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

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!

Taylor Swift & Kanye West’s ‘Famous’ Phone Call

Click inside to read the full transcript of the phone call…

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.”

    So he didn’t let her know he decided to call her a b*tch…..Glad I’m not famous.

  • Ivona D.

    It seems from the context that she does know “I made that bitch famous” lyric.

  • Aoedele

    Taylor playing the victim…again. Gotta love that white privilege.

  • zombie_hands

    the tape is choppy….like it was edited to make TS look bad….

  • sydney jane

    This makes absolutely no sense. Only white people play victims? Plus, isn’t Kim white? Yeah, she is Armenian, but Armenians are considered white, just like Greeks, and Italians. And, you know good and well Kim checks off the White box when asked her about race lol.

  • sydney jane

    Then why did they edit it out of the tape? If they’re providing a full transcript, as they say, where’s the part where he told her he made the “bitch” famous? I’m not trying to defend Taylor, but the fact that they left some parts out is suspicious.

  • Dory

    There isn’t a victim. Just truth

  • plez

    Transcript of an edited tape. Unlike what is posted, the audio is that a seamless conversation. There are stop and go where it seems parts of the conversation has not be recorded or conveniently taken out.

  • daas

    Taylor has been fake with Millions people

  • daas

    Glad that Kanye & Kim exposed Taylor

  • Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    She planned her victim role for Grammy speech during this call in her head:

    I’m going to be on a Grammys and use your line MADE HER FAMOUS, (not words “THIS BITCH”) and say THERE IS SOME MAN WILL STEAL YOUR FAME. I’m only woman who bla bla bla

    Grammy is all what matter to her. People? Use them.

    Grammy, Grammy, Grammy.

  • Madsxx

    I agree with Taylor playing the victim. But you trying to turn this into a race issue, isn’t necessary. Taylor is just a spoiled little snob. Which Kim and Kanye are just as bad. But they hold the cards in this situation. This isn’t a race issue though my friend.

  • laura

    Still, in this transcript they only talk about the “might still have sex”.
    No word about the “I made that bitch famous” line, which is what she disapproved. So I don’t really understand what people are talking about.
    This doesn’t prove she lied.

  • laura

    It only proves he committed a crime.

  • YupVideoFever

    They’re worth each other.

  • Sokanon567

    Totally agree. Where is that part. And did she really know she was being recorded. Because if not I would sue.

  • Jezza

    Taylor’s goody-goody image is being undone! Always though it was for show and as fake as her rack.

  • Wendy

    He clearly didn’t say it. If he would have they would have made sure it was on repeat or something.

  • Wendy

    Kim and Kanye are seriously getting to be insane. They need a rehab for addiction to being a celebrity or social media addiction or something.

  • Melissa Iris

    She could actually take him to court for this. You can’t leak a phone call that no one agreed to leak

  • CaptainLatrine

    TS: “…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.”

    She literally just approved ‘might have sex’ and talking about ‘made her famous’. The only word that wasn’t mentioned there was ‘bitch’, which she’s now pretending was what mattered to her. If you’re okay with someone talking about having sex with you and taking credit for your fame, I doubt the word bitch is going to matter much. She’s just trying to cover her ass now she’s been exposed.

    Originally she claimed to have never heard it and to have warned him about releasing a misogynistic song, which obviously never happened. At the Grammy’s she made out that it was about taking credit for her her fame, which she approved here. She’s a liar, plain and simple.
