Kanye West-Taylor Swift Feud Rekindled After New 'Diss' Song

Apparently, KANYE WEST is not gonna let this finish.
His feud with TAYLOR SWIFT, which goes back to the 2009 MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS, when he famously stormed the stage to interrupt her acceptance of her first MOONMAN over BEYONCE with the immortal words-turned Internet meme, "Imma let you finish," is back on.
With his new song, "Famous," on his soon-to-be-released album, "The Life Of Pablo," he writes, "I feel like me and TAYLOR might still have sex/I made that bitch famous."
Aside from trying to rhyme "sex" with "famous," KANYE's lyrics were blasted as misogynistic by the SWIFT camp, who claim WEST tried to get TAYLOR to tweet the song out to her followers.
"KANYE did not call for approval, but to ask TAYLOR to release the single, 'Famous,' on her TWITTER account. She declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynstic message. TAYLOR was never made aware of the actual lyric."
The two had apparently mending fences after SWIFT presented KANYE with the VIDEO VANGUARD AWARD at last year's carefully orchestrated MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS.
KANYE immediately took to the offensive. "I did not diss TAYLOR SWIFT and I've never dissed her ... First thing is, I'm an artist and as an artist I will express how I feel with no censorship."
KANYE went on to tweet that he first asked permission from his wife KIM KARDASHIAN about the lyric and that "I called TAYLOR and had a hour -long convo with her about the line and she thought it was funny and gave her blessings."
He also went on to explain that "bitch is an endearing term in hip-hop."
