Kim Kardashian West slams Taylor Swift

Kim Kardashian West has slammed Taylor Swift for "playing the victim".

The 35-year-old reality star has insisted the 'Shake It Off' singer was fully aware her husband Kanye West had referenced her in his track 'Famous' - which includes the lyrics "I feel like me and Taylor Swift might still have sex, I made that bitch famous" - gave her approval, and even promised to laugh about the song at the Grammy awards.

However, Taylor took to the stage to slam people "who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame" during her Grammy acceptance speech for Album of the Year, something which Kim was surprised to hear.

The brunette beauty told America's GQ magazine: "She totally knew that that was coming out. She wanted to all of a sudden act like she didn't...I swear, my husband gets so much s**t for things [when] he really was doing proper protocol and even called to get it approved.

"It was funny because [on the call with Kanye, Taylor] said, 'When I get on the Grammy red carpet, all the media is going to think that I'm so against this, and I'll just laugh and say, 'The joke's on you, guys. I was in on it the whole time.'

"And I'm like, wait, but [in] your Grammy speech, you completely dissed my husband just to play the victim again."

Kanye - who has kids North, three, and Saint, six months, with Kim - has previously insisted he never intended to "diss" Taylor with the controversial lyric.

In a series of tweets, he wrote: "I did not diss Taylor Swift and I've never dissed her ... First thing is I'm an artist and as an artist I will express how I feel with no censorship ... 2nd thin I asked my wife for her blessings and she was cool with it ...

"3rd thing I called Taylor and had a hour long convo with her about the line and she thought it was funny and gave her blessings ... 4th Bitch is an endearing term in hip hop like the word n***a (sic)"

Taylor and Kanye's feud began in 2009 when the 'All Day' rapper invaded the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards to protest over the 'Bad Blood' hitmaker picking up Best Female Video, a prize he felt should have gone to Beyonce.

Following the infamous incident, Taylor and Kanye did not speak for a long time, but six years later, the 'Blank Space' singer revealed she and Kanye had buried the hatchet and were on "good terms", though things changed with 'Famous'.
