Kanye West Talks About That Jimmy Kimmel Moment: "what Have I Do

That's the discussion. It's not about race relations or a relic's true meaning. It's not about whether a group can co-opt a pejorative of which they've historically been the butt and make it their own, much like the gay community did with "queer" or African-Americans did with the n-word. No, the conversation is about West and that flag. The rapper thrust himself into the spotlight, yet again, with news that several pieces of merchandise from his Yeezus tour are emblazoned with the controversial Southern Cross. At his tour store in Los Angeles, a replica of the flag is affixed to the wall with red tape and adorned with the words, "I ain't coming down." Twitter exploded after word got out, and while West saw some support, including a fellow who called him a "pro-black genius," others called him a disgrace. <br>Source:

Defiant: Kanye West believes his actions at the MTV Video Music Awards were entirely justified (WENN) "There's a lot of times in life where we're being held back on purpose," he said. "The moment people hate me the most for, at the awards show, that was inaccurate! "Whether it was a plan to give Beyonce the award at the end, we still haven't seen a video as good as that video, like, five years later. There still hasn't been a video that good." Kanye also believes that social media is changing the face of contemporary music. "The kids now have Instagram and can't be controlled by radio and can't be controlled by TV, he said. I love the Backstreet Boys' songs, so if any of them are listening, no knock to them, but there will never be another Backstreet Boys! <br>Source:

You're telling me they don't look at me like the m********** glitch? You're telling me people don't look at Kanye West like the glitch?" Sarah Silverman is the actress who voiced the character to which West is referring and West made sure to voice his admiration for Silverman while ripping Kimmel last month. "SARAH SILVERMAN IS A THOUSAND TIMES FUNNIER THAN YOU AND THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS IT!!!" West tweeted. Guess the man really likes "Wreck-It Ralph."

In a June interview-article from W Magazine, Christopher Bagley wrote, "West goes even further, favorably comparing himself to Le Corbusier, the Beatles, Marlon Brando, Tiger Woods, Azzedine Alaia, Kate Moss, and the Soup Nazi, among others." No soup for us!

The 36-year-old rapper was caught leaving the posh store dressed in jeans, a Yeezus tour T-shirt and coordinating Yeezus jacket with a Confederate flag on the sleeve.

In the interview with the station, West, 36, explained the reasoning behind using the flag - which was click here! adopted by the Southern states as a battle flag during the American Civil War but has come to represent a symbol of racism and hate to many. "React how you want," he said. "Any energy is good energy. You know the Confederate flag represented slavery in a way - that's my abstract take on what I know about it. So I made the song 'New Slaves.' " Last week, West postponed the rest of his "Yeezus" tour after a 60-foot LED screen used during his shows was damaged. <br>Source:

I don't think we should be spoofing this'. "Because after I did the interview I was shaking, still a little bit nervous, like, 'What have I done? What have I opened up? Where is this going to go?' But I had a gut feeling it was going to end positively. "And the fact that he spoofed it, he allowed me to let out everything I wanted to say to this dumb magazine over here or everything I wanted to say to this media outlet that's trying to undermine what it is that I'm doing, how hard it is for me to do it, and where I want to take things. "It's like the gloves are off because we're on equal planes, so it allowed me to go so crazy on him." Yeah, that's how it works. <br>Source:
