Wiz Khalifa fell asleep during Taylor Swift’s Grammys performance

Rapper says country star's singing caused him to nod off

Rapper Wiz Khalifa says he fell asleep during Taylor Swift’s performance at the Grammys on Sunday (January 26).

Appearing on E!’s Fashion Police with his wife Amber Rose, host Joan Rivers asked Khalifa if he checked his watch during Swift’s “endless” performance. The rapper replied:

I love Taylor, but I’m not even gonna lie, I fell asleep. Just a little bit… then I woke back up.

You can watch Swift’s performance below – but perhaps exercise caution if you’re operating heavy machinery. The country singer failed to take home any gongs from the American music world’s biggest awards ceremony, where Daft Punk, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and New Zealand newcomer Lorde were the big winners. Catch up on the action from the ceremony here.


Wiz Khalifa last year revealed that he had recorded tracks with Miley Cyrus and Adele but had yet to receive clearance to put either collaboration on his forthcoming LP, ‘Blacc Hollywood’. Speaking to Skee TV, Khalifa revealed that he and Adele had first met when the singer approached his wife Amber Rose at a previous Grammys ceremony. “She ran up on Amber,” he said. “She was like ‘Amber! Amber!’ and told her how beautiful she looked. “Her people contacted some of my people when they found out we were working on the album and sent some ideas through, so we were able to knock some things out.”
