In case you're just coming out of a coma and haven't heard about the latest bloodshed in our generation's Godfather feud, here's a quick rundown: late Sunday night, Kim Kardashian released video clips of a phone call that went down between Kanye West and Taylor Swift, regarding the lyrics of his then not-yet-released song “Famous.” The clips seem to put an end to the long-running debate of whether Taylor in fact gave Kanye permission to include her name in the controversial song. He says she did:
3rd thing I called Taylor and had a hour long convo with her about the line and she thought it was funny and gave her blessings— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) February 12, 2016
But Taylor's reps have strongly denied this, claiming she never condoned the song, and specifically: "Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, ‘I made that bitch famous.’"
And yet, the video clips seem to prove that yes, in fact, Taylor did give Kanye the green light. But! There may be a glitch in Kimye's (otherwise seemingly flawless) scheme.
