Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were out and about in New York on Sunday, checking out The Lion King and trying to get away from their home in Calabasas, where there’s a huge fire threatening much the area. Of course, Kanye was also supposed to do a “pop up” concert in New York which was canceled before it even started, and the whole thing just seemed like a mess – go here to see some coverage of the near (or actual) riot.
Meanwhile, Kanye gave a radio interview a few days ago and of course it’s bonkers. Some quotes:
He doesn’t regret any of his tweets: “We’re going to be gone in 100 years. I can’t say enough.”
He reads the comments: “I wake up in the morning and go read comments…I like it. Any comments or whatever. Hypebeast is one of my favorite sites to go to. They’re hilarious. It’s just the funniest comments and stuff.…I go read it. Wake up in the morning, check it out, read some comments. I got this line on ‘Saint Pablo,’ checking Instagram comments to crowdsource my self-esteem. I was saying that sarcastically.”
But don’t comment about his family: “I’m crazy about my kids. I’m crazy about Kim. I’m so happy to be a father. I know when I talk about my music I get amped up. I wanna sit and listen. I want to learn what my daughter has to say. What she learns. I just want to learn how she learns in this world. I’m extremely protective.”
He insists that he told Taylor Swift about his song “Famous”: “Yes, I told her that we was going to say that. I didn’t tell her. I asked her how she felt about it.”
He’s a winner: “I’m a champion. I’m a winner. I came to innovate. I came to change. This is like Michael Jackson level. You need a guy like me in the game. I only know how to give 1,000 percent.”
Kanye’s story about the Taylor Swift thing has remained the same since the beginning, so maybe he did give her a heads-up about the song?I Don’t know. But also, like, can you stop talking about Taylor Swift already? If you’re SUCH a genius you probs don’t need her.
