Today, Kanye West takes his talents to ‘The Ellen Show’ and in his usual fashion, has the public talking. Ye’s new rant is full of some pretty forward thinking thoughts, coupled with a bit of confusion, sprinkled with a tad bit of bleeped-out profanity. Peep a few excerpts.
I understand Mark Zuckerberg doesn’t use Twitter, even though I have had dinner with him and his wife and told them about how I wanted to help the world, and he said he’d help me, and blah blah blah. That’s how it feels though, it’s like the pursuit of happiness, it’s like you’re trying to sell this bone density machine, you know in that movie….
Feeling he can change the world:
I feel that if I had more resources, I could help more people. I have ideas that can make the human race’s existence within our 100 years better. Period. F–k the paparazzi, whatever perception you have of me, starting with the truth, started with what everyone’s thinking, start there, put some dope s–t with it.
His family background:
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.
I didn’t take the Oscars as a joke. You know, All black actors can talk about the glass ceilings we’ve dealt with, talk about how many times you’ve been blocked from being able to excel. It ain’t no joke.
His creative musical process:
I have a condition called synaesthesia where I see sounds. Everything I sonically make is a painting. I see it. I see the importance and the value of everyone being able to experience a more beautiful life.
The importance of apparel:
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.
