Kim Kardashian called out Taylor Swift for approving Kanye West’s “Famous” lyrics about her in the Snapchat heard ’round the world Sunday (July 17). And while Swift does approve the lyrics West reads to her in the video, she made clear in an Instagram post that she didn’t approve of being called “that bitch” in the song, nor did she ever hear the finished product.
It set off an Internet firestorm, but it wasn’t just the fans who got riled up. Swift’s bestie Selena Gomez and actress Chloe Grace Moretz both weighed in with the sentiment that people with such influence in the world should perhaps be using that influence for something better than fighting about song lyrics.
Of course, Moretz has a little history of criticizing the Kardashians, so Kim’s sister Khloe decided to tweet a photo that allegedly exposes Moretz’s vagina. Moretz was quick to correct Kardashian, saying that that photo isn’t of her.
Meanwhile, on Sunday’s “Watch What Happens Live,” guest Billy Eichner was asked about everyone “trying to take down Taylor Swift” and he says what basically boils down to all publicity is good publicity.
“I think Taylor Swift likes to be talked about and ultimately likes everything that’s happening, on some level,” says the “Difficult People” star.
Finally, according to Yahoo U.K.’s screenshots, several celebrities “liked” tweets in support of Kardashian — Demi Lovato, Pharrell Williams and Zendaya — but all of those “likes” have since been un-liked. Though Hailey Baldwin has not taken her clapping emoji tweet down.
