Kanye West Says His Taylor Swift VMAs Incident Was ‘The Beginning Of The End’ — But He’s STILL Defending It!

Kanye West is speaking out again about that Taylor Swift moment.

Yes, that one, all the way back at the 2009 MTV VMAs, when Kanye pulled the first ever Kanye and rushed the stage to take the mic out of then 19-year-old Taylor’s hands.

In a concert in Manila on Sunday — in which he also performed a freestyle called I Don’t Want To Be Liked — the Life Of Pablo rapper spoke to the crowd about when everyone stopped liking him.

Before performing his new track Famous, he addressed its inspiring moment, saying:

“This is the song that broke the writer’s block for me, because it’s something I wanted to say so bad that they told me I couldn’t say. Lady GaGa canceled the tour the next day. You know what night I’m talking about.”

Kanye. Did you ever stop to think people told you not to say that NOT because you would get in trouble but because they didn’t agree with you?

Obviously not, considering his next comments:

“So if I get in trouble for saying the truth, what’s being said the rest of the time? And I had to fight every day of my life, with the whole world turned against me, for saying out loud what everyone else felt. But that’s the job of an artist, of a true artist: not to be controlled by their finances, not to be controlled by perceptions, but only to be controlled by their truth.”

OMG, we can’t believe he’s still defending ruining Taylor’s moment.

They gave Beyonce the award for Video Of The Year! Like ten minutes later! You were and are wrong!

BTW, he performed Famous twice at this show.
