Egotism Is A Hell Of A Drug
If we ever dropped into Kanye West's subconscious, we'd find ourselves in a small room wallpapered with pictures of Kanye holding a picture of Kanye holding a picture of Kanye holding a picture of Kanye holding a picture of Kanye (repeat until your brain reboots).
This interview Kanye gave to The Mirror's 3am at the London premiere of his new cinematic masturbation piece Runaway proves this. There's really not much for me to say here, so I'll just let Kanye jack his brain off while all of us watch in the corner. Put on your clear goggles, because Kanye's a squirter.
Kanye on how Michael Jackson has passed the rhinestone torch to him: "With the passing of Michael Jackson, I feel a responsibility to bring things to our generation that can inspire and bring real culture to pop culture. I don't sleep any more thinking how we are going to fill this gap, and create something to inspire on the level he did."
Kanye on why his line of douche bottle holsters for the fashion elite hasn't come out yet: "I promised I wouldn't tear up... but have you heard of a little thing called Lindsay Lohan's Ungaro collection? That was like the 9/11 of fashion. It was game over for me after that as no one would take a celebrity trying to do fashion seriously. Being discriminated because I'm a rapper at fashion week. I quit music for six months because fashion did not take me seriously."
Kanye on how he's saying "BYE BITCH" to the whole Taylor Swift scandal: "She still hasn't hit me up. I'm over that. I'm an artist and I'm all about my movie now and am leaving that behind. Most people will be like, 'I guess it's OK Beyonce's video didn't win.' That's not me. After the MTV thing I quit doing music. I had to get back into the world's grace. I went to Japan, Hawaii, to get away. I thought I was going to give it all up. It's only through divine intervention that I am here today."
Kanye on making a movie about The Simpsons or Big Bird: "I don't want to be put in the hip-hop box, I'm an artist. Hopefully I'll hook up with George Lucas and do a film about yellow people with beaks."
Kanye on Kanye: "Investing in me is like investing in art."
Kanye on I don't even know...: "I'm like a tree, I feed the branches of the people."
9/11 of fashion?! Making movies about yellow people with beaks?! People chew a lot of peyote, drop a lot of acid, drink a lot of cans of Four Lokos, and watch a lot of Jan Crouch videos to come up with fuckery-laced quotes like this and Kanye just squeezes them out like nothing!
And can somebody tell Godfather Tree that he can stop feeding me his foolery nectar for now. I'm all full until my next burping.
