Taylor Swift discusses potential Kanye West collaboration

Taylor Swift isn't ruling out the possibility of a duet with Kanye West. The famous pair sparked speculation that they might be working on a collaboration after being spotted dining together in New York following the Grammys, but Taylor has insisted that nothing has been confirmed yet.

"We've hung out, gone to dinner, talked and he's one of those people who's always throwing out ideas, so that was one of the ideas that was thrown out," she told E! News.

"There were lots of other ideas he has, you can imagine. But no creative decision has been made up about the next record."

The musicians appear to have buried the hatchet in recent months after Kanye famously stormed the stage when Taylor was receiving an award at the 2009 MTV awards. The rapper told her that his friend Beyoncé Knowles deserved the award instead, but it seems that he has since had a change of heart about Taylor's music.

Speaking on a US chat show, Kanye said: "Yeah, she wants to get in the studio and we're definitely going to go in. Any artist with an amazing point of view, perspective, fan base, I'm down to get in the studio and work.

"I don't discriminate, I don't have an elitism of music because of like how many Grammys or you know, the amount of ratings you get on an album."

However it appears their potential collaboration may be put on hold for a while. Taylor is currently preparing for her 1989 World Tour which begins in Tokyo in May.

The Shake it Off singer has also been spending as much time as possible with her new boyfriend Calvin Harris ahead of the tour. Taylor enlisted the help of the DJ to host a barbecue for a group of her famous friends including Ellie Goulding, Lorde and Haim at the beginning of the week.
