Taylor Swift Says Kanye West Moment 'Burrowed Into My Psyche' but She Doesn't 'Think Too Hard' About It Now https://t.co/fgQxu0KSOf— People (@people) January 21, 2020
Taylor Swift reveals she's still affected by the Kanye West interruption that took place at 2009's VMAs.
In the new issue of Variety, the songstress opened up about the emotional impact that the incident had on her psyche.
“As a teenager who had only been in country music, attending my very first pop awards show, somebody stood up and sent me the message: ‘You are not respected here. You shouldn’t be here on this stage. That message was received, and it burrowed into my psyche more than anyone knew.”
She continues, “But then when that person who sparked all of those feelings comes back into your life, as he did in 2015, and I felt like I finally got that respect, but then soon realized that for him it was about him creating some revisionist history where he was right all along, and it was correct, right and decent for him to get up and do that to a teenage girl.”
The 30 year old star does admit it's gotten easier as the years have went on, “I don’t think too hard about this stuff now.”
