Kim Kardashian is shedding light on a conversation Taylor Swift and Kanye West had regarding a controversial line in West's song "Famous."
In a series of Snapchats posted Sunday evening, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star allowed fans to get a glimpse into portions of the phone call exchanged by the music performers.
"For all my Southside n-----s that know me best / I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex," Kanye said when reading a portion of the lyrics to the song.
Kanye is also overheard saying that he doesn't "want to do rap that makes people feel bad."
"Umm, yeah go with whatever line you think is better," Swift replied. "It's obviously very tongue in cheek either way. And I really appreciate you telling me about it, that's really nice."
"I really appreciate it, the heads up is so nice," Swift continued. "Even asking or seeing if I would be okay with it and I really appreciate it. I would never expect you to like tell me about a line in one of your songs."
Swift goes on to also thank West for the flowers he sent her that were later posted onto her Instagram page.
"Relationships are more important than punch lines," West said.
"I don't think anyone would listen to that and think that's a real diss, like she must be crying. You've gotta tell the story the way that it happened to you and the way that you experienced it," Swift said on the recordings. "You honestly didn't know who I was before that. It doesn't matter that I sold seven million of that album before you did that, which is what happened, you didn't know who I was before that. It's fine."
Speculation regarding how much was communicated between the two before the release of "Famous" has gone on since the album dropped.
Back in February, Swift's rep said in a statement to E! News that "Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single 'Famous' on her Twitter account. She declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message. Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, 'I made that b---h famous.'"
Kim has yet to post video or audio of Taylor approving the lyrics "I made that b---ch famous."
