Kanye is Still on Taylor Swift’s Nuts

Kanye West performed at the Bowery Ballroom in New York last night where mid-set, he stopped and went off on some crazy stream-of-thought rant about George Bush and Taylor Swift, who he thinks should’ve come to his defense. Via Vulture, jumped because it takes Kanye 800 words just to say “Hello.”

And now we are mere surfaces of the energy they are projecting on us. Everybody needs a villain, don’t we? We need to blame someone at all times. For me to be considered a racist for stating a blatant truth, an obvious truth, but the nuances of my words, because I am very particular with my words, and the emotion I felt at that time wasn’t worded exactly right — but everybody came and said ‘Oh my God!” — I’m talking about five years ago, not a year ago, I’m talking about five years ago, I’m talking about Katrina — and everybody said, “Oh my God, Kanye, I love you so much, I hated you until you said that. But now I see you’re speaking for me. I always thought you were an asshole but now you said something that represents me, but the whole time, whole time I’m thinking in my mind I was thinking that’s not exactly what I wanted to say, I was emotional, that was not exactly the way I wanted to say, I was emotional, that was not exactly the way I wanted to word it, but I wrote it, I rode it, just as Taylor never came to my defense in any interview, and rode the waves and rode it and rode it, that’s the way I rode the waves of the Bush comment. I rode it. It’s not about popular opinion. It’s about when you look in your heart, and know what’s right and what’s wrong. When you look in your heart, look at what the media did, look at how they exploited him, they said that he said it was his lowest moment and as a mass, as America, we took that as a fact, and if you look at the interview he said that was one of his lowest moments and he said it about ten different things! But because the popularity of me, they exploited that, to make you watch the interview and make you feel that he was stupider than ever, to think that a rapper’s comment could be his lowest moment. That’s not what he fucking said! That’s not what he fucking said! That’s not what he said! He said it was one of his lowest moments. But it shows you — the way they try to villainize, the way they tried to do that. Everything would have been okay, if they hadn’t played the audio that day … “

“It’s not about popular opinion, yo, but I’mma sit here and talk for ten minutes about the surface of the pool of the media cannonballing into my shit until you all love me as the hero Taylor Swift wouldn’t let be me because George Bush told her Katrina was a manifestation of human emotion that didn’t want me to be famous. Imma gonna ride it, but I ain’t about to love it, naw I mean? All I’m saying, is if Matt Lauer didn’t play that audio, 9/11 woulda never happened. It woulda never happened!”
