We’re gonna let him finish, but Kanye West just dropped some shockingly awesome music news:
He may collaborate on an upcoming song with Taylor Swift.
Yes, the same Taylor Swift whose speech West infamously interrupted at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.
“She wants to get into the studio, and we’re definitely gonna go in,” Kanye told Ryan Seacrest on the latter’s radio show yesterday morning.
But what about the supposed feud between these singers?
“Any artist with an amazing point of view, perspective, fan base, I’m down to get into the studio and work," West replied. "I don’t discriminate; I don’t have an elitism of music because of how many Grammys or the amount of ratings you get on an album.
"If I could be involved in giving people any type of energy, advice in the studio – whether you’re Beyonce, whether you’re Taylor Swift, whether you’re Jay Z, whether you’re Beck – and they can be reciprocal with that, I’d like to be involved with that.”
West and Swift were actually spotted chatting and laughing at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night, with the former saying the latter told him to jump up on stage.
In that same interview with Seacrest, Kanye addressed the controversy that arose when he claimed Beck didn’t deserve to win Album of the Year.
He basically took back his diss and admitted that Beck is an artist worthy of respect.
Kanye also said voices in his head made him go up on stage and pretend like he was going to interrupt Beck’s speech as well. But he was just joking. We think.
How awesome would a Kanye-Taylor collaboration be? What about an entire Watch-the-Throne-like album?!? We’re getting giddy just thinking about it.
The mere thought of these two working together makes us wanna dance like … Taylor Swift!
