Although he has repeatedly apologized for what he did at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, Kanye West is still not done yet with Taylor Swift. The rapper attacked the country music singer once again when taking the stage of Bowery Ballroom on November 23 to celebrate the release of his new album "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy".

Starting his tantrum at the release party by saying that "everybody needs a villain," Kanye continued, "When you do things like what happened last year, it's disrespectful to everyone that's creative. It's a smack in the face to everyone who tries to do something real. If I wasn't drunk I would have been on stage longer! Am I the only one that's not crazy here? Are you f**king kidding me?"

When talking about his issue with George Bush, Kanye linked it to his feud with Swift. "Taylor never came to my defense in any interview, and rode the waves and rode it and rode it, that's the way I rode the waves of the Bush comment. I rode it. It's not about popular opinion. It's about when you look in your heart, and know what's right and what's wrong," he stated.

He might realize some people put on questioning looks during his rant as he said, "I'm not here to talk in no motherf**king interviews, nobody asking me no stupid a** questions." The MC went on to addressing the latest interview in which he lost his cool, "Matt Lauer's not a bad guy, I'm sure. But if you are a child that is being abused by your parent or you're a girl being abused by your boyfriend, the greatest win that you can ever have is for that person to hit you in public. 'You see? You see? I told you!' "

In between those outspoken speeches, Kanye did not forget the main goal of his appearance at the party. He hyped up his new album, saying in a confident tone "I always felt like I could do anything, but now I feel so fearless - after the year I had ... to come back and do 100,000 on the first day, digital alone... to do 600,000 in the first week... and I don't talk about the numbers. But what that number says is that people want me to keep making music."

I hate to break it to you, but I agree with Kanye. Okay, Taylor might have some creativity, but her talent can't beat Beyonce, Reba McEntire, Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Celine Dion, or Martina McBride. (All great artists she beat the heck out of.) Her music isn't the best thing ever, it's no better than Britney, Nicki, or Ke$ha. I'm sick of her snatching another prize every year. Please let artists with talent win something.

Musically, he's a talented man but he needs serious help. It's just sad. If I could give him some advice, I'd tell him to lead by example, hate never brings you peace. Kanye, WWJD?

I am amazed how many racial comments are posted and how some comments are not even directed at the act kanye brought upon himself. Kanye earned the animosity he has brought upon himself. The incident would have eventually been forgotten but he just could not let go of it and move forward with his career. Now he's going to reap what he has sewed once again. Bottom line Kanye is you need to get over it!!! Move forward!!! You are riding Swift's wave right now. I dont care too much about Swift's music, but she obviously has talent and she should be respected for it as well as you. I am very educated and I enjoy a couple of your songs even with its poor grammar lyrics. However, you continous attacks on Swift lacks a lot of class!!!

I know Black people don't look like monkeys & I've heard the word 'nigger' enough times that it rolls off my back. You morons who use those words are only showing your own ignorance. Buh-bye.

well Kanye is not to bright. As far as being bigoted I admit I am. I am bigoted against moronic idiots who will not leave the stage after there 15 minutes are over. If Kanye wanted people us to forget what he did then he should shut the f--k up. Now I don;t much care for Taylor Swift but that does not give West a free pass to act like a Jack ass. Oh sorry he isn't acting he is a jack off! ali gator chomp chomp chomp

Wow. Kanye may be a loudmouth and he may not always be the most articulate public speaker in the room, but he's probably making observational staements that are generally true a lot more often than you bigots could ever admit. Matt Lauer deserved to be criticized (and the way TV news gotcha interviews are used). Taylor Swift IS a nice woman, but her music is talentless bubblegum fit for Disney Channel rotation. George Bush may not hate black people, but he sure as heck didn't show any love for them either. Now, as for you comment section folks, it is obvious YOU hate black people.

Wow, way to be the bigger man Kanye... Lets break this down, you got drunk and made some seriously harsh remarks, then got tore up because of it, then you tear her up again for not coming to your defence and tearing you up. Why not go to her defense and say that it was the media blowing everything out of proportion and saying it's not her fault?? hmmmm...

Fuck Taylor Swift, i hate that talentless piece of shit, die Taylor.

Taylor had TWO multiplatinum albums, multiple top 10 hits, and was in the middle of a very successful world tour when Kanye interrupted her at the 09 VMA's. The only wave she was riding was the one she created herself. Kanye is riding Taylor's wave. And would the ignorant racist d-bags, black and white, please shut the hell up.

When will this guy shut up? When will he go away? When will he learn that educated people don't care about him at all? He acts stupid, surrounds himself with stupidity, and perpetuates the notion that black men are dumb idiots. And he gets paid to trash it all. Of course, this speaks volumes about his fans who reward his bad behavior. This nut really needs to understand that he is becoming the biggest joke in the music industry. He would never make it real life. His poor departed mother did not give him enough time outs or teach him much about getting along and learning etiquette. So, I guess, it's her fault.
