The producers of the MTV VMAs 2016 gave controversial rap star Kanye West four minutes to do anything he wanted to do on stage.
Kanye West who has had a very colorful history with the VMAs got on stage and for the umpteenth time spoke about pop star Taylor Swift at the award ceremony which took place in New York on August 28, 2016.
Speaking about his ‘Famous‘ video which had the waxwork replicas of celebrities naked on the same bed, Kanye West said “We came over in the same boat, now we’re all in the same bed. Well, maybe different boats, but… If you think about last week, there was 22 people murdered in Chicago. You know, like, people come up to me like, ‘Man, that’s right… Take Taylor? I love all y’all. That’s why I called her!“
In his stream of consciousness speech, Kanye West gave a shout out to his former girlfriend Amber Rose and his wife Kim Kardashian West. “It was an expression of our now, our fame right now, us on the inside of the TV. The audacity to put Anna Wintour next to Donald Trump. I put Ray J in it, bro. This is fame bro. I see you, Amber,” Kanye West jokingly said pointing to Amber Rose. “My wife is a [gangsta], not a lot of people’s wives would let them say that.“
Kanye West also spoke about the level of crime in Chicago and about himself. After his speech Kanye West premiered his latest video ‘Fade‘.
The self-absorbed music producer kept to his 2015 promise by giving away a pair of his expensive Yeezy sneakers to paparazzi after correctly guessing the name of his latest album before it was announced.
