Kim Kardashian Defends Husband Kanye After Taylor Swift Reignites Beef
Buckle up! Two of the most powerful women in the entertainment industry are butting heads again! Frustrated Kim is tired of the fight, especially because she thought it was over.
Taylor Swift can really hold a grudge!
Taylor Swift Versus Kimye
"Shake It Off" singer Taylor Swift and "Bound 2" singer Kanye West have had a rocky relationship since he interrupted her acceptance speech at the 2009 VMA's. Kanye apologized and the two seemed friendly after that incident.
Since then, Kanye released his 2016 hit song "Famous" which features the catchy lyric "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. I made that bi*** famous." Taylor's die-hard fans swiftly came to her defense and attacked Kanye on social media. Taylor released a statement saying she never gave Kanye her blessing to use her name in the song.
Kim Kardashian Defends Husband With Receipts
After relentless digs at his character, Kanye's wife Kim Kardashian released footage of the phone call between Kanye and Kim while he was making the song to which Taylor can clearly be heard saying "If people ask me about it, I think it would be great for me to be like, ‘Look, he called me and told me the line before it came out. Like, joke’s on you guys, we’re fine." Taylor's impressive PR team changed the story to be focused on the fact that he used the word "bitch" when referring to Taylor.
Years went by without issue, perhaps with a few indirect lyrical digs at each other. Until now, Taylor Swift's publicist posted the full footage of the Kanye and Taylor phone call that Taylor originally denied happened. Not much more was shown, except that Kanye did not mention the word "bitch", yet the main point of the lyric, the *ahem* sex part was told to Taylor. Taylor doubled down on this, even posting on Instagram saying she had been "framed" and "illegally recorded".
Kim let her frustrations fly on twitter:
.@taylorswift13 has chosen to reignite an old exchange - that at this point in time feels very self-serving given the suffering millions of real victims are facing right now.— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) March 24, 2020
I didn't feel the need to comment a few days ago, and I'm actually really embarrassed and mortified to be doing it right now, but because she continues to speak on it, I feel I'm left without a choice but to respond because she is actually lying.— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) March 24, 2020
Kim added "Kanye as an artist has every right to document his musical journey and process, just like she recently did through her documentary" and that "the call between the two of them would have remained private or would have gone in the trash had she not lied & forced me to defend him."
She didn't stop there:
"declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message."— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) March 24, 2020
The lie was never about the word bitch, It was always whether there was a call or not and the tone of the conversation.
This will be the last time I speak on this because honestly, nobody cares.— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) March 24, 2020
Sorry to bore you all with this. I know you are all dealing with more serious and important matters.
Kim was fired up! She is Kanye's first line of defense, and boy does she come through for him!
Although it is creating tension, the publicity may be a blessing for the both of them, as Taylor has many musical projects including her award winning film Miss Americana and is touring for her latest album and Kim has her families newest season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians coming out this week.
