Kanye West in Dept

I LOVE Kanye West and we all know that but, in this interview where he its down Minnesota Radio Station, I feel as if he puts himself on a high pedestal. But can you blame him NO, people use to play him before. . now look his career is at the highest peek. Watch this very explanatory interview. .
Part 1
On Blogs Influence And The Way He Chooses To Dress

When I was at the Grammy’s right when I got exposed to blogs, it was like the worst thing that could have ever happened to me. Do you remember this outfit that I had? When I had on these glasses, like these really cool shades on and my chest was out with all these chains and stuff…. I was like this is what I want to do and then the next day I so these blogs was like he was wearing gloves and he had this.. Basically tried to comprise me and beat me into the submission of regular walking down the streetness. I can’t do that anymore. I don’t base my taste level off what the trends are

On Cutting off Taylor Swift

So with the Bush moment there was a lack of compassion that we saw and then with my moment…Taylor this 12 year old…18 year-old girl… me cutting her off showed a lack of compassion with everything she went [through] to deserve this one moment. That caused her to like go off and have 100 magazine covers and sell million in the first week. That shouldn’t even be categorized with the greatest living artist that we have to date to be put in the same category. It’s just disrespectful, it’s retarded! For me, you can see the amount of work that we put into this…I put my entire life into this…I put my life on the line…

It’s like what’s so arrogant about that moment? If anything, it’s selfless. If anything, I’m walking around now with half an arm trying to sell albums, and having to go in walk in rooms and be afraid of my food getting spit in. I’ve lost all totally respect for you! And no one just wants to sit and look at the reality. Let’s just look at the 2+2=4 Okay it’s the best album; it’s the best video of the decade. The most influential, the most memorable…you can’t tell me anything that we remember more in the past ten years.

So the audacity of it losing anything, anything. It should be like Lauryn Hill, she won all those Grammy’s and she couldn’t lose. Guaranteed if it was the other way around and Taylor Swift was 12-15 years into the game and on her 40th video or a 50th video and she made the video of her career….do you think she would have lost to a brand new artist? Hell No!

More on cutting off Taylor Swift

The idea of cutting someone off at an award show…I didn’t know that was so new. I didn’t know it was the first time you know that the music ever played on someone. If you take The Dream, who wrote Single Ladies at the Grammy’s, as soon as he wanted to say something they completely played the music before he could say “Hi” to his mom or anything.

So there’s no reality to the situation but then also, what I learned is there is no reality to celebrity and because of everything that I’ve been through, it’s lead me to the point to be able to be way more an expressive artist. Deal with way more reality. You can’t anything away from me at this point. Canceling tours. I was touring with Lady Gaga. I completely lost everything but I completely gained everything because I lost the fear.

on Michael

Jesus died for our sins…Michael died for the sins of our media..Jesus had the bible..he had Wikipedia

I feel like fighting that battle that Michael had. I fight it also with explanations. People say, “Oh, you over explain yourself.” Well there are things that wont ever be explained during my time and I feel like when I explain myself, I’m explaining Michael…I’m explaining McQueen..I’m explaining the kids that just committed suicide a few weeks ago in Chicago…I’m explaining all of that because I felt suicidal, I felt hurt, I felt compromised in a way..

On Homophobia

I feel like I’m a crusader of opening people’s minds because in America to have taste….the way we bash people, the way we call people gay if they look in the mirror too long. Not that it’s anything wrong with people being gay, ….. taste has been thrown in the shallow box, like your shallow if you’re into putting yourself together better or if you want to take time to actually look at a black and white movie as opposed to looking at a bunch of explosions and you can’t be masculine to do that… but if you look at Fellini films and back in the day, men use to get suited up. It’s almost like you’re borderline not masculine if you don’t open the door for a woman.

On The Concept of EGo

Now I’ve finally cracked out of the shell and you can see when I talk, it’s not really that same joke of like the ego and arrogance and the dumb cocky sh*t I use to say. I’m really pass the concept of ego. My whole thing is, I really just want to help people by bringing levels of culture, ballerinas and crashing them right next to hip hop. How can we take this to how Michael took it or even take it further. In music we respect the past so much ……If Steve Jobs respected the first computer so much, we wouldn’t have ipads and iphones today.

Forgive me for using grandiose political comparisons. Just as Mandela blew up the buildings and eventually became president, sometimes contrary to popular opinion you have to blow up the buildings. You have to make a change. If you could see the emotion in Justin’s face when he lost to the Dixie Chicks and Cee-lo was sitting right next to him..the row crazy. I couldn’t even tell you that they won for. I have nothing against the Dixie Chicks, it was just wrong though…it was so incorrect. Why should you care about that when you’re a musician? But Kobe cares if they deduct 12 points that he just put in the basket….
