People Are Noticing Something Fishy About Taylor Swift's Response to Kim Kardashian

Did you notice this one detail?

This beef between Taylor Swift and Kim Kardashian is getting out of hand. To recap: Kanye released a song called "Famous" that included the extremely vulgar line "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? / I made that bitch famous." At the time, he said that he called Taylor and got her approval on the lyrics, a claim that Kim Kardashian backed up during a recent interview in GQ (opens in new tab) in which she said she had video evidence to prove it. However, Tay has doggedly denied any knowledge of the song's lyrics, even making a vague clapback to Kanye during his epic acceptance speech for winning Album of the Year at the 2016 Grammys.

On Sunday, Kim Kardashian finally revealed footage of the alleged phone call between Kanye and Tay. In the video, you can hear him read out the line "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex," to which Tay responds that she's "this close to overexposure," before laughing and saying it's "a compliment kind of." She then tells him to "go with whatever line you think is better" and thanks him profusely for giving her a heads up.

In response to the released footage, Taylor posted a note on her Twitter in which she explains that Kanye never told her that he was going to say "I made that bitch famous," which is what she took offense to. She then said she would like to be "excluded from this narrative," aka left alone.

And Tay's totally right. There isn't, as far as we know, any evidence to suggest that Tay knew that Kanye was going to call her a b. But Twitter users have been noticing something interesting about her note since it was posted.

Usually, when you open a note, there is a button on the top left that enables you to go back to your notes:

However, on the top left of Taylor's note, it says "search," indicating that she wrote the note a while ago and then found it using search.


If you look very very closely, you'll see what appears to be some faded words at the top that say "because it doesn't exist."

That's what happens when you look for a specific word or phrase, so readers are speculating that Tay wrote the note after Kim's GQ interview, writing that the video she claimed to have of her and Kanye didn't exist, then amended the note before posting it in response to the video leak.

Even if that's true, it's not exactly a big deal. The fact remains that there's no evidence of Kanye telling Tay that he was planning on saying "I made that b*tch famous," which is the line that caused trouble, trouble, trouble in the first place.
