And me being a big fan of hers, a big supporter of hers,” said Flav during on the red carpet, according to People. “Having her acknowledge that her fan base, Swifties, gave me a name, ‘King Swiftie,'” he added. “I said, ‘You know they call me King Swiftie?’ She said, ‘I know!’ Yo, when I heard her say that, that was huge for me.”
