2016 MTV Video Music Awards: Kanye West Calls Out Taylor, Premieres Sexy Music Video ‘Fade’

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian Just Gave the Paparazzi a Bunch of Yeezy Boosts
Kanye West may have had conflicts with the paparazzi in the past, but he's all about extending an olive branch these days

What’s the MTV Music Video Awards without Kanye West? It would be a little less head-scratching, that’s for sure and not nearly as much fun.

Yeezy took the stage at the Madison Square Gardens, telling the audience “Imma talk.” He meandered, as he is wont to do, said he respects everyone, even Taylor Swift. He doesn’t mention her by name but says, “That’s why I called her!” hinting at the feud and the Snapchat video released by West’s wife, Kim Kardashian West.

He also calls out Amber Rose and compares himself to Walt Disney and Steve Jobs. Natch.

But the real highlight of Kanye’s appearance was his premiere of a new music video “Fade,” which featured the amazing dancer Teyana Taylor. The music video only got steamier as it went along, even going so far as to feature Taylor naked in the shower with a male companion.

You can stream “Fade” on Tidal, and watch a 30-second snippet below.
