Kanye West is currently in a legal scuffle with a photographer over a physical scuffle at an airport, in a situation that I think was totally overblown. The photographer is suing Kanye for assault but if you watch the video of the incident, Kanye didn’t hurt the guy and didn’t start it.
Now a SEPARATE photographer is up in Kanye’s face and I am on Kanye’s side on this one 100%. As reported by The Hollywood Gossip (via TMZ), a paparazzo showed up at Kanye’s house at 4 AM to ask him if he was mad at Jimmy Kimmel. The only person Kanye was mad at was said paparazzo saying, “It’s 4 AM and you asking me, ‘hows it going’”?
There were at least 2 paparazzo there. Kanye didn’t injure, maim, or touch any of them, so good for you, Kanye. He wants to sue them for trespassing.
“You want me to be standing outside your house at 4 AM?” Kanye asked.

Kanye West flipped out over a joke Jimmy Kimmel made at his expense, which is odd behavior for Kanye. It’s so unlike him to overreact and take his feelings to twitter where he slewed a series of caps locked bizarre and thus hilarious insults at Mr. Kimmel’s way.
I’m on team Kanye solely for the entertainment factor (which is why I’m always on team Kanye, it’s the most entertaining team) but he handled this thing so poorly. But he’s got someone coming to his defense: Irving Azoff, a manager in the music industry who represents Christina Aguilera, Van Halen, Jewel, Journey, and a mishmash of other current artists and old favorites.
Mr. Azoff tweeted,
Hey @jimmykimmel @kanyewest kicked your ass. You look like a joke trying to exploit this.
. @jimmykimmel your low blow comment was uncalled for and shows that you still don’t understand the big time.
Really? Dude, come on, give Jimmy Kimmel credit. I think he’s made it to the big time by now.
Mr. Kimmel’s latest response to all this was (via twitter),
my response to @kanyewest last night http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=It05EvqFD6s&feature=youtu.be … #NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK
I challenge you to a rap battle @kanyewest #Iplaytheclarinet
I didn’t watch the whole video because honestly, I don’t care that much. I skipped around. He basically read Kanye’s tweets on his show, one by one, in his opening monologue with some tame comments.
Does anyone think that maybe they’re both in this together as a joint joke? I want to believe.

Kanye West is REALLY mad at Jimmy Kimmel. Mr. West took to twitter, caps lock in full effect, to blast Kimmel for joking about him on his show. When South Park called him a gay fish he didn’t freak out, but for whatever reason, he flipped out over a sketch Kimmel did mocking Kanye for his recent brag-filled interview with Zane Lowe. Here are his tweets, from oldest to most recent:
JIMMY KIMMEL IS OUT OF LINE TO TRY AND SPOOF IN ANY WAY THE FIRST PIECE OF HONEST MEDIA IN YEARS
JIMMY KIMMEL, I DON’T TAKE IT AS A JOKE…. YOU DON’T HAVE SCUM BAGS HOPPING OVER FENCES TRYING TO TAKE PICTURES OF YOUR DAUGHTER
JIMMY KIMMEL PUT YOURSELF IN MY SHOES … OH NO THAT MEANS YOU WOULD HAVE GOTTEN TOO MUCH GOOD
P-SSY IN YOUR LIFE…
YOU CAN’T PUT YOURSELF IN MY SHOES. YOUR FACE LOOKS CRAZY… IS THAT FUNNY?… OR IF I HAD A KID SAY IT WOULD IT BE FUNNY???
SHOULD I DO A SPOOF ABOUT YOUR FACE OR YOU F-CKING BEN AFFLECK…#NODISRESPECTTOBENAFFLECK#ALLDISRESPECTTOJIMMYKIMMEL!!!!
I LIKE YOU, YOU KNOW ME, I WENT TO YOUR FAMILY’S WEDDING
WHO YOU MADE IT CLEAR TO ME WASN’T YOUR FAMILY WHEN I WAS ON THEN PHONE WITH YOU 5 MINUTES AGO, YOU MANIPULATIVE MEDIA MUTHERF-CKER.
SARAH SILVERMAN IS A THOUSAND TIMES FUNNIER THAN YOU AND THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS IT!!!
He then tweeted a photo of Kimmel with the words “NO GOOD P-SSY” over it and then tweeted an image of Spongebob Squarepants holding a rainbow with the words “JIMMY KIMMEL FACE MOTHERF-CKER” (shown above, edited).
All he’s doing is giving Kimmel more material. Does he not realize that?

Oh, Kanye, ever the gentleman. On one hand, I get it – when you’re rich, it must be really hard to date someone that’s not “in the business” because you never know if they’re genuine or if they’re only interested in you because you’ve got money and connections and they want to take advantage of it. Still, I don’t know that “must be rich themselves” should be a quantifier for any relationship like it clearly is for Kanye.
If you missed his interview with Zane Lowe on Radio 1, which was broadcast in its entirety on Monday night, you seriously need to rectify that situation as it’s the biggest slice of insanity you’ll have all year – perhaps all decade. Here’s some choice quotes:
On his relationship with Kim K:
“She gave me everything. She gave me a support system. She’s in a powerful enough situation that she could love me without asking for money.”
On his approach to making music:
So I’m gonna take music and I’m going to try to make it three-dimensional, like [long pause], like in Star Wars, and the hologram’ll pop up out of R2-D2. I’ma try to make something that jumps up, and affects you, in a good or bad way.”
On race relations:
“I’ve reached a point in my life where my Truman Show boat has hit the painting. And I’ve got to a point that Michael Jackson did not break down. I have reached the glass ceiling. As a creative person, as a celebrity. When I say that, it means, I want to do product, I am a product person. Not just clothing, but water bottle design, architecture, everything, you know, that you could think about. And I’ve been at it for 10 years, and I look around, and I say, wait a second, there’s no one in this space that looks like me, and if they are, they’re quiet as fuck. So that means, wait a second, now we’re seriously, like, in a civil rights movement.”
“Me and Virgil [Abloh] are in Rome, giving designs to Fendi, over and over, and getting our designs knocked down … [We] brought the leather jogging pants six years ago to Fendi, and they said ‘no.’ How many motherfuckers you done seen with a leather jogging pant?”
Well, that was all very enlightening. You seriously NEED to listen to this interview if you haven’t already. It’s unbridled insanity at its best.

I’m not exactly sure when Kanye West‘s break from reality took place, but he is so far off the deep end now that I’m not sure if there’s any way to bring him back. Today’s case in point: during a sit-down interview with BBC Radio 1′s Zane Lowe, Kanye proclaimed that he’s the “number one rockstar on the planet” – and he meant it. He was literally 100% serious. He also insisted that Yeezus, his most recent album, “could be considered perfect”. I mean, look bro, it’s an alright album – good, even… but perfect? SMH, sit down.
Check out the clip here:

We posted yesterday about Kanye West‘s performance on Later… with Jools Holland, but apparently our praise was premature, as he was a bit of a hellraiser behind the scenes, which didn’t go over too well with the show’s crew. I mean, if I was a famous rapper, I would definitely want the carpets in my dressing room ironed, for sure.
The rapper flew to the UK earlier this week to perform his new track ‘Bound 2′ on the BBC Two show, but wasn’t impressed with the carpet being “too bumpy” in his dressing room.
Apparently, West required over half the 15 dressing rooms available at the studios, despite other acts such as Kings of Leon, Sting and Lorde performing on the same show.
LOL, no matter how much of an entourage you have, what the hell do you need 15 dressing rooms for? How long could he possibly have been in the studio to need even a fraction of those? People are so fucking weird and ridiculous.
I can totally see the whole bumpy carpet thing, though. No one likes a bumpy carpet. >__>
