Kanye West and Taylor Swift looked like they had made up at the Grammy awards last week.
In 2009, Kanye West stormed the VMAs stage during Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech for the Best Female Video award saying that “Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time” and deserved the prize.
As the 2009 incident is behind them, now Kanye West has said he and Taylor Swift are “definitely” going to go into the studio together.
Kanye West was asked on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show if he would collaborate with Taylor Swift.

“Yeah, she wants to get in the studio and we’re definitely going to go in.
“Any artist with an amazing point of view, perspective, fan base – I’m down to get in the studio and work.
“I don’t discriminate, I don’t have an elitism of music because of like how many Grammys or you know, the amount of ratings you get on an album.
“I that think everyone loves music whether they love hip-hop, alternative, country, and if I could be involved in giving people any type of energy, advice in the studio, whether you’re Beyonce, whether you’re Taylor Swift, whether you’re Jay-Z, whether you’re Beck, whoever.”
Kanye West was asked about the interview he gave to E! at the Grammys, where he said Beck should “respect artistry” and give his best album award to Beyonce.
The rapper was also asked about his new project, Five Four Seconds, with Rihanna and Paul McCartney.
“Hey everyone, America, I’m not comparing myself to John Lennon, I’m just saying I’m angst a bit like John Lennon. And the [tension creates] a new magic.
“The pressure creates the diamond from the coal. And he came in with the best vibes ever, and I said, <<Four, five, seconds from wildin>>,’ and he said, <<It’s great everyone!>> and we just had that.”

This year’s Grammy Awards ceremony was watched by 25.3 million people in the US, the show’s smallest audience since 2009.
The figures were down 11% compared with 2014, when a tribute to the Beatles and a mass on-stage wedding attracted 28.5 million viewers.
However, it was the fifth consecutive year that the Grammy audience topped 25 million.
It was also the most-watched award show of the year to date, beating the Golden Globes’ audience by six million.
However, the Oscar ceremony remains the most-watched award show – having attracted 43 million people in 2014.
Sam Smith was the big winner at this year’s Grammys, taking home four awards including song of the year and record of the year – both of which went to his gospel-tinged break-up ballad Stay With Me.
Beck won the album of the year prize for his eighth album, Morning Phase – infuriating Kanye West, who stormed the stage to protest at Beyonce’s loss, before deciding to return to his seat rather than taking the microphone.
The incident was the most-tweeted moment during the show, attracting 13.4 million comments on Twitter. The ceremony was also streamed 7.5 million times, an increase of 40%.
Overall the show was low on spectacle, with most artists presenting stripped-back, muted performances; largely concentrating on their slower numbers.
Madonna was the obvious exception, playing a matador to a stage full of dancers wearing diamante-encrusted minotaur masks.

Kanye West started to interrupt Beck as he collects his Best Album Grammy Award, echoing his infamous 2009 on stage faux pas with Taylor Swift.
Prince was on stage announcing that Beck had won the Album of the Year award for his record Morning Phase.
“Like books and black lives, albums still matter – tonight and always,” the music legend said.
As Beck collected his award and walked up to the microphone, Kanye West approached the stage.
The audience gasped and jeered in horror thinking they will witness a repeat performance of one of the most cringeworthy moments in award ceremony history.
Kanye West famously interrupted Taylor Swift when she beat Beyoncé at the MTV VMA in 2009, shouting: “Yo, Taylor, I’m really happy for you and I’mma let you finish, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time. One of the best videos of all time!”

Kim Kardashian has unveiled her new haircut, a long bob, just before the Grammys.
The reality star tweeted alongside a new selfie: “I cut my hair short today.”
Kim Kardashian’s style shakeup comes just two days before she’s set to hit the 57th Annual Grammy Awards red carpet with Kanye West, who will be performing with Rihanna and Paul McCartney and is nominated for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration and Best Rap Song.
Kim Kardashian’s husband, Kanye West, was immediately supportive when he found out Bruce Jenner was officially transitioning to live as a woman.
But Kourtney Kardashian’s boyfriend, Scott Disick, “didn’t react very well” when he first learned of Bruce Jenner’s plans, new reports claim.
However, a source told People magazine, Scott Disick “is now on board,” just like Kanye West was from the start.
Kanye West “is totally fine with it. He believes in live and let live, and he took it all in stride”, the source told the magazine.
The magazine further shares that Bruce Jenner was completely open with his family about his process.
“Bruce told them everything – where things stood, what his plans were for the future, and what everyone could expect,” says People magazine’s source.
“Everyone basically knew what was up, but it was still a shock to hear it outlined so explicitly.”
The insider also talked about Kris Jenner’s reaction: “Kim went to Kris and asked her how she felt. They had a very long conversation about it. Once Kim was satisfied that Kris was emotionally OK, she was able to give Bruce her unconditional support.”
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West “are just trying to show Bruce love and acceptance – complete acceptance”, says the People source.
Bruce Jenner’s transition to a woman is expected to be showcased on the upcoming season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Rihanna teamed up with Kanye West and Sir Paul McCartney for a new project called Four Five Seconds.
It’s been almost a year since Rihanna, 26, released her last single.
Paul McCartney is one of the most celebrated artists of the 20th century, selling more than 100 million albums as part of the Beatles, Wings and as a solo artist.
Kanye West has previously collaborated with both Rihanna and Paul McCartney, though never before as a trio.
Four Five Seconds is a move away from Rihanna and Kanye West’s previous work together on All of the Lights (from Kanye West’s album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy) and Run This Town, where the pair teamed up with Jay-Z.
This time the track is a slower, acoustic guitar-driven number.
Kanye West played a snippet of Four Five Seconds to industry experts at the iHeartMedia music summit on January 21.
It’s yet to be confirmed if the song will appear on an album by any of the artists.
Though producer Ty Dolla $ign did tell Billboard earlier this month that the song is likely be part of Kanye West’s upcoming release.
The project follows Kanye West’s own collaboration with Paul McCartney at the beginning of the year.
Paul McCartney, 72, has a long history of collaborations with other artists, singing duets with Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and George Michael.

College dropout Kanye West is teaching at Los Angeles Trade Technical College for 250 hours as part of his mandated community service from his 2013 paparazzi mishap.
The community service stems from a paparazzi attack back in July of 2013, after a scuffle at LAX. The former Chicago State University student pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor count of battery against the photog.

Kanye West made the headlines over the weekend after stopping his Sydney show in order to ask a disabled person in a wheelchair to “stand up”.
Kanye West, 37, stopped his concert at the Qantas Credit Union Arena in Sydney, Australia, and repeatedly asked a wheelchair-user to stand up, and caught on YouTube.
“I decided I can’t do this song, I can’t do the rest of the show until everybody stands up,” Kanye West told the crowd.
“Unless you got a handicap pass and you get special parking,” he added.
It turned out that some of his fans did qualify for a “handicap pass” and, rather than being passed over, they were brought to the attention of the entire arena who urged the disabled fans to “stand up, stand up” as prompted by Kanye West.
Another fan who remained sitting was then pinpointed by Kanye West who complained: “This is the longest I’ve had to wait to do a song, it’s unbelievable.”
With the crowd booing, some closer to the fan tried to signal to Kanye West that the boy was in a wheelchair.
After apparently seeking further verification from a bouncer, Kanye West realized he had made a mistake.
“If he’s in a wheelchair, then it’s fine,” the rapper said before launching into his next song.

Despite encountering much negative attention in the media over the weekend, according to the Courier Mail, Kanye West has once again decided to ask for proof of disability from the fans in the crowd at his latest show in Brisbane.
“If you cannot prove to me that you are in a wheelchair you need to be standing, if you can it is OK to sit down,” Kanye West is reported as saying.
According to those in attendance, Kanye West defended himself against the media furore in a five-minute rant saying: “I’m a married, Christian man with a family, pick another target.”
Kanye West has been criticized about the incident in Sydney by local disability campaigners.
“To call out people for not standing up, when they are disabled and cannot stand up, in front of thousands of people, is humiliating,” says Craig Wallace of People With Disability Australia, in the Herald Sun.
“What if it was a young person who’s coming to terms with their disability?” he adds, saying Kanye West should apologize and would also benefit from disability awareness training.
For Suzanne Bull, the CEO of a charity that improves deaf and disabled people’s access to live music venues, it is important to teach others that not all disabled people are in wheelchairs.
“There are a range of facilities that disabled people need from a music venue,” she says.
“For example, non-wheelchair users find the viewing platform safer to be on in large crowds, visually impaired people need front row-seating, and provision needs to be made for assistance dogs.”
Though widely reported as another of Kanye West’s now famous gaffes, some fans at the gig have defended him saying he exempted disabled people from his game from the start. They say he made it clear that if they were in a wheelchair they need not stand.
Jessica Kearney was in the arena at the time and says West’s comments have been unfairly attacked.
“There was no malice, if anything the audience (myself included) “booed” the person as no-one knew that person was in a wheelchair,” she says.
“Kanye asked and no-one replied, even though he repeatedly said, ‘If you’re in a wheelchair that’s ok.'”
In the past, Kanye West has shown support for disabled fans. In June 2014, he asked his security team to give a wheelchair-user his microphone as a gift after spotting he had been blocked in and was unable to see the show properly.
Though stars often urge their audiences to get up and dance, disabled fans aren’t often forced into proving their disability to those they admire.

Kanye West admitted that he confronted comedian Jay Pharoah after his spoof at the 2014 MTV VMAs during a series of rants at the Made in America festival in Philadelphia on Saturday, August 30.
“They want to make a joke out of how hard we work,” Kanye West said while on stage at the Jay-Z hosted event referring to Jay Pharoah and a recent South Park spoof.
“It’s fine and all funny and everything, but don’t distract from our vision. It’s not a joke what we do up here. This music that we do is not a joke. What we do culturally is not a joke.”
Kanye West, 37, went on to tell the crowd that he called Jay Pharoah after the SNL actor’s skit went down at the MTV VMAs.

“I called Jay Pharoah right after the MTV awards,” Kanye West said.
“I said, ‘I appreciate your show, but let me tell you about my story. Let me tell you about what I went through to get to that position’ … So we ain’t gonna have no black comedians going onstage spoofing the people that’s working hard, and helping the next man out.”
Kanye West’s rant also included his relationship with Kim Kardashian.
“For me to be in a very publicized interracial relationship is not a joke,” Kanye West told the crowd of his new marriage.
“It’s something that should be treated with respect cause we’re all in this together.”

I want to invite you to run for mayor of Chicago in 2015 and make it the best city in the world. Doing this would require fixing some big problems. … Not to put any pressure on you but you are the only person in the world who could make this happen. There isn’t anyone else who (1) is wealthy and famous enough (2) is from Chicago, and (3) may actually understand the problems with the city.”

According to Us Weekly, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West said their vows in front of a giant wall of white flowers, a larger version of the gift Kanye sent his wife to celebrate Mothers’ Day earlier this month.
A source told the publication: “It’s very hot at the moment so they’ll have to spray them with water until the wedding starts to stop them from wilting.”
The website reports that guests will dine together on a 70-metre-long marble banquet table which had to be hoisted up in pieces over the side of the fortress walls, while a huge dance floor has been created in the garden of the fort.
A source told Us Weekly: “Kim and Kanye’s style team are freaking out about getting there on time.”
“They were all on really early morning flights from Paris and everyone’s spread out on different flights and in different hotels.”
Sources say that Kim Kardashian’s plans did have to be changed last minute – she was supposed to get ready for her big day at the villa, but organizers of a dog marathon almost thwarted the plan, an eyewitness claims.
Those involved in the event planned to block the road outside the villa for a few hours to make last minute arrangements. The wedding party was therefore forced to get out of the villa in a rush – or risk getting blocked in the site.
According to the Telegraph, Prince Ottaviano de’Medici di Toscana, a modern descendant of the once-powerful Medici family, is incensed by the bash in Fort Belvedere his ancestors built.
“The city is renting out our palazzi for small change to be used as dance halls,” said the prince, who heads a conservation society in Florence with 40,000 members.
“Events like this represent a danger to the cultural integrity and historical authenticity of the city, which is protected, and could mean a possible loss of UNESCO status or being placed on UNESCO’s danger list,”Prince Ottaviano de’Medici di Toscana said of the venue which has never been used for a wedding before.
Karen Houghton, Kim Kardashian’s aunt, has revealed that the reality star is set to rip off Prince William and Kate Middleton’s royal wedding with her multi European city bash.
She revealed that Kim Kardashian even attempts to out-dress the Duchess of Cambridge.
Karen Houghton said: “Kim loved the British royal wedding and is a huge fan of Kate Middleton. She was just so caught up in that day and very impressed by it, and how it played out on TV around the world.”
She added that Kim Kardashian could be sporting a crown.

“She really loves Kate and the princess has been a huge inspiration as far as her wedding plans are concerned.
“Kim saw how visually stunning the royal wedding looked and wants to replicate that. Kim and Kanye want something just as traditional and classy.”
“Kim saw how the fashion world has reacted to Kate and wants to be just like her. She could wear a crown or tiara made from real diamonds.
“Kim wore a crown with her wedding to Kris Humphries and I believe she’s thinking of doing it again.”
Karen Houghton will not attend the wedding after a fallout with Kim Kardashian’s mother – her elder sister, Kris Jenner. She said: “I wish I could be there, but I don’t think it’s fair to go when there’s a cloud of unrest hanging over Kris and I.
“This is Kim’s big day and she doesn’t need any distractions in that sense.”
Meanwhile, over in Paris, where the Kardashian clan has gathered, 33-year-old Kim had a pretty sedate hen party on Thursday night.
With 20 friends and her sisters, it was hosted in Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s favorite hangout, Hotel Costes. Afterwards the ladies took a tour of Paris by night, stopping to pose for pictures and selfies by the Eiffel Tower and the famous pyramid at the Louvre.
