The saga of "Famous" continues. The first single off Kanye West's The Life of Pablo is perhaps most remembered for its opening lines: "For all my Southside n*ggas that know me best / I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous." The Taylor he speaks of is, of course, Ms. Swift, whom Kanye famously interrupted during her acceptance speech at the 2009 VMAs. Many were offended when the song was first heard, but Kanye maintained that Taylor had not only been aware the lyric but had also approved of it.
