"I feel like I wasn’t ready to be friends with [West] until I felt like he had some sort of respect for me, and he wasn’t ready to be friends with me until he had some sort of respect for me -- so it was the same issue, and we both reached the same place at the same time,” Swift told the magazine. Apple treated me like I was a voice of a creative community that they actually cared about,” she explained.
“I became friends with Jay Z, and I think it was important, for Jay Z, for Kanye and I to get along. “And I found it really ironic that the multi-billion-dollar company reacted to criticism with humility, and the start-up with no cash flow reacted to criticism like a corporate machine.”On her pals that regularly show up all over her social media (and on stage with her), Swift explained, "We even have girls in our group who have dated the same people. now more than ever we need to be good and kind to each other and not judge each other -- and just because you have the same taste in men, we don’t hold that against each other,” she says.
The key players in this twisted web include Rob, Chyna, Kim Kardashian, her husband Kanye West, West's ex-girlfriend Amber Rose, Kim's half-sister Kylie Jenner and her boyfriend Tyga."You let a stripper trap you," he tweeted, referring to Rose's former profession.Rose jumped in the mix and shared some explicit glimpse of some back-door action Kanye apparently likes in the bedroom.She also noted that Swift’s attorney had sent a letter demanding the footage of their conversation be destroyed.When contacted Swift for clarification, a spokesperson supplied a lengthy statement in which Swift asserted she’d never heard the "bitch" phrase or the song in full before its release, and that she "cannot understand why Kanye West, and now Kim Kardashian, will not just leave her alone." Here’s the evidence we’re working with, listed in roughly chronological order: It may never be clear exactly what happened between Swift and West in the months between the composition of "Famous" and Kardashian’s Snapchat reveal, but that hasn’t kept people from speculating about the precise chain of events that led to last night’s conflagration.
