Oh, Kanye. Your mysterious ways allude us all! He hates the paparazzi – so much so that he will grab cameras out of their hands and smash them to the ground (and end up facing a lawsuit for it). So much so that he will say this to you if he encounters you:
And yet… the French paparazzi are s different breed. They are refined, classy… they “respect themselves”, according to Kanye. And because of this, he will allow them to take his photograph, and will lavish praise upon them while they’re at it!
TMZ caught Kanye out and about and watched this strangeness unfold (video at the link) – here’s what he had to say as he got out of his car:
“Don’t ask questions. Just take the video. Don’t do like the LA [paparazzi]. I like how you guys, like, move out here. You’ve got like total respect for yourselves, have respect for the people that you’re photographing.”
“You guys take time off. At 8 o’clock, you’re not around people’s houses and all that. I just really appreciate and respect that. I understand that you have to make a living. So I appreciate [the respectfulness].
LOL, I can’t with this guy.
