If you watched the Grammys on Sunday, it should be very much apparent that Kanye West did not have Taylor Swift’s approval for that famous “Famous” line — “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous” — whatever Kanye might have claimed. Swift’s Album Of The Year acceptance speech was pretty much all about Kanye, even if she never mentioned his name:
I want to say to all the young women out there — there are going to be people along the way who are going to try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame. But if you just focus on the work and you don’t let those people sidetrack you, someday when you get where you’re going, you’ll look around and you will know that it was you and the people who love you who put you there. And that will be greatest feeling in the world.
But as Us Weekly reports, a cameraman recently caught up with West at LAX to ask him about his renewed beef with Swift. And for his part, West seemed to be in a fairly zen place about it. Asked if Swift should show him more respect, West said, “No,” and he had more to say.
If you couldn’t make it all out, here’s what he said:
It’s like, I want the best for that person, but there’s people going through real issues out here. There’s people out of work. There’s people in debt that can’t make it out of the debt. There’s people that’s in debt that don’t have a shoe. There’s people that are in debt that don’t have a hit album out, also. You know what I’m saying? It’s like the media tries to make this all a war story and everything. But I don’t think people care about me or her in that way. People care about their families, their kids. If you like my music, listen to it. If you like her music, listen to it.
I think he said “war story,” anyway. Your guess is as good as mine.
