WATCH: Kanye West Defends VMAs Incident with Taylor Swift Again
Who doesn’t love a good Kanye West rant?!
Yeezy performed in the Philippines on Saturday night (April 9) where he broke out his track “Famous,” which made waves when his new album was released because it references the rapper’s bizarre incident with pop singer Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.
The lyrics to the song state: “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous (goddamn) / I made that bitch famous.”
Apparently Saturday was Kanye’s first time performing “Famous” live, which got him pretty excited.
“This is the song that broke the writer’s block for me, because it’s something I wanted to say so bad,” he said. “So if I get in trouble for saying the truth, what’s being said the rest of the time? And I had to fight every day of my life, with the whole world turned against me, for saying out loud what everyone else felt. But that’s the job of an artist, of a true artist: not to be controlled by their finances, not to be controlled by perceptions, but only to be controlled by their truth.”
Kanye enjoyed performing the song so much, he performed it a second time on Saturday.
Check out the video above. It’s ridiculous. It’s Kanye.
