Kanye West's Grammy Response Isn't The Twitter Tirade You Expected At All

Share

That didn't take very long. Just hours after Taylor Swift launched major shade at Yeezus for him, well, throwing shade at her and her success, Kanye West spoke out after the Grammys on Twitter. But the tirade wasn't what you expected.

During her acceptance speech for Album of the Year on Monday, Swift made a sharp dig at West, saying, "There are going to be people along the way who will 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’ll know it was you and the people who love you who put you there and that will be the greatest feeling in the world."

West made waves last week with the release of his album The Life Of Pablo and the song "Famous," which had the lyric "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why, I made that b**** famous," a subtle reference to the jaw-dropping moment at the 2009 MTV VMAs when he upstaged Swift as she accepted the Moonman for Best Female Video.

But instead of rehashing his beef with Swift after her Grammy attack, Yeezy went in a completely different direction: addressing his surprising announcement that he's $53 million in debt.

Then, West the Artist entered a defensively enlightened phase.

Yeezus followed up by calling out some of his past antagonizers.

And finally came the crux of West's agony over his financial problems: providing for his family.

So here are some final words of inspiration, brought to you by West.

Back to the inspiration talk.

Come on Ye, tell them how you really feel.
