Newly leaked audio of a conversation between Taylor Swift and Kanye West has given a fresh perspective to their controversial 2016 phone call.
West originally caused a stir with his song "Famous" in which he raps, "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex, Why? I made that b**** famous," but it later emerged that they had discussed the lyrical content before the track's release.
Kanye claimed that Swift agreed to everything. She said she didn't. The feud grew even bigger when Kanye's wife Kim Kardashian leaked a heavily edited portion of the audio, which drew criticism from fans as well as Swift herself.
Now that an extended version of the conversation is out, many people are saying Swift was right that she wasn't told everything about what West was going to do, and she certainly never agreed to his requests, which included Swift releasing West's song on social media.
The new video clip that's has been widely circulated on social media reveals that West had not fully disclosed the contents of his song to Swift.
In footage of the original phone call, West tells Swift he is working on a song that uses the lyric, "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex," but no mention was made of the second line, "I made that b**** famous."
Swift, who was under the wrong impression, responds with relief, saying she is "glad it's not mean."
"It doesn't feel mean, but like, oh my God, the build-up you gave it. I thought it was gonna be like, 'that stupid dumb b****,' like, but it's not," she continues.
Originally when West and Kardashian failed to fully disclose the call, Swift was slammed for her negative response to the song. The saga eventually forced the pop icon to retreat from the limelight.
"When people decided I was wicked and evil and conniving and not a good person, that was the one I couldn't really bounce back from, because my whole life was centred around it," Swift revealed in her recently released documentary, "Miss Americana," according to Evening Standard.
