Here’s the Full Conversation Between Taylor and Kanye, Word for Word
The major drama stirred up between Kim, Kanye and Taylor Swift may have both sides making claims — and even threatening legal action — while the Internet rightfully goes nuts, but the master Kardashian may have changed the entire game. By secretly recording Taylor (which might mean major trouble for Ms. West), Kim at least can fully back up her claims that Taylor was aware of the lyrics that would soon spark such a firestorm.
Thanks to the folks over at Perez Hilton, we now have the full transcript of the conversation that went down in Kim’s (now not-so-) secret videos. Read, peruse and decide for yourself what’s up in this sticky sitch.
Kanye: “You still got the Nashville number?”
Taylor: “I still have the Nashville umm area code, but I had to change it.”
Kanye: “‘To all my southside n****s that know me best, I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex.'”
Taylor: “I’m like this close to overexposure.”
Kanye: “Oh, well this I think this a really cool thing to have.”
Taylor: “I know, I mean it’s like a compliment, kind of.”
Kanye: “All I give a f*ck about is you as a person and as a friend, I want things that make you feel good.”
Taylor: “That’s sweet.”
Kanye: “I don’t want to do rap that makes people feel bad.”
Taylor: “Umm, 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.”
Kanye: “Oh yeah, I just had a responsibility to you as a friend you know, and I mean thanks for being so cool about it.”
Taylor: “Aw, thanks. Um, yeah, I really appreciate it, like the heads up is so nice. [inaudible] 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.”
Kanye: “It’s pretty crazy.”
Taylor: “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.”
Kanye: “Relationships are more important than punch lines, ya know?”
Taylor: “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… 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.”
Kanye: “Thank you, too.”
Taylor: “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.”
So there it is, in their own words. But with a situation already so riled up, this certainly won’t be the end of it.
