Kanye West defends Bush, thanks models, pleads ignorance of illuminati
Hey Matt Lauer, Kanye West doesn't need your stinking "Today" show with your sneaky background clips and your annoying questions.
Which is why last night in New York, Kanye was finally able to set the record straight about a number of things -- including that "Today" interview, his concerns about a potentially suicidal George W. Bush and how hard it is to be Kanye. All delivered in the easily digestible, yet UTTERLY NSFW, nine-minute video clip below:
Did I say "easily digestible"? I kind of lied.
And since Kanye is a man who is "very particular" with his words, I'll do him the service of being equally particular. How's this for a start: Kanye West is bat-[bleep] crazy. Or how about this: let's determine which of the following Kanye rant statements is the most bat-[bleep] crazy:
1. Re: Kanye's "Today" interview: "Matt Lauer's not a bad guy I'm sure. But if you're a child that's been abused by your parent or you're a girl being abused by your boyfriend, the greatest win you can ever have is for that person to hit you in public. YOU SEE! I TOLD YOU!"
2. Re: the Taylor Swift incident: "There was no way for me to justify the way people judged me. When you do things like what happened last year, it's a smack in the face to everyone's who's creative. If I wasn't drunk, I would have been on stage longer."
3. Re: The 43rd president: "Everybody wants to use people and and villainize people. Even if you take the concept of George Bush. There is no leader in history that has been villainized in that way and didn't get killed at war or commit suicide. So any man that lives through it deserves one moment of redemption."
4. Re: Calling Bush a racist: "That's not exactly what I wanted to say. I was emotional. But I rode it. Just as Taylor [Swift] never came to my defense in any interview. That's the way I rode the wave of the Bush comment."
5. Re: Thanks: "Thank you for the energy from the streets, from the block, from the reporters, from the fashion designers, from the models -- all the energy from the models -- from the energy of the subway workers to the doorman to the cab driver to the school teacher. That's the energy that you feel right now."
6. Re: In closing: "I can't be your role model, your savior, your anti-Christ. I don't know what the illuminati is. I like clothes and I still like girls, I don't give a [expletive] what you think."
One more -- a bonus for my fellow bloggers out there: "The [expletive] that people write on blogs is a projection of what they're scared about in themselves and now we are mere surfaces of the energy that they are projecting on us."
Now, the last time I used the blog to project my fears on to the surface of Kanye, I had a world of hurt come down on me in the comments section. So I would preemptively, and particularly, like to state that his new album, "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" is incredible. But that doesn't mean he still isn't bat-[bleep] crazy.
Anyhow, since it's pick-on-Kanye Day, let's end with these lovely reenactments of Kanye's Tweets by children:
