Well, we were promised four minutes of uncensored Kanye West at the MTV Video Music Awards, and that's exactly what we got.
Should anyone be surprised at the fact it was awkward, disjointed and most likely never rehearsed?
Kanye took the stage at Madison Square Garden to share some thoughts going through his brain, followed by an announcement he was airing a brand new music video and song.
"I am Kanye West," he began. Well, at least that's been confirmed.
Like I said, it was pretty disjointed, and many things were said. He did take a quick moment to address the highly discussed Taylor Swift-Kanye West-Kim Kardashian drama.
It sounds like Kanye never meant to "take down" Taylor -- he just loves everyone, you guys!
He even had love for his ex Amber Rose, and gave her her own special shoutout.
(Can I just say Amber Rose's little shrug in reaction is so far my favorite thing to happen at this VMAs?)
Kanye even had the good grace to (sort of) acknowledge if Beyoncé's "Formation" video beats out "Famous," he won't have room to complain.
There was also a lot of vague musing about society, politics and life in general. At one point, Kanye listed himself as his own idol alongside Walt Disney and Steve Jobs.
It's definitely worth a read, so check out the transcript courtesy of Entertainment Weekly below. Oh, and I don't recommend watching that new music video if you're prone to nightmares. Just a tip.
