Kanye West has taken aim at pop beauty Taylor Swift in a track on his latest album. The rapper staged a fashion and music spectacular at New York's Madison Square Garden on Thursday, where models including Naomi Campbell and Alek Wek showed off his new collection to a soundtrack of his long-awaited Life of Pablo LP.
Kanye West slams Taylor Swift
Plenty of his lyrics shocked the audience, with one particularly scathing line making reference to his past feud with the 'Love Story' singer, who had two of her best friends in the audience. In the track, Kanye - who famously interrupted the 'Shake It Off' pop star when she won Best Female Video at the 2009 MTV VMAs, igniting a feud which had ended last year - rapped: "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex.
"Why? I made that bitch famous."We thought they'd kissed and made up already? He also called out Kim Kardashian's ex Ray J, rapping on another track: "I bet me and Ray J would be friends / If we ain't love the same b**ch. "He might have hit it first / Only problem is I'm rich / Uh, 21 grams superstar family / We the new Jacksons and Momma 'bout that action / I'm about that fair time.
"The Kardashian-Jenners were naturally out in force with Kim, who was sporting a peroxide blonde wig, Kris Jenner, step-father Caitlyn Jenner, two-year-old North and siblings Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall and Kylie Jenner all there and all dressed in white.
The family were seen dancing and singing along excitedly to the tracks, fulfilling Kanye's request at the beginning of the show.He had said: "Feel free to dance and cheer!"
"The event also marked the first public appearance of Khloe's estranged husband Lamar Odom since his near-fatal collapse last October. The basketball player walked into the arena to cheers and was personally shown to his seat by the 38-year-old rapper. Also in attendance for the show were Jaden Smith, Jay Z, Anna Wintour, 50 Cent, Lil Kim, Jennifer Hudson and Karlie Kloss. Merchandise on sale at the event included T-shirts in tribute to Kim's late father Robert Kardashian and Kanye's late mother Donda West.
