Taylor Swift Needs To Be Alone Right Now, And It's Kendrick Lamar's Fault

Don't we all?

Taylor Swift is just like the rest of us.

Yeah, sure, there are some differences -- we aren't one of music's biggest stars, we didn't sell millions of records last year, and we don't become the talk of award shows with our dancing. And she's got all that down.

But where I can relate to Taylor? I'd like to not be bothered for the rest of the day (at least) so I can soak in Kendrick Lamar’s new album, To Pimp A Butterfly, which he dropped early Monday morning (Mar. 16), a week before its scheduled release.



Of course, this isn't the first time that one of these two has shown love to the other. Actually, over the last few months, it's almost turned into something we've come to expect.

Taylor kicked things off in September, by telling Rolling Stone that when she needs a boost, she throws on "Backseat Freestyle." K. Dot responded just a week later, saying, "I appreciate Taylor Swift for supporting not only my music but just the hip-hop culture."

In November, the Compton native first sang "Shake It Off" in an interview, and then kicked a little freestyle over it while on a Dallas radio station.

Tay responded, naturally, by posting a video of herself rapping "Backseat Freestyle," and then a few days later, someone mashed up the two songs, because that's really all that was left to do.

Now that she's got a new Kendrick album, Taylor may have to replace "Backseat Freestyle" as her go-to track. Wonder what she'll choose.
