Kanye West knows how to make headlines. Since the moment he returned to Twitter and professed his love for Donald Trump, ‘Ye has been going on a media blitz and appears to be attempting to out-crazy his most recent appearance every time he is in front of the camera. Most recently, Kanye caught some heat with his controversial comments about slavery. If you ask Kanye, slavery was a choice.
That comment led to plenty of backlash and criticism on social media, with many wondering just how far Kanye is willing to go in a desperate attempt to promote his upcoming album.
Nothing seems to be off-limits, and Kanye is relishing in the fact that the spotlight is back on him.
But with Kanye back in the public eye, it means we need to continue bracing ourselves for the wacky nonsense that is going to be flying out of his mouth. By now, we should all be used to it, but it’s going to be interesting to see what foolishness Kanye says or tweets out next to be added to his list of greatest hits.
Here are some of the craziest things that Kanye has said throughout the years.
“I hate when I’m on a flight and I wake up with a water bottle next to me. Like, oh great, now I gotta be responsible for this water bottle.”
“I think I do myself a disservice by comparing myself to Steve Jobs and Walt Disney and human beings that we’ve seen before. It should be more like Willy Wonka… and welcome to my chocolate factory.”
“George Bush doesn’t care about black people.”
“I’m going to be the Tupac of clothing.”
“I don’t even listen to rap. My apartment is too nice to listen to rap in.
“Yo Taylor, I’m really happy for you, I’ll let you finish, but Beyoncé has one of the best videos of all time. One of the best videos of all time!”
“Would you believe in what you believe in if you were the only one who believed it?”
“Just imagine if I woke up one day and I was wack. What would I do then?”
“My greatest pain in life is that I will never be able to see myself perform live.”
“Slavery sounds like a choice.”
He added, “When you hear about slavery for 400 years … like, you was there for 400 years and it’s all of y’all?! It’s like we’re mentally in prison.”
