Kendrick Lamar Wants His Answer 'On the Record' When Asked About Katy Perry & Taylor Swift's Feud

Kendrick Lamar gets up close and personal on the cover of Rolling Stone‘s new issue.

Here’s what the 30-year-old rapper had to share:

On if he was aware of Katy Perry & Taylor Swift‘s feud when he did the “Bad Blood” remix: “No, I wasn’t aware of that, bro. That’s a great question. No! On the record, no. Which makes it even more funny now, for sure. That’s far beyond my concern. I have to stay away from that, for sure. That’s some real beef.”

On what he learned from working with Beyonce on Lemonade: “How particular to be about your music. She’s a perfectionist. Think about the BET performance. She was very particular – the lighting, the camera blocking, the transition from the music to the dancing. It was confirmation of something I already knew.”

On when he found his own style: “I think it was the day I said I was gonna go by my real name, Kendrick Lamar.”

    He probably didn’t know his verse was being used for a Taylor Swift song. His record label made him do it since it was probably in his contract, he couldn’t refuse if he wanted to. That’s how it works.
