Taylor Swift, who has no shortage of beef with Kanye West, has weighed in on another one of the mercurial rapper’s foes. In her new Rolling Stone cover story, she blames Kanye for Pusha T exposing Drake‘s son on “The Story of Adidon.”
“He gravely affected the trajectory of Drake’s family and their lives,” she said. “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 shit all day, but it’s the same thing.”
Kanye has repeatedly denied leaking the information to Pusha T and has also repeatedly tried to squash the beef. For his part, Push says he learned about Drake’s son through a woman who slept with his go-to producer, Noah “40” Shebib.
Of course, Swift has an axe to grind after Kanye’s line about her on “Famous” reignited their own beef. In regards to the phone call in which she purportedly endorsed the line “I feel like me and Taylor still might have sex. Why? I made that bitch famous,” she said “the context and the events” are not known by the public.
“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 was for him to respect me,” she said. “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 . . . It just felt like I was healing some childhood rejection or something from when I was 19.”
Will any of this ever end?
