No one is safe when Kanye West takes the mic for an interview these days.

The latest pop culture figures to cross Kanye’s ire include Vogue magazine, model Kate Upton, First Lady Michelle Obama, and the fashion industry in general.

On Power 105’s Breakfast Club, the rapper blazed through a line of questioning, making and breaking his own tangents along the way, and we’ve rounded up the trinity of his most argumentative remarks here:

On the new Marilyn Monroe: “I have a love-hate relationship with the paparazzi, but actually I love them because they are empowering us. They are empowering us over Vanity Fair that want to say that Kate Upton is Marilyn Monroe. Kate Upton ain’t Marilyn Monroe, Kim is Marilyn Monroe.”

On the Obamas: “Don’t nobody care about what Obama wearing…do you care about Vogue? Do you read that? I don’t care what position anybody got. You are either helping me or hurting me.”

On the fashion industry: “You ain’t spent $13 million of your own money trying to empower… We are all slaves, we have all experienced [being pressured]. This is nothing but a moment out of the movie Glory.”
