Rap superstar Kanye West was a guest on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show‘ earlier this week, and the interview was bizarre to say the least.
Here are some of the highlights from the eight-minute ordeal.
On the media:
“F*ck the paparazzi and whatever perception you have of me. Start with the truth, start with what everyone’s thinking, start there – put some dope sh*t with it.”
On the human race:
“Don’t tell me about being likeable. We’re one race; the human race; one civilisation. We’re a blip in the existence of the universe, and we’re constantly trying to pull each other down, not doing things to help each other. That’s my point.”
On Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg:
I’ve had dinner with his wife and told him how I could help the world and he said he’d help me and blah blah blah…I feel like if I had more resources, I could help more people. I have ideas that can make the human race existence within our hundred years better, period.”
On dead cultural icons:
“Picasso is dead, Steve Jobs is dead, Walt Disney is dead. Name somebody that’s living that you can name in the same breath as them.”
On the Oscars:
“I didn’t take the Oscars as a joke…it was like ‘all black actors can talk about the glass ceilings that we’ve dealt with in this town, you get your night, go ahead, Chris Rock’s gonna do it. Bam! Talk about how many times you’ve been blocked from being able to excel!’ I didn’t take it as a joke. It ain’t no joke.”
Tell’em how you really feel, Kanye!
