“Taylor Swift can NOT beat Beyonce as long as I’m alive!”
That’s just one of the lines that Kanye West said after he SNATCHED the MTV VMA Award from Taylor Swift, telling her “Beyonce had the greatest video of all time!”
It’s been a whopping FOUR YEARS since the Yeezy and Taylor Swift incident….. BUT people still can’t let it go! Today an audio hit the net of Kanye backstage talking to people in his circle about why Taylor didn’t deserve to win while also bringing up his mom dying because of this “Fame sh*t.” Can we say the 10 letter word that starts with an I and ends with
To his defense he was spotted turning up a bottle of Henny before he hit the stage that night (Seen above) and whoever leaked the record was someone who was in agreement with him and definitely from his inner circle. I also now that this year’s MTV Awards are right around the corner, so it sounds like promo to me…. ijs there’s nothing like perfect timing!
During the audio recording he doesn’t just stop at Taylor he also rants about why he wasn’t asked to perform “Heartless” but Pink performed twice–including a track that he had never heard –and he gives props to Eminem for winning Best Hip Hop song the year prior. But Pink responded via twitter today….and she didn’t take offense (See her response below)

I’d rather just let the [inaudible] speak for itself. You know, it’s like, I was happy to be in a situation where people couldn’t say, oh, I was trying to promote my own song. For the times that I’ve, like, defended myself… [Tape break] I’m pushing the envelope! I wrote my f–kin’ ‘Run This Town’ verse for a f–kin’ month! When I heard Eminem’s verse on the Drake s–t, I went back and rewrote my sh-t for two days. I canceled appointments to rewrite! I f–kin’ care! You know what I’m saying? And that’s what I’m saying. Because I did that, Taylor Swift cannot win over Beyoncé! Because I wrote my verse in two days, Taylor Swift cannot beat Beyoncé. As long as I’m alive! And if I’m alive, kill me then! Kill me then! As long as I’m alive, you gon’ have to deal with it. ‘Cause there ain’t gonna be no more motherf–king Elvises with no James Browns.
[A female voice asks, "Why are you so angry? What's the anger?"]
Because my mother got arrested for the f–kin’ sit-ins. My mother died for this fame sh-t! I moved to f–kin’ Hollywood chasing this s—t. My mother died because of this s–t. F–k MTV. It ain’t no love. What the f-ck was Pink performing? Don’t nobody know that song. Pink performed twice! Two songs? How the f–k Pink perform two songs and I didn’t even get asked to perform “Heartless.” “Heartless” is the biggest song of the year! It had the most spins of the first quarter! I don’t know that Pink song! But I noticed that she’s pink!
[A male voice asks, "How the f--k did Eminem get the Best Hip-Hop song in 2008?"]
Eminem won Best Video! Rap Video! Yo, when he won that s–t, I was so happy. I said, “N—a, I’m gon’ do this until y’all put a bullet in my head. I’m runnin’ up to y’all, put a…” [tape cuts].
