Kanye West brought his Saint Pablo Tour to the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee over the weekend, and he didn't waste any time in sending Taylor Swift a message. Swift is originally from Pennsylvania, but moved to Nashville at 14 when she wanted to pursue a career in country music, so she has deep connections to the city. Kanye decided to perform his Swift-baiting song "Famous" three times during his concert there.
"So many people told me, 'You've got to take that line out of the song. You got to play it safe, but this is what rap music is," he says. "This is what art is. Saying how you feel. And this song is how I feel." The crowd, obviously riled up by the whole situation, started chanting "Fuck Taylor Swift" in unison, to which Kanye reportedly responded "I need to hear that loud, Nashville."
This moment marks just the latest salvo in a long, often bitter war between Kanye and Swift. His interruption of her at the 2009 VMAs was obviously the setting-off point, but the feud has dragged on for years now. The most recent drama came when Kim Kardashian revealed that Kanye had in fact called Swift to tell her about the lyrics to "Famous" before it was released, a fact that contradicted her earlier statements. Clearly their relationship is far from healed, and "Famous" continues to be a major point of contention between the two, something Kanye obviously knew when he performed the song multiple times in her adopted hometown.
