Inn 2009 the rapper Kanye West slighted the singer Taylor Swift when he claimed she was underserving of a MTV Video Music Award he felt should have been given to Beyonce.
In 2015 their relationship sits on higher ground but Taylor has now revealed that it wouldn’t have reached that point if West hadn’t show her some r.e.s.p.e.c.t.
Full story below…
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.
