"So do you agree with Kanye that it was a travesty that Beck won instead of Beyonce? Do you think that by selecting Morning Phase as the album of the year over whatever Beyonce's album is called, it was "diminishing art and not respecting the craft and smacking people in their face after they deliver monumental feats of music, you're disrespectful to inspiration,"? Is that what all the music critics think of Morning Phase winning album of the year? Is that what they've been talking about for the last 25 years? When albums like Morning Phase win over pop-albums like Beyonce's?"


I think that Beyoncé had the better album and deserved to win, but I'd never call it a travesty. I also don't have the platform or the ego to do what Kanye did.

Kanye is the king of hyperbole, nobody is disputing that, and he has kind of a weird obsession with her winning and/or losing

the heart of the issue is that the academy went with the safe, quiet choice over an album that's important for a few different reasons

I don't get beyonce at all, but then again I don't really get kanye's hype either. Just personal opinions though.

I will give Beyonce credit for releasing an album and not whoring it out before hand. That's some kvlt shit right there. Whats so great about the production and the songs? I read a little bit about it being incredibly personal and a weird take on feminism but I haven't listened to it myself. Got too many MOON tapes to listen to

she released it with zero promotion beforehand, with a short film/video for every track, and sold 5 million copies, a number that is extremely high in the current landscape of record sales

"When I said that thing about respect artistry, I think it came off the wrong way, and that was a mis-wording on my part because obviously Beck is one the most respected artists and respects artistry"


Beck is one of the nicest guys and one of the most respected musicians in the game. So, there’s nothing that I will want to do as a fellow musician to disrespect him in any way.

Quote :
""I sat there and I kind of let that [smolder] and I was asked my opinion and I was given a platform. And when given a platform, it’s very hard as we know — and I’m going to talk in third person like I’m a crazy person — but it’s very hard for Kanye West to not be very true and vocal to what he feels. You know, it’s like people take the Grammys for granted in a way because of the commercials, because a lot of the musicians are very rich and everything, but this is our Super Bowl. You know, and someone’s got to be mad that [Marshawn Lynch] didn’t get the ball," he said."


Quote :
""You know, I felt like just the whole Grammys, right when that happened, everybody was looking at me and then people started screaming, 'Kanye! Kanye! Go do it!' Okay, that didn't really happen, these were voices in my head. So the voices in my head told me go and then I just walked up like halfway up the stage,""

Quote :
"Your BMW Won't Bring You Happiness

"It feels like people do everything in life to get this BMW, this Benz, to get this townhome, to get 2.5 kids exactly. One of them has to be small, y'know!

"And you're looking for this moment where you sit in your BMW after all the work you've done and all the accolades you get, and you somehow think you're gonna get that level of joy that my daughter had when she received those [toy] wolves [from artist Vanessa Beecroft]. And when you're sitting in traffic in your BMW, it's something that feels empty. To everyone who reaches that point. This concept of the selfish human, this idea of separation by race, or gender, or religion, or age, or my favorite thing to hate, class."
Neither Will a $5,000 Sweater

"It's illegal to not wear clothes, and also possibly too cold. That means someone is imposing an idea on you that should legally have to do! Clothing should be like food. There should never be a $5000 sweater. You know what should cost $5000? A car should be $5000. And you know who should work on the car? The people that work on the $500,000 cars. All the best talent in the world needs to work for the people. And I am so fucking serious about this concept that I will stand in front of anyone and fight for it. Because I was 14 and middle class. I know what it felt like to not get what I have."
Actually, Time Is The Most Important Thing

Time is the only luxury. It's the only thing you can't get back. If you lose your luggage – I'm not gonna say the obvious brand of luggage that I'd normally say because I've got a meeting with them soon – if you lose your expensive luggage at the airport, you can get that back. You can't get the time back.
The Matrix Is Like the Bible

The Matrix is like the Bible of the post-information age.

"I compared it like, when the hundred guys come at Neo, those are opinions, that's perception, that's tradition. Attacking people from every which angle possible. If you have a focus wide and master senseis like Laurence Fishburne and you have a squad behind you, you literally can put the world in slow motion.
[Digression about Steve Jobs, and Kanye's personal friend Elon Musk]

Why do I say the Matrix is like the Bible? What is my definition of the Matrix?
[He didn't finish this thought.]

Kanye's Ego Is Huge... But Not That Huge

One of my biggest Achilles heels has been my ego. And if I, Kanye West, the very person, can remove my ego, I think there's hope for everyone.

One of the most memorable things about MBDTF was Nicki Minaj, and the fact that she kicked my ass, on my own song, on one of the best albums… the best album – I'm just saying what the critics said – of the last 25 years. The best album of the past 25 years that I spent a year and a half making, out there. I was exiled from my country, it was a personal exile, but exile. To come back and deliver my magnum opus of a work, and to be outshined…to be beat by a girl, basically.

"This was necessary. I think it was one of the most important points of working on that album, was to not stop her from her moment because of how good she is.
Just Kidding, It's Pretty Big

"There's a Bible saying, 'No weapon formed against me shall prosper'. Recently I've been doing interviews and I've had to go back to this verse because I don't think there's a living celebrity with more weapons formed against them, but I also don't think there's one more prosperous.
Kanye Wanted to Be the Next Picasso

"My goal, if I was going to do art, fine art, would have been to become Picasso or greater.

"That always sounds so funny to people, comparing yourself to someone in the past that has done so much, and in your life you're not even allowed to think that you can do as much. That's a mentality that suppresses humanity.
That's All

"People say to me 'you're successful, what are you crying about?'. I'm crying about the people. I'm crying about their daughters. Our daughters, as one family. What good is it. What good is anything that everyone can't have. Every ism. They think we're done with racism. What about elitism, what about separatism, what about classism? That's all.""

Could Kayne be any more insecure? I don't like him one bit, but it's hard to ignore that has at least some talent. Dude married Kim fucking Kardashian. How sad it that? Couldn't he do any better?
