Here is something I never thought would come out of my mouth: Kim Kardashian West just gave a damn good interview.
In Kim's GQ cover story, the reality television queen allowed the reporter to feel her boob (apparently it is super soft), admitted that she thinks George Bush was a "cute little president," and spoke candidly about the incestuous drama that is Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian.
But NOTHING — I repeat, nothing — comes close to the part of the interview where Kim addressed the ongoing drama between her husband, Kanye West, and Taylor Swift.
Because Mrs. West went IN on Swift — claiming Swift totally knew about that infamous "Famous" line in which West calls Swift a "bitch."
QUICK REFRESHER: In "Famous," off West's masterpiece "The Life of Pablo," West raps the line, "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / why? / I made that bitch famous."
The line references their infamous VMA spat from 2009. Skip to 0:27.
Swift's reps denied that the pop star had approved this "derogatory" line, but Kanye insists he called Swift himself to ask for permission, and that she was down.
So when Swift won album of the year for "1989" at the 2016 Grammys, many understood her acceptance speech to be a pointed dig at West.
Kim insisted that Swift even joked about the fact that everyone would expect her to be mad about the line — only to flip the script completely at the last minute.
"It was funny because [Taylor] said, ‘When I get on the Grammy red carpet, all the media is going to think 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 whole time.’ And I'm like, wait, but [in] your Grammy speech, you completely dissed my husband just to play the victim again.”DAMN KIM!
Kim also defended her husband's manners, citing how West went out of his way to get Swift's approval to use her name in "Famous."
"I swear, my husband gets so much shit for things [when] he really was doing proper protocol ... What rapper would call a girl that he was rapping a line about to get approval?"
Kim also suggested that Swift is being too sensitive, and that being called a "bitch" in a rap song is NBD:
"I mean, [Kanye]'s called me a bitch in his songs. That's just, like, what they say. I never once think, [gasping] ‘What a derogatory word! How dare he?’"
GQ reached out to Swift's reps about Kim's claims — and the shocking statement from Swift's team was published in full in the feature about Kim:
WOW, dare I say that was a jab at Kim? It ends with:
"Kim Kardashian's claim that Taylor and her team were aware of being recorded is not true, and Taylor cannot understand why Kanye West, and now Kim Kardashian, will not just leave her alone.”
