Proof Kanye West Definitely Did Not Make Taylor Swift 'Famous'

7 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Kanye West doesn't have a filter when it comes to sharing his opinion on anything - especially Taylor Swift. The rapper mentions Swift in "Famous," the fourth track off The Life of Pablo, his seventh studio album, which he debuted on Thursday. In it, he claims to be the reason for Swift's super-fast climb to stardom. Although West defended the song, tweeting how the "Blank Space" singer thought his shout-out was "hilarious" (per a past phone conversation), the lyric still struck a chord with fans, friends and family members of the pop star. Is Yeezy really the reason behind Swift's mega-success? »

Watch La Lakers vs Cleveland Cavaliers Online Free Espn Live Streaming La vs Cavs Game NBA Basketball 2016

Tonight's Los Angeles Lakers vs Cleveland Cavaliers game on Espn sports TV and Watch ESPN3 live streaming will pit Kobe Bryant against LeBron James for the second-to-last time in the NBA.

Cleveland (37-14) is 7-3 under their new coach Tyronn Lue, a former La Laker. Lue continues to reshape the Cavs into his vision and thus far that has meant some monster games from both LeBron James and Kyrie Irving, the team's two biggest stars.

When we watch the Cavs game live streaming or on TV tonight, Cleveland will be seeking their third straight win following a one-point loss to the Celtics three games ago. »
