Kanye Bites The Hand That Feeds Him

| Filed under: Media MinuteKanye West

kanye1.jpg

Kanye West wasn't joking around last week when at a dinner celebrating Hussein Chalayan he said he wasn't doing interviews anymore.

Fed up with the invasive nature of today's media, Kanye went on a free-style tirade against the press during his performance on Wednesday at the Casio G-Shock party, spitting lines like "I'm sorry I broke your arm/I meant to break your camera."

Funny considering Casio marketed the event as a press conference to be accompanied by a concert. Kanye seems to have a lot of pent up anger toward the press! 

On the one hand, we kind of get it - we're sure it's frustrating as a major icon to have words put in your mouth and have your fans believe it. 

That said, when you pursue a career as a public figure you sort of sign up for this shit. It's the price you pay for the fabu life you live.  The press keeps you current.

After the performance, he stayed true to his word.  When introduced to a reporter, he evaded all questions and instead drew the attention to his lady, model Amber Rose, telling the journo "she just did her first shoot for Ford."

That's cute.  At least he's not being a direct dick!

Still, we wonder, how does he plan to promote his albums?  Or his shoes?  Or all the other things we're sure he'll put out over the next few years? 

He can only hate on the media (to stay in the media) for so long!

    I don't think living a comfortable lifesyle should make a person more deservant of being harassed on a daily basis.

    Can you blame the guy? Like, I'd be sick and tired of cameras in my face all day.. Sometimes you just wanna chill and not have to worry about an unflattering pic being taken of you.. Keep it up Kanye.. I love you man!!

    No one signs up for not being able to move, look at Jess Simpson. No one signs up for people breaking into their homes. No one signs up for not being able to leave someplace, while paps jump on their cars. No one signs up for being sued when a pap damn near lays in the road while blinding a driver and getting hit while standing in the street. No one signs up for people having 500x zoom cameras from a mountaintop a mile away taking intimate pictures of people in their own houses. There's a line and it's starting to get crossed way to often. Marilyn Monroe wasn't even harassed this much and she's arguably one of the most famous of her time, along with the most famewhoring and pap friendly. Only in the last 5 years or so, have paps become so disgustingly intrusive, that it impedes someone's freedom to live. Just because you can (or can't) sing and dance, or you make movies does not give someone the right to walk right into your house and start stealing stuff ala Sarah Jessica Parker…

    Re: SleepingPill_Addict – K Anniegirl.. Enough.. You've been caught.. Give it up.. No one is falling for ur purposefully controversial statements.. Goodbye..

    Wrong Perez! Just because you make your living invading other's privacy doesn't mean that anyone has to accept it. One of your pet peeves is celebrities covering their faces so that the paparazzi can't take thier pictures. Well, get over it. They have every right in the world to stop those photogs. Just because they are famous doesn't give leeches like you the right to invade their space.

    I don't get this guy, it's like he loves living the high life but somehow he keeps forgetting how his ugly ass got there in the first place…

    Kanye does not need the media to write about him and take his picture - he does it himself on his blog kanyeuniversecity.com/blog - then the media can copy and paste what he wrote and the pictures he posted and comment about that - times have changed, Perez



  11. 11

    ya'll act like being a 'celebrity' is something some wise guy came up with as a fricken business strategy. duh. it is an evolution, and it sprung from a long long line of events that eventually led to having to place your face in the goddamn spotlight 24/7. as much as a ton of hollywood celebs live off that sick force and thrive in it, others do it cuz they fricken have to, cuz of those who can't live without all that special attention. (psychopaths)

    Re: BeautifulBrunnette69 – Freedom of speech, look it up. Btw my name isn't annie. No clue who that is nor do I give a shit. The same goes for you.



  13. 13

    Re: SleepingPill_Addict – Actually that is not freedom of speech.. As soon as you violate someone else's rights by your selfish comments, you lose your right.. In this case it's ur racism. You are violating someone else's rights to not be discriminated against, therefore, your freedom of speech in this case is void.. Get ur facts together..

    Re: SleepingPill_Addict – so where is the klan meeting tonight? wtf asshole? as for not giving a shit, you should see a dr about that



  15. 15

    well actually not really, I was at the concert, he was saying that he never meant to cause the pap's harm but the guy was in his face, he knows everyone's gotta get paid but the media have turned it into a frenzy and are trying to bring everyone down, instead of lifting everyone up…

    Re: BeautifulBrunnette69 Coming from someone who lies, whines, and cries about others so called free speech. Oh the irony!!



  22. 22

    Re: SleepingPill_Addict – @4 - Think about it a little more. He's not 'another angry black man.' He's a put upon entertainer/celebrity at wit's end with endless invasive media. Where do you see angry here? Where do you see it about being black, as opposed to it being about being famous? He's intelligently decided that he's going to control it, (invasive media) rather than it controlling him, by denying interviews. These paps can be such morons that sometimes you just have to preserve your sanity.

    I don't blame him. The press have been at him since his Mom passed away.
    He just needs some space. How much can you grieve, really, when you're that busy.



  29. 29

    how is this mediocre rapper an icon again?



  30. 30

    Because, ya see(Rudy) after that whole gay-fish thing he starts watching south park but goes back and watches the old ones first. so what? you ask… well kanye comes across the episode that cartman buys an amusement park and wont let anyone in. people, naturally wanting what they cant have, start flocking to the gates.
    kanye is trying reverse-psychology!



  31. 31

    On a related note, I have a G-Shock Mudman, and I love it. It survives the shower, the rain, scrapes and bashing around, and even my cat who likes th chew on things. Kanye, who's that? People will be saying that after a while, since he doesn't like being interviewed and all. You've heard it, press, so the next event Kanye West goes to, skip it. He's no longer worth your time.



  32. 32

    Don't know what to think of him either…. That goes with the business…



  33. 33

    Gimme a break. This guy is one of the most self-centered, narcissistic, pompous assholes in the entire "entertainment" industry! He's the "voice of our generation". Fuck YOU dipshit! You sure as hell aren't my voice, and you can go shove the paps cameras straight up your own ass where you like them for all I care.
