We knew something was about to go DOWN when Kim took to Twitter today with a ~shady~ message, and given her vows to shut down anybody trying to tear hubby Kanye West down, we just had a feeling we knew who she was referring to. And damn, did she just deliver the ULTIMATE CLAP BACK.

No, really, you’re gonna want to do this rn.
When rumors first emerged that Taylor had known about—and even approved of—those controversial lyrics in “Famous,” they were pretty hard to believe. With Taylor’s team denying that any such approval call took place, and the singer’s entire squad rallying against Kanye, it was hard to imagine Tay giving the okay on lyrics suggesting she and Kanye “might still have sex,” and that he “made that bitch famous.” Even when Kim revealed the phone call had been recorded, we had our doubts—if there was hard evidence of the call, why wouldn’t Kanye release it and settle the drama once and for all?
As we know, Kim has had enough of Taylor, and she took matters into her own hands when she released the very telling video on her Snapchat. In it, Kanye reads lyrics from the song to Taylor while she’s on speakerphone, to which Taylor replies, “I mean, it’s like a compliment, kinda!” He then goes on to explain, “What I give a fuck about is you as a person, and as a friend. I want things that make you feel good—I don’t wanna do rap that makes people feel bad.” Taylor then says, “Go with whatever line works better.” During the call, Taylor also emphasizes that she appreciates Kanye calling her about the song. “That’s really nice,” she is heard saying.
But no, the craziness doesn’t end there. She then went on to say, practically word for word, what Kim claimed in GQ.
“If people ask me about it, I think it would be great for me to be like, ‘They called me and told me about the line before it came out. Joke’s on you guys, we’re fine,'” she says. “You guys want to call this a feud, you want to call this throwing shade but right before this song comes out I’m going to be on the Grammy red carpet and I’m going to be like, ‘He called me!'” This is badddddd.

Omg. OMG. What is even happening right now? Taylor hasn’t weighed in yet—but we’re waiting on the edges of our seats to hear what she has to say about this. In the meantime, our heads are spinning.
