Kevin Winter/MTV1415/Getty Images For MTVLooks like the feud between Kanye West and Taylor Swift is on again. 

Thursday, the rapper unveiled his latest album, The Life of Pablo, at a lavish combination listening party and fashion show at New York City's Madison Square Garden. In one of the new tracks, "Famous," Kanye says, "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/I made that b**** famous."

When word of the track got out, Taylor's brother Austin posted a video clip to Instagram of him throwing a pair of Kanye's Yeezy sneakers into the garbage.  "Getting a head start on some spring cleaning," he writes.  "Here we go again."

Late Thursday, TMZ reported that Kanye had called Taylor in advance to tell her about the lyric, but a rep for Swift says that's not true.

"Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single 'Famous' on her Twitter account," the rep said in a statement. "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 b***** famous.'"


Getting a head start on some spring cleaning. Here we go again.

The Recording AcademyLady Gaga, Adele and Taylor Swift will all be taking the stage at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards Monday night. The ceremony’s executive producer, Ken Ehrlich, tells ABC Radio we can expect each performance to contribute something unique to the show.

Without giving too much away, he describes Gaga’s David Bowie tribute as “meaningful” and “eclectic.” He says Gaga will be singing more than one song and has been working closely with the musical director of the segment, frequent Bowie collaborator Nile Rodgers.

“It'll be fitting for David,” Ken says. “It'll be meaningful. But, you know, David was eclectic, David was a character. So, you know, you can say the same thing about Lady Gaga and that's what we expect it'll be.”

Adele’s performance, meanwhile, will be all about simplicity. For her first Grammy performance in four years, Ken says the focus will be on her stellar vocals.

“Adele's just a complete artist; she's a complete performer,” he says. “…We need to be able to feature her -- both vocally and this persona that she presents that's just so real. So this is gonna be an intimate performance, it's gonna be something that we haven't done with her before, but we're really excited about it 'cause the whole arena is gonna be focused in on Adele.”

But first, all eyes will be on Taylor -- her performance is opening the show. The seven-time nominee previously kicked off the Grammy ceremony in 2013, with a performance of "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together." This time around, her song of choice will be a surprise.

“I don't know if we've talked about what the song is or not. I don't think we have and I'd rather not give it away,” Ken says. “But she is gonna blow it out and it's gonna rock the house.” 

The Grammy Awards air live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles Monday, February 15 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
