Kanye West has certainly been busy this week, and we’re having a hell of a time trying to keep up!
After West’s Thursday night Madison Square Garden fashion show and album release party, he reportedly gave a speech to the Kardashian-Jenner clan that dissed Taylor Swift and Adele and claimed that Monday night’s Grammy Awards were racist.
According to a witness, West got up and stopped the music before he began his speech. “Listen. I know I come down hard on you. It’s because I see something in each and every one of you,” he allegedly told the gathered members of his extended family. “I want to thank you for being my soldiers.”
“I’m the most influential artist of our time,” he continued. “I knocked the entire fashion industry on their f—king a–es tonight. When I started everyone laughed at me.”
He then took aim at Taylor Swift, who he had already claimed he could still have sex with during one of his songs on the new album.
“There’s nobody in the world who owes me more than Taylor Swift,” one witness heard him say. “She was nobody.”
The speech continued as West took aim at the Grammys, which he claimed were racist, and then at Adele.
“Everybody makes a big deal out of Adele, but she’s no Aretha Franklin,” he allegedly said.
Saturday, West took the Saturday Night Live stage to perform Ultralight Beam off his latest album The Life of Pablo after tweeting he was $53 million dollars in debt.
While fans were still reeling from his financial revelation, he shocked the audience even further by bringing out R&B veterans El Debarge and Kelly Price to perform with him on stage. Many found the trio puzzling to say the least and even more head scratching ensued on social media.
As if that wasn’t enough, then West went on to drop his album directly after performing his set.
