Let’s face it – last night at the Video Music Awards wasn’t the first time that Kanye West made an ass of himself. Or the second time. Or the… never mind. At this point he is as famous for rapping as he is for running off his mouth. I’d just like to take a second and tell the NY Times that they’re full of horsepuckey. Kanye West is not a “provocateur.” Provocateur implies some sort of intelligence, that their assholy behavior is in some way targeted and intended. Kanye is just a self-important douchebag. That’s all.
ANYWAY. We’ve assembled a damning list of Kanye’s worst (best) moments, as well as video of Kanye at the VMAs ruining Taylor Swift‘s evening. Check it out.
Kanye West’s Douchiest Moments:
Stumped Mike Myers (and the rest of the world) by proclaiming on national TV that “George W. Bush hates black people”.
Told Playboy in 2006 “I’m definitely in the history books already”.
Went on stage at 2006 MTV Europe Music Awards after “Touch the Sky” failed to win the “Best Video” award and argued with the winners that he should have won instead.
Lost all 5 awards he was nominated for at 2007 VMAs, declared he was “never coming back”. Came back.
Got in a fight with Matt Stone and Trey Parker over a South Park episode calling him a “gay fish”.
Stole an award from a 19 year old country singer on stage at the VMAs and argued that Beyonce should have it.
Kanye West’s Stupidest Quotes:
“O.J. Simpson, amazing. Is he not? What he did, when he did, what he did. Was he not amazing though?”
“I’m the closest that hip-hop is getting to God. In some situations I¹m like a ghetto Pope.”
“I don’t even listen to rap. My apartment is too nice to listen to rap in. I have to be in a way more grimey environment to turn any rap music on”
“I think white people are allowed to say ‘bling’. They are allowed to say old-school black slang, like ‘hottie’ and ‘homie’.”
“Actually, I do not think that (white people) are allowed to use slang until it is at least a year old. If you say a slang word too early, it’s like you’re trying to be black. So as long as the slang is a little played out, you’re all good.”
For shizzle homedog, this cat is picking up what you’re laying down my brother, just be cool and we’ll kick it, a’ight?
