Did T.I. Diss Taylor Swift?
Taylor Swift has been nothing but super-nice to rapper T.I., especially when she invited him to perform at her concert when she was passing through his hometown of Atlanta. The two seemed to get along great and have even become friends. On unseen footage from his reality show T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle, the rapper reportedly made a backhanded comment about the country crooning sweetheart.
Apparently it all started when Taylor invited T.I. to perform with her at one of her Atlanta concerts. While contemplating her offer, T.I. wondered aloud, “The dilemma then becomes: Do I choose street cred or Hollywood?”
Check out the video below:
HollywoodLife reports: “The rapper laughed about the differences between White people on tour and African Americans (like the nice dressing rooms, the healthy food and no swearing). Although he did make sure to thank Taylor for the opportunity to perform alongside her at the sold out concert, it seemed like he was a little ashamed of himself at the same time. Taylor, on the other hand, couldn’t have been more welcoming to T.I. and his entire entourage.”
Taylor was indeed super stoked about performing with T.I., tweeting: “Singing ‘Live Your Life’ with TI tonight was unreal. LOUDEST screams from the crowd, 14,000 people, hands in the air-welcome back @Tip!!”
Do you think T.I. dissed his friend Taylor Swift on his show, or are people reading too much into it?
