Taylor Swift: 'I'm done talking about Kanye West feud'

Taylor Swift has no interest in adding fuel to her feud with Kanye West, because she feels the public is bored with their spat.

The musicians first fell out in 2009, when the rapper stormed the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards to protest Taylor's first win, but it appeared all was good between them last year, when the pop star presented Kanye with his Vanguard Award at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards.


But the gloves were off again in February (16), when Kanye debuted his song Famous at his New York Fashion Week show. The track features a line suggesting he made Swift famous.


Kanye alleged Taylor approved the line before he recorded the song, but her representative dismissed his claims, and when she took the stage to accept her Album of the Year prize at the Grammys days later, she shot back at Kanye with a thinly veiled jab.


"As the first woman to win Album of the Year at the Grammys twice, I wanna say to all the young women out there that there are going to be people along the way who try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame," she said.


"If you just focus on the work and you don't let those people side track you, someday when you get where you're going, you'll look around and you will know that it was you and the people who love you who put you there. And that will be the greatest feeling in the world."


The rapper has continued to defend his Famous lyrics, but Taylor is done talking about the subject.


"I think the world is so bored with the saga," she tells Vogue magazine. "I don't want to add anything to it, because then there's just more."


However, she did feel it was important to speak out during her Grammy Awards acceptance speech - even if she didn't mention Kanye directly.


"I guess what I wanted to call attention to in my speech at the Grammys was how it's going to be difficult if you're a woman who wants to achieve something in her life - no matter what."
