You'd think after dropping the lyrics "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex" (oh, and also "I made that bitch famous"), Kanye West would, you know, maybe not talk about her anymore. But nope, apparently he has so much more to say.

After performing "Famous" during a show in Manila, Philippines, Kanye insisted that he "just said what everybody else was thinking" when he interrupted Taylor at the VMAs (aka the start of their "feud")—and that that "night when I went on stage was the beginning of the end of my life." 

This seems pretty dramatic, but okay, let's go with it.

"If I get in trouble for saying the truth, what's being said the rest of the time? And I had to fight every day of my life, with the whole world turned against me, for saying out loud what everyone else felt," Kanye explained. "But that's the job of an artist, of a true artist: not to be controlled by their finances, not to be controlled by perceptions, but only to be controlled by their truth."

Look, we're all about Kanye controlling his truth, but ten-time Grammy winner Taylor Swift definitely got famous all on her own and she definitely deserved her moment in the spotlight at the VMAs. Just ask Beyoncé.
