It’s been almost seven years since Kanye West famously interrupted Taylor Swift at the VMAs back in 2009 and we’re STILL hearing about it!

Over the years, we’ve heard quite a bit about the moment — whether it is Swift joking about it, Yeezy continuing to defend what he did, or even TayTay saying she is done with Kanye. Oof!

Well during the rapper’s interview on Steve Harvey‘s radio show yesterday — the same one where he talked about people disrespecting his wife Kim Kardashian West and apologized to Wiz Khalifa — he also talked more about that awkward moment with Taylor.

The Life of Pablo artist dished to Harvey, saying:

“It’s not about Kanye West. It’s not about Taylor Swift. There’s a lot of people in America that feel like they don’t have the platform to stand up and express their closet racism. Before they had that platform, one really easy way to express it was to say, ‘Eff Kanye West.'”

Whoa. Ye continued:

“As soon as Britney shaved her head and they saw that money going down, they had already marked what that award was going to be that night.”

Hmmm, go on. West went on to say:

“They ain’t expect no activist that had just lost his mama a year later, sitting there with a bottle of Hennessey. The only reason I drank the Hennessey in the first place is because I said, ├óΓé¼╦£Imma just have to get drunk to deal with all the lies I’m about to see.'”
