This could get ugly.
In a new interview with GQ magazine, which she graced the cover of nude, Kim Kardashian has alleged Taylor Swift seriously mislead us in her Grammy’s speech.
Shortly after Kanye West released the now hit song, Famous, which opens with the lyrics, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that bitch famous,” Swift appeared to challenge the singer in her Grammy award acceptance speech, implying she was a victim in West’s arguably inappropriate lyrics.
“I want to say to all the young women out there, there are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame. But if you just focus on the work and you don’t let those people sidetrack you, someday, when you get where you are going, you will look around and you will know that it was you and the people who love you who put you there.”
But what if West had in fact asked Swift for permission to use the lyrics in the first place? That’s exactly what Kim argues happened, expressing her disappointment in the 26 year-old and defending her husband.
“She totally knew that [Famous] was coming out. She wanted to all of a sudden act like she didn’t. I swear, my husband gets so much s–t for things [when] he really was doing proper protocol and even called to get it approved… What rapper would call a girl that he was rapping a line about to get approval?”
Saying this is one thing, but the KUWTK star says she’s got proof to back her claim up.
“So many respected people in the music business heard that [conversation] and knew… I don’t know why she just, you know, flipped all of a sudden…It was funny because [on the call] she said, “When I get on the Grammy red carpet, all the media is going to think that I’m so against this, and I’ll just laugh and say, ‘The joke’s on you, guys. I was in on it the whole time.'””
Adding to the drama, there are also rumors that Kimye have a video recording of the conversation, which Swift is now trying to have destroyed through her attorney.
Whether it’s real, or will ever be released, remains to be seen, but Kim’s allegations are enough to bring Swift’s integrity into question. After all, she’s best known for being a scandal-free American sweetheart, so a cunning PR move like this would reveal a whole new side to the singer.
We have a feeling the West/Swift rift is not over yet, only now it involves Kim as well, and ain’t nobody mess with the selfie queen.
