Taylor Swift is reportedly angry with Kanye West for dissing her in his new song “Famous.” An alleged feud between Swift and West began after Kim Kardashian’s husband threw shade at the “Bad Blood” singer by stating that he made her famous.
According to Hollywood Life, there are speculations that Swift may release a diss track for West following the beef. During his Yeezy Season 3 fashion show at New York Fashion Week Thursday, West rapped about Swift saying: “I feel like me and Taylor Swift might still have sex, I made that b---- famous.” The lines are from West’s song “Famous” from his seventh album “The Life of Pablo.”
In 2009, during the MTV Video Music Awards, West stormed the stage just after the first award, for Best Female Video, was presented to Swift. He cut the singer off, grabbed the mic and protested in support of Beyoncé.
“She had things relatively shut down after the tour to relax and just have quality time with Calvin, care for her Mom and hang with her cats but with the Grammy Awards and Kanye dropping his shade on her it has awoken the beast so to speak and she is now in full writing mode,” a source told Hollywood Life. “It comforts her to create music in times like this and now Taylor Swift fans can thank Kanye for getting her motivated again sooner than she expected to write more music.”
Another source told Hollywood Life that Swift was “appalled and horrified that Kanye would say something like that on a record about her. She’s convinced he only dropped her name in his lyrics because it would gain the attention he wants to sell records.”
TMZ earlier reported that West called Swift late last month for approval to use her name and certain lyrics in his song “Famous.” He also reportedly said that the reference was a joke and he wanted to make sure she wouldn’t be upset.
However, Gossip Cop cited a representative of Swift as saying that West made no such calls to the 26-year-old singer.
“Kanye did not call for approval,” the representative said, adding that West wanted Swift to put a link to the song “Famous” on her Twitter account, but “she declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message.”
The representative also reportedly said that Swift “was never made aware of the actual lyrics” of the song.
