Taylor Swift says Kanye West is “two-faced” while sympathizing with Drake in recent Rolling Stone interview.
The old Taylor can’t come to the phone right now, she grew a spine. The singer is not just topping charts all over the world, she’s taking a stand for herself and finally speaking out. If you’re one of the thousands who have wronged Taylor Swift, be sure she’s coming for you with her own side of the story.
The singer had a pretty honest interview with Rolling Stone magazine where she opened up about her growth in the music industry. According to her, she’s gotten to the point where she can’t keep quiet and let things slide (because she always gets blamed) she’d rather just speak out. Opinions be damned.
Taylor in the interview, told her side of the incident which happened two summers ago. She had gotten upset by a certain lyric in Kanye‘s Famous song where he calls her a b**ch. West‘s wife, Kim took to Snapchat to reveal a conversation between her husband and the singer where she gave her permission to the song. But the recording doesn’t play the part which got the singer upset.
Taylor now reveals that the rapper keeps coming to apologize to her each time he wrongs her publicly. According to her, she “got really sick of the dynamic between he and I. And that wasn’t just based on what happened on that phone call and with that song — it was kind of a chain reaction of things.”
She says because she wanted the rapper’s approval after the 2009 MTV VMAs incident, she accepted his olive branches. According to her, he reached out a few weeks before the 2015 VMAs asking her to present his vanguard award to him.
“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. 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 shit.”
She also revealed the rapper sent her a bouquet of flowers to apologize the next day. That later on led to the Famous encounter. She also says she was touched when he called her about the song, but was done with the friendship when she heard its full lyrics. Referring to Drake‘s story, she said;
“And then he literally did the same thing to Drake. He gravely affected the trajectory of Drake’s family and their lives. It’s the same thing. Getting close to you, earning your trust, detonating you. I really don’t want to talk about it anymore because I get worked up, and I don’t want to just talk about negative shit all day, but it’s the same thing.”
