The Taylor Swift, Kim Kardashian, and Kanye West feud has reached new heights. Swift’s camp fired back, releasing a statement to combat Kim’s allegations of Taylor’s approval of a line in Kanye West’s latest track “Famous,” according to CNN. The song is off the rapper’s Life of Pablo album, and contains the lyrics, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex…Why? I made that b—-h famous.” West said he spoke with Taylor in advance, saying she “thought it was funny and gave her blessings.”
The statement made by Taylor’s camp confirms Taylor and Kanye spoke on the phone once. Kanye asked Taylor to release the song on her Twitter account and Swift declined.
“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 b—-h famous.’ “
I did not diss Taylor Swift and I’ve never dissed her…

Kardashian told the GQ magazine that Swift “approved” the song and was pretending to be offended when it came out in February.
“She totally approved that,” Kardashian said in the article. “She totally knew that that was coming out. She wanted to all of a sudden [to] act like she didn’t.”
West hosted an episode of SNL soon after and was recorded backstage calling Swift a “fake a**,” according to CNN.
“Taylor does not hold anything against Kim Kardashian, as she recognizes the pressure Kim must be under and that she is only repeating what she has been told by Kanye West…However, that does not change the fact that much of what Kim is saying is incorrect. Kanye West and Taylor only spoke once on the phone while she was on vacation with her family in January of 2016 and they have never spoken since. Taylor has never denied that conversation took place.”
Taylor and Kanye’s beef dates back to MTV’s 2009 Video Music Awards, when the rapper interrupted the young Country singer-songwriter during her acceptance speech. This moment went viral and went on to be parodied many times, including by Kanye himself.
“It was on that phone call that Kanye West also asked her to release the song on her Twitter account, which she declined to do. Kanye West never told Taylor he was going to use the term ‘that b**ch’ in referencing her. A song cannot be approved if it was never heard. Kanye West never played the song for Taylor Swift. Taylor heard it for the first time when everyone else did and was humiliated. Kim Kardashian’s claim that Taylor and her team were aware [of the lyrics] is not true, and Taylor cannot understand why Kanye West, and now Kim Kardashian, will not just leave her alone.”

Taylor, who has over 81 million followers on Instagram, has deleted any trace of deejay Calvin Harris from her account. Calvin has done the same.
The insider tells Us Weekly Calvin was surprised to see the photos.
“Calvin was surprised to see the photos and that she had moved on so quickly…That was fast! It was surprising to him but he just wants to move on. He’s a really good guy.”
Days after Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris’ split, Nelly Furtado released a raw, acoustic cover of Calvin’s 2011 hit, “Feel So Close” on Spotify. The same music streaming service Taylor Swift pulled her music from. Taylor did not feel they properly compensate their artist, according to Time.
Taylor Swift Slut Shamed And Amber Rose Defends
Two weeks after the news of Swift breaking up with Calvin Harris, 32, Taylor has again become the victim of online slut shaming after she was spotted canoodling with actor Tom Hiddleston on a Rhode Island beach. Amber Rose, 32, was interviewed by the Daily Beast to promote her upcoming VH1 talk show, and had a definitive opinion on Taylor and her new man.
“And I feel like guys do that all the time—they break up and the next day they’re with another girl and nobody really says anything. But with Taylor it’s, you know what, I’m done with Calvin [Harris] and it didn’t work out, so on to the next. It is because it’s unheard of, and she’s acting very ‘slutty’ and for some reason needs time to ‘let her p—-y rest.’ That’s how people look at it, and it’s just like, h*** no! If I’m done, why do I have to sit in the house and be lonely?”
Taylor has told Vogue she was “slaughtered” for dating in general which stopped her from dating for 2-and-a-half years.
“You know, I went out on a normal amount of dates in my early 20s, and I got absolutely slaughtered for it,” she told Vogue. “And it took a lot of hard work and altering my decision-making. I didn’t date for two and a half years. Should I have had to do that? No.”
What do you think of the bad blood between Taylor Swift, Kim Kardashian and her husband Kanye West? Should the Kardashian-West clan back off?
