Taylor Swift is reportedly considering an appearance on Ellen to set the record straight regarding her feud with Kanye West and what really caused her split with Calvin Harris.
Taylor, who has found herself making rather negative headlines as of late, thinks that people are getting the wrong impression of her, especially after reports had claimed she had cheated on Calvin prior to their breakup last month.
Swift’s own fans were left puzzled as to how the “Style” singer could move on from Harris in a matter of two weeks, after having gushed on how she planned to spend the rest of her life with the music producer at this year’s iHeart Music Awards earlier this year.

Just last month, Kanye West dropped his highly-anticipated music video for his hit song “Famous,” in which he makes the following reference, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that b**** famous.”
The duo has been feuding for the past six months over Kanye’s claims that he had Taylor’s permission to use the derogatory term on the track, something the 26-year-old firmly denies, the Guardian reports.
Last night, however, following months of speculation whether or not Taylor was telling the truth, Kim Kardashian decided to leak the audio of Swift’s phone call with Kanye, where she clearly states that she has no problem with the lyrics and thanks the rapper for taking the time to reach out to her.
With the audio leak, Taylor Swift thinks that a lot of people have been trying to tarnish her good-girl image, so much so that she is willing to sit down and do an interview with Ellen DeGeneres to help clear up some of the rumors that have been circulating on the internet in recent weeks.

Regarding her relationship with Tom Hiddleston, a source tells the Mirror, “The simple truth is that Taylor is in love and, as well as showing off her new man to her fans, she feels a friendly interviewer like Ellen could really help boost their standing as power couple, as well as Tom’s Hollywood career.”
Ellen is close friends with Taylor, so she’s not worried about the interview being twisted to the point where she makes herself look even worse in the public eye. She’s more or less just wanting to tell her side of the story, with the majority of the interview focused on her split with Calvin Harris.
While Calvin initially claimed he still wanted to remain friends with Swift, the music producer has made it known that he isn’t happy with how Taylor is handling their split, particularly since she decided to break up with him.

Last week, the British-born superstar slammed the singer on Twitter after Swift’s team released a statement, confirming that their client had written Harris’s smash hit, “This Is What You Came For,” making it seem as if Calvin released the record without Taylor’s permission.
“I know you’re off tour and you need someone new to try and bury like Katy ETC but I’m not that guy, sorry. I won’t allow it,” Calvin wrote on his official Twitter page on July 13.
Regarding Taylor Swift’s interview with Ellen DeGeneres, the talk-show host has yet to confirm her booking for the show.
