Kanye West Responds to Taylor Swift's Grammys Speech (Video)

Kanye West is speaking out about Taylor Swift‘s speech at the Grammys for the first time!

The 26-year-old singer gave a well thought-out public response to Kanye‘s lyrics in the song “Famous,” in which he tried taking credit for her success.

Kanye was asked by photographers at the airport if he thinks Taylor should show him more respect.

“No,” Kanye said. “It’s like, I want the best for that person, but there’s people going through real issues out here. There’s people out of work. There’s people in debt that can’t make it out of the debt. There’s people that’s in debt that don’t have a shoe. There’s people that are in debt that don’t have a hit album out also — you know what I’m saying? … I don’t think people care about me or her in that way. People care about their families, their kids. If you like my music, listen to it. If you like her music, listen to it.”

    I think he wrote another stupid song: “There’s”

    Thanks to you.

    There’s people out of work.

    Like you.

    There’s people in debt that can’t make it out of the debt. There’s people that’s in debt that don’t have a shoe. There’s people that are in debt that don’t have a hit album out also — you know what I’m saying? …

    Yeah, you’re stupid.

  • Me

    I don’t think people care about me or her in that way.

    That’s-a-right!

  • Me

    People care about their families, their kids.

    Ya don’t say!

    If you like my music, listen to it. If you like her music, listen to it.”

    No!

    what is he babbling about

    What he’s saying makes total sense. But it sounds like someone in his inner circle schooled him.

  • YupVideoFever

    At least he’s on his meds again. I started to worry about Kim.
    After the latest Taylor (and I don’t even like her) scandal I see Kanye differently – not an artist any more, but a sociopath with this huge itching ego.

  • Anna

    Don’t be fooled. His publicist has clearly told him to not bad mouth or retaliate against the whole Swift thing.

    I do think Kim Kardashian got her karma for treating Kris Humpries like $hit she might have the money and fame that she was craving for but she also got all the crap and the drama of being married to him. It’s like what that famous quote says BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISHED FOR YOU MIGHT JUST GET IT!!!

    … and don’t forget to give me money cause even though I am rich and my wife is rich, I am 53 million in debt … you know what I’m saying. I got issues .. you know .. I can’t express myself without your money .. give it to me .. you know what I’m saying …

    Oh humble Kanye for his own profit

    HAHAHA you’re spazzin. Kanye got you all fucked up.

  • Lisa Patterson

    He is so damn jealous of Taylor and her MAJOR success. What does the removing of his set and Taylor have in common? It is two completely different topics. THAT LITTLE GREEN EYED MONSTER DWELLS IN KANYE. ESPECIALLY IF THE SUCCESSOR IS WHITE AND A WOMAN.

  • http://cantreadgood.com/ statrick

    Taylor is a fake ass robot. She told Kanye personally that she was Ok with the song lyric and then switch it up on him. Two faced bitch. #facts

    KANYE WEST FILES FOR BANKRUPTCY AFTER $6 MILLION DOLLAR PROPOSAL TO KIM KARDASHIAN…

    “I’m not broke-broke like yall …I’m Donald Trump broke”.. as he was leaving a court house.

    AND…

    Late last week, streetwear e-tailer, Karmaloop, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy with a reported $100 million in debt.

    I wonder why humans choose to help Kayne or Karmaloop…or…trashy Kardashians get richer instead of putting their money on other artists with character. It’s because of the public that these people get the attention and money they get.

    IT’S YOUR FAULT – remember THAT!
