Yeezy Strikes Again… Rapper Launches Verbal Attack On Taylor Swift And Matt Lauer During Live Performance

- By Bossip Staff

Here we go again… Kanye West can definitely hold a grudge, and he’s not one to act shy about it. Just when we thought things were cool between him and Taylor Swift he decided to let us all know how he really feels about her.

Early this morning at a surprise performance of his new album My Beautiful Dark And Twisted Fantasy at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom, around 1 a.m. Yeezy put Taylor Swift on blast for using his infamous VMA interruption to propel her fame:

“Taylor never came to my defense at any interview,” West ranted. “And rode the waves and rode it and rode it,” he sniped of Swift.

And if you think Ye was done with Matt Lauer after his last Twitter tantrum, you thought wrong.

West also railed about the “Today” show interview, saying former President George W. Bush’s words were twisted out of context in order to exploit Kanye’s fame and ignite stronger controversy:

“Because [of] the popularity of me, they exploited that…That’s not what he fawking said!” West railed. “That’s not what he said! He said it was one of his lowest moments. But it shows you—the way they try to villainize, the way they tried to do that.”


Kanye and his rants are getting to be a bit much. He needs to get a good therapist because all this public venting is just taking away from his artistry.

Not to mention, as much as he stays griping he needs to let go of some of these grudges. Get that isht out your system and keep it moving!

    Stop messing with this man. Yall know he’s mental.

    • Aimee

      I agree! He needs a psychologist who likes a challenge.

    • Thaddious

      He’s not mental, he just doesn’t understand white people.

      Trying to find reason with white people drives black men crazy every.

      WE know Beyonce got robbed. The same thing happens at awards shows and pageants every year. And we all know why-

    All he said was true! And I don’t feel he shouldve apologized for the Bush comment! Hell wat he said was RIGHT! Gtfoh traylor Swift AND george bush!

  • purple love

    With brilliance comes insanity thats all

    • TDT

      100% agree. And as a music lover I certainly hope that Kanye does not seek help for a VERY long time. He can get therapy once he retires from music as far as I am concerned.

    • daisy jay

      Well said.

  • lala

    Poor thing. Seems the richer n more famous these ppl are, the more miserable they r. All tht money n still not happy.

  • ThatsWhatThatIS

    Matt and George mind f**k’d Ye now he can’t get over it!! He should have never apologized to George Bush.. George Bush never apologized to the people who were effected by Katrina!!

  • nikki88

    i dont think saying “she didnt come to my defense” was the right wording for it. but he had a good point. the girl boomed after all this happened…and to this day still talks about it. even made a song for him…if she was so over it like she claims to be…she would have stepped up and told the world to move on. but she needed the boost.

  • Matix B

    Please he does the same shyt, keep rehasing old shyt to stay contriversial. Faq, get a life Kanye enjoy your success and shut the faq up for once GOT Damn it! Your cry baby shyt pissing me off to no end.

  • uhh yeah ok

    I feel sorry for this guy because they really are doing a mind fk on him. I think he’s right but his delusions of grander null his very true points. He simple doesn’t know how to word his thoughts right and loses his opportunity to make people understand. He needs a mouth piece- he needs to ZIP it.

  • juliemango

    Taylor owes ye $ for helping 2 boost her career!!!

  • Matix B

    He’s the biggest puzzy ever, hands down. If it wasn’t for his folly know one would have gone and bought 1.5 million Taylor Swifts records. Shut the faq up next time and no one will take your shine douchbag.

  • Matix B

    His new joint isn’t even all that anyway, too busy worries about a 19 year old. SMFH, worry about the next broad you’ll be in, or your soundscan numbers. Faq Taylor’s crying azz too.

  • yvonne

    I like this guy but he makes it very hard to defend him and be on his side, i mean let this sh*t go already, theres no way taylor was going to defend him, she used the whole thing to enhance her career.

  • jerry

    leave kanye alone. He speaks the truth and yep, the media tried to fck him but the people speaking cuz he selling. His album is amazing!

    • Doc.

      i do believe taylor swift did ride that train to boost her career cause everyone knows she got nothing on beyonce’s voice or music. if kanye didn’t put her on blast last yr the media wouldn’t of been up taylor’s skinny a$$ and no1 would of focused on her cause honestly i never heard of her before that but it is what it is

  • bhinney

    Why would Taylor defend him? He embarrased her. Kanye needs to stop running his mouth like a idiot. Matt nor bush give a crap about his its business baby. Kanye denounced his religion for fame now the fame is turning on him. He is whiny like a girl. His ego is too big. Kanye needs to get over himself he is just a rapper he is not saving lives. Taylor is very humble that’s probably why she is out selling everyone. Kanye need to realize white ppl are slow to forgive blacks. So he needs to be a man and move on and stop talking about Matt and Taylor cuz at the end of the day no one cares

  • jy

    what an ignorant gay fish!

  • Fab.

    Someone needs to take every award she’s ever received or will receive cuz the BISH CANT SING

  • GN

    I understand that he’s trying to show some empathy for Bush and Taylor Marsh, but it makes not even a little bit of difference whether Bush said that Kanye’s post-Katrina remarks were *the* worst moment of his presidency, or *one* of the worst moments. Between the people who lost their lives during Katrina, the Iraq Wars for which no evidence was found to back up Bush’s claims of WMDs, or 9/11, or the economic disaster starting in 2007, an entertainer’s remarks shouldn’t have been on the top 100 in terms of poor moments for Bush. Bush was villified because he promoted policies which devastated a lot of people; there’s no cleaning that up.

    This was bad on Bush’s part, period. As for the media, it is what it is. The notoriety which the media creates for Kanye also helps him to sell records. He needs to be mindful that the media loves to prop up and tear down stars to sell ratings, page hits, etc., but he benefits from it as well. He’s not President; he’s a celebrity and, as such, is part of that machine.

    • her?yeahher

      co sign 100% GN.

      it’s g.bush who needs to apologize for all he’s done. not kanye.

  • Peace

    Kanye is a very honest man.
