Here's The Full Transcript Of The Conversation Between Kanye And Taylor Swift
| Last updated
Frankly, I was glad I woke up this morning to have a non-argument between Kim, Kanye and Taylor splashed across my Twitter feed, because it's better than the reports of death I'm becoming accustomed to.
For those not in the know, Kim posted this Snapchat video of a phone conversation between Ye and Taylor where they discuss THOSE lyrics from 'Famous'.

"It's like a compliment, kind of," Swift says in response. "Go with whatever line you think is better. It's obviously very tongue in cheek either way." She adds: "I really appreciate you telling me about it. That's really nice.
Taylor then released a statement where she states that she was never told that Kanye also called her a bitch in the song.
"Where is the video of Kanye telling me that he was going to call me 'that bitch' in his song? It doesn't exist because it never happened," she wrote. "You don't get to control someone else's emotional response to being called 'that bitch' in front of the entire world."
Kim Kardashian also added in an interview with GQ that Taylor asked for that video evidence to be destroyed. "She totally knew that [the song] was coming out. She wanted to all of a sudden act like she didn't," Kim was quoted as telling the British magazine.
The full conversation has now been transcribed thanks to Metro:
Kanye West: You still got the Nashville number?
Taylor Swift: I still have the Nashville um, area code but I had to change it.
KW: For all my southside n***** that know me best, I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex.
TS: I'm like this close to over exposure...
KW: Oh well this this one, I think this is a really cool thing to have, uh...
TS: I know, I mean it's like a compliment kind of.
KW: All I give a fuck about is just you as a person and as a friend I want things that make...
TS: That's sweet.
KW: I don't want to do rap that makes people feel bad.
TS: Um, yeah I mean go with whatever line you think is better. It's obviously very tongue in cheek either way. And I really appreciate you telling me about it, that's really nice.
KW: Yeah, I just had a responsibility to you as a friend, you know, and thanks for being like so cool about it.
TS: Aw thanks. Yeah I really appreciate it. The heads up is soo nice, and I really appreciate it and I never would've expected you to tell me about a line in one of your songs. And the flowers that you sent me, I like Instagrammed a picture of them and it's the most Instagram likes I've ever gotten it was like 2.7...
KW: Relationships are more important than punchlines, you know.
TS: Yeah, I mean I don't think anybody would listen to that and be like oh that's a real diss, like she must be crying. You've gotta tell the story the way that it happened to you and the way that you experienced it. Like you honestly didn't know who I was before that. It doesn't matter if I sold 7 million of that album before you did that, which is what happened. You didn't know who I was before that it's fine. I might be that I can make these things happen that I create these things and concepts and like I'm always going to respect you and I'm really glad that you have the respect to call me and tell me that this time about the song and... It's just like a really cool thing to do like and it really shows the friendship so thank you.
KW: Thank you too.
TS: And you know if people ask me about it I think it would great for me to be like look he called me and told me the line before it came out like so jokes on you guys we're fine. You guys want to call this a feud you want to call this throwing shade. Right after the song comes out I'm going to be on a Grammy red carpet and I'm gonna be like, He called me. Yeah, she does, it made her famous. You know, it's more provocative to say "Might still have sex"... it's not..it's not..it doesn't matter to me. There's not one that hurts my feelings and one that doesn't.
As with most things, the debate has spawned a multitude of memes.

But is the whole thing making an argument out of a bit of a non-event? Has Taylor really been exposed?
