Flavor Flav Reveals He's A Big Fan Of Taylor Swift

Flavor Flav isn’t hiding the fact that he is a Taylor Swift fan.

Flav just admitted he's a Taylor Swift fan, and he's got the merch to prove it. The Public Enemy rapper proclaimed his admiration for the glorified pop star while he was on the red carpet of the iHeartRadio Music Awards.

He showed up to the show rocking a jungle green hat and a matching bubble jacket that covered his Taylor Swift-inspired t-shirt. While he definitely wants to meet Lenny Kravitz, he wouldn't mind meeting the "Anti-Hero" singer either.

"I've always loved Taylor Swift's music," Flav said on the red carpet as he pointed everyone's attention to his t-shirt. "I'm here to support her. I'm here to support my girl. I want to meet her someday. I just want to shake her hand and take a picture with her. I love all of her music man."
