Wishing you knew what’s on Kanye’s mind? You’re in luck!
During his one-hour performance at last night’s Adult Swim upfront presentation in New York’s Roseland Ballroom, the man who’ll be the musical guest on this weekend’s Saturday Night Live finale tore into a winding rant that included such gems as “I ain’t doing no mother—-ing SNL skits” and “I drop your baby and you sue me and sh–.”
The meat of his monologue, which Complex managed to grab videos of, had to do with West’s relationship with fame and the press. “I ain’t no motherf—-g celebrity,” he said in a plea to get the paparazzi off his back. “I ain’t running for office.”
Read on below for a fuller account of his rant (hat tip to Complex), as well as a grainy YouTube clip of the affair.
“[I had a friend ask me, ‘Are you gonna go on] SNL and you’re going to do like a skit about the paparazzi and shit and like humanize yourself?’ I ain’t here to apologize to no mother—-ers, man. It ain’t about me humanizing myself. At what point did I become unhuman where I had to turn myself back? Or maybe I was demonized. Or maybe I was treated inhumane and not human in that kind of situation.”
