The trio have been locked in a bitter feud about the track
Selena Gomez appeared to take a very public swipe at Kim Kardashian today after she posted video footage of Kanye speaking to Taylor Swift about his track Famous.
On Sunday night the 35-year-old reality star posted a string of SnapChats that appeared to show a video of Kanye on the phone to Taylor as they discussed his hit.
And shortly after, Taylor's best pal Selena launched into a VERY angry Twitter rant, appearing to address the feud in a string of messages.
She wrote: "There are more important things to talk about... Why can't people use their voice for something that f***ing matters?
Truth is last thing we need right now is hate, in any form

This industry is so disappointing yet the most influential smh

"Truth is last thing we need right now is hate,in any form
"This industry is so disappointing yet the most influential smh."
A fan then responded, accusing the star of not using the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter to support the cause, to which Selena hit back: "oh lol so that means if I hashtag something I save lives? No -I could give two f***s about 'sides'. You don't know what I do."
And it comes after Kim's huge dressing down of Taylor shortly before, as she posted a shock video of Kanye appearing to speak on her phone to her
In the video Kanye, on speaker-phone to someone that sounds like Swift, can be heard initially asking if she was on the same "Nashville number" before reading out the controversial lyrics: "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex."
Kanye then tells her "I mean it's like a compliment" before insisting her feelings are his priority when it comes to his music: "What I give a f*** about is just you as a person and as a friend, I want things that make you feel good I don't want to do rap that makes people feel bad"

Reacting to the track, Taylor can then be heard saying: "Go with whatever line you think is better. It's obviously very tongue in cheek either way. And I really appreciate you telling me about it, that's really nice!" She adds: "I'm really glad you had the respect to call me that and tell me that as a friend, about the song."
Taylor slammed the rapper over the content of the lyrics when the song was released earlier in the year and denied she had heard the track before it's release.
At the time a rep for the singer said: "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 b**** famous.'"
She later appeared to reference the song at the Grammy Awards.
Speaking to GQ Magazine earlier this summer Kim once again insisted the song had been approved and claimed Taylor had threatened the rapper with a lawsuit if footage of the phone conversation wasn't destroyed.
|Taylor was not happy|
"She totally approved that," she said. "She totally knew that was coming out. She wanted to all of a sudden act like she didn't. I swear, my husband gets so much s--- for things [when] he really was doing proper protocol and even called to get it approved."
"It was funny because [on the call with Kanye, Taylor] said, 'When I get on the Grammy red carpet, all the media is going to think that I'm so against this, and I'll just laugh and say, 'The joke's on you, guys. I was in on it the whole time.'
"And I'm like, wait, but [in] your Grammy speech, you completely dissed my husband just to play the victim again."
|Taylor fires back at Kim's comment|
After the GQ interview Taylor's spokesperson confirmed she had spoken to Kanye on the phone and he had asked her to release the song on her Twitter account.
However, the 26-year-old star declined and never approved the track as he didn't play it for her.
The statement continued: "Kanye West and Taylor only spoke once on the phone while she was on vacation with her family in January of 2016 and they have never spoken since. Taylor has never denied that conversation took place.
"It was on that phone call that Kanye West also asked her to release the song on her Twitter account, which she declined to do. Kanye West never told Taylor he was going to use the term, 'that bitch' in referencing her. A song cannot be approved if it was never heard. Kanye West never played the song for Taylor Swift."
When she finally heard the song, the Shake it Off singer was left "humiliated".
The statement concluded: "Taylor heard it for the first time when everyone else did and was humiliated. Kim Kardashian's claim that Taylor and her team were aware of being recorded is not true, and Taylor cannot understand why Kanye West, and now Kim Kardashian, will not just leave her alone."
