Kanye West Slams Taylor Swift in Newly Surfaced Audio (Report)
Gawker says a leaked recording made shortly after the infamous 2009 VMAs captures the rap star complaining about Pink's airtime and saying "my mother died for this fame sh-t."
Although it feels like a lifetime since Kanye West’s infamous interruption of Taylor Swift at the 2009 VMAs, it seems that the controversial incident is headed for a reprise.
What Gawker purports to be an audio recording of West on that fateful night recently has surfaced, displaying an even angrier and more bitter West than the one crashing the stage uninvited.
In the audio, a clearly heated West tells a tableful of friends that “Taylor Swift cannot beat Beyonce as long as [I’m] alive. … My mother died for this fame shit! I’m gon’ do this until y’all put a bullet in my head.”
West continued to rant about the injustice of having to sit through two Pink songs that “nobody knows,” instead of performing his own single, “Heartless,” which was “the biggest song of the year” and “had the most spins of the first quarter.”
Anyone who took his subsequent apologies seriously needs to reconsider the level of sincerity West threw into them.
And with the 2013 VMAs scheduled for Aug. 25, the long-standing tradition of Kanye West outbursts and controversies seems poised to continue.
