The Word: Kanye West’s secret rant about Taylor Swift and Pink
Remember Taylor Swift and Kanye’s beef? The VMAs? “I’ma let you finish?” Well, it turns out that Kanye was nowhere near finished himself.
An audio recording leaked to Gawker contains a male voice, said to be Kanye the night of the VMAs, ranting at length about Taylor Swift, Pink, how hard Kanye works, and racism. “Because I wrote my verse in two days, Taylor Swift cannot beat Beyoncé. As long as I’m alive!” he says at one point.
Later, his ire turns on Pink, who performed too much at the VMAs for his taste. “Pink performed twice! Two songs? How the fuck 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 noticed that she’s pink!” he says.
Oh man. I don’t necessarily agree that Pink’s performance schedule is the result of a racist conspiracy. But I do strongly feel that saying “I notice that you’re pink” is the best possible way to accuse someone of racism.
Despite rumors to the contrary, Kanye West would like the world to know that he’s more than man enough to handle his baby’s poo.
Us Weekly reported earlier this week that Kanye, while a hands-on dad, insisted on handing off diaper duty to Kim. Not true, insists a source close to the actor. “Ain’t nothing he wouldn’t do for that baby,” the source told Hollywood Life.
