Taylor Swift has responded to footage released by Kim Kardashian that seems to show her giving approval to Kanye West for his references to her on "Famous." In the song, Kanye says, For all my south side n****s that know me best/ I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ I made that bitch famous/ I made that bitch famous. In the note, Swift writes she never gave approval to be called "a bitch," that she never actually got to hear the song before it was released, and also claims that the footage was taken "secretly."

In her Grammys speech earlier this year, Swift seemingly responded to the lyrics, saying, “I want to say to all the young women out there...there will be people along the way who will try to undercut your success, or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame. But if you just focus on the work and you don't let those people sidetrack you, someday when you get where you're going, you'll look around and you'll know that it was you and the people who love you who put you there and that will be the greatest feeling in the world.”

Reps for Taylor Swift and Kanye West were not immediately available for comment.
