Kim Kardashian has finally taken to Snapchat to post the video of Taylor Swift's phone conversation with Kanye West, in which the Blank Space singer seemingly gives the rapper the green light to use the lyrics "For all my Southside niggas that know me best / I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex" in his song Famous.

The videos, strung together, show Kanye speaking to Taylor on the phone, conveniently put on loudspeaker for the record. He tells her the line in question, asserting that "What I give a f*ck about is just you as a person, and as a friend... I want things that make you feel good. I don't wanna do rap that makes people feel bad," to which Taylor says "Um, yeah. I mean, go with whatever line you think is better. It's obviously very tongue-in-cheek either way. And I really appreciate you telling me about it, that's really nice!"

Moreover, as Kim previously claimed in that famous GQ cover story, Taylor was also recorded saying that she'd tell everyone at the Grammys that the joke's on them and that Kanye did call her to ask for her permission to use the line.

"And you know, if people ask me about it, I think it would be great for me to be like, 'Look, he called me and told me about the line before it came out. Like, joke's on you guys, we're fine,'" Taylor is heard saying. "You guys wanna call this a feud, you wanna call this throwing shade. But right after the song comes out I'm gonna be on the Grammy red carpet and they're gonna ask me about it and I'm gonna be like, he called me." But as we all know, Taylor said nothing of the sort on the red carpet, and took a subtle-but-not-really stab at Kanye during her acceptance speech.


While it seems that she was in the know about that one line, Taylor's new response about the whole situation hints that she did not approve about Kanye referring to her as a bitch in his song. She wrote that not only did Kanye not play the song for her prior to its release, she maintains that she "was never given the full story."


That moment when Kanye West secretly records your phone call, then Kim posts it on the Internet.

So really, this is all about Kanye not being thorough when he asked Taylor for permission.
