“I was in the studio. I’m working on new music. I’m working on my second album. So I was in the booth, I was on my focus shit.” she recalled when asked about the ‘Ye tweet. “My brother texts me and it’s a screenshot of the tweet and at first I thought it was like Photoshop.

I was like ‘Wait a minute, this is like a real tweet… This is actually crazy.’ So I had to stop singing for a second and was like ‘Hang on you guys Kanye just tweeted my music video. We have to stop, we have to cut!'” She also noted that she’s never met Kanye but is excited to once that moment finally happens.
