Kanye West: 'Taylor Swift backed Grammys stage invasion'

Kanye West's former stage invasion victim Taylor Swift gave the rapper her approval just moments after he performed a similar stunt during Beck's acceptance speech at the Grammy Awards.

West hit headlines in 2009 when he stormed the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards to protest against Swift's win over his pal Beyonce, and he appeared to repeat the feat at Sunday night's (08Feb15) Grammys.


West took to the stage as Beck accepted the Album of the Year prize to express his outrage that Beyonce had not won, and the hip-hop star has now revealed Swift ran straight over to him after he returned to his seat and gave him her blessing.


He tells DJ Ryan Seacrest, "You know Taylor Swift came up to me right afterwards, literally right afterwards, and tells me I should have gone on stage."


The pair patched up their friendship after the VMAs incident, and are now hoping to work together.
