Flavor Flav is a 1980s legend and has been an icon since his emergence. That said, in a recent interview with Ebro Darden on the HOT 97.0 breakfast show Ebro In The Morning, the lyricist made some exciting revelations.
In a discussion about the recent 81st Golden Globes ceremony, Darden and Flavor Flav (real name William Drayton Jr.) spoke about the nomination of Swift’s documentary, Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour.
Partway during their discussion, Drayton admitted that he has a lot of love for Taylor Swift, declaring, “Yes, I am a Swiftie. Not only that, but I got a new name now: King Swiftie.” He admitted he even attended the tour with his partner’s children and loved it.
Recounting his experience, Drayton stated, “So my manager got in contact with Taylor Swift’s people, and they hooked me up with some tickets and passes. When we walked over to the tent where I was supposed to be at, a lot of these fans were coming up to me.”
He continued, “These young kids, man, I’m surprised they even knew who I was — and they start giving me these friendship bracelets. Next thing you know, I have friendship bracelets all up the arm, man. We were trading bracelets and everything! Her fanbase embraced me, and I embraced them back.”
He unveiled that, from there, he did a deep dive into Swift’s discography, stating, “So, I went home and I started really listening to Taylor. I’m listening to her music, and I’m like, ‘Yo, this girl is dope!’ She’s writing a lot about experiences that she goes through in life, just like a Mary J. Blige!”
Following this, he unveiled his favourite Swift track, revealing, “My favourite record that she wrote is ‘Bad Blood,’ the original one. I like the one with Kendrick Lamar on it too, but the original ‘Bad Blood,’ you know what I’m saying?!”
