Kim Kardashian: Taylor Swift using Kanye West's Famous 'to play the victim'

It’s unlikely that the argument over whether Taylor Swift knew about Kanye West’s line about her in “Famous” will be resolved anytime soon.

Kim Kardashian told GQ last month Swift “totally approved” the now infamous line — “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that bitch famous” — ahead of time. In a new Keeping up With The Kardashians clip, Kardashian explains why she publicly spoke out for her husband West.

“I never talk s— about anyone, like publicly, especially in interviews, but I was just like, ‘I’ve so had it,'” Kardashian tells her sister, Kourtney. “I just felt like I wanted to defend him in it. Because it’s like, she legitimately, quote, says, ‘As soon as I get on that Grammy red carpet, I’m gonna tell all the press I was in on it.'”

Swift and her camp have repeatedly denied approving the “Famous” lyrics. “Taylor does not hold anything against Kim Kardashian as she recognizes the pressure Kim must be under and that she is only repeating what she has been told by Kanye West,” her reps said after the GQ interview. “However, that does not change the fact that much of what Kim is saying is incorrect.”

In the Keeping up With The Kardashians clip, Kourtney follows up by asking if Swift allegedly backtracked because she didn’t like the reaction to the line. “Yeah, and just another way to play the victim. Definitely got her a lot of attention the first time,” Kim Kardashian replies. “I just don’t think that [West] should be punished for [the 2009 VMAs] still to this day.” Kim added that Swift helped West rewrite the line during their phone call.

“I’ve had it with people blatantly treating my husband a certain way and making him look a certain way,” she adds. “At this point, I really don’t give a f—, so I will do whatever to protect my husband.”
