You saw that right: Flavor Flav is a Swiftie. He chatted with multiple reporters and boasted about his love for the pop star.

Trophy season is pressing forward, and Flavor Flav looked to be enjoying himself at the 2023 iHeartRadio Music Awards. The rich and famous descended on the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles to watch their peers' performances and to learn who would take home the gold. It's a reunion—or first meeting—for many, as stars, too, have celebrities that they admire. Flav is a Hip Hop icon who was excited to be on the red carpet, and he told Billboard that attending award shows will "never get old to me."

"It's always gonna be new, every time I do it," he added. The reporter wanted to know who the Public Enemy icon was most excited to see. "Let me tell you something, man. I want to see Lenny Kravitz, I'm a big fan of Lenny Kravitz." However, the "American Woman" singer took a backseat to Flav's fanning over Taylor Swift. He even opened his jacket to show off his shirt that read, "Come Back Stronger Than a '90s Trend." It's a lyric from Swift's song, "Willow."

That wasn't the only reporter Flav was bragging about Taylor Swift to. Elsewhere, he revealed he's working on new music and will soon return to television. It's unclear if he'll once again be looking for love on a dating show, but we're sure it'll be captivating. Then, he once again showed off his shirt and spoke about his admiration of Swift. "Always love Taylor Swift's music," he said before admitting to being a Swiftie. "I'm here to support her! I'm here to support my girl."

To prove that he's dedicated, Flavor Flav sang "Bad Blood" but switched up the lyrics ever so slightly. "'Good blood!' I ain't got no bad blood today! I got the good blood, you know what I'm saying! Word up! But yeah, I wanna meet her, too. One day." And just like that, Flav spoke it into reality. While at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, he got his wish, and Taylor even posed for a selfie. The smile on Flav's face says it all. Check out his red carpet moments above.
