Kanye West Responds to ‘The Life of Pablo’ Critics on Twitter
Kanye West is tweeting again. After sharing his latest album, The Life of Pablo, yesterday, the Chicago rhymer is defending his song, "Famous" in which he calls Taylor Swift a bitch.
"I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? / I made that bitch famous," 'Ye rhymes in the track.
But according to "Bound 2" rapper, he didn't "diss" her. "I did not diss Taylor Swift and I've never dissed her...," read a tweet that would be the beginning of West's latest Twitter rant. He even goes on to say that it was T. Swift's idea and that "bitch is an endearing term in hip hop like the word n----" -- but the pop singer is crying foul.
"Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single 'Famous' on her Twitter account," read a statement from the "Bad Blood" singer's spokesperson. "She declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message. Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, 'I made that bitch famous.'"
Only time will tell just who knew what before "Famous" dropped. But, in the meantime, 'Ye will be heading to Saturday Night Live along with Young Thug to perform The Life of Pablo's "Highlights” this weekend.
