Oh, how we wish the Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ cameras were filming him all the time! Coming as a shock to no one anywhere, Kanye West told BBC 1 radio host Zane Lowe in a recent interview that he’s the “number one rock star on the planet.” Um, what? While Kanye’s record-breaking ego is nothing new, this statement seems just a tad over the top, even for Yeezy.
Here’s how it all went down: Kanye sat down with Lowe for an hourlong interview to discuss his music and other business ventures. At some point, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians extra felt it necessary to announce his position at the top of the musical food chain. “Rap is the new rock ‘n’ roll. We the rock stars, and I’m the biggest of all of them. I’m the number one rock star on the planet.” So yeah, THAT happened.
To give Kim Kardashian’s man credit where it’s due, he did point out that he wouldn’t be where he is today – ruling the rock world, obviously – without the influence of Michael Jackson. But even that statement couldn’t be made without a little self-inflicted ego stroking, as West immediately followed it up by saying that he’s surpassed Jackson not just in the entertainment industry, but also in creativity. “I was able to ascend to massive heights,” he said. “And I’ve got to a point that Michael Jackson did not break down. I have reached the glass ceiling, as a creative person, as a celebrity and I’ve been at it for 10 years.”
The interview continued, with Kanye West also proclaiming his successes in the art, fashion and culture. He ends with this humble statement: “I look around and I say, ‘Wait a minute. There’s no one around here in that looks like me. And if they are, they’re quiet as f**k.’ So that means, wait a second—now we’re seriously like, in a civil rights movement.”
Are you even shocked anymore by what comes out of Kanye’s mouth? Comment below and let us know.
