Kanye West takes swipe at Taylor Swift as he claims he’s being 'more helpful than harmful'

Kanye West takes swipe at Taylor Swift as he claims he’s being 'more helpful than harmful'

The rapper has addressed their musical feud once again

Kanye West has once again made an official - and pretty lengthy - statement acknowledging his 'feud' against fellow musician Taylor Swift.

Just yesterday, it was reported that the rap star had been 'kicked out' of last weekend's Super Bowl extravaganza by the 'Anti-Hero' singer, after he was rumoured to have bought seats directly in front of her and wanted to block footage.

Despite the 'Stronger' rapper subsequently denying claims he and wife Bianca Censori had been removed from the NFL championship, the turbulent history between the two chart-toppers is undeniable.

In fact, it's almost been 15 years since their very public dispute first came to be, when 19-year-old up-and-coming singer-songwriter Taylor was honoured with an MTV Video Music Award for the Best Female Video.

Taking to the stage to accept her award, however, she was rudely interrupted by Kanye, who told viewers at home at Beyonce should have won the coveted accolade instead, leaving a very clearly flustered Taylor red-faced and embarrassed.

Grabbing the mic from her, he yelled: "Yo Taylor, I’m really happy for you, I’ll let you finish. But Beyoncé has one of the best videos of all time!".

Since then, their quarrel has rumbled on, with Kanye continuing to slam the country music star in the lyrics of his songs.

He went on to include a naked lookalike model of her in one of his videos and record and release their phonecalls, causing Taylor to fear 'a career death'.

Speaking about their clash, Taylor, 34, told press last year: "Make no mistake, my career was taken away from me."

But by the sounds of it, Kanye isn't finished in his alleged attempt to come after the star, proclaiming in a brand new statement that he'd been 'more helpful' to her career 'than good'.

Taking to Instagram, the father-of-five shared a screengrab of a 'Swifty's' Twitter post - which urged users to stream Beyoncé's new track 'Texas Hold 'em' in order to keep Kanye's latest hit 'Vultures' out the Billboard charts.

"When I said that I'm the new Jesus b***h I wasn’t even thinking about Taylor Swift," Kanye he penned in all-caps in the caption.

"That was a whole line before but I appreciate the free promo. Lil Wayne actually mentions [Taylor's sportsman boyfriend] Travis Kelce on vultures 2. This album is actually super positive and fun it’s all about triumphant."

Diverting temporarily from Taylor to discuss how challenging his life has been since being 'cancelled' for making a series of anti-semitic comments, he circled back to heap apparent praise onto the 'Blank Space' singer.

"Remember I was on Taylor's side when Scooter bought her masters behind her back," he continued. "She and Beyoncé are big inspirations to all musicians we always say how both sell out tours and movies.

Kanye addressed the feud on social media.

"Also, I’m sure I’ve been far more helpful to Taylor Swift’s career than harmful. To all Taylor swift fans I am not your enemy uuum im not your friend either though lol."

Going on to address rumours of his removal from Las Vegas' Allegiant Stadium on Sunday evening, Kanye continued: "Also I didn’t get kicked out of the Super Bowl we left our seats to go to YG’s box and see different friends.

"My wife had never been to a Super Bowl so I wanted to walk around and have a nice time we had such a fun day."

TYLA has contacted Kanye and Taylor's representatives for comment.
