Earlier this year, Swift had claimed the rapper never reached out for her permission to use lyrics about her on the song “Famous,” which features the line: “Me and Taylor might still have sex…I made that bitch famous.”
Swift also said it carried a “strong misogynistic message.”
But in a series of Snapchat videos, posted by Kanye’s wife, Kardashian, the alleged voice of the pop star can be heard telling West, “Go with whatever line you think is better,” she says, “It’s obviously very tongue in cheek either way. And I really appreciate you telling me about it, that’s really nice.”
West can be seen telling Swift he doesn’t “want to do rap that makes people feel bad.”
But Swift doesn’t seem to mind, saying: “I really appreciate it, the heads up is so nice. 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.”
She also thanked him for flowers he sent to her, which she later posted on Instagram.
This would conflict with what Swift had originally said through a spokesman after “The Life of Pablo,” Kanye’s new album, was released. “Kanye did not call for approval but to ask Taylor to release his single ‘Famous’ on her Twitter account,” her publicist said at the time. “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 bitch famous.’”
After publishing the videos late Sunday, Kardashian tweeted: “Theres a BIG difference between shading someone and speaking the truth!”
Swift has since responded to the videos saying it’s “character assassination” on Instagram. She claims to have not been told about the “I made that bitch” line in the song.
