A Brief History Of The Silliest Things Kanye West Has Ever Said

by Jess Commons |

Purveyor of words and speaker of truths, Kanye West has once more opened his mouth and spewed forth a spectacular word vomit.

This time, he was writing an essay in Paper magazine (that’s the one that featured wife Kim in THAT shoot a few months back) when he said: ‘It’s funny that I worked at the Gap in high school, because in my past 15 years it seems like that’s the place I stood in my creative path – to be the gap, the bridge.’ Because Gap the clothing store has all this time been a gateway for artists to break onto the scene. If only more people knew.

Anyways. Here’s some other stupid stuff he’s said.

‘I believe that everyone is a fashion insider, because it’s illegal to be naked.’

Paper magazine, April 2015

‘I am God’s vessel. But my greatest pain in life is that I will never be able to see myself perform live.’

VH1, March 2009

‘If I don’t win, the awards show loses credibility’

MTV Europe Music Awards, 2006

‘I am not a fan of books. I would never want a book’s autograph.’

Reuters, March, 2009

‘I am Warhol! I am the number one most impactful artist of our generation. I am Shakespeare in the flesh. Walt Disney, Nike, Google.’

Sirus XM, November 2013

‘I love Coldplay, and honestly think they are on the same level as the Beatles. In 20 years, people will look back and say, “These guys are more talented than the Beatles.”’

The Sun, 2010

‘I have to dress Kim everyday so she doesn’t embarrass me.’

Twitter, September 2014
