Pop singer Taylor Swift spilled the tea about her side of the infamous Kanye West feud – calling the rapper’s handling of the situation “two-faced.”
“I realized he is so two-faced. That he wants to be nice to me behind the scenes, but then he wants to look cool, get up in front of everyone and talk sh*t. And I was so upset,” she said during an interview with Rolling Stone.
Taylor and Kanye made headlines when he hopped on stage while she was accepting her VMA award, to say that Beyonce was more worthy. As the world turned on Ye, his wife, Kim Kardashian aired Taylor out – exposing her as a liar.
“When someone doesn’t respect you so loudly and says you literally don’t deserve to be here — I just so badly wanted that respect from him, and I hate that about myself, that I was like, ‘This guy who’s antagonizing me, I just want his approval.’ But that’s where I was,” she continued.
She then explained the incident in which his wife Kim recorded Taylor having a conversation with Swift after the fact:
“He called me up, maybe a week or so before the event, and we had maybe over an hour-long conversation, and he’s like, ‘I really, really would like for you to present this Vanguard Award to me, this would mean so much to me,’ and went into all the reasons why it means so much, because he can be so sweet. He can be the sweetest. And I was so stoked that he asked me that.”
“And so I wrote this speech up, and then we get to the VMAs, and I make this speech, and he screams, ‘MTV got Taylor Swift up here to present me this award for ratings! And I’m standing in the audience with my arm around his wife, and this chill ran through my body,” she explained.
She then says that Kanye tried to put things right. She claims the rapper sent flowers and they agreed to start over and leave their issues in the past.
Swift accepted the call from West regarding the lyrics about her in his soon-to-be-released song “Famous”- but he switched it up on her and added the line – “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex, Why? I made that b*tch famous.”
“So when he gets on the phone with me, and I was so touched that he would be respectful and, like, tell me about this one line in the song. And I was like, ‘OK, good. We’re back on good terms.’ And then when I heard the song, I was like, ‘I’m done with this. If you want to be on bad terms, let’s be on bad terms, but just be real about it,'” she added.
