An old conversation between Kanye West and Taylor Swift about the song “Famous” has surfaced online.

In the clip, ‘Ye asks the pop star for permission to use the line, “For all my Southside niggas that know me best, I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/Why? I made that bitch famous” — only, he left out the words ‘that bitch.’

Kanye eventually stumbled around the question, “What if later in the song I was also to have said, ‘I made her famous?’” to which Swifts asked, “Did you say that?”

“Yes, it might have happened,” Ye replied. Swift responded, “Well, what am I going to do about it? It’s kind of like, whatever at this point. You gotta tell the story the way it happened to you and the way that you experienced it. You honestly didn’t know who I was before that.

“It doesn’t matter if I sold seven million of that album before you did that, which is what happened. You didn’t know who I was before that. It’s fine. But yeah, I can’t wait to hear it.”

The full conversation is wildly different from the one Kim Kardashian leaked in 2016. It’s now painfully obvious it was edited to make it sound like Swift approved of the line.

“I think this is a really cool thing to have,” Kanye said about the lyric.

Swift replied, “I know, it’s like a compliment, kind of [laughs]. Yeah, I mean, what’s dope about the line is it’s very tongue-in-cheek either way. And I really appreciate you telling me about it, that’s really nice. For you to ask me if I’d be OK with it, I really appreciate it. I’d never expect you to tell me about a line in your song.”

“Relationships are more important than punchlines,” Ye concluded.

Following the “Famous” song, Swift retreated from the public spotlight, a period that was captured in the recent Netflix doc about Swift, Miss Americana. 

In 2016, she addressed the controversy, writing, “Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me ‘that bitch’ in his song? It doesn’t exist because it doesn’t happen. You don’t get to control someone’s emotional response to be calling ‘that bitch’ in front of the entire world.

“Of course I wanted to like the song. I wanted to believe Kanye when he told me that I would love the song. I wanted us to have a friendly relationship.”

As a result of the newly surfaced clip, #KanyeWestPartyIsOver is trending on Twitter. Naturally, the platform exploded with reactions to this revelation.
