Yes we were waiting for Kanye West to drop a huge rant at the 2016 MTV VMAs and he did but it wasn’t epic (he’s had better more organic rants in the past) what was epic was his “Fade” video starring singer Teyana Taylor! Oh My! She is spectacular—from her body to her dance moves. And we think she was wayyyy freaky with her man, Iman Shumpert ( umm they are parents to a little girl who they delivered at home when she arrived a little early).
Kanye started off innocently enough…”
I am Kanye West. And that feels really great to say, especially this year.
I came here to present my new video. But before I do that, I’mma talk. Now, later tonight, “Famous” might lose to Beyonce, but I can’t be mad. I’m always wishing for Beyonce to win, so… But for people to understand just how blessed we are, the Famous video was an expression of our now. Our fame right now. Us on the inside of the TV. You know, the audacity to put Anna Wintour next to Donald Trump. I mean, like, I put Ray J in it, bro. This is fame, bro. [He points at Amber Rose in the crowd.] I see you, Amber. My wife is a G. Not a lot of people’s wives would let them say that; my wife is a G. We came over in the same boat; now we all in the same bed. Well, maybe different boats, but uh. But if you think about last week, it was 22 people murdered in Chicago. You know like, people come up to me like, “Yeah, that’s right, tell Taylor…” Bro, like, I love all y’all. That’s why I called her.
Then came the video…Fade…where Teyana gave us “Flashdance” vibes to the make and we all had body envy! Then there was that ending tho…outrageous! The video can be seen on Tidal, but someone generous put it up on Twitter.
