She by no means lied or was a “snake.”

The two stars have had a tumultuous friendship through the years, with West infamously interrupting Swift’s speech on the 2009 MTV VMAs.
In an interview with Rolling Stone final yr, Swift mentioned she’d “done” with the rapper after considering that they had overcome their rift. “I started to feel like we reconnected, which felt great for me because all I ever wanted my whole career after that thing happened in 2009 was for him to respect me,” she mentioned.
Explaining that the pair would go for dinner collectively, she added: “It just felt like I was healing some childhood rejection or something from when I was 19.”
But, when West requested her to current him with the Video Vanguard Award on the 2015 MTV VMAs, one other incident brought about her to assume twice about their friendship. “I was so stoked that he asked me that,” she mentioned. “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 continued: “I realised 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. And I was so upset.”
Swift mentioned the drama across the lyric West included in ‘Famous’ in the identical interview in addition to the footage of her phone call with West and Kim Kardashian during which she appeared to approve it. “The world didn’t understand the context and the events that led up to it,” Swift mentioned. “Because nothing ever just happens like that without some lead-up. Some events took place to cause me to be pissed off when [West] called me a bitch.”
The pop star added that when she heard the music she thought: “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.”
In a four-star review of Swift’s last album, NME said: “To call ‘Lover’ a comeback feels like a reach considering that ‘Reputation’, her lowest-selling album to date, still went triple Platinum in the US. So let’s just say that the old Taylor can’t come to the phone right now – ‘cause she’s busy writing songs that suit her again.”
