Quote of the Day

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayQuote of the DayFashion SmashionKanye WestLGBT


"I really think it’s because society tries to dictate the way a guy is supposed to dress and the way a guy is supposed to act, and I refuse to conform. A lot of these dudes would never be accused of being gay just because they all look exactly alike. If people could just realize the amount of mundaneness and followers that lack creativity… I think people’s mentality is like, Only gay people are that creative. And it’s true there are a lot of gay people who are incredible creative minds, but there are straight people who are incredible creative minds—and there’s gay people who can’t dress or create at all, too. Closed-minded gay people probably say they dress 'straight.'"

- Kanye West, on why there’s such a fixation on his sexuality, tells the new issue of Complex

    HE is no fun when he is being deep. I prefer the arrogant Kanye. Loves him.

  2. 2

    I like it, I dont like this guy, but I like this quote…. ;P

  3. 3

    I've been warming up to Kanye lately, and it's because of observations and statements like this.

    So now we'll be bombarded with Kanye crap…sweet jesus

  6. Hole says – reply to this


    He is so gay… Even if he was banging some dude he would still say he wasn't gay…he is lubricating the coming out speech with these testers to see if anyone will like him. He should go away for a couple years….better yet. Permanently

  7. 7

    Kanye, take the elevator way up high in the building. Go to the nearest window and jump. Go to the light … go to the light …

  8. 8

    a few moments of my life that I will NEVER get back

  9. 9

    and the ass kissing begins

  10. 10

    For once, I agree with what he is saying.

  11. @v@ says – reply to this


    A-Ha, Perez. Hence, your hat Saturday night.

  12. 12

    I can't wait for that day that people don't really care is someone is gay or not. It's not big deal people. Let it BE !

  13. 13

    NOW guys, after this statement,what do u think about Kanye West?I'm a 29 year old woman and I say he 's 200% GAY.and maybe more gay than many gays out there.there's no doubt after this.

  14. 14

    yeah, he doesn't conform to any of society's creative standards. for example, he wears massly produced famous and widely accepted as fashionable designer clothing, which is the most original thing in the world. what a starving artist he is. it must be hard being so misunderstood by everyone. how does he make it through the day?

  15. 15

    perez now u are warming up to him huge…… dont do it. u just like him b/c of one night in austin

  16. 16


  17. 17

    I agree with him 100%.

  18. 18

    Who cares if he is gay?

  19. 19

    He's. Gay.

  20. 20

    Kayne, Tom Cruise called and wants his bullshit back.

  21. 21

    Kangay West.

  22. 22

    Re: Dick Gozinya
    I LOL'D.
    Good one.

  23. 23

    umm…ok..so whats your excuse for grammer?
    This guy had to of failed English 101

  24. 24

    amber rose is bald like britney, and i like it!

  25. 25

    Hmmmm, Kanye!
    You might be gay after all…..

  26. 26

    Wow, he actually sounds normal and kind in this…. Not his usual pompous, arrogant shit. Like "I wanna be Elvis."

  27. OSSIM says – reply to this


    What does any of what you just said have to do with you?

  28. OSSIM says – reply to this


    Kanye…your full of shit!

  29. 29

    STFU already…

  30. 30

    I suppose he thinks he's leading the way in creative thinking with his overly produced music and mass produced clothing. Boo hoo….it must be tough being so misunderstood Kanye!

  31. 31

    does anyone still listen to him?? he should really go back to making beats and leave the rapping to the rap artists - can't take the heat, stay the fuck out the kitchen…….

  32. 32

    Re: RobPnMeShouldB – Your such a Moron!! LOL…If you kept up wit billboard, you'd know that his album is one of the best selling ones this year still running on top, YOU IDIOT!!! Facts you hater, facts!

  33. 33

    Why can't Kanye let his stylist be great?
    I see a lot of taking credit on his part but I never see him commend the people who lets say build him a glowing universe behind him so he can yodel like a dying animal.

  34. 34

    Oh please! It's a complete double standard. So men can dress gay and act gay without being gay but when a woman doesn't wear skirts and heels every single day of her life she's a dike? Oh please come out of that closet Kanye.

  35. 35

    I love this kid, he just keeps pushing the envelope. I love the spin that straight people are being discriminated against since only gays can be thought of as creative. Whatever, Kanye, just keep talking, you always make me smile.

  36. 36

    Perez is one of those gays who can't dress. He looks like white trash hillbilly whatever he is wearing.

  37. 37

    philosophical blahblahblah..better from the mouths of kings.

  38. 38

    I have absolutely no interest in his music and from time to time the image he projects turns me off, but USUALLY when he opens his mouth, I find him interesting, intelligent and thought provoking…

  39. 39

    I am sure he will back track and say that he never said that …because that is what douches do.

  40. 40

    Wow. He wasn't being pompous. He actually made sense!

  41. 41

    ok why does he keep dragging his issue about not being gay

  42. 42

    My brother was at One Night in Austin and said Kanye was "f-ing awesome!".

  43. 43

    Wow, now that made no kind of sense. I can't say I'm surprised. Why is he so obsessed with this gay thing lately?

  44. 44

    we all know Kanye West is on the DL! his girlfriend secretly is a man who had surgury! u know maybe she is a girl but i think she strapps that sucker on cause Kanye U know u take it in the backdoor!
    BTW your STYLE SUCKS and YOU MUSIC? SUcks And Blows!

  45. 45

    I completely agree but it is a shame he seems to have the reasoning capabilities of a 15 year old.

  46. 46

    Kanye West isn't gay He's REALLY GAY
    Perez isn't Gay he just thinks he is with such a sheltered life he led before ?????fame??
    MWAH! HAppy Birthday!

  47. 47

    Don't let other people label you.
    Don't let other people try to put you in a box.
    You'll be much happier, trust me.

  48. missB says – reply to this


    i dont think hes gay cuz he dresses a certain way or is creative, he just has that gay feel

  49. 49

    ugh, when is going to just stop talking already?

  50. 50


  51. 51

    it totally makes sense

  52. 52

    regardless of the way he dresses, i think hes gay because he is always whining like a little b*tch, and yes that is coming from a girl.

  53. @v@ says – reply to this


    This is a recycled 'you can't judge a book by it's cover,' or 'things are not always as they seem or appear to be.' At least West is thinking about the inherent oppressiveness and error of putting people into little mental boxes. To take it one step further, a plainly dressed person can have an incredibly fertile mind. Talk to people before judging.

  54. 54


  55. 55

    Whether he is gay or not, who cares!!! AT least he keeps it real, and is not afraid to share his inner stream of crazy consciousness, which ain't so crazy.

  56. 56

    "I really think it’s because society tries to dictate the way a guy is supposed to dress and the way a guy is supposed to act, and I refuse to conform". Really Kanyay?? I think the real reason is you can't conform. You like being feminine, which is totally cool, just don't fool yourself into thinking it's a "manly" thing to do.

  57. 57

    he is gay right?

  58. DaLa says – reply to this


    Oh, pullleeeze… I have gay friends who dress like homeless people. They are not ALL chic and stylish. They're just like the rest of us, some care about fashion, some don't.

  59. 59

    Listen to him haters . . . he is trying to educate all you ignorant rascist homophobes so you can understand his non-conformist ideology. The super rich / super famous are beyond conforming, past stereotypes, in another stratosphere and his message is get over it haters!!

  60. 60

    dear KanFUCK you're a pretentious ass

  61. 61

    Why does that man open his mouth, he has talent but when he says things it makes me loose respect for him.

  62. Laxer says – reply to this


    How very 60's of him.

  63. 63

    Tell me again why anybody is writing down what this guy says?
