Unless you literally live under a rock, you should know that the Video Music Awards took place in New York City Sunday night, and it's safe to say that amongst the award winners, lots of shade was thrown. And we mean LOTS.
It's also not surprising that the person who ended up throwing most of the shade was the king of shade himself, Mr. Kanye West. According to Cosmopolitan, Kanye was given a few minutes to give a speech before introducing his new music video for "Fade," and of course, he had to mention Taylor Swift, AKA his arch nemesis.
First, he started talking about how he loves Beyoncé and how he might lose to her, but then it got really juicy. When he started to discuss his music video for "Famous,"—yeah, that video—it got a little touchy.
"It was an expression of our now, our fame right now, us on the inside of the TV," he said, continuing with "the audacity to put Anna Wintour right next to Donald Trump. I mean, like, I put Ray J in there, bro. This is fame, bro!" Well, yes, you kinda are famous, Kanye.
It also wouldn't be a Kanye speech if he didn't bring up the queen of pop herself, Taylor Swift. "People come up to me like, 'Man, that's right, take Taylor down,' bro, like, I love all y'all. That's why I called her."
Whatever you say, Kanye. Whatever you say. Watch his full speech below:
