Kanye West - The Signs Were All There: Kanye West Has (Another) Furious On Stage Rant
Recent TMZ papping evidently still smarts
Sometimes you can just let people speak for themselves. Kanye West, you might recall, was recently papped by TMZ walking into a signpost, an incident that caused him so much embarrassment he took it out on the surrounding photographers, effin’ and jeffin’ all over the shop at them.
Well, the incident has clearly rankled with Ye, and some footage posted on YouTube from a concert of his at the Roseland Ballroom last night showed he was in no mood to move on. "One thing about me. I'm the worst kinda, worst kinda, worst kinda celebrity...because all I do is make real music” he fumes. “All I do is sit in the studio and make real, real shit. and that's it. That's mother*cking it. That's mother*cking it. So I don't want nobody trying to run up on me with no cameras, trying to sell pictures and shit to magazines, asking me no dumbass questions. throwing me off of my focus and shit. Harassing you all motherfucking day. I ain't no mother*cking celebrity..."
He wasn’t done there either: "[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 sh*t 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 mother*cking celebrity. I ain't running for office. I ain't kissing nobody's mother*cking 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*ckers chasing you down 'bout to make you crash and shit. And all they want is one nigga to laugh and sh*t. Hell nah I ain't doing no mother*cking SNL skits, this my goddamn life. This ain't no mother*cking joke. That's it. Stop that sh*t right there." It took a while to star out all the swears there. Is Kanye right? Or should he know by now that the sort of attention he receives comes with the territory? Check out the Youtube footage below.
