Did Taylor Swift Ask Jay Z To Brunch?
It's not 4:00 a.m. at The Waffle House, but it's still a solid plan for a meal. This Sunday (Feb. 8), the 57th Grammy Awards were held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. While the world was up in arms over Kanye West's near-interruption of Beck's Album Of The Year acceptance speech, the one person who knew how he felt was making brunch dates. Video from a commercial break during the ceremony captures what appears to be Taylor Swift proffering a brunch invitation to Jay Z. Though without any audio to confirm, the footage (especially when isolated in .GIF form) seems to catch the 1989 singer more or less insisting that Hov join her for a mid-morning meal.
This all went down during the break in which Swift posed for photos with West, who famously halted her acceptance speech for Best Female Video at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. Like Beck, Swift was guilty--in Ye's eyes--of stealing a trophy destined for Beyonce's mantle. Since then, Swift has gone on to release three consecutive Billboard-topping albums; Kanye has dominated charts and critics' polls with 2010's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and 2013's Yeezus, not to mention his 2011 collaboration with Jay, Watch The Throne.
Whether or not Hov and Tay end up at Urth Cafe remains to be seen, but the two share one important trait: near-unprecedented chart success. The aforementioned three albums are part of a four-album run for which each record spent six or more weeks atop Billboard. She is the first artist since The Beatles to accomplish such a feat. As for Jay, he has had 13 albums top those same charts, the most ever for a solo artist.
