Did Taylor Swift Really Approve Kanye West’s Controversial Song?
With Kanye West, there’s not a dull moment or a dumb moment should I say?… We always wonder, what is the next controversy? What is the next tweet that will make the blogosphere laugh in the same direction? Iman wrote about West’s listening party and fashion show at Madison Square Garden on Thursday night, however the album has not been released, Why? I always refuse to apply any logic at anything that Kanye does.
‘The Life of Pablo’, yes it’s the new title, but who knows it may be called something else in a few hours, could well be released later today, but Kanye may have been distracted from the mastering process as he had to spend a lot of time on Twitter to defend himself. In one of the rap songs entitled ‘Famous’, he has this line ‘I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous’
Relax people, it’s a joke, but it made a few people mad, and Kanye tweeted a lot this morning:
‘I did not diss Taylor Swift and I’ve never dissed her…’
‘First thing is I’m an artist and as an artist I will express how I feel with no censorship’
‘2nd thing I asked my wife for her blessings and she was cool with it’
‘3rd thing I called Taylor and had a hour long convo with her about the line and she thought it was funny and gave her blessing’
‘4th Bitch is an endearing term in hip hop like the word Nigga’
‘5th thing I’m not even gone take credit for the idea… it’s actually something Taylor came up with …’
‘She was having dinner with one of our friends who’s name I will keep out of this and she told him, I can’t be mad at Kanye because he made me famous! #FACTS’
Well, when we know what fact means to Kanye… According to the New York Times and Vanity Fair, Taylor Swift’s brother posted a video on Instagram ‘that showed him throwing his Kanye-designed Yeezy sneakers in the trash’, and Tree Paine, a spokeswoman for Ms. Swift declared:
‘Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single ‘Famous’ on her Twitter account. She declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message. Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, ‘I made that [expletive] famous.’’
Typical case of Kanye and his conception of facts, which always seem to go in the way of his opinions?
