What Stupid Egomaniacal Shit Did Kanye Say Now?
“Yo, why didn’t this car transform into a robot while I was in it? I’m the black Alfred Hitchcock!”
Just before performing on SNL over the weekend, Kanye West lost his damn mind after parts of his set were moved and threatened to walk off the show until Lorne Michaels personally came and talked him down. Even better, Page Six has a recording of the meltdown, and it’s everything you’ve come to expect from Kanye or an eight-year-old who just got told to turn his Xbox off and go to bed. Rolling Stone reports:
West’s infamous ego then seems to take over during the tirade. “Are they fucking crazy, bro? By 50 percent. Stanley Kubrick, Apostle Paul, Picasso… fucking Picasso and Escobar. By 50 percent, more influential than any other human being.
“Don’t fuck with me. Don’t fuck with me. Don’t fuck with me,” he continues. “By 50 percent, dead or alive, by 50 percent for the next thousand years. Stanley Kubrick. Ye.”
If people are still talking about Kanye West in a thousand years, it’s because science found a way to use his massive fucking head to plug a hole in the ozone layer so the ice caps don’t melt. Short of that, dude, you’re disposable pop culture who married into even more disposable pop culture. There are regular, ordinary people out there fighting to stop black lives from getting indiscriminately murdered by cops in the streets, and you’re over here throwing a hissy fit because somebody moved a light. A light. Those human beings are influential. You, on the other hand, will be a bullshit question during trivia night at some lame-ass bar. That’s your legacy. A Clockwork Nobody.
