The recent friction between Taylor Swift and Kanye West arguing about who’s telling lies about their alleged song agreement is just a clear proof that celebrities are humans after all. They may flash their adorable looks and glamour to the envy of many but as human beings, they can be pissed off, behave badly, lie or deny telling a lie. Well, perceiving them as role models to the youth is already putting great pressure on them. It’s time to let the young ones understand that their idols are just like any other man or woman that can commit mistakes as they go along. Perhaps, it doesn’t matter anymore who’s right or wrong. If the public is forgiving, Taylor Swift and Kanye West do not have to worry about their publicized feud. Go ahead and make up but let’s trace down how it all started:
According to Buzzfeed: After being dragged on Twitter for lying (though technically she didn’t), Taylor posted this statement to her Instagram. “Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me ‘that bitch’ in his song? It doesn’t exist because it never happened. You don’t get to control someone’s emotional response to being called ‘that bitch’ in front of the entire world. Of course I wanted to like the song.
It continued: Ye’ a song you haven’t heard. Being falsely painted as a liar when I was never given I wanted to believe Kanye when he told me that I would love the song. I wanted us to have a friendly relationship. He promised to play the song for me, but he never did. While I wanted to be supportive of Kanye on the phone call, you cannot approve full story or played any part of the song is character assassination. I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative, one that I have never asked to be a part of, since 2009.”She uploaded it with a caption pointing out that Kanye recorded her secretly, and she never gave him or Kim permission to release the recording. “That moment when Kanye West secretly records your phone call, then Kim posts it on the internet.”So while Taylor approved the “I think me and Taylor might still have sex” lyric, she never knew he would call her “that bitch” in the song, and that is what she took issue with.
