Taylor Swift is a “fake ass” according to Kanye West. The rapper refers to his Hollywood nemesis with that wonderful descriptor in a leaked audio recording captured backstage at SNL this past weekend. In the recording, The Life of Pablo rapper also claims to be 50-percent more influential than Apostle Paul, Pablo Picasso and Pablo Escobar.
“Look at that sh*t, they took my f*ckin stage off of SNL without asking. Now I’m bummed … that and Taylor Swift’s fake ass,” Ye is heard clearly stating in the recording. “Now I ain’t gonna do this, we’re breaking the motherf*cking Internet. I went through six years of this f*cking shit,” he continues.
The rapper reportedly erupted over changes to his set design before performing “Ultra Beam Light”. Page Six states that production modified the flooring on his set because the surface interfered with their lighting, causing an odd reflection. SNL head honcho Lorne Michaels and Kim Kardashian reportedly pled with the controversial artist to not bail on the show.
Kanye also appears furious at Taylor Swift after she released a statement through her rep denying giving Kanye her blessing to rap about sleeping with her on the song “Famous”.
