Taylor Swift & Kanye West's 'Famous' Phone Call - Full Transcript

Taylor Swift and Kanye West had a phone call last year about the lyrics in his song “Famous” and now Kim Kardashian has leaked a video recording of the conversation.

The 35-year-old reality star took to her Snapchat account on Sunday night (July 17) to release a series of videos that added up to over three minutes of content.

Taylor has since released a statement slamming the Wests for “character assassination” and said that she never knew about the “bitch” lyric, which is what she had an issue with in the first place.

You can read a transcript of the phone call after the cut and watch the video below!

Kanye West: “You still got the Nashville number?”

Taylor Swift: “I still have the Nashville umm area code, but they had to change it.”

KW (reading lyric from “Famous”): “To all my southside n—-s that know me best, I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex.”

TS: “I’m like this close to overexposure.”

KW: “Oh, well this I think this a really cool thing to have.”

TS: “I know, I mean it’s like a compliment, kind of.”

KW: “All I give a f–k about is you as a person and as a friend.”

TS: “That’s sweet.”

KW: “I want things that make you feel good. I don’t want to do rap that makes people feel bad.”

TS: “Umm, yeah I mean go with whatever line you think is better. It’s obviously very tongue in cheek either way. And I really appreciate you telling me about it, that’s really nice.”

KW: “Oh yeah, I just had a responsibility to you as a friend you know, and I mean thanks for being so cool about it.”

TS: “Aw thanks. Um yeah I really appreciate it, like the heads up is so nice… [inaudible moment] even asking or seeing if I would be okay with it and I just really appreciate it. Like I would never expect you to like tell me about a line in one of your songs.”

KW: “It’s pretty crazy.”

TS: “And then the flowers that you sent me, I like Instagrammed a picture of them and it’s like the most Instagram likes I’ve ever gotten. It was like 2.7 [million].”

KW: “Relationships are more important than punch lines, ya know?”

TS: “I don’t think anyone would listen to that and be like that’s a real diss, like she must be crying. You’ve gotta tell the story the way that it happened to you and the way that you experienced it. You honestly didn’t know who I was before that. It doesn’t matter that I sold 7 million of that album before you did that which is what happened, you didn’t know who I was before that. It’s fine.”

New video starts playing…

TS: “I might be in debt, but I can make these things happen. I have the ideas to do it and I create these things and concepts. I’m always going to respect you. I’m really glad that you have the respect to call me and tell me that as a friend about the song. It’s a really cool thing to do and a really good show of friendship so thank you.”

KW: “Thank you, too.”

TS: “And you know, 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. Jokes on you guys, We’re fine.’ You guys want to call this a feud; you want to call this throwing shade but right after the song comes out I’m going to be on a Grammys red carpet and they’re going to ask me about it and I’ll be like, ‘He called me.’ It’s awesome that you’re so outspoken about this and be like, ‘Yeah, she does. It made her famous.’ Its more provocative to say ‘might still have sex.’ It’s doesn’t matter to me. There’s not like one line that hurts my feelings and one that doesn’t.”
