Kanye West Slams Pink, Rants About Taylor Swift in Leaked Post-VMA Audio

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Kanye West has been caught flipping out again.

But instead of going off on a camerman at the airport, a new audio tape has leaked that purports to be of Kanye explaining why he notoriously interrupting Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV Viideo Music Awards.

Kanye Interrupts Taylor

Gawker has obtained and posted the recording, which supposedly features West ranting to friends at the Corner Bistro in New York shortly after the ceremony.

"I'm pushing the envelope!" A voice that sounds like West's says. "I wrote my f---in' 'Run This Town' verse for a f---in' month! When I heard Eminem's verse on the Drake shit, I went back and rewrote my shit for two days. I canceled appointments to rewrite! I f---in' care! You know what I'm saying? And that's what I'm saying."

We can't be clear we know what Kanye is saying, but he continued:

"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---ing Elvises with no James Browns."

Why does Kanye sound so angry, he's asked by a friend?

"Because my mother got arrested for the f-ckin' sit-ins," he replies. "My mother died for this fame s-it! I moved to f-ckin' Hollywood chasing this shit. My mother died because of this s-it. F-ck MTV."

The rapper closed his rant by taking some shots at Pink.

"What the f-ck was Pink performing? Don't nobody know that song. Pink performed twice! Two songs? How the f-ck 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 know that she's Pink! They put me in a f-ck' room."

A rep for Kanye has not returned calls for verification of this audio, but Kris Jenner will likely speak up soon and explain that West was just tired.

Please stop reporting on Kim and Kanye. Please. I can't take it anymore. Aren't there some new attention slores we can focus on?

Hated this guy before the Taylor swift incident, hated him more afterward. Didn't know I could dislike him more but after reading this, yea I think it's possible. WTH do sit-in's & his mom have to do with any of it? Kanye is just an egotistical maniac & as much as it surprises me to say it, he might just be more disliked than the Kardashians for many. The one GOOD piece of news I read today is the Kardashian's show is ending. The bad news is it supposedly isn't until 2015. PLEASE take this crap & all other idiotic 'reality' TV off the air!

Seriously hate this guy. Him and Kim are perfect together. Both are losers.

Sorry, but that individual really needs to learn a. How to speak English. His rant meant nothing - cause I can't understand a word he said!
b. Some modicum of manners and or/class - you don't interrupt a person getting an award, ever, like never ever!

Errrmmm, I thought these awards were pre-determined so people know if they're going to win or loose. Don't see what the fuss is about. Yes Beyonce is a stronger artist, but these awards have zero merit. Come the next year, nobody even remembers who won the year before....

Not sure if winners are told ahead of time or not. I think it sucks if they do but it makes sense considering some pre-record acceptance speeches. The public votes for the VMA's so I think that merit's a lot of recognition. As far as Beyonce being a stronger artist, I TOTALLY disagree. The info I found shows Taylor Swift has sold 100 million records, 72.5 million which are certified. Beyonce has sold 75 million with 50.6 million being certified. Plus Taylor's first record to hit the charts was 3 years later than Beyonce. Taylor first charted in 2006, Beyonce first charted in 2003. Not a country fan but I like Taylor OK because she's pop-country. Beyonce is talented, can't deny that but not a big fan of her. I just think she's always been cocky & only looking out for herself. Otherwise, her parents wouldn't have been her manager & stylist & I think Destiny's Child would have been together a lot longer. Anyway, not trying to start a war between Taylor & Beyonce fans, just looking at the sales numbers & giving my opinion :-)

Agree Swift is a no talent that should not be winning all these awards over other artists. Pinks number was the best of the night hands down. Kanye wants to be king if the Jungle.

What are you - an IDIOT??? Of COURSE Swift has TALENT - much much MORE than West! (And I'm black saying this so don't pull out the race-card!)!
They say we gotta stick together but never said we had to blindly follow a CRAZY-A$$ MANIAC! West sees himself as a .."Superior Being" which is comical to me! All I see is a RICH "brotha"!

Talentless people don't just win 6 grammys and over 130 awards..
Everyone has their own opinion but Taylor does have talent. You can't just go into the industry with no talent and win so many awards.

Kanye, you can rant all you want about other rappers because their in your league. But ranting about people who have the talent to sing, play instruments, and write music is above your pay grade.
