ELLE – Kanye West releases “Famous,” a song on his newest album, The Life of Pablo, that includes the lyrics “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/Why? I made that bitch famous.” Taylor Swift objected to the song’s “strong misogynistic message,” particularly the line “I made that bitch famous.” In a cover story for GQ, Kim Kardashian claimed that Swift was given a head’s up about the song by Kanye West himself. In a Snapchat story on Sunday night, Kardashian posted the video of the call, where Swift thanks Kanye for the head’s up. “I really appreciate it,” she says. “This is so nice.”
I love fake feuds!
By now, you all should know that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have been in a feud with Taylor Swift for a few years now. It started with Kanye interrupting Taylor at the VMA’s a few years ago. Then, Taylor becomes friends with Kanye. Then, they’re not friends again and Kim exposes Taylor. I’m not going into the specifics of the feud, but I will give you my biggest takeaway:
Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, and Taylor Swift are geniuses.
That is not a typo. I’ll say it again. Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, and Taylor Swift are geniuses.
Everything about this feud is a publicity stunt. If you do not believe that, then you are INSANE. Answer these questions for me if you think I’m the crazy one.
Why would Kim post this video exposing Taylor Swift now if she had it for months? Was it a coincidence that the video was posted on the same night as a Keeping Up With The Kardashians episode that talked about the feud? Why would Taylor continue to deny that she gave Kanye permission to use the line in his song when she in fact gave Kanye permission to talk about her? Do you really think that Taylor Swift would give permission over the phone when she knows that there are cameras recording Kim and Kanye’s every move? Why does this whole thing seem fishy and staged?
BECAUSE THIS IS NOT A FEUD. THIS IS A PUBLICITY STUNT.
This is so fake it’s not even funny. People do not like buddy-buddy relationships as much as they like a good feud. How will Taylor defeat Kanye and Kim? How can Kanye diss Taylor? What will Kim do? It’s like a perfectly written soap opera. All three of these celebrities are three of the most powerful people on the planet. The three of them are puppet masters and we are the damn puppets. Wake up, people! Sure, no one will be on Twitter on a Sunday night…
The propaganda machine keeps on turning. I firmly believe that any publicity is good publicity. I’m not even a huge Kanye, Kim, and Taylor fan, but you better believe that I’m informed on the drama and talking about the “feud” with friends. I have no stats to prove this, but I can guarantee that the fashion and music associated with all three of the celebrities has increased over the day. Nothing important on in terms of television and entertainment? How about lighting a Twitter match on Sunday night post Game of Thrones and setting it on fire? Pure genius. Kanye, Kim, and Taylor are going to continue this “feud” as they sit on their Iron Thrones while the peasants like me talk about it on Twitter. Now that my friends is the tragedy. I can’t wait for all three of these celebs to sit down on a show like Fallon or Kimmel to put aside their differences and become “friends” again. Genius.
P.S. Larry King trying to direct the spotlight towards him during the feud was LOL funny. Cannot knock Larry K’s hustle.
