Kim Kardashian Says Taylor Swift Knew About Kanye West's 'Famous' Dig & Approved It
Here’s what the 35-year-old reality star had to share with the mag:
On Taylor Swift knowing about Kanye West‘s song Famous and the conversation being filmed: “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 sh– 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?…Rick Rubin was there. So many respected people in the music business heard that [conversation] and knew. I mean, he’s called me a b—h in 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.”
On if they were in touch after: “No. Maybe an attorney’s letter she sent saying, ‘Don’t ever let that footage come out of me saying that. Destroy it.’”
On her brother Rob and Blac Chyna: “We’re all on board. We definitely see that my brother is happy and getting healthy, and whatever gets him to that place, you know, we’re happy for him. Chyna’s a sweet girl, and I think we all have so many things going on in our lives that we just want my brother to be happy. Has there been so many crazy things that happened? Yes. Is the whole situation, you know, just…? I think people want to feel like we’re all beefing and have this crazy fight, and we’re really not. I think the drama naturally follows.”
On looking through the Louis Vuitton garment bag that supposedly had the O.J. Simpson murder weapon in it: “The news was like, ‘Where is this Louis Vuitton bag?’ And I’m like, ‘Oh, it’s upstairs.’…[There were] just toiletries and clothes and golf clothes [in it]. Just random stuff. I’m pretty sure it’s, like, still in––probably in my dad’s storage.”
