Kim K exposes Taylor Swift: Part 2 – Recent Events

This is part two of Kim exposing Taylor. Part 1 was all about the history leading up to this event, which you can read here.

“Famous”

On July 1st, Kanye West released music video for his now infamous “Famous”. We all knew it was going to add fuel to the fire but no one anticipated that it’s a big volcano all by itself .The video looks like old school homemade VHSesque video, which begins with Kanye and Kim asleep in a bed and pans out to show naked wax-like figures of a number of high-profile individuals: George W Bush, Anna Wintour, Donald Trump, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Taylor Swift, Ray J, Amber Rose, Caitlyn Jenner and Bill Cosby.

You can see the video here( it has some graphic scenes, you’ve been warned).

Taylor’s camp was pretty quiet at the time, but Lena Dunham wrote an angry Facebook post about how we are obsessed with pop culture issues but ignoring real world problems. She further wrote, I’m sure that Bill Cosby doll being in the bed alongside Donald Trump is some kind of statement”, “I don’t have a hip cool reaction, because seeing a woman I love like Taylor Swift (fuck that one hurt to look at, I couldn’t look), a woman I admire like Rihanna or Anna, reduced to a pair of waxy breasts made by some special effects guy in the Valley, it makes me feel sad and unsafe and worried for the teenage girls who watch this and may not understand that grainy roving camera as the stuff of snuff films.”

Rightfully said. Although this was a work of art, even Kanye knew it was risqué and was ready for law suits. And we all waited with bated breath that who would get the ball rolling.

A few days past and the main parties involved were quite. But on July 18th Kim Kardashian starts teasing that her Twitter followers, cryptically telling them they should start following her on Snapchat. Ohh and they should have, because they dropped a huge bomb! She shared snaps of conversation between Kanye and Taylor where she approves the lyrics to the song even calling it a compliment. Some of the main excerpts of the conversation:

(Kanye West on the phone with Taylor Swift: “You still got the Nashville number?”

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

Kanye West reads the “Famous” lyric: “To all my southside n—-s that know me best, I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex.”

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

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

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

Kanye West: “All I give a f–k about is you as a person and as a friend, I want things that make you feel good.”

Taylor Swift: “That’s sweet.”)

(Taylor Swift: “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.”)

(Taylor Swift: 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.”)

You can see Kim’s snaps to hear the full conversation.

After this blew up, Taylor who has been quiet so far was not happy being painted a liar, went to Instagram and Twitter to say her piece. She never gave Kanye the permission to call her “that bitch”. She even said Kanye never played the song for her and that she wanted to be excluded from this narrative.

That moment when Kanye West secretly records your phone call, then Kim posts it on the Internet.

Then the internet split into two parts. One saying Taylor is mad because Kanye beat her at her own game and asking whether she consulted people when she wrote songs about them, albeit her songs weren’t as in your face as Kanye’s.

From here, this whole pop-battle went from a fight between two mean girls to a huge legal dilemma. All about that and the rest in part three.
