After being avoided by the 2013 Grammys, Kanye West is apparently trying extra hard to win the award for douche of the year.
The rap mogul has made a series of recent on-stage rants, directing unnecessary hate at some fellow artists and the music industry in general. In the latest, he compared himself to some dearly departed heroes—namely, an abstract expressionist painter, a cartoon virtuoso, and a tech mogul.
Kanye’s bizarre assessment took place during a tour stop in Paris on Monday night.
“No matter how they try to control you, or the motherf***er next to you tries to peer pressure you, you can do what you motherf***ing want,” he hissed over the instrumentation of G.O.O.D. Music’s “Clique.”
Then, he added: “I am Picasso. I’m Walt Disney, I’m Steve Jobs.”
Actually no… You’re Kanye West. You make music and wear skirts on stage…
The comments arrive after the rapper took aim at Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake’s recent collaboration in a similar fashion.
“And I got love for Hov but I ain't f*cking with that ‘Suit & Tie,’” he feign-mused to a London audience on Saturday. Video of the speech was blasted across the Internet earlier this week.
During that spew, Kanye also bashed “business people,” jabbed at longtime rival Taylor Swift, and prodded at what appeared to be Beyoncé’s new Pepsi endorsement.
“Can I sell a drink for you please?” he mouthed. “So you can help me put on a better show. Please corporations.”
Had Kanye not been so crazy to begin with, we’d think all this Kardashian-ing was starting to fry his brain.
