Just when it looked like things had gone quiet on the Kanye West/Taylor Swift feud front, here comes Yeezy to stoke the fires again.
On Wednesday (27 July), Drake invited the fellow rapper to share the stage in his hometown of Chicago. To the cheers of his local fans, he finally addressed that Snapchat.
After performing a few hits from his latest album The Life of Pablo, Kanye finally addressed Swift.
“I am so glad my wife has Snapchat. Cause now y’all can know the truth,” the 39-year-old said as Rihanna‘s opening chorus of ‘Famous’ began to play.
“And can’t nobody talk shit about Ye no more.”
In case you’ve been living under a pop culture rock over the past few weeks, Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian West recently leaked a phonecall between Taylor and Kanye about his controversial song “Famous.”
Taylor had previously claimed that she never okayed the full lyrics (“I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ Why? I made that bitch famous”) while the phone call seems to suggest she at least gave the first line her blessing.
And Taylor hit back by insisting that she did not approve the words “I made that bitch famous”, taking aim at Kim and Kanye in a stinging statement and saying: “You don’t get to control someone’s emotional response to being called ‘that bitch’ in front of the entire world.”
It’s led to all manner of hysteria on the internet and beyond, with Taylor’s Wikipedia page vandalized, her Instagram page inundated with snake emoji, and her likeness used in a mural in memoriam of her career.
So Taylor, the ball is back in your court, unless Kim can tackle it away again.
