Taylor Swift Rejects Kanye's SongS

  • A "friend" of Taylor Swift says that the singer wants nothing to do with the song Kanye West claims he wrote for her.

As far as Taylor is concerned, he can take his song and shove it." For some reason I feel like we'll find out if this is true or not at tomorrow night's VMAs. [DigitalSpy]

I'm not advising you to drop out of school, I'm just advising you to follow your heart and if you really believe in something and you project that, I believe that it does come back to you, so, I aligned myself with great people which I feel like is the key to success and here I am."-Drake [DigitalSpy]
