Kim Kardashian noemt Taylor Swift een leugenaar in nieuw interview
De relatie tussen het Kanye-kamp en het Taylor-kamp is de afgelopen zeven jaar al een beetje moeilijk. Toen ze het vorig jaar eindelijk goed hadden gemaakt en zelfs vrienden leken te zijn, waren we dan ook best opgelucht. Alles viel echter weer in duigen toen Kanye begin dit jaar zijn nummer Famous uitbracht, met niet al te vleiende lyrics over Taylor Swift: “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex…Why? I made that bitch famous.”
Taylor claimt dat ze er niets van wist en was in haar Grammy speech ook erg duidelijk over het feit dat ze er niet zo van gediend was dat Kanye credit probeert te claimen voor haar succes. Nu zegt Kim dat het allemaal één grote poppenkast is:
“She totally approved that. She totally knew that that was coming out. She wanted to all of a sudden act like she didn’t. I swear, my husband gets so much shit for things [when] he really was doing proper protocol and even called to get it approved. What rapper would call a girl that he was rapping a line about to get approval?”
Ze zegt ook dat er een opname is gemaakt van het telefoongesprek, omdat Kanye zichzelf graag te allen tijden filmt in de studio (why are we not surprised?). “[There’s] maybe an attorney’s letter she sent saying, ‘Don’t ever let that footage come out of me saying that. Destroy it.’”, aldus Kim.
[Taylor] totally gave the okay. Rick Rubin was there. So many respected people in the music business heard that [conversation] and knew. I mean, he’s called me a bitch in his songs. That’s just, like, what they say. I never once think, [gasping] ‘What a derogatory word! How dare he?’ Not in a million years. I don’t know why she just, you know, flipped all of a sudden.… It was funny because [on the call with Kanye, Taylor] said, ‘When I get on the Grammy red carpet, all the media is going to think that I’m so against this, and I’ll just laugh and say, ‘The joke’s on you, guys. I was in on it the whole time.’ And I’m like, wait, but [in] your Grammy speech, you completely dissed my husband just to play the victim again.”
Zou het? Taylor’s management laat in een verklaring weten dat Kim’s verhaal onzin is:
“Taylor does not hold anything against Kim Kardashian as she recognizes the pressure Kim must be under and that she is only repeating what she has been told by Kanye West. However, that does not change the fact that much of what Kim is saying is incorrect. Kanye West and Taylor only spoke once on the phone while she was on vacation with her family in January of 2016 and they have never spoken since. Taylor has never denied that conversation took place. It was on that phone call that Kanye West also asked her to release the song on her Twitter account, which she declined to do. Kanye West never told Taylor he was going to use the term ‘that bitch’ in referencing her. A song cannot be approved if it was never heard. Kanye West never played the song for Taylor Swift. Taylor heard it for the first time when everyone else did and was humiliated. Kim Kardashian’s claim that Taylor and her team were aware of being recorded is not true, and Taylor cannot understand why Kanye West, and now Kim Kardashian, will not just leave her alone.”
Wat een drama! Wie geloof jij in dit verhaal?
