Kanye: Oh ok, dope. You still got the Nashville number?
Taylor: I still have the Nashville area code, but I had to change it.
Kanye: (rapping a line from the song Famous) ‘Too all my Southside n***** that know me best/I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex.’
Taylor: I’m like this close to overexposure.
Kanye: Oh. Well this one is uh – I think this is a really cool thing to have, uh, definitely.
Taylor: I know. I mean, it’s like a compliment kind of (laughs).
Kanye: What I give a f*** about is just you as a person and as a friend. I want things [starts talking over Taylor] that make you feel good. I don’t want to do rap that makes people feel bad.
Taylor: Um – yeah. I mean, go with whatever line you think is better. It’s obviously very tongue-in-cheek either way.
Taylor: And I really appreciate you telling me about it, that’s really nice.
Kanye: Oh yeah. I just have a responsibility to you as a friend, you know? And uh – I mean
Kanye: I mean, thanks for being, like, so cool about it.
Taylor: Aw, thanks. Um, yeah, I really appreciate it. Like, the heads up is so nice.
Taylor: …things without, like, even asking or seeing if I’d be okay with it and I just really appreciate it. Like, I never would have expected you to tell me about a line in one of your songs.
Taylor: And then the flowers that you sent me, I, like, Instagrammed a picture of them and it’s the most Instagram likes I’ve ever gotten, it was like 2.7 –
Kanye: Relationships are more important than punchlines, you know?
Taylor: Yeah. I mean, I don’t think anybody would listen to that and be like, ‘Oh that’s a real, that’s a real dis, like, she must be crying about – ‘
Taylor: It’s just you gotta tell the story the way that it happened to you and the way that you experienced it. Like, you honestly didn’t know who I was before that.
Taylor: It doesn’t matter if I sold seven million of that album before you did that, which is what happened, you didn’t know who I was before that. It’s fine.
Taylor: …in the event that I can make these things happen and I have the idea to do it and I create these things and concepts and, like, I’m always going to respect you.
Taylor: And I’m really glad that you have the respect to call me and tell me that as a friend about the song and –
Taylor: It’s just like, it’s a really cool thing to do – and a really good show of friendship. So thank you.
Kanye: Oh, thank you, too.
Taylor: And you know, if people ask me about it, I think it would be great for me to be like, ‘Look, he called me and told me the line before it came out. Like, joke’s on you guys, we’re fine’.
Taylor: You guys want to call this a feud, you want to call this throwing shade but, you know, right after the song comes out I’m going to be on a Grammy red carpet and they’re going to ask me about it and I’m going to be like, ‘He called me’.
Taylor: …and awesome that you’re so outspoken, and it’s going to be like ‘Yeah she does, it made her famous’. You know, so it’s more provocative to say ‘might still have sex’ because –
Taylor: It’s not – it’s not – it doesn’t matter to me. There’s not, like, one that hurts my feelings and one that doesn’t.
