APPLAUSE
>> Warning, this video contains excessive ranting by two highly paid pop stars. Fresh drama Monday in the ongoing feud between Taylor Swift and Kanye West. Taytay taking to Twitter to defend herself against being quote, falsely being painted as a liar. It's the latest salvo in their months long spat over whether she pre-approved the lyrics to his new song Famous.
00:00:24
It's the song in which West calls her a name that rhymes with witch and takes credit for her fame. West says Swift knowingly signed off on the words. Swift says not so much calling the lyric, misogynistic. But on Sunday Kanye got a major assist from his famous wife Kim.
00:00:42
Who, in a bit of stunning social media sleuthing, released a SnapChat video showing Kanye reading parts of the song to Swift on the phone. The video rocketing around the web and inspiring the gleeful hashtag #KimExplosedTaylorParty, and forcing Swift to throw some shade of her own with her latest tweet.
00:01:02
It's headline snapping, that moment when Kanye West secretly record your phone call, then Kim posts it on the Internet. Swift claiming Kanye never actually read her the part containing the b-word, nor played her the finished song. For those who care who'll this viral slug fest consider this. With Swift having just been named Forbes highest paid celebrity and Kim finishing among the top 50 and gracing the magazine's cover, along with Kanye song Famous having been streamed more than 80 million times, they're likely aren't any losers here.
