Flavor Flav has been bestowed the ultimate Swiftie title: “King Swiftie!”

The Public Enemy member, 64, talked on the NFL Honors red carpet about getting that crown from Taylor Swift fans — and revealed what he talked to Swift herself about at the 2024 Grammys this past Sunday.

The rapper told the Los Angeles Times that he finally “got to get some Taylor time” at the awards show after attending her Eras Tour show last year. “The discussion [at the event] was about me congratulating her on all her success. And me being a big fan of hers, a big supporter of hers.”

“Having her acknowledge that her fan base ‘Swifties’ gave me a name, ‘King Swiftie,’” added the rapper.

“I said, ‘You know they call me King Swiftie?’ She said, ‘I know!'” recalled the rapper. “Yo, when I heard her say that, that was huge for me.”

He also revealed that his favorite track of the Lover singer’s is “Bad Blood.”

“I mean, that’s [about] everybody’s relationships, or everybody’s families, or everybody’s friendships, it’s like, you know, ‘I used to be good friends, now you did something to me, now we got bad blood, look what you’ve done!' ” he explained.
