Whether we like to believe it or not, Hollywood is a lot like
Ye and Tay’s backstory is just as convoluted as the mind of George R.R. Martin, and their Famous feud actually sort of mirrored the storyline between Queen Cersei and the High Sparrow.
So, here’s what went down. Before he released the song Famous, Yeezy actually called Taylor and gave her a heads up over referencing her in a controversial lyric.
Rather than getting upset, TayTay was actually super cool about it — even saying she’d back up the rapper if people gave him heat for the lyric!
Yes, despite their earlier disagreements, it seemed like Kanye and Taylor were on their way to becoming BFFs, just like a very similar bond formed in Westeros — when Queen Cersei joined forces with the High Sparrow.
But in each case, the alliance backfired
Smash cut to February when Kanye released The Life Of Pablo during his fashion show — and everyone went ballistic over the line in Famous!
But instead of defend the lyric like she said she would, Taylor put Ye on BLAST and condemned him for releasing a song with such a “strong misogynistic message!” Knowing his past history on the subject, Twitter gave the rapper MAJOR heat.
When all seemed lost for Cersei, her creepy sidekick Qyburn reminds her about the Wildfire hidden under King’s Landing, which would wipe out the High Sparrow and those who sided with him.
Of course, you wouldn’t expect Kim to actually POST the private video and expose the pop star, right? Then again, you also wouldn’t expect Cersei to blow up the Sept but guess what happened!?
And we all know what happened next…
Well, it looks like Kimye won this round. But will they win the great war ahead of them?
Only time will tell!
