Here in the EDM world we try to stick to EDM news only but this celebrity deathmatch feud is just too interesting.

It all started a while back when Kanye wrote the song “Famous” with the lyrics saying:
Me and Taylor might still have sex… I made that bitch famous. I made that bitch famous.
Kim Kardashian Leaks The Kanye-Taylor Recording
The Taylor Swift Kanye West recording was initially leaked by Kim Kardashian’s Snapchat on Sunday that then eventually allowed the video to make its way to Twitter then the entire internet. It appears Kim Kardashian leaked the Taylor-Kanye phone call recording in an attempt to discredit Swift. But now Taylor Swift is seeking legal action against Kanye West as he didnt properly inform her she was being recorded or clear the lyrics that referred to Taylor as a ‘bitch’ or that he ‘still might have sex’ with her.
TMZ has a copy of a letter Taylor’s lawyer sent to Kanye’s attorney back in February 2016. The lawyer made it clear, under California law, anyone who secretly records a telephone conversation with someone in the state commits a crime that is a criminal offense … and it’s a felony. A source with direct knowledge of the conversation told TMZ it was recorded in an L.A.-area studio.
Taylor Swift replied on Instagram saying how Kanye never played her the song or the offending lyric.

Here’s a complete transcript of the conversation:
Kanye West: “You still got the Nashville number?”
Taylor Swift: “I still have the Nashville area code, but I had to change it.”
West: “To all my southside n—s that know me best, I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex.”
Swift: “I’m feeling like this close to overexposure.”
West: “Oh well this I think this a really cool thing to have.”
Swift: “I know, I mean it’s like a compliment (kind of).”
West: “All I give a f–k about is you as a person and as a friend, so I want things that make you feel good. “
Swift: “Oh that’s sweet.”
West: “I don’t want to do a rap that makes people feel bad.”
Swift: “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.”
West: “Oh yeah, I just had a responsibility to you as a friend you know, and I mean thanks for being so cool about it.”
Swift: “Aw thanks. Um yeah I really appreciate it, like the heads up is so nice. Just even asking or seeing if I would be okay with it and I just really appreciate it. Like I would never expect you to like tell me about a line in one of your songs.”
West: “Yeah this is pretty crazy.”
Swift: “And then the flowers that you sent me, I like Instagrammed a picture of them and it’s like the most Instagram likes I’ve ever gotten. It was like 2.7 million.”
West: “Relationships are more important than punch lines, you know what I mean?”
Swift: “I don’t think anyone would listen to that and be like that’s a real diss she must be crying. You’ve gotta tell the story the way that 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 that I sold 7 million of that album before you did that which is what happened, you didn’t know who I was before that. It’s fine.”
Swift: “Really, I might be in debt, but I can make these things happen. I have the ideas to do it and I create these things and concepts. I’m always going to respect you. I’m really glad that you have the respect to call me and tell me that as a friend about the song. It’s a really cool thing to do and a really good show of friendship so thank you.”
West: “Thank you too.”
Swift: “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 the line before it came out. Jokes on you guys, We’re fine.’ You guys want to call this a feud; you want to call this throwing shade but right after the song comes out I’m going to be on a Grammys red carpet and they’re going to ask me about it and I’ll be like, ‘He called me.’ It’s awesome that you’re so outspoken about this and be like, ‘Yeah, she does. It made her famous.’ Its more provocative to say ‘might still have sex…’ It’s doesn’t matter to me. There’s not like one [line] that hurts my feelings and one that doesn’t.”
