Kanye West and Taylor Swift have proved that they have put their differences aside, as they prepare to record together.

The duo, who were reunited at the Grammys, have made up after the rapper interrupted Taylor's acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2009.

Yeezy revealed the news to Ryan Seacrest on his radio show, saying: "Yeah, she [Taylor] wants to get in the studio and we're definitely going to go in.

"Any artist with an amazing point of view, perspective, fan base, I'm down to get in the studio and work. I don't discriminate, I don't have an elitism of music because of like, how many Grammys, or you know, the amount of ratings you get on an album.

"I think everyone loves music whether they love hip-hop, alternative, country, and if I could be involved in giving people any type of energy, advice in the studio, whether you're Beyonce, whether you're Taylor Swift, whether you're Jay Z, whether you're Beck, whoever, and they can be reciprocal with that, I'd like to be involved with that."

Kanye also explained his comments where he questioned Beck's artistry, after Morning Phase won the album of the year prize at the Grammys instead of Beyonce's self-titled record.

"Beck is one of the nicest guys and one of the most respected musicians in the game," the rapper said.

"When I said that thing about respect artistry, I think it came off the wrong way and that was a mis-wording on my part. Obviously Beck is one of the most respected artists, and respects artistry."

He also revealed why he rushed up on stage during Beck's acceptance speech, saying: "The voices in my head told me to go up."

He added: "It was kind of a joke like the Grammys themselves."
