Kanye West talks Taylor Swift, Kimmel, and building his own city

Have you missed the dulcet tones of Yeezy opining for the last 24 hours? Never fear; the rapper stumbled upon yet another audible mic yesterday, delivering a full 30 minutes of non sequitur speech glory during an interview with Los Angeles’ 97.1 AMP Radio.

If we’ve learned anything from his past monologues, it is that a Kanye rant follows no logical order — though it will reference Paris haute couture and Kim Kardashian at least once.

In one of many moments of hyper self-awareness, West stalled a scheduled game of word association in order to explain the rant as an art form: “Rant has a negative connotation,” he said. “And these are inspirational, visionary, breaks in pop culture. Every time I talk, it is a crack in the matrix. When I wake up, ‘cause nobody’s gonna fire me tomorrow, so I can say anything I want to say. And luckily, I want to say positive things. And I want to make my mama happy, and I want to do God’s work.”

It turns out, he also still has thoughts on his infamous Taylor Swift 2009 VMAs Episode Interruptus: “We still haven’t seen a video as good as that video. Like five years later, we still haven’t seen a video that good,” referring to Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies.” Oh and that Jimmy Kimmel feud? West wanted to clear the air about calling himself a “creative genius:” “But that’s just my title,” he said. “I don’t know any other way to explain what I do.” READ FULL STORY

Kanye West talks Jay Z, Jesus, Arsenio and more at Las Vegas show -- watch the video

Sweet baby Yeezus! Kanye West delivered his latest rant via sermon at his Las Vegas concert on Friday.

“What fun is life if you don’t talk sh–t right?” West asked his congregation—err, audience—at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. “‘Cause everybody gon’ talk shit to you, right? Anybody gonna tell you what you can, you can’t do, right?” he continued, while wearing typical priestly vestments of an oversized trenchcoat, fencing mask, and neon orange sneakers.

In a nearly ten minute long monologue, complete with piano accompaniment and and a glaring spotlight, West delivered a diatribe referencing old standby subjects including but not limited to: haters, Arsenio Hall, Paris fashion week seating arrangements, and Jesus. West even joined in on the Barneys’ racial profiling allegations, saying, “It’s that rich n—er racism!” before breaking into a sprint onstage. Looking equal parts Joel Osteen and beekeeper, he also compared his Yeezus persona to a high self esteem drug and explained his Chosen One association: “And when I say I am a god, it’s because I believe that God is inside of all of us.”

This may not be exactly what the guys in Rage Against the Machine had in mind.

Dave Mustaine, the temperamental Megadeth frontman who was fired from Metallica in 1983, has found an unlikely target for his ire: Men’s Wearhouse. On Dec. 28, he posted a message on the band’s Facebook wall lambasting the retailer for poor service over the holidays. A gift card that he ordered for his tour manager, he says, was not delivered within the guaranteed two days.
