“For all my southside n**as that know me best, I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that b**ch famous.” This line has stirred up a lot of controversy since appearing on Kanye West’s “Famous,” and has caused a he said/she said among Taylor Swift and Kanye West. Taylor said that she didn’t approve of the line, but Kanye said she knew the whole time. Swift took jabs at West in her Grammy speech and Kanye was once again painted as the bad guy.
Kanye’s wife, Kim Kardashian-West defended her husband in a recent GQ interview saying that Taylor did approve the line and said that Rick Rubin was a witness. No one knew that she actually had a video for proof. After Sunday’s episode of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” Kim posted the conversation of Kanye and Taylor’s phone call. She discussed the convo on the episode after tweeting about Sunday being “National Snake Day” on twitter. Here’s the transcrip courtsey of The FADER.
Kanye West: OK, dope. You still got the Nashville number?
Taylor Swift: I still have the nashville area code but i had to change it…
Kanye: For all my south side n****s that know me best, feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Taylor: I’m like this close to overexposure.
Kanye: Oh well this one is, uh — I think this is a really cool thing to have
Taylor: I know! I mean it’s like a compliment kind of.
Kanye: What I give a fuck about is just you as a person, and as a friend.
Taylor: That’s sweet.
Kanye: I want things that make you feel good. I don’t wanna do rap that makes people feel bad.
Taylor: Um, ya. I mean, go with whatever line you think is better. It’s obviously very tongue in cheek either way. And I really appreciate you telling me about it, that’s really nice!
Kanye: Yea. I just felt I had a responsibility to you as a friend. I mean, thanks for being so cool about it. Taylor: Aw, thanks! Yeah I really appreciate it. Like, the heads up is so nice!
Taylor: …things without like even asking or seeing if I’d be OK with it. And I just really appreciate it. I never would’ve expect you to tell me about a line in your song.
Taylor: And then the flowers that you sent me, I Instagrammed a picture of them and it’s the most Instagram likes I’ve ever gotten. It was like 2.7…
Kanye: Relationships are more important than punchlines, you know.
Taylor: Yeah. I mean, I don’t think anybody would listen to that and be like, Oh, that’s a real diss. Like, she must be crying about…
Taylor: You gotta tell the story the way that it happened to you and the way you experienced it. Like you obviously didn’t know who I was before that.
Taylor: It doesn’t matter if I sold 7 million of that album before you did that, which is what happened. You didn’t know who I was before that.
Taylor: … that I can make these things happen and I have the ideas to do it and I create these things and concepts. And, like, I’m always gonna respect you.
Taylor: And I’m really glad you had the respect to call me that and tell me that as a friend, about the song. It’s just a really cool thing to do, and a really good show of friendship. So thank you.
Kanye: Thank you too.
Taylor: And you know, if people ask me about it, I think it would be great for me to be like, Look, he called me and told me about the line before it came out. Like, joke’s on you guys, we’re fine.
Taylor: You guys wanna call this a feud, you wanna call this throwing shade. But right after the song comes out I’m gonna be on a Grammy red carpet and they’re gonna ask me about it and I’m gonna be like, he called me.
Taylor: …awesome that you’re so outspoken and it’s gonna be like, Yea, she does, it made her famous! It’s more provocative to say, Might still have sex.
Taylor: …it’s not. It doesn’t matter to me. there’s not one that hurts my feelings and one that doesn’t.
Taylor Swift responded to the video of her phone call with Kanye West. “Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me ‘that bitch’ in his song,” she wrote. “It doesn’t exist because it never happened.”
“I wanted us to have a friendly relationship,” Taylor stated. “He promised to play the song for me, but he never did.”
