After years of back-and-forth, Taylor Swift says she thinks people are so “bored” with the feud between her and Kanye West.
“I think the world is so bored with the saga,” she told Vogue magazine. “I don’t want to add anything to it, because then there’s just more.”
It all started when West interrupted Swift’s acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, claiming that Beyonce deserved the award for Best Female Video over her. They eventually made up, but West refueled the feud when he took credit for the pop star’s fame in his new song “Famous,” off the album “Life of Pablo.”
“I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/Why? I made that bitch famous (God damn)/I made that bitch famous,” his lyrics say.
When Swift picked up her Album of the Year award at the Grammys in February, she took what seemed like a dig at West.
“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 said. “But if you just focus on the work, and you don’t let those people sidetrack you, some day when you get where you’re going, you will look around and know it is you and the people who love you who put you there.”
Now, in her new profile with Vogue, Swift explained that acceptance speech, and also added that many women — in particular mothers — approached her in the days afterward to thank her for it.
“I guess what I wanted to call attention to in my speech at the Grammys was how it’s going to be difficult if you’re a woman who wants to achieve something in her life — no matter what,” she said.
