Kanye West was granted time during the MTV VMAs to present his new music video and to talk about whatever he wanted … seriously. So of course, the world clinched their jaws as the rapper took the stage to essentially to speak Kanyeisms.

The rapper, clad in all white, took on a number of topics, including fame, Taylor Swift and his famous wife, Kim Kardashian. In case you missed it, here are five things Yeezy ranted about during his speech.

Being Famous: Kanye defended his controversial “Famous” video and explained that the video was basically about famous people and how they all essentially came over “on the same boat.” “For people to understand just how blessed we are, [Famous] was an expression of our now, our fame right now, us on the inside of the TV… [I had the] audacity to put Anna Wintour right next to Donald Trump.”

Ye even gave his ex, Amber Rose, a shout out before calling out his “G” of a wife.

Taylor Swift: After mentioning that 22 people were killed in Chicago last week, West discussed the recent controversy between he and Taylor Swift. The rapper revealed yet again that he called the singer to get permission to call her a “bit*h” and suggest he made her “famous” in his track “Famous.” “Bro, I love all of y’all. That’s why I called her.”

Three Keys To Keeping People Impoverished: After explaining that he’s been advised by “rich white people” to not “compare yourself to Steve Jobs. Don’t compare yourself to Walt Disney,” the rapper broke down the three keys to keeping people impoverished. “That’s taking away their esteem, taking away their resources, and taking away their role models. My role models are artists, merchants. There’s less than ten that I can name in history. Truman. Ford. Hughes. Disney. Jobs. West.”
