Well, at least he's got ONE thing right!
Kanye West's verbal diarrhea is flowing yet again, and the latest interview has him yabbering on about Michael Jackson, his baby mama Kim Kardashian and how he's the "number one rock star on the planet."
Yeezy chatted with BBC Radio 1 personality Zane Lowe and he made some very ballsy comments about himself and how he plans on taking over the world.
On his fame, Kanye told Lowe:
- "I'm not trying to regurgitate myself. I showed people that I understand how to make perfect. You know, [My Twisted] Dark Fantasy could be considered to be perfect. I know how to make perfect, but that's not what I'm here to do. I'm here to crack the pavement and make new grounds sonically...and culturally. We culture. Rap is the new rock 'n' roll. We the rock stars...We the new rock stars and I'm the biggest of all of them. I'm the number one rock star on the planet."
So what about MJ? Though the controversial rapper admitted that "there would be no Kanye West if it wasn't for Michael Jackson," he thinks he's surpassed the pop icon!
- "I've got to a point that Michael Jackson did not break down. I have reached the glass ceiling, as a creative person, as a celebrity...and I've been at it for 10 years. I look around and I say, 'Wait a minute. There's no one around here in that looks like me. And if they are, they're quiet as f*ck.' So that means, wait a second -- now we're seriously like, in a civil rights movement."
On his bestie Jay Z, Kanye says:
- "Jay Z is more realized than me. More of his dreams and aspirations have come true. You don't realize -- I am so frustrated. Like, I've got so much I want to give...And I've got a million people telling me why I can't do it ... I shouldn't be limited to only one place of creativity. You guys don't understand -- I did the Air Yeezys and they eBay'd for $90,000...but I didn't get a call from Nike the next day."
So what about Kim K and their daughter Nori?
- "Yeah, it's like family time. That's what Kim gave me. She gave me everything, she gave me family, she gave me a support system. She was in a powerful enough situation where she could love me without asking me for money, which is really hard for me to find."
