As Radar previously reported, Kanye took major liberties during the show, throwing major shade at once enemy Taylor Swift with these hateful lyrics: "I feel like me and Taylor might have sex. I made that b*tch famous."

Following the diss, many Swift squad members showed their distaste for West. Taylor's brother Austin even posted a video of him throwing out the hip-hop artist's album.

But never one to let the drama lie, Kanye weighed in on the situation, sharing that he "did not diss Taylor Swift and I've never dissed her…"

Yeah, sure Kanye. The rapper went on to say, "I asked my wife for her blessings and she was cool with it." Really, Kim? Sources tell Radar that the reality star has had trouble dealing with her "controlling" hubby in recent weeks.

"I called Taylor and had a hour long convo with her about the line and she thought it was funny and gave her blessings," Kanye went on, claiming Taylor's approval, adding, "I'm not even gone take credit for the idea… it's actually something Taylor came up with …"

And if that weren't enough, the rapper turned fashion designer gave followers a hip-hop vocabulary lesson. "B*tch is an endearing term in hip hop like the word N***a," he tweeted.

Meanwhile, Swift's publicist released a statement that contradicted Kanye's claims: "Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single 'Famous' on her Twitter account. She declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message. Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, 'I made that b*tch famous.'"
