Kanye West and Taylor Swift.
Four years after the phone call between Taylor Swift and Kanye West turned viral in the beginning, it’s in the news again. After pop star Kanye, who used his name in a song entitled Famous in 2016 in an insulting way, the wife of the rapper, Kim Kardashian, revealed an alleged audio recording of a call to the Snap Chat, in which she seemed to believe that Swift would approve the humiliating lyrics.
During Kanya’s famous rap, I feel like Taylor and I can still have sex. I made him famous. In a leaked video Friday night Swift Kanye seems to have used the first line, but the second verse, in which he calls him b****, has never been mentioned.
The sound of Kim’s story in 2016 seems to have been suppressed, but the impact on Swift was very intense after the reactions she got from Kanye fans. The lover’s singer was called a crook and a liar, and then Swift disappeared from public view for almost a year.
I can’t believe @KimKardashian just won the Pulitzer Prize for investigative journalism.

While Kanye announced that he had called and asked Swift for permission to use his words, Swift refused the request. Years later, in an interview with Rolling Stone in 2019, the issue of their continued hostility to Kanye was raised.
Mr. Swift said: When I heard this song, I thought: I’ve had enough of this. If you want to be in a bad relationship, let’s be realistic. And then he literally did the same thing to Drake. He had a great influence on the development of the Drake family. It’s the same thing. Getting close to you, gaining your trust, blowing you up… Look at the way Drake talks about what happened.
The singer was clearly irritated by his ambiguity. That he wants to be nice to me backstage, but then he wants to look cool, get up in front of everyone and talk (expressively). After Kanye called her: I felt we were connected again, which was good for me – because all I wanted for my entire career after the 2009 event (the infamous AVL break) was for him to respect me. When I was 19, I cured some kind of child rejection or something.
