Remember how the VMA’s gave Kanye West a four minute select spot at this years’ show? Well it turns out he had something big up his sleeves, and it wasn’t just some banter about running for president this time.
Revealing all as he walked shyly onto the stage, he simply proceeded with, “I came here to present my new video, but before I do that, I’ma talk”. Covering a range of topics, addressing Famous, the Taylor Swift beef, violence in his hometown of Chicago amongst going off on other tangents, it was a short but sweet rant from the rapper. Check out the full speech at the MTV VMA’s below.

Following up his controversial video for Famous, which featured a number of naked celebrities in bed together, West has dropped yet another head-turning visual for the house inspired track Fade, from his February release The Life Of Pablo. Enlisting close friend and singer Teyana Taylor alongside boyfriend, and basketball player Iman Shumpert, Kanye dropped one seriously sensual video accompaniment for the tune.
Backed by the dark and gritty soundtrack created alongside collaborators Post Malone and Ty Dolla $ign, Taylor is seen channelling Fade’s classic 80s house samples, wearing the full Flashdance workout wear. It doesn’t stop there though, executing several moves in inspiration of the 1983 movie, the clip steps it up another notch with an out of the blue shower sex scene with her boyfriend, which cuts to the mind-boggling finale of the now cat-faced Taylor surrounded by lambs.
Many have commented that this may have been an artistic take on over-sexualisation, saying that at the end the singer truly became ‘pussy’, but there’s been no comment on Kanye’s intended meaning for the clip.
