On the off chance you think Kim Kardashian posing nude on the cover of GQ is just another nude magazine cover, think again. Inside the pages, the reality TV star gets candid about Taylor Swift’s beef with Kanye West, voting for Hillary Clinton and what was really in O.J.’s Louis Vuitton bag.
“All my friends and my sisters say, ‘You guys are so perfect for each other. There’s no one that would want to sit in your closet for hours with you and try on clothes,” the 36-year-old tells GQ‘s Caity Weaver.
And speaking of Kanye, Kim reveals what really went down in the reignited feud with Taylor Swift.
“She totally knew that was coming out,” Kardashian says, referring to Swift’s reaction following the release of West’s song “Famous”.
“[She] totally gave the okay. Rick Rubin was there. So many respected people in the music business heard that [conversation],” Kardashian says revealing there were videographers filming the phone call between Swift and West for a “Life Of Pablo” making of.
“I mean, he’s called me a b**ch in his songs. That’s just, like, what they say. I never once think, [gasping] ‘What a derogatory word! How dare he?’ Not in a million years,” Kardashian adds.
“I don’t know why she just, you know, flipped all of a sudden… it was funny because [on the call with Kanye, Taylor] said, ‘When I get on the Grammy red carpet, all the media is going to think that I’m so against this, and I’ll just laugh and say, ‘The joke’s on you, guys. I was in on it the whole time.’ And I’m like, wait, but [in] your Grammy speech, you completely dissed my husband just to play the victim again.”
So what does Kardashian think of a Taylor, Kanye makeup 2.0?
“No.” Kardashian says, adding the two last got in touch via “an attorney’s letter sent [telling Kanye], ‘Don’t ever let that footage come out of me saying that. Destroy it.'”
GQ previously requested a comment from Swift’s camp, which they never responded to. But with the trending nature of the interview, Swift’s rep has released a statement concerning the story: “Taylor does not hold anything against Kim Kardashian as she recognizes the pressure Kim must be under and that she is only repeating what she has been told by Kanye West. However, that does not change the fact that much of what Kim is saying is incorrect.”
Adding, “Kanye West and Taylor only spoke once on the phone while she was on vacation with her family in January of 2016 and they have never spoken since. Taylor has never denied that conversation took place,” the rep continued. “It was on that phone call that Kanye West also asked her to release the song on her Twitter account, which she declined to do. Kanye West never told Taylor he was going to use the term, ‘that bitch’ in referencing her. A song cannot be approved if it was never heard. Kanye West never played the song for Taylor Swift. Taylor heard it for the first time when everyone else did and was humiliated. Kim Kardashian’s claim that Taylor and her team were aware of being recorded is not true, and Taylor cannot understand why Kanye West, and now Kim Kardashian, will not just leave her alone.”
Previously proclaiming herself a “liberal Republican” Kardashian reveals to GQ she’s changing sides, telling Weaver “as I’ve grown up, I decided what I think is best for me instead of what my parents would have voted for,” revealing she plans to vote for Hillary Clinton.
Featuring slightly in the barrage of O.J. Simpson look back shows, series and other items celebrating the 25th anniversary of the trial of the century, does Kim Kardashian remember O.J.’s Louis Vuitton garment bag?
“Totally,” she tells Weaver. Adding that when she went through it all she found was “toiletries and clothes and golf clothes. Just random stuff. I’m pretty sure it’s like, still in – probably in my dad’s storage.”
Clearing up the rumours about what was really in the bag, Kardashian also clears up how she feels about being portrayed in “The People v. O.J. Simpson”.
“I don’t think those parts were accurate,” she says. “I think our ages were off and our looks were off. [Also the show] said [O.J.] tried to kill himself in my bedroom, and it was Khloe’s bedroom, not my bedroom.”
