Taylor Swift And Kanye West Are Totally BFFs Now

We probably have Lorde to thank for this.

You may remember that Kanye interrupted Taylor's acceptance speech at the 2009 Video Music Awards, inciting a musical beef so great that President Obama felt compelled to weigh in.

The first inkling that tonight would be something special came after Kayne’s performance with Rihanna and Paul McCartney — Taylor was cheering. Not in an “I know the cameras are one me” kind of way, but in a real, genuine "that was awesome and I loved it" kind of way.

Then Taylor cozied up to Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian-West.

And that could only mean one thing...

Nobody looks happy but they're together and that's what counts.

Which would've been enough, but the superstars didn't stop there.

They willingly posed for a photo — just the two of them!

And Kanye deemed the occasion important enough to smile for!

They even took a moment to hold hands and bury the hatchet.

They're practically besties now, tbh.

Is it too early to insist on a collaboration?
