late Friday night (March 20), footage of what appeared to be the complete, unedited 2016 phone call between Swift and Kanye West about his song "Famous" hit the web.
She did, however, say a few pointed words before showing fans how they can donate to the World Health Organization and Feeding America. “Instead of answering those who are asking how I feel about the video footage that leaked, proving that I was telling the truth the whole time about that call (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)…SWIPE UP to see what really matters," she wrote.
Taylor Swift has broken her silence on the newly-leaked "Famous" phone call footage from 2016.
Taylor Swift is the first person to officially break their silence on the issue, taking to Instagram Stories and urging fans to focus on "what really matters" right now—helping those affected by coronavirus—instead of petty drama.
