"...Taylor never came to my defense in any interview!" Last night, at his record release show/party at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City, Kanye West went on a nine-minute tirade about, well, just about everything. This is not unprecedented.

George Bush, his 600,000 first-week record sales prediction, Matt Lauer—Kanye is even more off-the-cuff than usual. He even thanked the models for their "energy." It's a celebration, bitches.

At 7:17 you can hear an audience member shout, "Who cares?"
