We heart his insight!

Kayne West took to his blog to address being rumors that he appointed himself the new King of Pop and the ramifications of such a title.

He says:

I WAS JUST LISTENING TO WENDY WILLIAMS AND HEARD SOME QUOTE ABOUT ME SAYING I'M THE NEW KING OF POP. NOT ONLY DID I NOT SAY THAT, I HAVEN'T SAID ANYTHING. IT MAKES ME FEEL BAD THAT OBVIOUSLY I MADE PEOPLE FEEL THAT I WOULD BE CORNY ENOUGH TO SAY SOMETHING SO WHACK AFTER THE PASSING OF AN IDOL, A LEGEND AND MORE THAN THAT A HUMAN BEING WITH FEELINGS AND FAMILY. IT SCARES ME TO THINK WHAT PEOPLE WILL BELIEVE, WITHOUT EVEN A SOURCE. ANY RANDOM PERSON CAN TYPE SOMETHING ON THE INTERNET AND THEN THE WORLD BELIEVES IT. I DON'T TALK TO PRESS OR DO TV OR DO PROMOTIONS OF ANY SORT. I'VE STOPPED CHASING AND BUYING INTO FAME. FAME IS LIKE CIGARETTES WITH NO SURGEON GENERAL WARNING. IT DESTROYS MOST PEOPLE AS IT DID TO THE TRUE AND ONLY KING OF POP. WE EXPLOIT OURSELVES AND EAT OUR OWN EGOS 'TILL THERE IS NOTHING LEFT. I HAVE A FEELING THAT THIS WON'T BE THE LAST FALSE STATEMENT WITH MY NAME ON IT, BUT THIS WILL BE THE LAST TIME I DEFEND MYSELF. I'M DONE.

Did 'Nye just talk about ego and exploitation on his very public celebrity blog?!

Just checking!

  4. 4

    KANYE GAY FISH….



  5. 5

    Can't stand him, yes, he has had hits, but really—He's Great! No, Not really and I'll be the first to tell him that and his ego—-it bigger then his head, I'm sorry, but to me, he's an average rapper (not singer, he sucks live!).



  6. 6

    i fucking hate kanye…..ha! i feel so much better now!

    What he said is so true.



  8. 8

    Caps lock, a sure sign of intelligence.



  9. 9

    He's a motherfucking gay fish



  10. 10

    Maybe he will come to my house and have an orgy in my motherfucking fish tank



  11. 11

    hmmm i love kanye…&& i dont believe that he said that quote! The only person stupid enough to say something like that is Megan Fox for controversy…so that we could a) get pissed off b) talk about how stupid she is for calling her king..



  12. 12

    Kayne West is the king of the ego!!! loser…. you can not compare yourself with the real King Michael Jackson… stupid Kayne West
    Michael Jackson was, are an will be the King of Pop forever!!!!!!



  13. 13

    no, kanye, what you SAID was that you wanted to be "better than Elvis", you egotistical exploded-head self-absorbed TOOL.



  14. 14

    this is probably one of the smartest post he has.



  15. 15

    LOL who would even consider him the new king of POP??? hahaha to funny! Nobody has come close to be called the King of Pop. It's not JT or Chris Beat-her-down or even Usher. They have to change the game of Pop…..so no worries Kanye! I don't think anyone would have taken that seriously… :)



  16. 16

    love u kanye!!!!!!!!! ur the best



  17. 17

    WHY DOES HE WRITE IN ALL CAPS??? ITS HARD TO READ WHEN THERE IS A LOT OF TEXT AND WE ALL KNOW HE LIKES TO GO ON AND ON AND ON AND ON….

    Someone suggest to him to CHILL on the ALL-CAPS….

  18. m.j says – reply to this


    18

    blah blah blah

    thats all i see when i see all those caps.



  19. 19

    LOVE THE MUSIC. HATE THE MAN.



  20. 20

    Uw gross. He could never be compared to MJ…. He's so ugly, too much of a bully, and asshole and cant sing for shit…



  21. 21

    neverrrr . maybe king of gay fish !



  22. 22

    he may have a big ego but least he believe in himself unlike so many other people who said bad things about other people to make themselves feel better



  23. 23

    can't stand this arrogant dumbass. you better straighten that up boy! you will never be a king. stay in your own world with your brillo pad hair! ha!



  24. 24

    if being a douche bag was an olympic sport, kanye would be the new michael phelps…. that's about as close as he'll get to being "king" of anything.



  25. 25

    WOW seems like that episode of "South Park" really worked on Kanya…fish sticks ha ha



  26. 26

    mmm i love to eat eggos



  27. 27

    Kanye is as dumb as a log. Kanye: (if you can read) third button from the bottom on the left end of your keyboard - that's the Caps Lock button. Turn off the caps you stupid retard.



  28. 28

    That what happen when u act silly, people start believing silly things about you. Compliments ViA Nikki myspace.com/s0flyyy



  29. 29

    That what happen when u act silly, people start believing silly things about you.



  30. 30

    Why must he type in ALL CAPS? Why is he yelling at everyone? Who even wants to bother reading it?



  31. 31

    glad he didnt really say this because if he did I would have LMAO!! He is soooo not even close to being the king of pop. His music isnt that great.



  32. 32

    KANYE IS A TOOL AND A DOUCHEBAG! OH THAT REMINDS ME I HAVE TO GO TO THE STORE.



  33. 33

    JUST GO AWAY…..



  34. 34

    …n dat it exactly y Kanye is hated on…not only is his music great but his lyrical knowledge is on point….luv da blog Kanye…



  35. 35

    Kanye = not great singer. not respectful and everything bad i can say in the book -two tumbs down-
    He can't even be the King of pop, you have to SING pop first.
    & we don't wanna hear him sing cause rappers can't sing.



  36. 36

    I like what he said about Michael Jackson.

  37. C.E.W says – reply to this


    37

    Ha good cause you're only kidding yourself if you think you're even halfway near his standards Kanye.. It's nice to see you can be somewhat humble. People might like you more if you weren't so into yourself… and had better music of course.



  38. 38

    He MUST be kidding! He's soooooo fugly AND sooooo OVER!



  39. 39

    He is such a dumb-ass , he is full of himself .. and yes , he look gay.



  40. 40

    This dumb jive turkey is king of nig-nog, and nothing else. Negro needs to shut his barf-hole.



  41. 41

    First time I didn't think he was a total deuce bag- wow. maybe he is turning over a new leaf, er flipper?



  42. 42

    Kanye said several months ago that he was working on his ever huge ego and he knew he had a problem with it.
    Why is what he saying now a big surprise? He tries to change himself for the better and it still isn't good enough. I wouldn't respond back to the rumors either if I were him. But in this case he almost had to with the stuff being thrown around about MJ right now.

    Kudos Kanye! Keep on doing what your doing. Let the haters fall to the side.



  43. 43

    shut the fuck up Kanye, no one is as full of themself as you. Keep making music though you huge fucking douche bag. Congrats you gay fish.



  44. 44

    Re: jucakataNick

    YOU need to reread his post… he said he NEVER compared himself to MJ…

    So much for stopping rumors when morons can't fully understand wtf they are reading.



  45. 45

    Kanye is the most irritating person Ive ever seen. He needs to get over himself



  46. 46

    This dude is the biggest douche bag. He sucks as a person and as a musician.
    ( if thats what you call him )



  47. 47

    Let us pray that he IS REALLY DONE> I DO NOT WANT TO SEE HIS FUGLY MOUTH EVER ANYWHERE. LET US HOPE HE IS DONE FOREVER. BYE NOW LOSER



  48. 48

    AND IF HE SUCKS SO MUCH,EVERYONE JUMPED TO THIS ENTRY..TO COMMENT.
    HAHA..YOU GUYS ARE THE LOSERS..THIS IS REALITY..AND ALSO ITS 2009..PEOPLE STILL HATE ?.. I MEAN REALLY,ITS NOT CHANGING ANYTHING ABOUT HIM..HE'S STILL GETTING RICHER AND STILL GETTING MORE FAMOUS.



  49. 49

    Scuse me while I puke



  50. 50

    I dont listen to Kayne..nor do I like his style of music..I never really liked him…but….I now have a whole new respect for him! Kudos Kayne!



  51. 51

    Uhh! I hate him! Someone sew his mouth shut so he can't say any more dumb annoying shit!!!! Oh and while were at it cut his fingers off too so he can't type dumb shit either!!!

  52. @v@ says – reply to this


    52

    It only takes a sentence or two to clarify a false story, and it means something to any people on the other end that may have been hurt by it. It's the price of fame, and although he says he's done defending himself, I think it's important to his own integrity that he continues to do it whenever merited. He shouldn't sweat it, and counter the false claims calmly just like this whenever they pop up. It doesn't take much to do this. I'm sure Michael's family will note this and maybe appreciate that Kanye took a moment out to counter it, said white chick.



  53. 53

    this douchebag is such a liar!!! he was on some award show just last year talking about taking elvis' title…or @ least being the next generations elvis!!! so why wouldn't his big ego take him there with mj? this is just another failed attempt to keep his lame ass in the news!!! anyone wanna buy a slightly used college dropout cd? i think that was the last time he had an ounce of sense!!!



  54. 54

    He never was, is not, and never will be. What an attention whore.

  55. Niobe says – reply to this


    55

    Yes, he is arrogant, yes, VERY ANNOYING FOR TYPING IN ALL-CAPS!!, has an overgrown ego….but……where the hell else was he going to dispute this claim but on his blog……did you not do the same….PEREZ….quit judging……..CARAJO..Nuf said.



  56. 56

    Jus cus he is using a "public" forum doesn't mean he is feeding in to any ego bitch tits. He is clearly defending his name….it's what anyone would do. I do believe watching a horrible 12 minute long video of shaking tits and tears a almost a month ago….hmmmm….Ego?



  57. 57

    Funny…how everytime I post a negative comment bout bitch titties…it vanishes like a plate full of long johns?



  58. 58

    god you are such an asshole Perez or his sister…probably Perez on this one, am sure she sticks to what she knows…beating up on girls



  59. 59

    I believe Kanye did NOT say that. Kanye should be mad that make believe quotes get published. He should sue the magazine that published that quote. I think it's unfair that they do that just to sell their magazines. We normal nonfamous people would be PIST if rumors got published at our jobs RIGHT?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? Imagine going to work and there in black in white is some lame fake quote like, "Sheila should not get the promotion because she is fat and ugly" We too would be pist.



  60. 60

    Hey all you Kanye haters…….. read it carefully!!! He said he NEVER said that!
    Are you all stupid and cant read?????????? reading your comments tells me that you are…….. Sooooo sad! go to college or something!



  61. 61

    ugh kanye will NEVER be anything but a prick



  62. 62

    He said it. He sucks at backtracking. Oh, and he definitely IS that corny and wack. Maybe if he felt secure in himself enough to leave the caps lock off I'd think different. But you know what? Fuck Kanye. Seriously. He thinks he's better than everyone, he'd blaspheme a hundred music legends in half a minute if he felt like he could get away with it.



  63. 63

    Fuck that asshole! It sounds JUST like something he would say!



  64. 64

    Love you Kanye!



  65. 65

    No wonder some people believed it, he's been known to say arrogant stuff before… he's full of it.



  66. 66

    Yet here he is, "doing press" and making statements. Why doesn't he do one better and just go away all together if he's so over it.



  67. 67

    he still is a douche.



  68. 68

    kanye youre good, youre not that good



  69. 69

    PEREZ sersly kanye is jus being honest people like you are stupid and actually belive THE MEDIA wen its obviousley not true most of the time



  70. 70

    Shut Up and GO AWAY!!!!!!!! A$$



  71. 71

    Dammit! I got so worked up thinking about how stupid you are that I forgot to make my original point!

    You said: "Kayne West took to his blog to address being rumors that he appointed himself the new King of Pop and the ramifications of such a title. "

    Kayne? Kayne? KAYNE???? You can't even get his NAME



  72. 72

    He doesn't have to worry about it because he never will be considered it. It takes more than just attitude to be the best.



  73. 73

    what set Michael Jackson apart from other artists is that no matter where you are from or how much money you have you will stop to listen to HIS SONG,

    Kanye West isnt even POP, he is RAP and not every one likes rap, i myself can barely stand it



  74. 74

    i thought kanye is a Rapper when did he do pop….if you call using singing into a system to make you sound nice is pop well then what happen to the music world…i agree with him even though his the biggest ass that ever lived ..i appreciate people like him



  75. 75

    I don't know where that statement came from but uhhhh No one besides Michael Jackson will be the King of Pop.
