Kanye West gave Taylor Swift a heads up about a lewd lyric where he raps about having sex with the singer, calls her a ‘b****’ and brags that he made her famous.
The rapper came under fire from Taylor’s friends Gigi Hadid and Jaime King on Twitter, and Taylor’s angry brother Austin Swift also shared a video of himself throwing away his Yeezy shoes in response on Thursday.
But Kanye reportedly called Taylor last month to tell her about the lyric and explain it was a joke, and the singer-songwriter saw the funny side and gave the rapper her blessing, reports TMZ.
‘I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex,’ Kanye, 38, raps in new song Famous, featuring Rihanna, from his new album The Life of Pablo, which he displayed(read: His Laptop-AUX cord-PA System) at the Madison Square during his Yeezy season 3 fashion callection/album reveal event.
He added: ‘I made that b*tch famous’. However, sources close to Taylor told the gossip site that Kanye called her to tell her that the lyric was a joke and to make sure she wasn’t offended.
Meanwhile, Taylor’s younger brother Austin Swift and her Girl Squad members Gigi Hadid and Jaime King stood up for the pop star after the lewd lyric.
