Kanye West Toasts to Douchebags, Debuts New Song at VMAs

by at . Comments

Was this the song written for Taylor Swift?

At last night's MTV Video Awards, Kanye West introduced "Runaway" to the crowd, a single that started with the rapper going solo on a synthesizer before chanting: "You've been putting up with my s–– for way too long."

A week prior to the event, in an effort to apologize for last year's VMA catastrophe, West said he had penned a song for Swift. It's unclear if this was actually it, as subsequent lyrics included:

"Let's have a toast for the douchebags. Let's have a toast for the a------s. Let's have a toast for the scumbags. Let's have a toast for the jerkoffs. Baby, I got a plan. Runaway fast as you can."

Listen to Kanye's "Runaway" below and then compare it to Taylor's "Innocent," which also premiered at the ceremony and which was likely meant as a response to West. What an unexpected rivalry/friendship, huh?
