Taylor Swift has a new way of reaching out to her fellow celebrities, and it doesn't involve social media.

The "Shake It Off" singer tells NME magazine that after her Twitter feud with Nicki Minaj leading up to the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, she decided that it's better to hash things out offline rather than get her 64.5 million Twitter followers involved.

"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," Swift said. "It's an important lesson for anyone to learn in 2015."

In July, Minaj went on a Twitter rant about how "Anaconda" was snubbed for a Video of the Year nomination at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards. Swift, a Video of the Year nominee, took the attack personally, tweeting: "I've done nothing but love and support you. It's unlike you to pit women against each other. Maybe one of the men took your slot."

She later apologized to Minaj, saying she "missed the point" of the tweets, and the two performed together at the VMAs.

The 25-year-old artist also addressed the beef she had with Kanye West after he interrupted her speech at the 2009 VMAs. "Me and Kanye are on such good terms now, six years later," she said. "It took a while."

West also went on a rant this year after Beck won the Album of the Year GRAMMY for his album Morning Phase. However, as Swift points out, he now thinks differently about the rocker.

"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," Swift recalled. "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.'"
