I am Kanye West. And that feels really great to say especially this year. I came here to present my new video. But before I do that, Imma talk.

Now, later tonight, ‘Famous’ might lose to Beyonce but I can’t be mad, I’m always wishing for Beyonce to win. But for people to understand, just how blessed we are, it was an expression of our now, our fame right now, us on the inside of the TV. You know, just the audacity to put Anna Wintour right next to Donald Trump. I put Ray J in it bro. This is fame, bro.

I see you Amber.

My wife is a G, not a lot of people wise to what I’m saying. We came over in the same boat and now we all in the same bed. Well maybe different boats but uh, you know. If you think about last week, there was 22 people murdered in Chicago.

Like people come to me like ‘damn, that’s right, take Taylor,’ like bro, I love all y’all. That’s why I called her.

So I was speaking at the Art Institute last year, and one kid came up to me he said, ‘three of my friends died and I don’t know if I’m going to be the next.’ You have to think, like, you know when you’re a senior and it’s the last month and you just don’t feel like doing anymore work. If you feel like you’re seeing people dying right next to you, you might feel like, what’s the point?

Like life might be starting to feel worthless in a way. I know times for me, I sit down and talk to older rich people, you know, aka white. they tell me don’t compare yourself to Steve Jobs, don’t compare yourself to Walt Disney. My friend Zakaya told me, there’s three keys to keeping people impoverished, that’s taking away their esteem, taking away their resources, and taking away their role models. My role models are artists merchants, less than 10 that I can name in history: Truman, Ford, Hughes, Disney, Jobs, West.

Broooooooooo, tonight we are here to have fun, I’m standing in front of my idol Puff Daddy, I’m standing in front of my wife Kim Kardashian West, I’m standing in front of the future, Chance the Rapper, Two Chainz, Jaden Smith, bro, we are undeniably the influence, the thought leaders. I’m going to play y’all a piece of my art. And I just hope you all have a good time. Play that.

    It makes no sense for Kanye West to have a fight with Taylor Swift. She is a musical star and almost everybody is listening to her music.

  • VanityInsecurity

    They gave him 4 minutes to do anything & say anything .. & he just rambled on incoherently about nonsense. he mentions all his idols & they al happen to be white men & then mentions himself.. like wtf? you are your own idol? How do you compare yourself to Steve Jobs, Disney, Ford? these men built great things & revolutionized the world. What did you do Kanye had 2 babies with a hoe?

  • laura

    Poor guy. He doesn’t even make sense, because he can’t use grammar rules…

  • Naynay

    so his role models are guys that made lot of money not actually men that brought something to society like martin luther king jr, ghandi, or rosa parks ? like seriously our society has reached a peak in stupidity when we learn our kids that money is the only thing that matters not love, knowledge or humility

  • Melissa Iris

    I like P.Diddy’s face…. he just looks like he’s thinking, “What the heck is wrong with this guy?”

  • Darius

    He makes all seriously but though.

  • Sprite

    you gottaSheik, Rattle & Roll.
