Taylor Swift was upset about Kanye West’s song “Famous” due to its lyrics. In the song, Kanye refers to Taylor Swift with the line: “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that b**** famous.”

The controversy arose because Kanye West claimed that he had obtained Taylor Swift’s approval for these lyrics, suggesting that she was aware of and fine with the content. However, Taylor Swift and her representatives maintained that she was not aware of the specific derogatory term used in the song (“that b****”), nor did she approve of being referred to in such a manner. This dispute sparked public attention and a heated back-and-forth between Kanye, Taylor, and their respective supporters, leading to a public fallout and a lot of media attention. Later, additional recordings surfaced that seemed to support Swift’s claim that she wasn’t fully briefed on the song’s lyrics before its release.
