Instead of an encore to his show last night, Kanye West decided that he was going to give a little speech or rant about Taylor Swift
. At first blush it looks like he is trashing her and I guess in a sense he is, but at the same time I think he is comparing her to himself, by saying that he rode the Katrina comments to gain himself a lot of publicity and never really addressed what he said until the past few months.
He says that Taylor Swift has done the same thing with what Kanye did to her at the VMA's in the sense that she has used it and rode the wave of popularity that has come with it and has kept riding while not really ever coming out and directly responding to the comments and never actually speaking to Kanye.
