Taylor Swift Bashed — Once Again — by Kanye West
Taylor Swift may have moved on — way on — from last year’s debacle at the MTV Video Music Awards when Kanye West interrupted her acceptance speech for Best Female Video, but Kanye is apparently still stewing over the incident and resultant backlash against him. He used a pre-Thanksgiving concert to bash Taylor, who is now riding high with the release of the instantly platinum-selling ‘Speak Now.’
The latest rant happened on Tuesday, November 23, at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom when Kanye performed the entire track list of his new album ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy,’ according to the Los Angeles Times.
“Taylor never came to my defense in any interview … and rode it and rode it,” he told the crowd that included several celebrities including Diddy, Q-Tip, John Legend and Spike Lee. “If I wasn’t drunk, I woulda been on stage [when I interrupted Taylor] longer.”
“Lauer’s not a bad guy I’m sure, but if you are a child that’s being abused by your parent or you are a girl being abused by your boyfriend — the greatest win that you could ever have is for that person to hit you in public,” said Kanye. “You see?”
The Times’ wrote that the statement left them scratching their heads a bit. We understand what they mean.
So much for letting bygones be bygones during the holidays.
