Kanye West goes on NSFW rant over Taylor Swift VMA moment: 'Say what you f--king feel'

Kanye West Goes on Mid-Concert Rant Against Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga


Kanye West is still insisting he made Taylor Swift "Famous."

The Life of Pablo rapper once again addressed his 2009 VMA moment with the singer after performing his single, "Famous," (where he takes credit in the lyrics for Taylor's celeb status) during a Manila, Philippines show on Saturday.

"I said what everybody else was thinking," he told the crowd.

"This is the song that broke the writer's block for me," Kanye says of "Famous." "'Cause it's something I wanted to say so bad that they told me I couldn't say."
