Kanye West Suggests That ‘Misogynistic’ Line About Taylor Swift Was Her Idea

Kanye West could change the entire conversation by officially releasing The Life of Pablo, his album that — despite playing it at his Yeezy Season 3 event — might not actually exist (it’s really a performance art piece with Shia LaBeouf!). Instead, West spent the morning on Twitter responding to Taylor Swift’s claims that his song, “Famous,” has a “strong misogynistic message.”

Swift said in a statement that she was “never made aware” of the lyric, “I made that bitch famous,” from the rapper’s new album, an assertion that West strongly denies. In fact, he wrote in a long Twitter marathon, the entire idea was hers.

Remember when Kanye told students at Oxford University that with “my voice, with my ability to build relationships with amazing people, speak to amazing people… [I can] call Obama out of the blue — Obama calls the home phone, by the way?” And Obama told Jimmy Kimmel that while he loves Kanye’s music, “I don’t think I’ve got his home number?” Feels kinda like that.

The moral of this story: Kim Kardashian seems like a chill wife.
