The only thing a lot more enjoyable than reading through about a public celebrity feud is reading through about the behind-the-scenes drama of the celebrity feud.
These days, you can't get far more entertaining than whatever is going on between Taylor Swift and Kanye West.
which, thanks to a GQ profile released Thursday, goes a whole lot deeper than any of us knew. Even though things had lastly settled between the two superstars following the infamous 2009 VMAs incident, their feud was ignited once more early this year, when West released his song called "Popular" with the lyric, "I really feel like me and Taylor may even now have intercourse/Why? I created that b--- renowned."
At the time, West claimed that Swift knew about the lyric in advance and told a mutual friend that she couldn't be mad at West due to the fact he created her popular. Swift's publicist vehemently denied the singer had provided her blessing to such a misogynistic line.
When Swift won album of the year for "1989" at the Grammys in February, she incorporated a extremely pointed line in her acceptance speech: "There are going to be folks along the way who will try to undercut your accomplishment or get credit for your accomplishments or your fame." In the GQ story, West's wife, Kim Kardashian.
threw the greatest match to fuel the story even more. When asked about the predicament, she apparently grew to become the most animated that she was throughout the whole interview, accusing Swift of lying about becoming upset about the song -- and saying Swift knew about the lyric all the song. "She completely approved that," Kardashian told GQ's Caity Weaver. "She absolutely knew that that was coming out. She wanted to all of a sudden act like she didn't. I swear, my husband will get so a lot s-- for items (when) he genuinely was doing correct protocol and even named to get it accepted." Here's where it gets complicated: In accordance to Kardashian, there is video proof that West had Swift's permission for the lyric, along with witnesses -- a videographer was filming the complete telephone get in touch with due to the fact West "commissions videographers to movie almost everything when he's recording an album." Then, Kardashian alleged, Swift's attorneys sent West a letter saying, "Will not ever allow that footage come out of me saying that.
Ruin it." So basically, Kardashian is upset that her husband seems to be like the bully, and thinks Swift was manipulating them all along. "It was funny since (on the contact with Kanye, Taylor) said, 'When I get on the Grammy red carpet, all the media is going to feel that I'm so against this, and I'll just laugh and say, 'The joke's on you, guys. I was in on it the entire time,'" Kardashian stated to GQ. "And I'm like, wait, but (in) your Grammy speech, you entirely dissed my husband just to play the victim once again." It is a good deal to unpack: But essentially, this feud can only get crazier, particularly with the reveal that there was some thing considerably stranger going on that involves publicists, lawyers, and perhaps a secret video. And in the globe of Swift, West and Kardashian, nothing stays secret for extended.
