Kanye West slammed Taylor Swift during his Saint Pablo Tour show in Nashville.

The 39-year-old rapper has had an ongoing feud with the Bad Blood hitmaker since he interrupted her speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards and when he took to the stage at the Bridgestone Arena over the weekend he took the opportunity to blast the pop star, leading the crowd in a chant of "f*** Taylor Swift".

During his performance of Famous - his recent track which caused uproar earlier this year when Taylor claimed she didn't give Kanye permission to include the lyrics "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. I made that b**** famous' - Kanye urged the crowd to repeat the line back to him three times.

Speaking at the gig in Taylor's hometown, Kanye - who has three-year-old daughter North and nine-month-old son Saint - said: "I need to hear that loud in Nashville.

I need to hear that so loud in Nashville."

And Kanye - who recorded a phone call with Taylor in which she gave him permission to include the controversial lyric, a recording which his wife Kim Kardashian West released online - has admitted he was warned by a number of people to take out the words relating to Taylor, 26, but went against the advice to "play it safe".

He said: "So many people told me, 'You've gotta take that line out of the song. You gotta play it safe.' This is what rap music is; this is what art is. This song is how I feel."
