Just try to keep up with Wendy Williams and her insane explanation of the ongoing feud between Taylor Swift, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West.
For those of you who don’t know, Swift and West have been going back and forth over whether or not Swift gave West permission to use her name in the lyrics of the song “Famous” from his new album, “The Life of Pablo.”
At first, West claimed that Swift signed off on the lyric, “for all my Southside n**as that know me best / I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous / God damn / I made that bitch famous.”
Swift immediately denied those claims, and West’s wife, Kim Kardashian West, chimed in, saying Swift had heard the lyrics — and the couple had video evidence to prove it.
On Sunday, all hell broke loose when Kardashian West leaked those videos on Snapchat.
Swift responded on Twitter with claims that West never told her he was going to call her “that bitch” in the song, and she never approved a final version before it was released.
Now that you are all caught up, let’s try to follow along with Wendy Williams’ explanation of why Swift is mad.
“Sometimes, you don’t mind being called the ‘B’ if it’s in the right context. Like, if your wrists are above your head,” she started. “Women, we can’t have it both ways, but we do. Kind of like the ‘N’ word. You know how black people throw around the ‘N’ word and it’s cool sometimes, according to some black people, and not cool other times. The same is true for the ‘B’ word.”
After a quick discussion about Williams’ post-show birthday celebration plans (happy birthday, girl!), she was back on track.
“So, Taylor should have explained that she didn’t know all of the lyrics. Instead, she was caught on the red carpet since the song has come out and said, ‘I didn’t know anything about the song.’ Like, she totally acted like, ‘I knew nothing about it,’ and ‘Kanye was wrong on every single level.'”
Williams applauded West’s politeness on the phone. “It sounds to me that Taylor knew what he was going to say but, it sounds like Taylor also had the right to be pissed because he ended up using the ‘I made the ‘B’ famous.'”
She then revealed that she never heard of Taylor Swift until West jumped onstage and interrupted her 2009 Video Music Awards acceptance speech, but technically, Swift was already famous because she had sold more 7 million copies of her album before that night.
“You made her more famous, but the ‘B’ word is what cuts as a woman,” Williams said before getting flustered. “Clap if you understand what I’m saying.”
