You read that right! Taylor Swift has made her public statement on the full-length phone call between herself and Kanye West that leaked on Saturday evening. Their 2016 conversation had West seeking permission from Swift to reference her in a then-new track titled "Famous" for his upcoming Life of Pablo album. Swift claimed she never gave her stamp of approval on the lyric calling her "that b*tch" - and although West's wife Kim Kardashian released a video of their seemingly mutual agreement, the world now knows that Swift's claims were true, and that the Kardashian/West segment was doctored.

And, even though Swift was seen liking fan posts regarding the matter over the weekend (lovingly known as "Taylurking"), she stayed silent until early this Monday evening.

"Instead of answering those who are asking how I feel about the video footage that leaked, proving that I was telling the truth the whole time about that call (you know, the one that was illegally recorded, that somebody edited and manipulated in order to frame me and put me, my family, and fans through hell for 4 years)...SWIPE UP to see what really matters."

Swift's call-to-action linked out to a donation page for the Feeding America charity, in which "every dollar you give helps provide at least 10 meals to families in need" through their national network of food banks. In addition to this notable cause, Taylor's next 'Story' slide provided the name of another worthy cause.

"The World Health Organization and Feeding America are some of the organizations I've been donating to. If you have the ability to, please join me in donating during this crisis." This final message included another "swipe up" to The WHO.

Her March 23rd update comes just eight days after Swift broke her silence on the COVID-19 global pandemic via the same medium.

"Guys, I follow you online and I love you guys so much," she wrote last Sunday. "[I] need to express my concern that things aren't being taken seriously enough right now. I'm seeing lots of get togethers and hangs and parties happening. This is the time to cancel plans, actually, truly isolate as much as you can, and don't assume that because you don't feel sick that you aren't possibly passing something on to someone elderly or vulnerable to this."

Swift was set to headline Capital One's JamFest in Atlanta next month, but the concert series joined the list of scrapped events that have canceled due to the coronavirus crisis. This was her only show in the United States outside of her two "Lover Fest" dates slated for later this summer. All other stops are booked across Europe with one show in South America.

As far as the fate of her impending six-week world tour, Swift or her representatives have not made any mention of cancelation or postponement at this time.
