It's Only Been 4 Years But Taylor Swift Has Finally Responded To The Full Kanye West 'Famous' Phone Call Leak

She handled it in the most Taylor Swift way ever.

Footage of the entire call, where West and Swift discussed lyrics for his controversial track about her, came out on social media this weekend.

There's no denying that the Kardashians live in a time machine when it comes to their fashion choices. We mean, they single-handedly brought back cycle shorts, matrix sunglasses and neon. But now it appears their dramas are back to haunt us all over again.

Yes, my friends, it is apparently 2016 all over again because Taylor Swift made her first, definitive statement about the full Kanye West "Famous" phone leak on her Instagram. 

In case you actually have a life and have no idea what we're referring to...well, let us explain.

TRENDING TODAY: A Letter Of Apology To Video Calling

It all began in February of 2016 when Kanye West released a new song titled Famous. While the song was somewhat of a banger, it was the lyrics that got everybody talking. 

I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that b*tch famous. 

No, it wasn't Kanye's poor use of grammar that people found outrageous. It was Kanye's claim that had it not been for his little outburst when Taylor won the VMA for best female video in 2009. Watch below for a serious trip down memory lane, say it with us: "I'ma let you finish..."

As soon as the single dropped, the internet lost its mind for Kayne taking credit for Taylor Swift's success which later led to Kanye claiming that he sought Taylor's approval on the song before releasing it to the public. 

However, Swift strongly denied ever hearing the song before it's release so much so that she addressed it in her Grammys acceptance speech...

Then fast forward four months when Kim Kardashian released a phone recording of Taylor Swift where it appears she agrees to the use of her name in Kanye's song. And in true Kardashian fashion, Kim threw some serious shade on Twitter too.

Now that that’s out of the way, let’s move onto Swift's first, definitive statement about the full Kanye West "Famous" phone call. Footage of the entire call (not just the snippets Kim Kardashian has released in 2016), where West and Swift discussed lyrics for his controversial track about her, came out on social media this weekend. The full call footage shows that wasn't the case: Swift never signed off on West using the line "I made that b*tch famous."

Taking to her Instagram yesterday evening, March 24, the pop star bluntly acknowledged of the call's impact on her, then directed her fans to the actual issue that really matters right now: the coronavirus pandemic and supporting those impacted by it.

She wrote on her Instagram Story:

"Instead of answering those who are asking how I feel about the video footage that was leaked, proving 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 the last 4 years)...
