Kanye West Went On A Weird 7 Minute Rant While On The Ellen Show

Screen Shot 2016-05-03 at 10.15.26 AM

A Kanye West rant: is anyone surprised?

Kanye went on a “seven minute rant” during his appearance on Ellen DeGeneres’ show on Thursday, and it seems way crazier than his usual kinda cheeky, ego-fueled ranting. Like he seemed  kind off off? Or, high?

In case you don’t want to watch seven minutes of pure CRAZY,  there’s an abbreviated version below. Also, here’s a quick summary: Ellen didn’t panic during the thing, in fact, she stopped him a few times and asked him questions, further egging him on, but mostly she just sat back and let him talk. And it wasn’t a rant-rant. He was working towards a point, it was just meandering and Yeezyian.

Whether he should think-before-tweeting: “Absolutely not. What’s the point of thinking?”

Why he’s important: “I care about people. My dad lived in homeless shelters less than five years ago, to find out … he’s a psych major. My mom was the first black female chair of the English department of the Chicago State University. I was raised to do something, to make a difference.”

Who is left to create? “Picasso is dead, Steve Jobs is dead, [Walt] Disney is dead. Name someone living that you can name in the same breath as them. We’re one race, the human race, we’re a blip in the existence of the universe and we’re constantly trying to pull each other down. It’s like I’m shaking talking about it, I feel I can make a difference while I’m here, I feel I can make a difference through my skill set.”

Clothes are important: “I’m sitting with [President Barack] Obama, and Leo [DiCaprio]‘s talking about the environment, and I’m talking about clothes, and everyone looks at me like, that’s not an important issue. But I remember going to school in fifth grade and wanting to have a cool outfit. I want to take away bullying.”

And there you have it. What do you think- I mean, a lot of it is crazy but it makes sense, in its own way. I mean, weird context but that’s Kanye.

Kanye West’s New Manager Is Scooter Braun

Kanye West thinks 'KUWTK' should get all the Emmys!

Hey, maybe Kanye West can chip away at that weird debt, now that Justin Bieber‘s manager on his team?

Yes, the Biebs’ manager Scooter Braun officially works with Yeezy, and it’s been that way for about a month. It’s not a huge 180, as Los Angeles-based Braun shares management duties with West’s longtime rep, Izzy Zivkovic, so no fun firing stories yet. Still, it’s a pretty big change.

In addition, there’s no formal management agreement between them, but a source at Billboard claims that “Scooter is a friend and confidant and is consulting with Kanye,” so you know, who knows. West continues to be represented by United Talent Agency (UTA), so no change in representation. Only, in dudes who are molding his career…

To add to this news, Tidal FINALLY released the info of how many streams West’s Pablo received after initially withholding numbers for like EVER (very cute, Tidal, very cute). According to its own metrics, Pablo was streamed 250 million times in its first 10 days of availability. Not too bad, for a guy in debt.

Did you like Life of Pablo?

Kanye West Hitched A Ride With The Paparazzi

Screen Shot 2016-03-16 at 12.32.52 AM

When he’s not going APE**** on them, he’s…getting a ride from them?

A some VERY TRUSTING photographer offered Kanye West a ride on Tuesday, and the rapper actually took him up on it. Ya see, Yeezy was (probably pretty hammered or something, and) waiting for an Uber when the photographer filming him suggested something pretty dumb…that the rapper ride with him.

Maybe he’s new to being a photographer of Kanye? US Weekly reports:

“Where is this black sedan? Hang on one second,” West, 38, told the photographers while looking for his ride. “[I] Uber everywhere. Shout out to Travis [Kalanick],” the rapper added, name dropping the company’s cofounder.

The photographer taping West then told him that his coworker would give him a “ride wherever you wanna go.” Without hesitation, West accepted their offer.

“I don’t need Uber anymore. I just have the paps take me where I wanna go,” West told the camera.

Once in the front seat of the car, the dad to North and Saint West tells the men they’re going to celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak’s. While looking for the address, West politely asks the mem to stop filming.

Yeah, that could have gone REALLY badly for the poor pap. Anyhow, I guess they got Kanye to Pasternak’s gym, because the nutritionist and best-selling author can be heard laughing in this video while waiting outside for the rapper.

Pretty funny, but also pretty weird and dangerous. I wonder if the Uber ever showed?

Lorne Michaels Breaks His Silence On Kanye’s Weird SNL Breakdown

Kanye West likes to get his hair cut everyday

NOTHING surprises Lorne Michaels, not even YEEZUS.

Not too long ago Kanye West freaked out before his SNL performance, but Lorne talked him down and he went on to perform “Low Lights,” “Highlights” and “Ultralight Beams,” without a hitch. But now Lorne wants to set the record straight on what REALLY went down. E! caught up with Michaels at the Whiskey Tango Foxtrot premiere and set the record straight:

“That happened in his dressing room,” he explained. “Kanye’s been on the show a lot of years, and it’s always different. He’s an artist, you know? A great artist.”

To prove his point, Michaels referenced West’s appearance at last year’s Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Special. For his February 2015 appearance, the rapper performed a medley of “Jesus Walks,” “Only One” and “Wolves (feat. Sia):”

“When he did the 40th anniversary show—which I wanted him to be part of it—I had no idea what he was going to do, even 10 minutes before we went on the air. He arrived that day,” Michaels recalled. “But he just always delivers, and he’s Kanye.”

(Via E!)

He IS Kanye. And I gotta say, I’ve always loved his music even though these antics have been wearing on me HARDCORE. What I want to know is are you still a Kanye fan, after all that’s gone down with him?
