So brief recap: Kanye released a song last night ‘Famous’ during his Yeezy fashion show, it contained the lyrics “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / I made that bitch famous”, many were outraged at what seems like a pretty misogynistic diss, Kanye then claimed Taylor Swift had okay’d it, she responded this morning in no uncertain terms that she had not, and now…Kanye’s sticking to his story, and going even further in a Twitter rant early Friday morning.
It began with:
“I did not diss Taylor Swift and I’ve never dissed her…”
“First thing is I’m an artist and as an artist I will express how I feel with no censorship”
“2nd thing I asked my wife for her blessings and she was cool with it”
And then it realllly gets interesting:
“I called Taylor and had an hour long convo with her about the line and she thought it was was funny and gave her blessings”
“4th thing bitch is an endearing term in hip hop like [the N word]”
But here’s the juiciest part:
“I’m not even gone take credit for the idea…it’s actually something Taylor came up with …”
“She was having dinner with one of our friend’s whose name I’ll keep out of this and she told him…”
“I can’t be mad at Kanye because he made me famous! #FACTS”
He then goes on to discourse about the state of music today, wanting to be the director of Hermes and more…but we’ll spare you that.
Stay tuned for more…
