Taylor Swift and Kanye West are super keen to show they've put past issues behind them and it's all good.

So good, in fact, it looks like he's bagged himself a running mate for his US Presidential campaign.

The rapper recently sent the singer an oddly cube-shaped bunch of flowers to which she replied on Instagram with a photo captioned: "#KanTay2020".

Cryptic. But could it mean she's willing to be Vice-President of America if Kanye's successful?

This instagram from Taylor Swift shows her standing next to a big bunch of flowers: "Awwww Kanye sent me the coolest flowers!! #KanTay2020 #BFFs"

Kanye announced he'd run for office while accepting the Video Vanguard Award presented by Taylor at the MTV Video Music Awards last week.

"It's not about me. It's about ideas. New ideas. People with ideas," he said.

"People who believe in truth. And yes, as you probably could've guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for President."

The pair haven't always been BFFs though.

Back in 2009 Kanye interrupted Taylor's acceptance speech for best video for You Belong With Me at the very same MTV Music Awards ranting that it should have gone to Beyonce's Single Ladies instead.

But, there are definitely no hard feelings now and having Taylor as a running mate won't do his popularity any damage in the polls.
