Kanye West is doing big things with "Famous."

The rapper will be debuting the music video for his song, fresh off of The Life of Pablo, during a big event Friday at the Forum in California. Tickets are going for $25 and are available on Ticketmaster starting at 10 a.m. PT. But if you're not in the area or can't make the affair for another reason, don't worry! Yeezy will be live-streaming the event on Tidal for members and non-members, so everyone will get a taste of Kanye's fame.

Friday's event will be similar to Kanye's release of his latest album at Madison Square Garden in February. Tidal will also hold the exclusive on the music video, which will be held for one week. Fans are probably itching to see the video for the song, which has become famous (pun intended) for its Taylor Swift-insulting lyric: "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous."

Shortly after the song was released, Swift restarted her feud with Kanye and claimed he never asked her for permission. He continues to say other wise, and the two have been going back-and-forth ever since the song was released. There was no saying what the truth of the situation was, but Kim Kardashian weighed in on the situation in the latest issue of GQ where she called out T. Swift.

"She totally knew that ["Famous"] was coming out. She wanted to all of a sudden act like she didn't," Kim told GQ of Swift's reaction to the song. In fact, the reality star says there's "video proof" of Kanye's phone call with the singer, who "totally approved that [line]."

She also said the "Style" songstress was using the opportunity to "play the victim" even though she was in on it from the start.

"I swear, my husband gets so much s--t for things [when] he really was doing proper protocol and even called to get it approved," Kim said. "What rapper would call a girl that he was rapping a line about to get approval?"

She added, "Rick Rubin was there. So many respected people in the music business heard that [conversation] and knew."

Kim still doesn't understand why Swift changed her tune. "I don't know why she just, you know, flipped all of a sudden…It was funny because [on the call] she 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.'"

As time would tell, that is not what happened. "I'm like, wait, but [in] your Grammy speech, you completely dissed my husband just to play the victim again," she said.

The couple hasn't interacted with Swift since the Grammys, but the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star did say there might have been some legal interaction. "Maybe an attorney's letter she sent saying, 'Don't ever let that footage come out of me saying that. Destroy it,'" Kim said of Swift.
