Kanye West disses Taylor Swift, Pink and MTV in leaked audio

Kanye West & Taylor Swift - New

It’s been four years already, but no one can forget that infamous moment at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards when Kanye West interrupted Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech, claiming that Beyonce should’ve won for Best Music Video instead. Although the world has calmed down about that unforgettable moment, West is about to return to the spotlight over that night as an audio of an alleged West vehemently justifying his interruption of Swift has now hit the Web.

According to Gawker, the audio was secretly recorded while West was at a dinner with friends, including some unidentified musicians, at Corner Bistro in New York’s West Village, after having left the VMAs. In the recording, West bashes Swift, erratically explaining that she didn’t deserve the win because, of all things, his swift and skillful work with a pen.

“I’m pushing the envelope! I wrote my f—– ‘Run This Town’ verse for a f—– month! When I heard Eminem’s verse on the Drake s—, I went back and rewrote my s— for two days. I canceled appointments to rewrite! I f—– care! You know what I’m saying?” West ranted. “And that’s what I’m saying. Because I did that, Taylor Swift cannot win over Beyoncé! Because I wrote my verse in two days, Taylor Swift cannot beat Beyoncé.”

In the recording, West is asked why he’s so angry about Swift’s win, to which he replies that racism and the death of his mother, Donda West, are to blame for his fury.

“Because my mother got arrested for the f—– sit-ins. My mother died for this fame sh*t! I moved to f—– Hollywood chasing this s—. My mother died because of this s—,” said West before throwing in a major diss towards MTV.  “F— MTV!”

West continues to draw loose and non-obvious connections in his rant as he then takes a major jab at Pink, who famously called him “the biggest piece of s— on earth” after he interrupted Swift’s speech.

“It ain’t no love. What the f— was Pink performing? Don’t nobody know that song. Pink performed twice! Two songs? How the f— Pink perform two songs and I didn’t even get asked to perform ‘Heartless.’ ‘Heartless’ is the biggest song of the year! It had the most spins of the first quarter! I don’t know that Pink song! But I noticed that she’s pink!” said West.

To West’s credit, he did take time from being a jerk and publicly apologized multiple times for marring Swift’s win. But clearly he had a lot of internal strife  and misdirected rage that he had to get off his chest at the time.

This isn’t the first time West has had us shaking our heads in embarrassment for him. Check out some of his other rants below. – nicholas robinson
