Everyone knows that Taylor Swift and Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have one of the biggest feuds. It started with Kanye stealing the microphone from Swift during her 2009 VMA speech. They reconciled and all was fine. But then Kanye name dropped her in “Famous” from his album The Life of Pablo.
“I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? / I made this b***h famous,” is what Kanye rapped. Taylor said she didn’t know Kanye would be calling her a b***h in the song and called the song “misogynistic.”
Kim wasn’t having it and dropped a video of Taylor on the phone with Kanye getting her approval for the track. The video shows Taylor approving of the lyrics “might still have sex” but not the b***h lyric. Doesn’t matter the snake drama was done and Taylor went into social media hiding and returned with her album Reputation.
Taylor has never spoken out about the music video for “Famous” that is controversial. It featured naked wax figures of George W. Bush, Anna Wintour, Donald Trump, Rihanna, Chris Brown, Taylor, Kanye, Kim, Ray J, Amber Rose, Caitlyn Jenner and Bill Cosby, all laying in a bed together.
Many people had negative reactions to the video calling it “sexual harassment” and “revenge porn.” The video has more dislikes on YouTube than likes.
But now Taylor has voiced some opinions about the controversial video. A Taylor fan account posted a screenshot of a tweet calling out the problematic video.
“The ‘Famous’ music video was straight up revenge porn,” the tweet read. “Not to mention putting abuse victims next to their abusers and celebrating sexual assaulters. It was disgusting and he doesn’t get enough crap for it.”
The fan account wrote in the caption, “It’s so weird to see how Kanye got away with putting realistic depictions of naked celebrities in his video. I was reading comments the other day and people said they didn’t like Taylor because she “uses songs to humiliate her ex-boyfriends”, we know that’s not true but isn’t it strange that they don’t apply that same logic to a man putting a naked woman in his music video that’s been viewed millions of times because he just doesn’t like her.”
Taylor liked the Instagram post of the tweet. She didn’t comment further on the post, but a like means she supports what was said.
Is the feud reignited? Did it ever stop? Taylor, we need you to tell us what you think about the “Famous” music video.
