Taylor Swift Responds to the Tape

Here is the statement Taylor Swift’s camp released when Kim Kardashian told GQ there was a recording of her approving Kanye West’s song Famous.

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. 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 bitch” 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 being recorded is not true, and Taylor cannot understand why Kanye West, and now Kim Kardashian, will not just leave her alone.

The Sun later found out that a recording did exist and Taylor’s lawyers attempted to kill it by ordering Kanye to erase it.

Yo, I’m going to have to stop you right there, Taylor’s lawyers. You know Kanye has no chill, right?

Fast forward to Sunday when Kim released the recording on Snapchat proving without a doubt that Taylor knew about the song, gave her approval and even called it a “compliment, kind of.”

Taylor is now doing a little backtracking. She’s now saying the recording exists, but it wasn’t the recording she was talking about.

Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me ‘that bitch’ in his song? It doesn’t exist because it never happened. You don’t get to control someone’s emotional response to being called ‘that bitch’ in front of the entire world. Of course I wanted to like the song. I wanted to believe Kanye when he told me that I would love the song. I wanted us to have a friendly relationship. He promised to play the song for me, but he never did. While I wanted to be supportive of Kanye on the phone call, you cannot ‘approve’ a song you haven’t heard. Being falsely painted as a liar when I was never given the full story or played any part of the song is character assassination. I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative, one that I have never asked to be a part of, since 2009.

I think what she meant to say was, “Hey, you caught me in a lie so, um, can we please stop talking about it now? #kthanksbai” Naturally, Kim threw some shade her way.

Kim can fire off the lamest shots ever at this point and people would still clap for her. Even Jared from Subway is cringing at how badly Taylor’s image is imploding right now.
