Kanye is referring to the infamous incident in which he interrupted Swift accepting her Best Female Video at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.

According to E! News, supposedly Kanye “informed” Swift about the lyrics, but, according to Swift’s rep, “Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single ‘Famous’ on her Twitter account. She declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message. Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, ‘I made that bitch famous.'”

The offensive line: “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex, Why? I made that bitch famous, God Damn, I made that bitch famous.”
