Kanye West has spoken! And this time, he did it without being secretly recorded or going on a Twitter rant!

“It’s like, I want the best for that person, but there’s people going through real issues out here,” he explained. “There’s people out of work. There’s people in debt that can’t make it out of debt. There’s people that’s in debt that don’t have a shoe. There’s people that are in debt that don’t have a hit album out also — you know what I’m saying?”
For those unfamiliar with the latest feud, Ye stirred the pot with a song called “Famous,” in which he declares, “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that bitch famous.”

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 will know that it was you and the people who love you who put you there. And that will be the greatest feeling in the world.”
