Kanye Tired of Being Misquoted?


You can't twist his words if he doesn't say anything. A member of the press walked up to Kanye West at a cocktail party and proceeded to hold an entire conservation with him even though Kanye never said a word in response...

From New York  Magazine
Last night, at the opening for George Condo's exhibit "Mental States" at the New Museum, we'd just asked the artist — who recently painted the covers for Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy — if there were another musician he'd consider designing album artwork for ("Jimi Hendrix, but he's not around anymore"), when we were suddenly joined by Kanye himself. The newly humble rapper granted us a brief but thoughtful interview.

Are you happy with the paintings George did of you?

[Kanye nods head yes.]

You are happy?
[Nods head.]

Would you make any changes if you were to do a self-portrait?
[Shakes head no.]

Are you mute tonight?

[Nods head.]

Do you want to do sign language?

[Nods head. Pretends to sign, then shakes our hand and walks away.]

I...actually kind of feel sorry for him.

RihannaStan said...

I feel sorry for him too. The death of his mother really messed him up & that's still obvious til this day.

Imagining this "interview" did have me cracking up though, L0L.

i agree with you both, it is such a sad sight to see. he is a tormented, and all this criticism is very hard on him i'm sure. I wish he had real friends around him to see him through these hard times. I hope he does not do anything drastic.

Aint no need in being mute now, nigga. You've been running your mouth and acting an ass all this time. Don't get quiet now.

I say stay mute and watch The Gaye Family on youtube.

I don't feel sorry for him. There are millions of other people to feel sorry for:
Homeless people
Jobless people
The people in Arizona who need organ transplants and can't afford them The guy with the "golden voice" who is unfortunately addicted to alcohol and now missing
The woman who was just reunited with her family after being abducted as a newborn
The woman down the street who lost her son to gang violence

I could go on and on, but Kanye's millionaire, talking too much, coon-ass will never make the list. I don't feel sorry for people who have a roof over their heads, food to eat, clothes on their backs and enough money to employ a small city. Yes, the tragic way he lost his mother is sad, but people lose their loved ones everyday and don't act like assholes. He can actually afford therapy, so maybe he should invest in some. That's all...

Cosign to the 9th power!!!

I don't think I can feel sorry for ol boy. He created those piles of shit he's been stepping in for years now. If he wants to make a REAL "silent" statement, he should leave the public eye ALTOGETHER because the world is not gonna fall apart in his absense.

We can press on without him.

Are you a narcissitic 20/20 hindsight house nigga?
[Nods head, flashes "The Roc", and walks away proudly]

If he talks he's screwed, if he's silent he's screwed. Any game he plays he loses when it comes to media coverage.

LMAO @12:52 and beegee and 11:09 I'm so glad someone sees things the way I do. @D W3rst agreed.

poor lil precious thang, at least he's the best dressed metro black man in the world.



he one lame bitch!!

LOL I know what kinda "sign language" he wanted to give the reporter. Kanye doesnt seem all there. Hopefully he learns from all this bullshit he is putting himself through and does some growing up. HE should take a month off and go somewhere where poverty is everywhere and nobody cares if your album went platinum.

Why yall still wondering about why he is still suffering from the loss of his mother??????????


The nigga KNOWS that she was his BLOOD SACRIFICE!!!!

THIS IS WHY he is still tormented day and night, and if he continues to follow jayz, egyptian false gods, illuminati agendas, etc HE WILL CONTINUE TO SUFFER AND PROBABLY KILL HISSELF.

The guilty conscience of him killing his mom IS THE SAME EXACT GUITY CONSCIENCE THAT P.Shitty has for killing Biggy ( that is why P.Shitty can't keep Biggy's name out of his mouth, because he is tormented also.)

His self centered self is finally doing what he should have figured out a long time ago - ST*U.

Anonymous said...

THE ONLY WAY he will be free of torment is to confess what he did, give away all his ill gained possessions, and call on the Name of the Lord...

BUT ALAS, he won't do it because he ( just like chris brown ) has a lust for "F.A.M.E", and they both have made money their god,so they rather suffer in the public eye, than to go sit quietly somewhere and be free.

The end of pple like that IS NEVER A GOOD ONE. EVER!

GailS said...

He wouldn't have to worry about being misquoted if he kept his mouth shut for a minute or two.

kanye is not as bad off as some people think. he still in the spotlight making hit cd's even though he do some crazy shit. the confusing part is you can tell kanye would rather be with a man. i can tell by the type of women he date lately.

Don said...

Too funny. Reminds me of the time on American Bandstand when Prince did an interview with Dick Clark and, at one point, answered Clark by holding up his fingers.

Hahahaha.

Fo'Real?!?! said...

LMAO @ Yezzy - childish, but funny. Maybe if he kept his mental ass off twitter and thought before he speaks (or types) he wouldn't have to resort to tricks such as these...smdh..

Posting from my blackberry for awhile - on the west coast for a hot minute visiting fam.

Ye is doing the things Jay Z wants him to do. Ye is being used and is eating out of Jay Z's crusty booty hole. Camel Face is taking advantage of this man. Ye dug this hole with all of the arrogance that he has.

Anonymous said...

I aint mad at his answers, see if the media can twist that shit and spin it. more celebs need to do them that way. funny how when he refused everybody got all these fake ass therapy answers for him. He aint my fav, But I don't take him seriously or dislike him either. Keep them guessing man!

@12:52 oh shit I spit out my coffee lol. Just goes to show how dumb some of this shit is. Kanye is entertaining to me and I really like the cd and videos.

He has always been off.

He's a fag.....and I don't mean a homosexual as that would be offensive to them, just a fucking fag.

LoudGirl said...

he really needs a mental check up... Kanye's attitude is getting worse.... No wonder with friends like beyawnce and the camel I would be mentally disturbed too... Poor little Illuminati puppet

Then STFU!

Arod said...

Yea,he makes up for it on twitter.had to unfollow his ass the other day.

Anonymous said...

All that power and ya'll don't even see it. He basically reminded the Media, that minus his prescense they (when the focus is on him) ain't shit! The reporter got played like a monkey and a music box, Kan-Yeezy basically exposed the true whores of entertainment, those that prop up the bullshit in the first place, bunch of fucking stans with a microphone thinking they the star LOL tha man showin ya'll how crazy shit iz! stop hatin the brother ya'll know he good for the music, shit props due muthafuckers!

Love Kanye!! He does ish on his own terms. I'm not mad at him. At the end of the day, he's still PLATINUM STATUS. The End

Anonymous said...

@4:11 Jim Morrison and Jimi Hendrix were Platinum status too and look what happened to them: The End.

Anonymous said...

@6:58 Wow! Had to dig that far back huh? I don't even get the comparison. Not talking in an interview or even talking too dayum much hardly compares to dying of a drug overdose. Or did you even know that's how they died? Ride the wave and live a happy life (NOT using drugs 6:58, so as not to confuse you further). If you did, I'm almost POSITIVE you won't even care what Kanye's doing. Rather, hate on him for what he's doing. Life is short ya'll RIDE HARD and have fun doing it.
Btw, if he IS a druggie like the two you named are, you might be right.
