Taylor Swift was interviewed by Rolling Stone and talks about T-Sweezy and rapping:
What I was getting at was when are you going to start rapping? I thought T-Sweezy was one of the highlights of 2009.
Did you really? [Laughs] The CMT Awards asked me, “Do you want to be a part of our intro?” and one of the first things that came to my mind was that I really, really want some excuse to be able to rap and go to the mall and go to those kiosk things and go buy bling and experience rapping in front of a car with spinners for the first time. T-Pain agreed to it and flew to Nashville and we were in a sweltering hot, 95-degree parking garage for an entire day shooting — I will never, ever forget that memory.
“Go to the mall and go to those kiosk things and go buy bling”…It’s sad that that’s what ‘others’ think about Hip-Hop. SMH.
