Kanye West went on an interminable 20-minute rant onstage at the Wireless Festival in London on Friday night, and during that time he said some crazy ass shit. Sure, he pronounced his long-standing love for Kim Kardashian and claimed that he’s being discriminated against in the fashion industry, but know what else he did? Complain about fame to the point of comparing paparazzi photos to being raped. You know, totally the same thing!
From The Independent:
“I want to bring my family to the movies without 30 motherfuckers following me. Everybody here, they like sex right? Sex is great when you and your partner are like, ‘Hey, this is what we both want to do’.
“But if one of those people don’t want to do that, what is that called? That’s called rape. That is called violation.”
“So if I walk around and say look sir, I’m not feeling so good today, I need some space, can you please not fuck with me today? I need cut-off space, not violation.”
West said that he would “stop every paparazzi one by one” if he wasn’t on probation, adding: “One week I told a paparazzi, ‘Stop talking to me – I might be thinking of something like a new stage show, a new design. You want to shove a camera in my face, you just fucked up my whole trail of thought.”
Zzzzzzzz… I’m so fucking bored of this guy. If Kanye had ever ACTUALLY been raped, I guarantee you he’d be begging for paparazzi to take photos of him in exchange for erasing that experience from his life. THEY ARE NOT THE SAME THING. No one is physically touching you or violating your body, no one is scarring you for life, no one is overpowering you. You can’t bear paparazzi being in your face? Get a fucking clue – move out of Los Angeles, get a farm in Nebraska or some shit and stay out of the limelight. Don’t marry someone whose entire existence revolves around the paparazzi and being seen and photographed by them 24 hours a day. Fuck off, man.
Oh, and if that wasn’t enough, he went on a SECOND rant on Saturday night on stage – that one, however, only lasted 5 minutes. Apparently the crowd started chanting “We want Drake!” during his bullshit. Poor Drake, however, had to cancel because he’s ill and resting on doctor’s order.
