Taylor Swift Keeps Framed Photo of Kanye West Crashing VMAs Speech in Her House
Taylor Swift just can’t let it go, man.
The singer actually keeps a framed photo of rapper Kanye West stagebombing her, crashing her acceptance speech for Best Female Video at the 2009 Grammys hanging in her Nashville home.
Remember, Yeezy felt Beyonce was more deserving of the award, since, you know, his opinion on such matters is critical. He let the whole world know and stole Swift’s moment.
Perhaps he should have spent less time on planning his attack on Swift and more on coming up with a better hairstyle.
But back to T. Swizzle and her framed artifact. Why does she keep such a negative and long-ago incident in the forefront of her mind and in front of her eyes? Like drop it already. It’s like a crime scene photo. You don’t keep looking at it, you bury it.
The information about this photo was revealed in her Vanity Fair cover story, the interview of which took place at Swizzle’s crib. The writer made note of such a key details, which we find highly interesting. That’s the same interview where she christened jokesters Amy Poehler and Tina Fey denizens of hell and authorized someone to speak about her split with Harry Styles of One Direction. This feature is revealing more about Swift at every turn.
We get that the photo is likely meant to be motivational, like those photos of people with no legs climbing mountains that also feature inspirational quotes, and to remind her of ascent to the top of the charts.
But the incident was such a blight on Swift’s night and such huge news that it catapulted West onto President Obama’s radar, with the commander-in-chief deeming ‘Ye a “jacka—” for his actions. We know both the rapper and the prez are from Chicago, so Barry was probably aware of Yeezy beforehand; but to have the leader of the free world refer to him as a fool for his affront to Swift was a big deal. In essence, Obama had T. Swizzle’s back.
Isn’t that enough?
Let it go, Tay. Let it go.
West apologized. You wore one of his designs in a magazine spread and we thought you were being the bigger person! We though this shizzle was O-V-E-R.
Can these two just duet already? Swift likes rap. Yeezy has collaborated with Katy Perry, so he can go toe-to-toe with pop starlets.
