Kanye West New Beef with Taylor Swift

Kanye West seems to have stuck his foot in his mouth again as he made a sexual comment regarding pop-star Taylor Swift. Ohhh…crap just when I thought they had made up and put the past behind them. In his new song title, “Famous” he raps about the artist.
“I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ Why? I made that b***h famous.”
Ugh!!! Kanye why did you have to say that. He should know that talking about Taylor would backfire on him. Taylor has an allegiance of fans and friends who will have her back no matter what. TMZ has reported that West gave Taylor a heads up about the provocative lyrics but Swift’s team strongly deny this claim. They say that he only asked Taylor to release the song on her Twitter account. Taylor’s camp says that they told him no because they did not appreciate having such a song tied to the artist with such a strong misogynistic message. West said that he did not diss Taylor and he had the approval of his wife Kim Kardashian before he released the song. Many celebrities tweeted their disappointment in Kanye.
There is a lot of he/she within this story and it is hard to know who is telling the truth within this story. All I know is that this supposed beef between the two needs to stop because the media will eat this up. Taylor will look like an innocent and Kanye will be made out to the monster.
Honestly, I say Kanye is doing this because he wants his latest album to sell as his other albums have sold. What is a better way to have people flock to your album then to have it tainted with controversy? Let’s not forget the whole Kanye vs. Wiz Khalifa vs. Amber Rose drama that happened a couple of weeks ago. After the feud, Kim and Amber Rose posted a selfie with one another shaking the internet and social media to its core.
After Rihanna released her long-awaited album with no advance fanfare Anti and Beyoncé had her Superbowl performance no wonder Kanye had to stick to such antics. He knew that his album wouldn’t be talk about as much these two pop-star divas. Kanye is such a talented artist I don’t know why he has to resort to such extremes measures. Here’s to hoping that one day he will stop letting his mouth do more damage than it has already done.
