America’s favorite fashionista and raging rapper Kanye West launched into one of his infamous rants at the Roseland Ballroom in NYC during a performance at the Adult Swim Upfront. His target was his latest arch rival: the paparazzi. You see, after running into a damn sign trying to avoid their flashing lights, needless to say ‘Ye is not feeling those guys.
So here’s Ye’s latest speech as transcribed by the good folks at Complex:
“One thing about me. I’m the worst kinda, worst kinda, worst kinda celebrity…because all I do is make real music. All I do is sit in the studio and make real, real shit. and that’s it. That’s motherf**king it. That’s motherf**king it. So I don’t want nobody trying to run up on me with no cameras, trying to sell pictures and sh*t to magazines, asking me no dumbass questions. Throwing me off of my focus and sh*t. Harassing you all motherf**king day. I ain’t no motherf**king celebrity…”
Fun fact: This is the man who voluntarily had unprotected sex with Kimberly Kardashian, a pioneer in the world of famous for being famous.
Of course, there was more:
“[I had a friend ask me, ‘Are you gonna go on] SNL and you’re going to do like a skit about the paparazzi and shit and like humanize yourself?’ I ain’t here to apologize to no motherfuckers man. It ain’t about me humanizing myself. At what point did I become unhuman where I had to turn myself back? Or maybe I was demonized. Or maybe I was treated inhumane and not human in that kind of situation.
“I ain’t no motherf**king celebrity. I ain’t running for office. I ain’t kissing nobody’s motherf**king babies. I drop your baby and you sue me and sh*t. I’m trying to make some music that inspires people to be the best they can be. I don’t want nobody to ask NOTHING ELSE OF ME. Don’t ask nothing else of me. Motherf**kers chasing you down ’bout to make you crash and sh*t. And all they want is one n*gga to laugh and shit. Hell nah I ain’t doing no motherf**king SNL skits, this my goddamn life. This ain’t no motherf**king joke. That’s it. Stop that sh*t right there.”
Another fun fact: Kanye West shot a pilot for a sketch comedy show for Comedy Central, guest starring Kimberly Kardashian.
Another, other fun fact: Like it or not, Kanye West, you ARE a motherf**king celebrity. Sorry.
