Kim Kardashian Says She 'Never Publicly' Bad-Mouthed Taylor Swift: 'There Was No Shade'

Waaaait a minute...
Kim Kardashian West covers the new issue of Wonderland magazine, where the reality star seems to downplay the months-long drama that's gone on between she, her husband Kanye West, and Taylor Swift over the 39-year-old rapper's line from the song "Famous" song line, "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / I made that b**ch famous."
Though Kim said in June that Taylor "totally approved" the line, and a month later Snapchatted a phone conversation between Kanye and the 1989 singer that appeared to corroborate at least some of her story, Kim now tells the publication that she has never publicly spoken down on her husband's longtime enemy. Swift, however, noted in an Instagram message about the incident, posted in July, that Kanye never told her he was going to use the phrase "that bitch."
"I never publicly talk bad about people. I still don't feel like I have," Kim explains. "I'm being honest. I'm a fan. I like her music. There was no shade."
Kim adds that, despite not intending any shade toward Taylor, "Girls in her squad hit me up on text," although she would not name any names, saying, "I'm not petty."
Kim's kinder words toward Taylor are not unlike what we've seen from Kanye, who since his infamous 2009 MTV Video Music Awards moment has made up with Taylor (in the form of a gorgeous floral arrangement), then fallen back into squabble, and as recently as last month, tweeted a photo seemingly promoting Taylor's 1989 album.
