On Thursday night, Kanye debuted his long-awaited album, The Life of Pablo, during the showcase of his "Yeezy 3" fashion line in Madison Square Garden. Industry legends Veronica Webb and Naomi Campbell were featured models, reportedly leading nearly 1,000 models in attendance at a showcase that drew the eyes of 20 million viewers according to a Tidal representative.
However, what remains the talk of the Twitter-verse the day after is his song, "Famous".
His lyric, "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ I made that b---h famous", garnered overwhelmingly negative responses from fans and members of Swift's #SQUAD, including "Orange is the New Black" actress Ruby Rose and model Gigi Hadid.
Ruby Rose Tweeted, "Too many lines crossed. If I put myself in the shoes of the women he has hurt recently. Victims of Bill Cosby, The Slut shaming, Amber..."
Rose continued, "And now my dear friend Taylor.. Right before another huge moment for her.. Can I still support him and call myself a feminist? A friend? No."
Gigi chimed in Tweeting, "My attendance somewhere does not mean I agree with everything being said in the music playing there. My friends know of my loyalty."
Despite reports from Taylor Swift's camp denying Kanye reached out to Swift about the lyric, Ye contends that Swift not only knew about the lyric but gave him the idea. He tweeted that the idea stemmed from an earlier conversation between Ye, Swift and third person who's name he would not disclose where she supposedly said, "I can't be mad at Kanye because he made me famous."
