Taylor Swift Covers ‘NME,’ Talks Pseudo-Feud With Nicki Minaj: View Photos
Taylor Swift officially solidified her entrance into the pop realm with the insanely successful 1989 album, but with increasing fame comes magnified f*ck-ups — like her pre-MTV VMAs “feud” and make-up session with Nicki Minaj.
In the latest issue of NME, which Taylor is the cover star, she briefly (read: vaguely) touches on the Twitter incident that stemmed from the VMAs Video of the Year nominations. “I don’t want to talk about it,” Swift said in the interview. “But I send text messages now. If there seems to be some kind of misunderstanding, I go to someone’s management, I get their number and I text them. It’s an important lesson for anyone to learn in 2015.”
Well there seems to be no “Bad Blood” between the two ladies, as they reconciled during the awards ceremony and Minaj chose to speak on Miley Cyrus instead of Taylor in her recent New York Times interview.
But the “Wildest Dreams” singer did speak about her newfound and very unexpected friendship with Kanye West, whom she presented the Video Vanguard award to during the VMAs.
Swift explained, “No, me and Kanye are on such good terms now, six years later. It took a while… But I had to tell Beck this story earlier. I was at dinner with Kanye a week after the Grammys, he stops what he’s saying and he goes, ‘What is this song? I need to listen to this every day.’ I say, ‘It’s Beck, it’s on an album called ‘Morning Phase’, I think you’ve heard of it…’ We just burst out laughing. And he says, ‘Hey, sometimes I’m wrong.’”
