Kanye West is ‘cool with the paparazzi’

September 12th, 2008 // 94 Comments

Kanye West was arrested yesterday for felony vandalism after smashing a paparazzi’s camera while in line at LAX. After being released by the police, Kanye updated his blog to let his fans know he still loves the paps:

We back in the lab!!! I’m cool with the paparazzi. This guy wasn’t cool. I gotta work now… I’ll rant later!

Kanye’s now instantly cool with the paparazzi, huh? Because these photos of Kanye and his bodyguard in Hawaii after posting bail yesterday don’t show the face of a man who’s happy to be photographed. In fact, if I could read Kanye’s mind, I bet you anything he’s thinking “I don’t own enough sweater vests….”

NOTE: Included the video of Kanye flipping the fuck out in the airport after the jump. If you enjoy seeing a famous rapper smash camera equipment like a two-year-old who didn’t get a cookie, holy shit, is today your lucky day!

    I don’t think there’s anyone out there that feels sorry for the pap and his gear. These people are parasites.

    Oh, and #1, you’re a loser. And a shitty speller too.

    Kanye West is a dick.

  6. wow, thats amazing! i see the roles are reversed now,,,back in the days security would give kanye a beat down,,,i cant believe they were holding the pap back after his camera got smashed….Money talks!

    Shit. The paparazzi need bodyguards now.

    What kind of fucking job is being a paparazzi anyway? Any dumb fuck with a camera can take pictures. They are parasites.

  12. havoc

    Did he bust a cap in some cracker’s ass or what?
    Drop a bottle of Cristal?
    Drop a gold tooth?

    Where’s the story here?

    “Anyway, like I was sayin’, shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey’s uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There’s pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich. That- that’s about it.”

    #10 – I watched the clip from the Palin interview last night. There’s no doubt who the dumb one is among the 4 candidates.

    It’s the photographer’s fault. Everybody knows that if you make too much eye contact with monkeys it really pisses ‘em off.

  16. havoc

    #13…OMFG!! You’re right!



  17. eastcoastgirl

    lol @ #13! That was hilarious.

  18. Jayfournines

    man, what happened to all the cool rappers? What happened to fuck the police I thought I told you that we won’t stop bitch i’ma kill you? Now it’s replaced with “Don’t take my picture waaah waaah I can’t afford a decent plastic surgeon for my mommy”

  19. viet cong

    I’d like to see more tits and fewer boobs

  20. dr strangelove

    Back in the lab? Is he being tested for syphillis again?

  21. Josey Wales

    #18 – They’re all dead.

  22. #8 ofcourse he can write. He’s a music producer duh! He wrote his song ‘Through the Wire.” Don’t be hatin.

  23. lloyd johnson

    Kanye was always unstable. Since he lost his mother he seems to be going off the deep end. Awesome new reality tv show idea! Celebrity Intervention. Someone needs to help this man before he kills himself.

  24. Pamela Anderson

    I’m f’ing Matt Damon!!!!

  25. KanyeWest

    I hates u all. If my mutha wasn’t dead she would tell me to get my bodyguard to find all you readers here and hit you with a broken camera. Then I would find all your women and show them who the real man is while you watch. Buy my music and MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS!!!! Jesus Christ what’s a real non gay man gotta do to get some privacy when he is out whoring LA.

  26. it's me Fuckers!

    ROFL @ 13!!

    Kanye is a fucking whiny douche. Even though I feel the pappers are parasites, I’d take their side over Kanye’s. But then again I’d take Michael Jackson’s side over Kanye’s any day.

    #23 “Someone needs to help this man before he kills himself.” Why put a stop to a good thing?

  27. edamame

    #13 oh, good god….too damn funny!

    Kanye, didn’t your mother teach you not to be a little whiny bitch?

  28. Lal

    STOP RIGHT THERE! Or the Macbook Air gets it!!

  29. hootie

    I can’t believe that douchebag has fans

  30. CaptainMorgan

    Sorry, but I have to laugh. Looks like someone is still “acting out” to get attention. How people can even think to respect a guy like this blows…my…mind.

  31. West Door

    LMAO #13!

    If I didn’t know who this guy was, I’d think that he was an 11 year old little boy fighting over a toy. Had to watch it twice to make sure!

  32. Pee Wee From Porky's

    Someone needs to tell him about the Ipod. It’s much smaller than that laptop.

  33. Sara

    If Britney had done this there would be headlines about her psychological problems. But, because it’s a man no one really even thinks twice about it. All these celebs need help but they probably won’t get it because of their cash cow status. So sad.

  34. Betty Rubble

    There’s only a matter of time until he chimps out again. They always do.

  35. bootlips

    He’s always a neeger to me.

  36. lota


  37. No Superficial please KEEP doing what you’ve been doing. If you stop now posting about black people, and other minorities your website won’t be as hot as the others. Trust me to the fullest on this. HUMAN POWER YEAH BABY YEAH!

  38. What is that slave doing out of the fields?…

    oh, he must be looking for his slave lover Whippy Goldberg.
