In 2009, Kanye interrupted Taylor Swift during her acceptance speech and told her that Beyoncé deserved the award more. West revealed to his Filipino fans that what happened on the night of the VMA’s led to troubling events for Yeezy.

"This is the song that broke the writer's block for me coz it's something I wanted to say so bad that they told me I couldn't say. That night, when I went on stage was the beginning of the end of my life. Lady Gaga canceled the tour the next day. When I just said what everybody else was thinking,"

However, the rapper recovered from the incident and went on to release four more albums. With positive feedback from his Filipino fans towards the songs off his new album, Kanye is planning for tour designs for The Life of Pablo.
