And just like last time, it was an awards show that set him off. During a performance in London over the weekend, the rapper ripped into a slew of people and companies during an 11-minute rambling rant … including, once again, T-Swift.
“Taylor Swift beat Beyoncé at the Grammys?” he bellowed into the mic during a tirade, which also took aim at Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie,” according to MTV News. “Beyoncé be dancing in heels and s**t.”
Was Kanye was once again sipping on a bottle of Courvoisier? (which he blamed for his 2009 outburst) Because, Beyoncé and Swift were not even nominated in the same category at this year’s Grammys. Swift only won one trophy, for Best Song Written For Visual Media (“Safe and Sound”) and her competition was Mumford & Sons and T Bone Burnett … not Beyoncé. But the "Halo" singer did win for Best Traditional R&B Performance with "Love on Top."
After Kanye embarrassed the then-19-year-old Swift at the VMAs in 2009, she showed her forgiveness at the following year’s show by performing her new song “Innocent.” Before she sang, a video montage played of that moment when he took the mic out of her hand as she gave her acceptance speech for Best Female Video and told the audience that Beyoncé deserved the award instead. “It’s OK, life is a tough crowd,” Swift sang at the time. “Thirty-two and still growing up now/Who you are is not what you did/You’re still an innocent."
Well, Kanye is 35 now … and he doesn’t seem to have grown up too much.
How will Swift respond this time? Seems like “I Knew You Were Trouble” has a whole new meaning
