Gigi Hadid has distanced herself from the controversy surrounding Kanye West's rap about sex with Taylor Swift.

The supermodel was in attendance at Kanye's New York Fashion Week show on Thursday (11 February), where he debuted a new track called 'Famous' with reference to Taylor.

It included the lyrics: "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous."

It's a reference to *that* infamous moment at the MTV Video Music Awards 2009 when Kanye interrupted Taylor's acceptance speech to say Beyonce should have won.

But keen to ensure nobody thought she approved of Kanye's lyrics, model Gigi tweeted: "My attendance somewhere does not mean I agree with everything being said in the music playing there. My friends know of my loyalty."

Gigi and Taylor are close friends, frequently pictured together around the world. Gigi also had a starring role in Taylor's celebrity-studded 'Bad Blood' music video.

She told E! News at the time: "For [Taylor] it was really a way to show that she supports her friends so much and that we support her back. We all took time out of our schedules to be there and she wanted to make us look hot and powerful. It was a big, amazing thing to be a part of."

Gigi also told Elle: "Through the industry you meet some of your best friends. It's really cool that I live in a generation where we are supporting each other. It's becoming cool to be nice and to support the girls that you're in the industry with. We really want to be the group of friends and the group of girls that really pick each other up. We aren't there to compete. We're more happy for each person as they grow and succeed on their own path."

Meanwhile, Taylor's brother Austin has also slammed Kanye's lyrics, showing his disgust by binning a pair of Yeezys.
