Taylor Swift made reference to a recently leaked video about the infamous phone call that took place in 2016, between her and Kanye West, over Kanye using her name in that “Famous” line that went:
“To my Southside ni**as that know me best/I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/Why? I made that bitch famous.”
The Taylor Swift/Kanye West/Kim Kardashian drama over the song took an interesting turn over the weekend, when the full version of the notorious 2016 phone call leaked around social media.

The video shows Kanye discussing the tune with the Taylor, and asking for her permission to use her name. He asks about the first line, which ended up as “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex,” but he does not mention the follow up lyric in question.
Swift kind of acknowledged the development on Monday by focusing on the world’s more pressing issues.
In an image posted as part of her Instagram Stories, the singer writes: “Instead of answering those who are asking how I feel about the video footage that leaked, proving that I was telling the truth the whole time about *that call* (you know, the one that was illegally recorded, that somebody edited and manipulated in order to frame me and put me, my family, and fans through hell for 4 years)… SWIPE up to see what really matters.”

What really matters, she adds in an additional image, is donating to organizations that are critical during the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
Talk about killing 2 birds with 1 stone.
