Deputy Style Editor at People Magazine Sharon Clott Kanter called in after the 2016 MTV VMAs to talk about her favorite red carpet look, the moment backstage that melted hearts and Republic Records’ After Party at Vandal in New York City.

Taylor Swift came out and said her phone conversation with Kanye West was secretly recorded. The video was posted to Kim Kardashian’s Snapchat page and depicts West and Swift discussing at least one line of his song “Famous,” in which he mentions Taylor. So can she sue Kim and Kanye for recording the call and posting the footage? We asked Attorney Reid Breitman what the laws in California state.

The latest chapter in the bizarre um… narrative… that is the Taylor Swift/Kanye West feud played out through a reality TV show and social networks on Sunday night.

And as we’ve learned through both a magazine interview and TMZ report: lawyers on at least one side of the debacle are now involved.

Back in February, Kanye West released the song “Famous” from his album, “The Life Of Pablo.” In it he raps, “For all my Southside n—-s that know me best I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that b—h famous.”

Through a representative, Swift refuted West’s claim that he had received approval from the “Shake It Off” singer for the song. She took things a step further during her GRAMMY Acceptance Speech for “Album Of The Year.”

“I want to say to all the young woman out there: There will be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments, your fame,” she said. “But if you just focus on the work and you don’t let those people sidetrack you, someday when you get to where you’re going, you’ll look around and you will know it was you and that will be the greatest feeling in the world.”

You could say Swift sang a much different tune in newly released footage, which Kim Kardashian West uploaded to Snapchat on Sunday night, following the conclusion of “Keeping Up The The Kardashians.” The video shows Kanye talking with Swift on speakerphone. West recites the lyric of them having sex.

“I’m like this close to overexposure,” Swift replies. In a way this line provides a peak behind the curtain of fame and perhaps offers the most telling point of their conversation: Swift’s initial concern centered on coverage, not vulgarity.

“I mean it’s like a compliment kind of,” she adds when West retorts that this mention would be “a cool thing to have.” “TLOP” was certainly a special album for West in that he decided to premiere it during his fashion show at Madison Square Garden, exclusively stream it on Tidal and then continuously change and alter the tracks to his liking even after the LP’s release.

“I mean, go with whatever line you think is better,” Swift tells him. “It’s obviously very tongue in cheek either way. And I really appreciate you telling me about it, that’s really nice!”

The video demonstrates that West not only went out of his way to seek Swift’s approval but even offered an alternative to the line. You could probably not say the same for the thinly-veiled and not-so-thinly-veiled songs Swift has written that were allegedly about others over the years.

At no point during the uploaded portion of the conversation did West run the b-word by Swift, which she touched on when responding to the video.

“You don’t get to control someone’s emotional response to being called ‘that b—h’ in front of the entire world,” she stated in an Instagram post. “Of course I wanted to like the song…being falsely painted as a liar when I was never given the full story or played any part of the song is character assassination.

“I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative, one that I have never asked to be a part of, since 2009.”

Kardashian West revealed to GQ that Swift’s lawyers already fired off what amounted to a cease-and-desist letter. TMZ reports that the call was recorded in California, which would determine what if any legal recourse Swift could take regarding the recording.

Bottom line: the narrative is far from its conclusion.

The soap opera that is Taylor Swift and Kanye West took yet another turn Monday night, and of course it centered on an award show.

This all began in 2009 at the MTV Video Music Awards and we thought that at last year’s GRAMMYs, bygones were bygones. During the commercial break, Swift and West along with his wife Kim Kardashian were chatting and posing for photos. Soon after, the “Shake It Off” singer and Renaissance man were having dinner together at famed New York City hotspot The Spotted Pig.

And of course, in a moment that could only be scripted by MTV, Swift introduced West at this past year’s VMAs where the rapper offered a rather rambling monologue that concluded with his announcement to run in the 2020 Presidential Election.

Swift took to Instagram after the show, where she posted a photo of flowers that West sent her captioned, “KanTay2020.”

It looks like there is no hope for that ticket’s future.

Where did things go awry? The only moment we can point to is the release of Kanye’s latest album, “The Life Of Pablo.” Streaming exclusively on the music service Tidal, it has made headlines with a track called “Famous” featuring Rihanna and Swizz Beatz.

“I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex,” wraps Yeezy. “Why? I made that b—- famous. I made that b—- famous.”

Swift does not concur.

At Monday night’s GRAMMYs, the Pennsylvania-born pop star took home three gramophones including the coveted “Album Of The Year” thanks to “1989.” Accepting the award with all of the LP’s producers standing behind her, Swift issued a not-so-subtle swipe back at West’s claim.

“As the first woman to win ‘Album of the Year’ at the GRAMMYs twice, I want to say to all the young woman out there: There will be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments, your fame,” she said.

“But if you just focus on the work and you don’t let those people sidetrack you, someday when you get to where you’re going, you’ll look around and you will know it was you,” Swift continued, “and that will be the greatest feeling in the world.”

Kanye returned to Twitter in the early hours of Tuesday morning. Instead of addressing Swift directly, he talked about his struggle in the fashion world, particularly when it comes to funding his endeavors. Later in the day, he issued a rather random rant on the cost of education in our country and how he feels it needs to be lowered.

“I’d rather teachers got paid more and books cost less,” he tweeted.

Sounds like West has a platform or two to run on. And he might just seek election after all; the tweet ended with the hashtag #2020.
