In an interview with New York Magazine, Taylor Swift revealed to the publication why she decided to write a song about Kanye West.
“I think a lot of people expected me to write a song about (West),” she said. ”But, for me, it was important to write a song to him. It doesn’t really add anything good if I start victimizing myself and complaining about things.”
“Because I’m proud of that performance at the VMAs last year, where my fans helped me get through it,” she continued. “And there was a lot that went down backstage that I will always be thankful for, and the fans in the subway know exactly what happened that night.”
“I feel everything. I’ve never had this thick skin that can’t be… It’s not like I am bulletproof in any sense of the word.”
Taylor recently performed “Innocent” at the VMA awards, a song that was indeed dedicated to West. Combine that with her recent sales (which are beating Kanye’s) and you could say that Taylor is the one with the last laugh.
