Taylor told VF via Billboard:
“I feel like I wasn’t ready to be friends with [West] until I felt like he had some sort of respect for me, and he wasn’t ready to be friends with me until he had some sort of respect for me — so it was the same issue, and we both reached the same place at the same time,” Swift told the magazine. “I became friends with Jay Z, and I think it was important, for Jay Z, for Kanye and I to get along. . . . And then Kanye and I both reached a place where he would say really nice things about my music and what I’ve accomplished, and I could ask him how his kid’s doing.”
Taylor covered “The Style Issue,” in which she’s outfitted in menswear, chandelier earrings, and her trusty “red lip classic thing that you like” as she perches casually on a piano, photographed by the celebrated Mario Testino.
