The greatest mystery of our time, i.e. the real story behind Kanye West‘s The Life of Pablo centerpiece “Famous,” rages on. In a fresh clip from this Sunday’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim Kardashian opens up a bit more about Taylor Swift‘s alleged reluctance to admit the truth. Speaking with her sister Kourtney whilst resting on a couch you likely can’t find at IKEA, Kim also expressed her outrage at those who have blindly criticized Kanye’s every move since that whole VMAs thing.

I just felt like I wanted to defend him in it because it’s like, she legitimately quote says, ‘As soon as I get on that Grammy red carpet I’m gonna tell all the press. Like I was in on it.'” According to Kim, Taylor actually had very different plans in mind.
“[It was] just another way to play the victim,” Kim said. “It definitely got her a lot of attention the first time.” That “first time,” of course, was when Kanye reminded everyone that Beyoncé did in fact have the best video of 2008. “It wasn’t meant to be personal,” Kim added. “It could have been anyone. We all know ‘Single Ladies’ was the biggest song of the year. So when she didn’t win, he just wanted to stand up for her.”

The visual, inspired by the Vincent Desiderio painting Sleep, features hella realistic simulations of the sleeping bodies of Swift, Amber Rose, Donald Trump, George W. Bush, and more.
Sadly, the video ultimately omitted one very special guest from that massive bed:
