A Kanye rant must be included in the ticket price for one of his live shows. London concertgoers were in for a 11 minute treat when Kanye ranted–over a beat of course–about corporations, sponsorships, the Grammys, the infamous Taylor Swift incident and not fooling with Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z‘s “Suit and Tie.” Guarantee Jay blew Ye’s phone up when he got word that his little brother was being an emo artist on stage, once again.

The Brit Awards are underway in London with a hefty lineup of some of our favorite Brits. And what’s a British awards show without a performance by the very American Justin Timberlake? It’s all love.

One Direction took the stage while Harry gazed into Taylor Swift‘s eyes the entire time (we’re totally making that up) as she sat in the audience writing her next song (yeah, we made that up too). T. Swift also performed in what looks like a wedding gown. Other notables Rita Ora, Frank Ocean, Jessie Ware and Lana Del Rey graced the red carpet. What was up with all the black this year? Boring!
