Taylor Swift Releases Statement About Kim Kardashian's 'Famous' Video Exposure: It's 'Character Assassination'

Taylor Swift has released a statement after Kim Kardashian released a video of her speaking to Kanye West, seemingly exposing her knowledge of the lyrics in his song “Famous.”

In the video, Kanye can not be heard telling Taylor about the lyric, “I made that b*tch famous,” and Taylor points that out in her statement.

“That moment when Kanye West secretly records your phone call, then Kim posts it on the Internet,” Taylor posted on her Instagram.

“Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me ‘that bitch’ in his song? It doesn’t exist because it never happened. You don’t get to control someone’s emotional response to being called ‘that bitch’ in front of the entire world. Of course I wanted to like the song. I wanted to believe Kanye when he told me that I would love the song. I wanted us to have a friendly relationship. He promised to play the song for me, but he never did. While I wanted to be supportive of Kanye on the phone call, you cannot ‘approve’ a song you haven’t heard. Being falsely painted as a liar when I was never given the full story or played any part of the song is character assassination. I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative, one that I have never asked to be a part of, since 2009,” Taylor wrote.

    Taylor playing the victim AGAIN… This hoe is really something else

    hahahahaha

    OK I get that the Bitch line probably did upset her, but why is she ignoring the other stuff that she/ her PR team lied about. They said he never asked permission, but he clearly did. They said she warned him about the song having a strong misogynistic message, but she seemed to enjoy it, saying that the song is a complement and told him to write from his perspective. And it’s obviously Taylor wrote this long response a while ago, see where it says “search” in the top left?

    Just like Kim K to think saying yes to one thing means yes to everything. People aren’t that dumb. Taylor consented to the partial lyrics that were read to her. Doesnt mean she consented to being called a b*tch. saying yes to a kiss doesn’t mean consenting to being violated in other ways. This petty and premature “take down” video shows the simplicity of her thought process.

  • Carmex

    Am I the only one thinking this is all planned out by Taylor, Kim and Kanye and at the VMAs they will all make up? Like Taylor and Nicki did last year after their Twitter “fight”. Or am I just overthinking it?

  • Dory

    don’t you remember Kim priming this awhile ago by saying she thinks it’s normal that Kanye calls her a B*tch? Normalizing Kanye’s references so his reference to Taylor wouldn’t appear as offensive. Speaks volumes if Kanye can’t deal with his own mistakes and needs his wife to set up a new narrative. Taylor was a legit victim when Kanye hijacked her award moment. Now, who really knows what happened about the Famous lyrics. But, what I see is the attempt of Kim to rehabilitate her husband’s image. It takes real change and authenticity to do that, not a quick high school snapchat.

  • Brink

    Sweet dancing Jesus its on now! Whores, tramps, and sluts against bitches, models, and tweens oh my.

  • Dory

    yes to one thing doesn’t mean free reign. Duh

  • piste_five

    Stfu

  • Dory

    are you a Kim PR team member? use your brain.

  • Zav

    that would be weird

  • Carmex

    It’s called Hollyweird for a reason.

  • Dory

    MILF is only acknowledgement that you APPEAR to have your sh*t together, but being a mother didn’t seem to give you any common sense. You’re supposed to set good examples, yet you think releasing a snap of something that disproves your point is ridiculous. You must really think nothing of your followers. we aren’t dumb.

  • Koos

    why bother a sec.?

  • Dory

    I am certain you are working for Kim lol no one made Kanye rage on stage.

  • F Mellark

    Taylor is so fake it hurts my eyes. Seriously, you suck taylor!

  • Laura Champlain

    You don’t know what the hell your talking about, Kayne & Kim are liars & so jelaous of Taylor being more famous then them,she should sue their a$$es off!

  • Laura Champlain

    Please, she never would of agreed to his calling her names or saying he made her famous he’s so jealous of her, it’s incredible. I wouldn’t trust that loser over anything he says because he’s a user and a liar!

  • LOL Blue

    but I didn’t say what he said, i pointed out what she said and what her PR team said, and they are not the same.

  • devvv

    Imagine if all of Taylor’s exes reacted this way about unapproved lyrics. She’s made a career out of taking obvious shots at others in songs. Do you think she called Joe Jonas, John Mayer, or Katy Perry before she released songs about them?

  • piste_five

    Lol

  • Madsxx

    They’re all so damn annoying.

  • piste_five

    And I am certain you’re working for Taylor… Get outta here with that bs

    Kim was really becoming more mature…until this. An entire family that is a heard of lemmings. the video shows Taylor’s version is truth.

    Just like you. Want a cookie?

  • piste_five

    Do you not know why Kim released the tape???? Because your mighty god Taylor swift said she never knew the song existed & that she didn’t approve but the tapes clearly shows that she’s a liar… And who tf would get offended by being a called bitch these days??? And she’s ok with him saying he had sex with her….. Oh please get a fucking grip. Suck Taylor’s pussy all you want and I am not a kimye fan but the truth has been revealed

  • Juan Cocco

    IM LIVING!!!! DRAG THAT WHITE DEVIL!!!!!!!!! LYING HO!!!!! LMFAOOOOO YASSS KIM I LITERALLY LOVE U GIRL

  • Donell

    but why would she consent to Kanye saying they might still have sex? but get mad about being called a bitch?

  • Catiana Aristide

    Dude, I’m so sick of Swifties fans defending her. “Oh poor me, I’m the victim and everyone is out to get me” bullshit. Calvin call her out on her shit (which is funny because she could response to them but yet doesn’t response to what Calvin tweeted.) and now Kimye are doing too. She is Regina George to the tea.

  • dalovelee

    She needs to give it up. I’m almost of the mindset to think she just loves going back and forth with Kanye because she really is attracted to him. You would think with her current fiasco with Harris she’d say Peace Out. Is this all for imbecile fans who are keeping this sh*t alive online for her. Calvin Harris is right she’s always looking to bury someone and these artist are not afraid to push back. Good for Kim Kardashian. Taylor knows who Kanye is so did she think he’d make something not controversial???

  • Anna

    It’s her PR team acting like her fans to save face lol Even Jennifer Lawrence saw right through this bitch’s facade and didn’t join her so called “girl squad”. She even said in an interview she could see right through people who were using her as a friend for their career. Everything about this girl is fake. A lot of us knew this but now I hope more people realizes what a fake she is. She made albums and songs off of her ex’s, never asked for their permission and ruined their image by turning everyone against them by playing the victim. It’s about time she got a taste of her own medicine.

  • Val

    So she can sing ‘She’s better known for the things that she does on the mattress’ to camilla belle, but she can’t be called a b*tch???

  • 🐺Husky_Star⭐️

    Exactly. I was 100% on her side about this. The recording makes me doubt things a little. Her strong response to the song made it seem like he hit her with it left field. The truth is, he didn’t surprise her. He did seem to care about how she felt. She gave him permission to be free with his feelings…but didn’t like what he said. I’m not as sold as I was before.

  • lala mood

    I cannot stand taylor swift or her music, but the fact that kim and kanye go to these lengths to make headlines is petty and gross. This whole feud is over a beyonce video from 2009. For god sakes let it go and be about the music, beyonce sure as hell did.

  • 🐺Husky_Star⭐️

    Taylor had to back down from some of the stuff previously said. Her PR team initially said he did not ask permission and she knew NOTHING about this song.

  • lala mood

    Also taylor maybe said “regina george” which i wholeheartedly believe, but who gives a shit because at the end of the day she is making music for billions of fans that are happy with her songs. The same cannot be said for anything kim does, and if you all are siding with the kumdashians then that is pathetic.

  • SensateTrash

    No it ain’t. It’s because taylor lied over a song.
