Taylor Swift says she's handling matters by text messaging not Twitter now, after that incident over the summer when she misinterpreted Nicki Minaj's vast criticisms of the MTV Video Music Awards.

Speaking with NME for a new cover story, Swift did not want to talk about the clash with Minaj but did explain how she's preventing it from happening again.

"I don't want to talk about it," she told the magazine. "But I send text messages now. If there seems to be some kind of misunderstanding, I go to someone's management, I get their number and I text them. It's an important lesson for anyone to learn in 2015."

As for that other famed Swift-related VMA incident when Kanye West interrupted her award acceptance speech in 2009, she spoke about their friendship that's followed.

"Me and Kanye are on such good terms now, six years later," Swift said. "It took a while... But I had to tell Beck this story earlier. I was at dinner with Kanye a week after the Grammys, he stops what he's saying and he goes, 'What is this song? I need to listen to this every day.' I said, 'It's Beck, it's on an album called 'Morning Phase', I think you've heard of it???' We just burst out laughing. And he says, 'Hey, sometimes I'm wrong.'"

The full story will be out with the new issue of NME on Friday, Oct. 9.
