The Daily Grind Video

Taylor Swift sits down for a great interview with Rolling Stone, and she admits that she wants to get deeper in the rap game.

Here is the highlight of the interview:

What I was getting at was when are you going to start rapping? I thought T-Sweezy was one of the highlights of 2009.
Did you really? [Laughs] The CMT Awards asked me, ‘Do you want to be a part of our intro?’ and one of the first things that came to my mind was that I really, really want some excuse to be able to rap and go to the mall and go to those kiosk things and go buy bling and experience rapping in front of a car with spinners for the first time. T-Pain agreed to it and flew to Nashville and we were in a sweltering hot, 95-degree parking garage for an entire day shooting — I will never, ever forget that memory.  I’m inspired by all kinds of different sounds, and I don’t think I’d ever be someone who would say, ‘I will never make a song that sounds a certain way, I will never branch outside of genres,’ because I think genres are sort of unnecessary walls. I’ve been really lucky to have experienced that firsthand, with people taking down those walls for me little by little — I’ve been very lucky that country radio and pop radio have both been so wonderful to me. But when I hear a great song, I can’t help but be inspired by it, regardless of whatever genre that song falls under.

We hope for the sake of the game, that T-Sweezy gets her rhyme skills down and her beatboxing ready.  Cause’ we ready for it!
