Kanye West says he and Taylor Swift have every intention of recording music together in the near future, but a HollywoodLife.com insider tells us EXCLUSIVELY that the ‘Blank Space’ singer is nervous about collaborating with the rapper. Find out why.
Kanye West, 36, revealed in an interview with Ryan Seacrest that he and Taylor Swift, 24, will be going into the studio and collaborating on music together in the near future. HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned, however, that Taylor is a bit hesitant because she’s afraid the rapper is too unpredictable and he’ll destroy her image.
Taylor Swift On Kanye West Collaboration: How She Feels About Making Music Together
“Taylor is very protective of her image and she knows that working with Kanye could go either way. If she does it, she wants it to look like she provided the olive branch and forgave him, but she is scared that he will do something stupid and in turn make her look bad. So she is treading lightly on a collaboration and at this point it is not going to happen. Wishful thinking on Kanye’s part,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Let’s not forget that Kanye once humiliated Taylor on national television by hijacking her acceptance speech during the 2009 MV Video Music Awards. Furthermore, he did the same thing to Beck during the Grammy Awards on Feb. 8.
Don’t get us wrong — a song featuring both Kanye and Taylor would be a hot seller, but it’s a risk nonetheless. Taylor seems to be making the right choice by not collaborating with Kanye.
