Playing Selena Gomez Weighs in on Taylor Swift-Kimye Drama: 'There Are More Important Things to Talk About'

Selena Gomez took to Twitter on Sunday night to weigh in on BFF Taylor Swift's rekindled feud with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

After Sunday’s episode of KUWTK, Kardashian took to Snapchat to share a series of clips showing her husband's conversation with Swift from months ago, while the rapper was writing and recording the song "Famous," in which he appears to get the 1989 singer's blessing regarding certain lyrics that the two have since feuded over.

"There are more important things to talk about," Gomez tweeted minutes after the clips were posted and the hashtag #KimExposedTaylorParty began trending on Twitter. "Why can't people use their voice for something that f**king matters?"

"Truth is last thing we need right now is hate, in any form," Gomez added in a series of posts. "This industry is so disappointing yet the most influential smh."

The lyric in question -- "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? Because I made that b**ch famous" -- became a heated he-said/she-said conflict between West and Swift after his album, The Life of Pablo, dropped.

The "Shake It Off" singer's rep previously confirmed that West did call Swift, but to ask her to release the single on her Twitter account, not for her approval. Swift’s reps say she was never made aware of the lyric, 'I made that b**ch famous.'"

Swift addressed the release of the clips in a statement posted to Instagram, calling the videos "character assassination."

"Where is the video of Kanye telling me he was going to call me 'that bitch' in his song? It doesn't exist because it never happened," Taylor claims. "You don't get to control someone's emotional response to being called 'that bitch' in front of the entire world."

"That moment when Kanye West secretly records your phone call, then Kim posts it on the Internet," Swift wrote alongside the statement posted to all of her social media pages.

Katy Perry, who has long had a rumored feud with Swift, used the drama as an opportunity to promote her new single, "Rise."

"#RISE above it all," Perry tweeted, along with a link to buy the song on iTunes.
