“If you like my music, listen to it. If you like her music, listen to it.”

US Weekly has obtained video footage of Kanye West in LAX Airport featuring him addressing his recent flame war, so to speak, with Taylor Swift. In it he says:

I want the best for that person, but there’s people going through real issues out here. There’s people that’s out of work. There’s people that’s in debut that can’t make out of the debt. There’s people in debt that don’t have a shoe, that don’t have a hit album out, also. The media just tries to make this ongoing story. I don’t think people care about me or her in that way. They care about their families. If you like my music, listen to it. If you like her music, listen to it.

This is not a “re-ignited” beef. Kanye West and Taylor Swift have a tenuous past predicated on him interpreting her acceptance speech at the 2009 VMAs, but it wasn’t much more than him drunkenly try to tell a bunch of people that his friend is the best. (We’ve all done that, right?) This all new, based on the lyrics of ‘Famous’ and Taylor Swift cutting the lyric down to size during her Album of the Year acceptance speech at Monday night’s Grammy Awards. And hopefully, this is the end.
