Well, it looks like Kim Kardashian has had enough! The reality television star and her husband, rapper Kanye West, have been at the center of Hollywood’s latest scandal surrounding West’s recent hit song, Famous. The song includes controversial lyrics referring to the pop singer Taylor Swift as West raps, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have s*x. Why? I made that b**ch famous.” After the song’s release, Taylor Swift’s representatives immediately dubbed the lyric as “misogynistic.” expressing that Swift never approved of the lyrics. Swift went on to condemn the song at the 2016 Grammy Awards during her “Album of the Year” acceptance speech.
The Kimye camp, however, told a different side of the story. West took to twitter to explain things from his point of view, stating, “I called Taylor and had a hour-long convo with her about the line and she thought it was funny and gave her blessings.” Swift and her reps vehemently denied this claim, telling Entertainment Weekly, “Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single ‘Famous’ on her Twitter account.”
In efforts to defend her husband, Kim Kardashian released video segments of the phone conversation between West and Swift on the night of July 17, sending social media users into a frenzy. The video shows Kanye reading the controversial lyrics to Swift, and Swift referring to the lyric as a compliment. A full transcript of the conversation can be viewed here.

The new year is but a few days old, and Kanye West has already made headlines for himself. The controversial artist just released a new song, titled “Only One,” with Paul McCartney, but that’s not all; he is claiming his late mother, Dr. Donda West, actually spoke through him on the track.
According to West’s representatives, the collaborative track between Yeezy and former Beatles’ bassist/current solo act Paul McCartney featured a special appearance by none other than Kanye’s mom with the line, “Hello, my only one.” Upon hearing playback of the track, West insisted he didn’t remember singing that line during his casual improv session with McCartney.
