Taylor Swift Talks Kanye (Some More)

| Filed under: Music MinuteKanye WestTaylor Swift

taylor swift felt it was important for her to write a song to kanye west

In an interview with New York Magazine, Taylor Swift opened up about why she wrote a song to Kanye West.

Here's what she had to say:

'I think a lot of people expected me to write a song about [West]. But, for me, it was important to write a song to him. It doesn't really add anything good if I start victimizing myself and complaining about things. Because I'm proud of that performance at the VMAs last year,

..where my fans helped me get through it. And there was a lot that went down backstage that I will always be thankful for, and the fans in the subway know exactly what happened that night. I feel everything. I've never had this thick skin that can't be… It's not like I am bulletproof in any sense of the word.'

We're glad to hear you feel empowered, Taylor. Sounds like you made the right move, bb!

What do U think about Swift's decision to write a song for Kanye?

    "where my fans helped me get through it"……get through what??? what needed to be got through?? ppl are getting beaten, bullied, raped and murdered every day and ur still talking about this teeny tiny incident like it's the scarest thing that has ever happened and like everybody gives a shit??…i'm sorry, i got work to do to pay my bills and mortgage, no time for your teenage drama…

    Doesn't really add anything good if she starts playing the victim?? REALLY? I thought she had been doing that all along throughout her career. She seems like one of those girls that loves the attention she gets from bringing up and talking about all the guys that have hurt her. That's not playing the victim hmm, Taylor?

    Fuck off, he just said what everyone else was thinking.

    Re: jsqtsa

    Thank you. Excellent post.

  10. 10

    Can you imagine if she had a real trauma happen to her. Life is rough huh Taylor?….How about having to endure everyday reality like real people. Boo hoo. Please stop crying about minor high school stuff.

  11. 11

    This buck-toothed bitch needs to STFU and take some writing and vocal lessons.
    And do something with that ratty ass hair while she's at it.

  12. 12

    Shut your trap and grow up.

    She got enough pity-awards (including the fucking Grammy for Album of the Year. Seriously!?) because of it and it jumpstarted her career. She should be kissing Kanye's ass…

  13. 13

    i wish this bytch would shut up about kanye. find a new cause skank!. kanye is a monkey face with monkey lips

  14. 14

    *Your site sucks Perez* Can't even get access to page 2 and can't even read people's comments (which is the best thing about this site) til hours later. WTF?? I know all the news is always extremely late since you have to wait to steal from other blogs, and you're VERY busy kissing celebrity ass, but at least let us read the funny comments the other people post!! /rant

  15. 15

    get the fuck over it taylor. like kathy griffin said, "he didn't rape her for gods sake." she's so self-righteous.

  16. 16

    Kanye is a big mouthed bitch. What he did was deplorable. I'm not a huge fan of hers but if that happened to me, I'd write a song called, "Who the Fuck Asked You're Opinion, Asshole?" or "Go Shit in your Hat, Has Been" and perform THAT at the VMA's.

    This girl needs to shut the fuck up already. Nobody cares.

    Re: Wild-Guitar – "shaking hands"

  19. 19

    what kanye said on stage that night was completely correct. Taylor didnt deserve to win.

    taylor stop milking it for what its worth!

  20. 20

    Re: love_hollywood – If she didn't deserve to win, then how was she the one who won? It was a fan-voted award show. The public voted, and the one with the most votes won…. if people wanted Beyonce or whatever to win, SHE WOULD HAVE WON BUT SHE DIDN'T. Get over it.

  21. 21

    Poor girl I hope she will be ok, she really went through a lot. Incredible she did not break. She should fly to Kosovo, Korea or some central African country and have a press conference or a public speech with a translator and speak about her problems so those people realize how good they really have it.

  22. 22

    She is always whining about some man every time you hear her name. Men seem to float her career. When will she make it on her own. Sick to death of this cry baby.

    Re: jsqtsa

    LOL! Yes!

    Re: CJLOVE23 – Hey stupid ass - if you dont like it don't log in to perezhilton.com. and CREATE a profile. and COMMENT on it.

  25. 25

    Kanye is a jackass for what he did but she needs to SHUT UP about it already. And the song was stupid.

  26. 26

    Jesus Christ shitfuck….it's over already. Kanye boosted her career and took the fucking fall like a man. She should drop this already.

  27. 27

    it was more than a year ago. enough, let it go and move the F*** on. felt sorry for her when it happened and even better she never spoke about it when it happened and you just had to give her credit for it. now she is all over it and it's getting old all my respect is going out the window. STFU about it already…

  28. 28

    Re: jsqtsa – Great post!

  29. 29

    Oh so she DIDN'T want to victimize herself? Huh….could have fooled me!

    Its funny because I was just thinking earlier about her music, and how in these narratives she always seems to create a sort of dichotomy, where she's the innocent victim against some evil bitch type character who steals her boyfriend or something…I can't be the only one to notice this pattern, can I?

  30. SS18 says – reply to this


    But you ARE victimizing yourself because all you talk about is him you stupid rat faced bitch.
    Go back to country land.

    Love you Tay tay.

  32. 32

    OMG she should be thanking kanye for making her shitty self relevant! She has has the face of an ugly rat and can't sing live for shit! You call others fugly when this no talent rodent is this ugly?

  33. 33
  34. barny says – reply to this


    The only reason she wrote this song was because she knew she would get to sing at the awards show.She is an ugly talentless publicity whore and nothing more.

  35. 35

    Taylor, he didn't hit you up side the head with the microphone. Get over it. It's not that serious.

  36. 36

    Excuse me, fucking retards. If a magazine or any media outlet for that matter asks her a questions, she has to answer it. What is she going to say, 'i really dont want to talk about that' then she gets pin pointed as not getting over it and people continue to talk about. She specifically said that she wrote the song to him as a point to get over it. You people are so fucking quick to judge, but if anyone did that to you, you'd be bitching for the rest of your life. AND one more fucking thing, if you say that he is the only reason she is famous, your a dumb fuck. Was she or was she not excepting an award for Best Female Video when it happened. And the CMA awards were even before that. So shut up to all of you fucking haters, you can suck my fucking cock. ;)

  37. 37

    Re: cbfangirl123 – you're not the boss of me :P And I come here because there are regular posters that I find extremely hilarious, so fuck off and get a life instead of commenting on what I have to say

  38. 38

    Seriously she needs to stop talking about this. Its been over a year now and nobody cares. and how can she say "It doesn't really add anything good if I start victimizing myself and complaining about things." she's been victimizing herself this whole time and she is continuing to play the victim card by still talking about it now. Get over yourself Taylor Swift.

    Re: CJLOVE23 – wow..you are a looser.. you should find other ways to kill time

  40. 40

    Re: Mrbrightside976
    THANK YOU !!!!!!!!!!!
    Holy shit. Um she was asked a question. Is she not allowed answering it
    since she's apparently "milking" the whole situation. Hell, Kanye fucking went on a rant about his apology to Taylor A YEAR LATER and A WEEK BEFORE THE VMA'S. Your comment is the only one that makes perfect sense.!!! Thank you for having a brain !!

  41. 41

    Re: Chinwe Okorie – wait, how am I the loser? LOL. I was just commenting how frustrating it is that we can't see the comments from posters on here…?

  42. 42

    thank you. Nice to see people with sense. I for one feel for the haters-tay new song straight to nr1. That must hurt.

  43. 43

    Re: jsqtsa – You tell them my brother!

  44. 44

    Will this bitch ever shut up! I can picture her at 90 years old telling her grandchildren: "Did I ever tell ya'll about the time Kanye interrupted me at the VMA's.
    Grandchildren: YES! Grandma, now shuta fuck up!

  45. 45

    kanye is a notalent singtalker…i wish eminem had dissed his ass like he planned. U need to stfu rainbow-go find a keisha song to shake your drunken ass to. She was asked-she answered. Actually tay made kanye relevant in the news again…he was fading badly.

  46. 46

    Re: dodgyend – Kanye has more talent in his little toenail than this nobody will ever have.

  47. 47

    Re: kitty9 – and his talent being? Pushing buttons? Get real.

  48. 48

    Oh shit yeah. I'm tired of hearing about this shit already. What it boils down to, is that he spoke the truth. He just went about it the wrong way.

  49. 49

    Re: dodgyend – What is her talent? Catterwauling about love, what is she? - 15? Just another conveyor belt pop star. Gone in a couple of years hopefully.

  50. 50

    Re: kitty9 – she actually has musical talent…but u are just too dumb to get it.

  51. 51

    omg taylor, you have got to move on. it was an mtv award, not the nobel peace prize. you have plenty of trophys. this is not something we will remember in 10 years time. it wouldve been forgotten now if u would just quit bringing it up.

  52. 52

    Are you guys seriously telling Taylor to get over it? Umm HELLOOO.. Kayne went on a day rant about how sorry he was to Taylor A YEAR FUCKING AFTER THE VMA'S AND A WEEK BEFORE THE VMA'S. You haters are so fucking clueless. I never knew Taylor being asked a question and her answering it was milking it. Cry me a river please.. She is over it !!! But you clueless neanderthals obviously don't know what getting over it is. Kayne is obviously not over it. Taylor obviously is. Her song innocent was telling everyone that she moved on that it's okay to make mistakes.. But you idiots probably can't tell what's left or right.

  53. 53

    She clearly is over it, that's what the song is about ;) If you took the time to listen to the lyrics or even try to understand what the song is about, that would be pretty obvious. And obviously she is "still talking about it" because she's being questioned about it in interviews. what is she supposed to say? She's not attacking him, she's saying that she has moved on and that the song was part of the process.

    And yeah, I actually think it is sort of a big deal that he went up there and ruined her moment, humiliating her in front of an audience of artists that she respects and admires, and millions of TV/internet viewers. I can imagine it made her feel like no one appreciated how hard she worked to get there. And she really freaking did. She has been writing songs since she was a kid and for most of her life she worked towards getting that record deal - she learnt to play instruments, she writes all of her own music… more than I can say for many other artists out there.

    She was relevant before Kanye, she was touring all over the world, had won tons of awards and had two albums out before the VMAs incident even happened. You might want to check your facts before you throw around things like that ;)
