It looks like the ongoing tiff between Taylor Swift and Kanye West has been put to rest. While at LAX, West was questioned by paparazzi on his thoughts about Swift, given the recent audio leak at Saturday Night Live where the Chicago rapper/fashion designer reportedly called her a “fake a**.”
While on camera now, West said he wishes Swift well despite what’s been happening on social media and in the news. “I want the best for that person, but there’s people going through real issues out here,” he said. “There’s people out of work. There’s people in debt that can’t make it out of the debt. There’s people that’s in debt that don’t have a shoe. There’s people that are in debt that don’t have a hit album out also.”
Before these statements, Swift sent a subliminal message to Yeezy duing her acceptance speech for the Album of the Year award at the Grammys on Monday (Feb. 15).
In reference to a line Ye said about the “Wildest Dreams” singer on his track “Famous,” Swift replied, “There are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success, or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame.” She continued, “But if you just focus on the work and you don’t let those people sidetrack you … you’ll look around and you will know that it was you and the people who love you who put you there, and that will be the greatest feeling in the world.”
West also thinks that the media played a big hand in blowing up the situation. “The media tried to make this an ongoing story and everything for hits and blah blah. I don’t think people care about me or her in that way,” he said. “People care about their families, their kids. If you like my music, listen to it. If you like her music, listen to it.”
