Another day, another Kanye West concert rant.
Kanye was performing at London’s Wireless Festival over the weekend where he took a break from his 90 minute set to share his views on the world. The rapper discussed the perils of being a celebrity for over 15 minutes.
“The media paint me as if I’m some sort of villain or like I’ve got a bad bone in my body. I’m really more of a porcupine or a blowfish. And the photos they always take is when that blowfish is blown up or when that porcupine is defending itself from the lies and the control and the bullshit and the manipulation that you usually deal with if you are an artist … And sometimes my only response is ‘Aaargh! Get the f–k out my face!’” he said.
Yeezy, wearing a bejeweled mask, then went on to rant about big brands like Nike and Louis Vuitton, consumerism and the nature of black celebrities. He even compared the paparazzi to rapists. “I want to bring my family to the movies without 30 motherf—–s following me. Everybody here, they like sex right? Sex is great when you and your partner be like ‘hey, this is what we both want to do.’ But if one of those people don’t want to do that, what does that constitute, that’s called rape. That is called violation.”
Apparently audience members weren’t having it with Kanye’s rants and began booing him.
But that didn’t phase Mr. Kim Kardashian. He continued to rant at his two other performances during the three day festival.
Originally Drake was supposed to perform at the festival but dropped out due to illness, so Kanye’s set was lengthened.
You would think that people would be used to Kanye’s on-stage rants, it is what he is famous for. The only think bigger than Kanye’s ego is his opinion.Tweet
