With Kanye and Kim Kardashian’s upcoming nuptials, the world is once again looking at the most insane rapper to have ever lived on planet Earth: Kanye West. To say that he’s confident in his own powers would be the understatement of the millennium. Not only does he think the world of himself, he thinks he is the world. Sometimes it’s funny, but sometimes that much self-love can be downright creepy and disturbing. In today’s article, we’ve got 10 outrageous quotes by Kanye West that will simply blow your mind. When you’re finished reading this, you will need to clear your head, we recommend these 10 inspirational quotes from Nelson Mandela.
10. God’s Vessel
“I’m like a vessel, and God has chosen me to be the voice and the connector.” Yes, he really did say that. If he lived a few hundred years ago, he would have had a following and somebody would have ended up burned at the stake. Most probably Kanye. He just seems like the guy one would burn at the stake for saying crazy stuff.
9. First World Problem Kind of Man
“I specifically ordered Persian rugs with cherub imagery!!! What do I have to do to get a simple Persian rug with cherub imagery uuuuugh.” What do you have to do, indeed?! We especially love the interjection at the end of his rant. It’s as if a four-year old little boy is speaking through him, isn’t it?
8. He’s the Nucleus
“I will be the leader of a company that ends up being worth billions of dollars, because I got the answers. I understand culture. I am the nucleus.” The man is 36 years old. If a 36 year old man says that he’ll be the leader of a company that will be worth billions of dollars, without having immediate plans to make such a company, most likely that man is full of crap.
7. His Favorite Rapper
“I’m my favorite rapper.” Kanye West loves Kanye West more than anyone in the world, there is no doubt about that. But to say you’re your own favorite rapper is something that even hardcore narcissists would have a hard time saying. Kanye, we know you think these things, but at least don’t say them!
6. Jim Morrison Just Turned in His Grave
“At the end of the day, I’m going down as a legend, whether you like me or not. I am the new Jim Morrison. I am the new Kurt Cobain.” Kanye, you are not the new Jim Morrison and you’re not the new Kurt Cobain. To even begin to allow such comparisons, you would need to sing something similar to what they used to sing. And that, my friend, is not the case here, nor will it ever be.
5. And Other Famous People are Turning in Their Graves
“I’m like Howard Hughes. I’m like David Stern. I’m like Steve Jobs. If anything, that’s a compliment to them. I’m like Michelangelo cause I’m the new version of that.” Alright, David Stern isn’t dead, but you kind of know that Kanye is just throwing famous people’s names around now, don’t you?
4. Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That!
“I am not a fan of books. I would never want a book’s autograph. I am a proud nonreader of books.” This has to be one of the most outrageous quotes by Kanye West. How can you even dare to proclaim yourself a proud nonreader and say that you wouldn’t want a book’s autograph? I’m sorry to say this (wait, I’m not), but Kanye could really use to read a book or two, because it seems that he’s a bit unknowledgeable.
3. The True Meaning of Responsibility
“I hate when I’m on a flight and I wake up with a water bottle next to me like oh great now I gotta be responsible for this water bottle.” With this line, Kanye killed us little people who deal with far greater responsibilities. To be honest, I really think he’s kidding here, or he’s trying to channel Jerry Seinfeld, because if he’s serious, then I don’t want to live on this planet anymore.
2. Giving Deepak Chopra a Piece of His Mind
“My girl set me up with a meeting with Deepak Chopra. I said, ‘Babe, you know what calms me down the most: success. You can’t meditate me out of my ideas! You can’t sedate me. What calms me down is success.” I chose not to comment on this outrageous quote because it is too outrageous.
1. Greatest Pain in Life
“My greatest pain in life is that I will never be able to see myself perform live.” Just like any decent and self-respecting narcissist, Kanye is so sorry for never being able to meet himself, to shake his own hand and talk to himself. And especially he won’t be able to see the wonderful show that Kanye puts on for his followers. Jesus! I mean Yeezus!
