Kanye West dropped his controversial new video “Famous” live on Saturday night. The video included a nude wax version of Taylor Swift, which has left the pop star “furious,” and her new boyfriend feeling the same way.
The video has angered an enormous amount of Taylor Swift’s fans, especially since she clearly didn’t agree to have her likeness to be used in a vulgar manner. It has become clear that West didn’t even bother to ask for Swift’s permission. Like many, Tom Hiddleston is not a huge fan of Kanye West since he dropped the video, an alleged insider told Hollywood Life.
“Tom has been wonderful during all this [‘Famous’ drama]. Taylor was concerned about Kanye’s video the past week, but he’s really kept her mind off of it and had her focus on happy things. He’s been her knight in shining armor lifting her spirits. Tom is probably more upset than Taylor if that’s possible. He thinks Kanye is classless.”
It’s obvious why Hiddleston, 35, would be upset. The video shows a nude version of Swift, 26, sleeping next in between naked versions of Kanye West and Chris Brown. “Famous” is also the same song in which West raps, “I think me and Taylor might still have sex/I made that b**** famous.”
Tom isn’t too happy with the fact that Kanye thinks it’s okay to show off his naked girlfriend in his music video. Although Tom and Taylor have only been dating for two weeks, another insider told Hollywood Life that Tom already feels protective of his new love and feels the need to defend her honor.
“Tom’s really been her shoulder to lean on, showering her with positivity and kind words. Tom has been really supportive by encouraging her not to get caught up in the drama and to just stay focused on the time they have together before he heads to Australia to start production on his new film [Thor: Ragnarök].”
It must be working because the hot new couple have been walking on the beach and holding hands yet again in Suffolk shortly after Swift flew around the world to meet his mom.

Taylor was seen wearing a white V-neck sweater with dark purple skinny jeans and black rain boots. Meanwhile, Tom wore a white long-sleeve shirt with dark jeans and black sneakers. The beach must be a special place for the couple since they were spotted kissing for the first time on the beach in Rhode Island.
After Swift was understandably upset about how her image was portrayed in West’s new music video, Hiddleston has swept in like a knight in shining armor and has kept her mind off of the controversy.
“Taylor was concerned about Kanye’s video the past week, but he’s really kept her mind off of it and had her focus on happy things. He’s been her knight in shining armour lifting her spirits.”
And now an interview about Hiddleston speaking out about his relationship with the singer has been making the rounds on social media. Some crafty and witty fan created an audio clip of Hiddleston gushing over Swift from old audio clips. Hiddleston’s rep has confirmed to Metro that his alleged interview with the Belgium’s Qmusic radio show from Thursday morning, June 23 is, in fact, fake.
Neither star has spoken out about their relationship, despite recent reports that have said otherwise. Now, let us know your thoughts. What do you think of Kanye West’s new music video? Do you think he should apologize to Taylor Swift? Or, do you think she should sue? And what are your thoughts on Tom Hiddleston looking out for her?
