Taylor Swift and Kanye West were once sworn enemies, but things have changed since he grabbed the mic from the pop star at the 2009 VMA acceptance speech. Taylor tells Vanity Fair how she came to be friend with the controversial rapper.
“I feel like I wasn’t ready to be friends with [West] until I felt like he had some sort of respect for me, and he wasn’t ready to be friends with me until he had some sort of respect for me—so it was the same issue, and we both reached the same place at the same time. I became friends with Jay Z, and I think it was important, for Jay Z, for Kanye and I to get along. . . . And then Kanye and I both reached a place where he would say really nice things about my music and what I’ve accomplished, and I could ask him how his kid’s doing.”
And no she doesn’t care if one of her friends dates an ex (we’re looking at Gigi Hadid and Joe Jonas). “We even have girls in our group who have dated the same people. It’s almost like the sisterhood has such a higher place on the list of priorities for us. It’s so much more important than some guy that it didn’t work out with.” She continued, “When you’ve got this group of girls who need each other as much as we need each other, in this climate, when it’s so hard for women to be understood and portrayed the right way in the media…now more than ever we need to be good and kind to each other and not judge each other—and just because you have the same taste in men, we don’t hold that against each other.”
I might not be progressive enough for this one…I don’t think I would be cool with my friend dating my ex or mt ex dating my friend. AWKWARD! Find some new boys!
