Kim Kardashian Claims Taylor Swift Approved Kanye's 'Famous' Diss


(Radio.com) Kim Kardashian claims there's video evidence Taylor Swift approved Kanye West's controversial line about her in "Famous." On the track, which appears on The Life of Pablo, Kanye raps, 'I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that b-- famous."

When the song was released and inevitably drew people's criticism, Kanye defended it by saying Taylor had given him permission over the phone. Taylor's camp, however, denied that she'd ever done any such thing.

Speaking with GQ for their new issue, Kim says how a videographer commissioned to follow her husband around while he worked on his music (for a possible documentary down the road) caught the phone call Kanye made to Taylor. 'She totally approved that," Kim says. 'She totally knew that that was coming out. She wanted to all of a sudden act like she didn't. I swear, my husband gets so much sh- for things [when] he really was doing proper protocol and even called to get it approved."

Kim defends his honor, saying he went above and beyond accommodating Taylor when most people in the industry wouldn't have bothered. 'What rapper would call a girl that he was rapping a line about to get approval?" she asks.

Kim continues about the infamous phone call. "Rick Rubin was there," she recounts. "So many respected people in the music business heard that [conversation] and knew. I mean, he's called me a b-- in his songs. That's just, like, what they say. I never once think, [gasping] 'What a derogatory word! How dare he?' Not in a million years. I don't know why she just, you know, flipped all of a sudden.' It was funny because [on the phone, Taylor] 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.' And I'm like, wait, but [in] your Grammy speech, you completely dissed my husband just to play the victim again."
