Yeezus, Kanye, give it up already…
When Kanye stopped by Ellen DeGeneres’s TV talk show yesterday, he put on a typically WTF display of egocentric eccentricity.
He told Ellen about asking Mark Zuckerberg for $US53m to “help more people” and claimed he didn’t regret a single one of his hundreds of insane tweets.
But Kanye’s most bizarre comments came when he turned to his dream of bringing his footwear to the masses.
“I called the head of Payless, and I said, ‘I want to work with you. I want to take all this information that I’ve learned from sitting at all these fashion shows and knocking down all these doors and buying all these expensive clothes, and I want to take away bullying,’” he told Ellen.
“I have to be the Michael Jackson of apparel in order to break open the doors for everyone that will come after I’m gone, after I’m dead, after they call me Wacko Kanye,” he said.
After pondering the Great One’s words, we think it translates this way: if Payless takes him up on his offer then he could flog more of his shoes cheaper and there’d be less bullying around his expensive kicks and just like Michael Jackson had to fight to get on MTV in the 1980s he’s a champion of… er… equal apparel for all. Or something.
Kanye concluded his rant with: “I’m sorry daytime television, I’m sorry for the realness.”
To paraphrase one of his mates, Yeezy’s got 99 problems but realness aint’ one.
