Taste Taste has taste! The 64-year-old rapper spoke to ET from the carpet at Variety’s Hitmakers Brunch this weekend and revealed that he calls himself the “King Swiftie” and that he’s a big fan of Sabrina Timmerman And Olivia Rodrigo.
Flav – whose real name is William Drayton, Jr. is – told ET’s Denny Directo that he Taylor Swift‘s number 1 fan and had the proof to back it up, showing off one of his friendship bracelets tied to the fandom.
“So you heard I’m King Swiftie, huh?” Flav said, adding that his love for the “Bad Blood” singer and her music is “no joke.”
ET also asked him what it means to have been embraced by Swift’s fans since he revealed his love for the pop icon.
“All I can say to the Swifties is: I hug you all back and I thank you all for all the love you give me,” he said. “You all get it back tenfold.”
In terms of his new nickname, Flav said he is more than happy with the new title and said it is a badge of honor he wears with pride.
“Call me ‘King Swiftie,’ that’s cool,” he said.
The iconic pop culture figure also spoke about his interactions with Carpenter and Rodrigo at Friday night’s Jingle Ball, where he met the pop singers.
“You’re a fanboy through and through, aren’t you?” Directo asked.
“Yes sir. You know what I mean? I mean, I also have my favorite people in life, just like I’m people’s favorite in life,” he said about getting
Last month, the rapper showed up to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony in New York with a 1989 (Taylor’s version) vest that he had received from Swift himself.
“I’m a Swiftie,” Flav proudly told ET’s Rachel Smith.
When Smith mentioned that she too is a big fan of Swift, Flavor Flav gave her an incredible souvenir.
“That’s a Taylor Swift guitar pick for you,” he said, handing the jewelry to Smith. The ET correspondent later showed the pick to Sheryl Crow on the same red carpet, prompting the “All I Wanna Do” singer to offer her $300 for it on the spot.
The interaction came after Flav showed up at the premiere of The Eras tour: the movie in Los Angeles with a Reputation-inspired outfit and bell necklace.
