Taylor Swift slams Kanye West, calls him 'two-faced' and that she hates herself for craving his Approval in candid Rolling Stones interview

Taylor Swift, 29, spoke in-depth about their high-profile falling out in a candid interview with Rolling Stone magazine, where she also discussed her fractious relationship with Katy Perry, self-doubt, and her relationship with Joe Alwyn.

On her infamous Kanye dispute, Taylor revealed she finds the rapper, 42, ‘two-faced’ and is no longer willing to pretend they are on good terms.

Revealing why she took such offense to Kanye West music ‘Famous’, Taylor told the magazine: ‘The world didn’t understand the context and the events that led up to it. Because nothing ever just happens like that without some lead-up.

‘Some events took place to cause me to be p***ed off when [Kanye] called me a b***h. That was not just a singular event. Basically, I got really sick of the dynamic between he and I…’

She continued: ‘I started to feel like we reconnected, which felt great for me — because all I ever wanted my whole career after that thing happened in 2009 [VMAs] was for him to respect me.

‘When someone doesn’t respect you so loudly and says you literally don’t deserve to be here — I just so badly wanted that respect from him, and I hate that about myself, that I was like, “This guy who’s antagonizing me, I just want his approval.” But that’s where I was.’

The singer revealed that they formed a friendship, heading to dinners together and Kanye would compliment her on her music, which felt like he was ‘healing her childhood rejection’.

However, she felt let down when the 2015 VMAs occurred, as she claimed the rapper asked her to present him with the Vanguard Award, as it would ‘mean so much’ to him, only to announce on stage that MTV made the decision in order to boost ratings.

Taylor recalled: ‘I’m standing in the audience with my arm around his wife, and this chill ran through my body. I realized he is so two-faced.

‘That he wants to be nice to me behind the scenes, but then he wants to look cool, get up in front of everyone and talk s**t. And I was so upset. He wanted me to come talk to him after the event in his dressing room. I wouldn’t go.’

However, Kanye sent flowers to the pop sensation by way of apology, and Taylor vowed to ‘move past’ the incident.

With their friendship already rocky, she then learned about the dig he had made at her in his hit, Famous, which later culminated in a giant Twitter war between Kanye and Taylor fans.

Kanye defended the line, claiming he had a conversation with Taylor about the lyrics in question, and after the singer accused him of lying, his wife Kim Kardashian released a partial recording of the conversation in question.

‘I’m really glad you had the respect to call me that and tell me that as a friend, about the song. It’s just a really cool thing to do, and a really good show of friendship’ Taylor is heard saying.

Taylor disputed the pair’s recount of events, however, telling the magazine: ‘He gets on the phone with me, and I was so touched that he would be respectful and, like, tell me about this one line in the song.

‘[The line being ‘… me and Taylor might still have sex’.] And I was like, “OK, good. We’re back on good terms.” And then when I heard the song, I was like, “I’m done with this. If you want to be on bad terms, let’s be on bad terms, but just be real about it.”‘

Taylor also accused Kanye of giving the same treatment to Drake, who the rapper has also been feuding with for years.

She reasoned: ‘It’s the same thing. Getting close to you, earning your trust, detonating you.

‘I really don’t want to talk about it anymore because I get worked up, and I don’t want to just talk about negative s**t all day, but it’s the same thing.’

Taylor and Kanye’s feud began 10 years ago when Kanye jumped on stage to interrupt Taylor’s Best Music Video acceptance speech, claiming the gong should have been awarded to Beyonce.
