[Blind Gossip] What’s a Kanye album release without a little controversy? In this case, the controversy is over some lyrics about Taylor Swift in his song Famous, including the following:
I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that bitch famous.
When someone dared to tell tell Kanye that his lyrics were misogynistic, Kanye took to Twitter to rant.
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
Taylor Swift’s publicist denies that ever happened.
Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single Famous on her Twitter account. She declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message. Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, “I made that bitch famous.”
Wait a minute. If Taylor didn’t know the lyrics… how did she know that the song was misogynistic? Perhaps Kanye told her about the line about having sex with her, but skipped the “Bitch” part?
Anyway, Kanye seems to think that calling a woman “Bitch” is fine.
4th Bitch is an endearing term in hip hop like the word Nigga
He then went on to claim that the lyric was Swift’s idea.
5th thing 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 friends whose name I will keep out of this and she told him I can’t be mad at Kanye because he made me famous! #FACTS
Kanye’s friend is also a friend of Taylor’s. It’s someone famous. Taylor is not happy with that person right now.
