Kanye West and Taylor Swift have been at daggers ever since the controversy around West’s contentious music video “Famous” broke. However, the singer has finally opened his mouth on the strife with Swift at the launch of “Famous” at Drake’s concert on Wednesday.
“For seven years, bruh! All I gotta say is I am so glad my wife has Snapchat, ’cause now y’all can know the truth, can’t nobody talk s— about ‘Ye no more,” he said as quoted by the Fox News.
The crowd then grooved to his song “Famous” that resounded across the stadium. Kanye appeared as a guest for the night at the concert and belted out a number of tracks. The lyrics of the song became the center point of the much-publicized feud between Kanye West and Swift. The Bad Blood singer had blasted West for using her name in the song.
“I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that b***h famous,” went West’s lyrics that sparked off the row between the two celebrities.
But Kim Kardashian’s Snapchat recording saved the grace for Kanye West. In the recording, Swift could be heard giving approval to use the part of the lyrics in the song that mentions her name. She even joked about the how the media would go into overdrive and then find out that she was “on it the whole time.”
Swift denied ever giving permission to use her name in the song. “Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me ‘that bitch’ in his song? It doesn’t exist because it never happened,” she later posted on Instagram. She claimed that being referred to as “that b***h” was the point where she felt offended, the Mail Online reported.
“He promised to play the song for me, but he never did,” Swift added. “While I wanted to be supportive of Kanye on the phone call, you cannot ‘approve’ a song you haven’t heard.”
