Taylor Swift has the perfect opportunity to fire back at Kanye West in front of millions of people at the Grammy Awards on Feb. 15 — so why isn’t she going to take it? HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE scoop!
The Grammy Awards are sure to be a HUGE night for Taylor Swift, 26, and all eyes will be on the singer to see if she alludes to Kanye West’s new (and majorly offensive) song lyrics about her. Don’t hold your breath waiting for an onstage diss, though — HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that the 26-year-old likely won’t retaliate against Yeezy at the show.
“Taylor is no fan of Kanye’s lyrics about her, but she’s now thinking that she shouldn’t attack him back right now,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She feels like attacking him in any way in his time of trouble is like poking a tiger with a stick. She doesn’t want to give him any fuel to do anything else. She just hopes it all passes sooner than later. She wants to be drama-free”!
In case you forgot, Kanye released the song “Famous” during his Yeezy Season 3 fashion show on Feb. 11, and on the track he sings, “It feels like me and Taylor Swift might still have sex, I made that b**ch famous.” OUCH! ‘Ye has since said that he wasn’t dissing Tay on the track, and claimed she even approved of the lyrics herself (although her rep tells a different story), but the whole message is still majorly shocking.

The 26-year-old is up for a whopping seven awards at the Grammys, and is opening the show in what’s sure to be an epic performance. “The Grammys are going to be her showcase for an amazing year,” another insider dished to us EXCLUSIVELY. “A reaction song might come down the line, but she wants the Grammys to be about her and her achievements, not Kanye West.”
So it looks like Tay will be taking her boyfriend, Calvin Harris‘, advice and sorting this Yeezy thing out privately! But as we previously reported, she’s all for using the reignited feud to write a good song, so hopefully this’ll be a good kickstart for work on her next album, right?!
