Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich denies Taylor Swift had heard Kanye West's 'Famous' before its release

'I misunderstood what she had told me'

Most Popular

UPDATE: Ken's now accepted he 'misunderstood' what Taylor had told him and got a bit mixed up tbh. 

He's said: "Regarding my statement at the Grammys about Taylor, I misunderstood what she had told me. Under the pressure of rehearsals, rather than say that she was aware of the song, I said she had heard a track when in fact she had not and and what she said to me didn't imply that at all."

Her rep's claimed she hadn't heard the misogynistic lyrics featured in Kanye West's track 'Famous' ahead of its release on The Life of Pablo album; but now GRAMMY producer Ken Ehrlich reckons Taylor Swift actually had an 'advance' of the song 'a couple of weeks ago.'

Despite TayTay's people saying she was unaware of the lyric 'I made that bitch famous'' before the shit hit the fan - claiming she'd 'cautioned' him over the songs' message - Ken's now revealed she's 'smart' enough to have heard and even commented on the tune. Hmm.

Chatting to ET, Ken said: "I will tell you this; she came in a couple of weeks ago and she had an advance of the track. So she commented on it in a very funny way. She's smart."

In further news, TMZ's Van Lathan joined Charlamagne Tha God or Andrew Schulz on The Brilliant Idiots show to spill: "Kanye's absolutely right when he said he called Taylor. They spoke about it for a f***ing hour. After there was gonna be a commotion Taylor was supposed to come out and be like 'ah, joke's on you.'

"I'm not telling you what I think, I'm telling you what the f*** I know."

This obviously all echoes 'Ye and his claims TayTay was in on it all along during his Twitter rant the other week. Gah. Check out Van Lathan's claims from the 35 minute mark below, if you're interested.

Oh Yeezus.
