Taylor Swift was recently profiled in the New Yorker where it was revealed she and Kanye West high five now.
Lizzie Widdicombe, the New Yorker writer who profiled Swift wrote,
Swift neared the top of the stairs and froze. She grabbed Erickson’s sleeve in a panic: ‘Am I supposed to talk to him or not?” Standing by the door was the rapper Kanye West… Swift hesitated for a second, and then realizing that there was no time to wait for advice, continued walking up the stairs toward West. As she neared the door, he held a hand out, and they exchanged a studiedly casual “down low” high five. When it was over Swift stopped just inside the museum, looking giddy. Erickson let out a breath, and exclaimed “That wasn’t bad!” Feeling my eyes on her, Swift didn’t comment on what had just happened. Instead, she said, “I’m so glad I didn’t bring a purse this year!
Reading about the Swift/West high five is one thing, but actually seeing it would solidify it better in my mind, if only there were video proof! Though, high fives are so last year, I guess this means that any and all bad feeling about the 2009 VMA incident must be gone on both sides.
What do you think of the two sharing a high five?
