She revealed that she and Kanye “reconnected” after the  moment when he interrupted her onstage at the 2009 VMAs

“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,” she said.

She told Rolling Stone that Kayne asked her to present him with the Vanguard Award at the VMAs in 2015.

“He called me up beforehand — I didn’t illegally record it, so I can’t play it for you … and he’s like, “I really, really would like for you to present this Vanguard Award to me, this would mean so much to me,” and went into all the reasons why it means so much, because he can be so sweet … I wrote this speech up, and then we get to the VMAs and I make this speech and he screams, “MTV got Taylor Swift up here to present me this award for ratings!”

“And 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,”

He later apologized sending her a huge bouquet of flowers and she decided to try to move past it once again.

Then she received that phone call from Kanye asking about a line in his song, “Famous,” that says, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex,” she says she was touched that he felt the need to explain it. When she heard the finished song, though, that line was followed by, “Why? Because I made that bitch famous.”

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.” … 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.
