  • A video leaked that includes more footage of Kanye West’s call with Taylor Swift about his song “Famous.”
  • Some think it shows that Kim Kardashian and Kanye were lying about getting Taylor’s okay for the whole song....

I don’t know how you envisioned your day today, but it probably didn’t involve getting sucked back into Taylor Swift and Kanye West’s age-old feud over his hit song “Famous.” Well, guess what? It’s happening, people!

A new video has leaked online of the call that Kanye made to Taylor about the song before it came out, in which Kanye asks for Taylor’s permission/blessing to use her name. Now, this call is very fraught, ’cause while Taylor claims that Kanye told her nothing about the line “I made that bitch famous,” Kim and Kanye maintain that Taylor gave her approval of the line, and at the time, Kim even posted snippets of the call to her Snapchat. It was all very messy and 2016!

In the new extended video of the call, Kanye excitedly tells Taylor about the song and asks her about the line “I feel like Taylor Swift might owe me sex” (which turned into the line “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex”), which Taylor doesn’t object to but says, “I’m glad it’s not mean. I thought it was going to be like, ‘That stupid dumb bitch.’” Here’s the new video:

And while some people are claiming that this proves Kim and Kanye lied about getting Taylor’s okay for the whole song, the clip doesn’t show the whole conversation, so we really don’t know what happened during the rest of the call—it’s possible that Kanye went into the other parts of the song. However, it does show that some of what Kim posted on Snapchat a few years ago was from this part of the conversation and had nothing to do with the line “I made that bitch famous.”

So, in conclusion: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
