Kanye West Compares Himself To Michael Jordan…And Hitler

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooMusic MinuteZportzKanye WestJAY-Z

kanye west compares himself to hitler

Why would you EVER invite this comparison under ANY context, Kanye???

During his performance at the Big Chill music festival on Saturday night, Kanye West vented about being misunderstood, and pulled a serious Lars Von Trier.

Here's Kanye's VERY misguided attempt at speaking about how people don't understand him:

"I walk through the hotel and I walk down the street, and people look at me like I'm f**king insane…like I'm Hitler."

"One day the light will shine through and one day people will understand everything I ever did."

And here's Kanye on how he's like Michael Jordan:

"Michael Jordan changed so much in basketball, he took his power to make a difference. It's so much f**king going on in music right now and somebody has to make a f**king difference."

As far as the Michael comment is concerned, wasn't it your Watch the Throne collaborator Jay-Z who first referred to himself as the "Mike Jordan of Recording" in his song Show Me What You Got, Mr. West? Just sayin'!

And as far as the Hitler comment is concerned, we understand that you weren't purposely trying to speak about yourself as being similar to him in a positive light, but you should still know that it's NEVER a good idea to compare yourself to Hitler and/or a Nazi under ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!

    This is nothing. Walk away.
    The critics will rip anything Kanye says.
    Also, I bet even Hitler's brother wouldn't be allowed to compare himself to Hitler. Seriously.
    (Yes, people, Hitler did have a half-brother.)

  2. 2

    Leave it to perez to blow everyting out of proportion. I get what he's trying to say with the Hitler thing.

  3. 3

    He was not comparing himself to Hitler. He said people thought of him as if he was insane like Hitler.

  4. 4

    Shuuuut up. It's clear you're trying to be politically correct, but in this case, he made sense. This post was STOOPID.

  5. 5

    Ummm…to all of those who are in support of Stupid kanye west, I agree with Perez…the analogy is not appropriate….he isn't looked on like he's hHitler…Hitler was despised by half of the world for the genocide he committed Kanye is disliked by a lot of people in the world because he keeps putting his big assed feet in his mouth…He is NOTHING like Michael Jordan…because Michael Jordan was/ still is adorded by Millions…In short Kanye ..people may like your music but they don't like you because you arenot likeable…..maybe you should just have your mouth wired shut againuntil you learn how to think before you speak.

    Sadly focusing on entertainment success usually means shorting your education. If one has a point to make it's usually best to leave Hitler out of it.

    You are blowing the Hitler comment out of proportion.

    In truth it's just Kanye being his usual megalomaniacal self: Hitler had a huge effect on the world. It may have been wholly evil and negative effect, but it was massive. That's how Kanye sees himself, apparently. Someone who is so important and ground breaking that those who see him in a negative light, will inevitably put him on the scale of hitler. Those who see him in a positive light will see him as Michael Jordan, someone who changed a sport.

    I really do enjoy despising Kanye. It's fun and easy.

    If I were to encounter Kanye West, I would certainly stare at him, but my stare wouldn't be similar to one I'd offer Adolph Hitler. My state would be one of complete disbelief that someone as self-centered, pompous, and stupid as Kanye West actually breathes. I can't imagine how he came to delude himself into thinking that he's that talented and that important, but he apparently has and he's just managed to make himself a bigger joke than he already was, and that's pretty damn bad. West isn't fit to sniff the jock of Michael Jordan, but his delusions of adequacy tell him otherwise. He has to lash out because in his teeny mind, that makes him right and the rest of us who are laughing at him (justifiably so) wrong. Under-appreciated? Misunderstood? No, Kanye, we see you just fine. LOL

    What a STOOPID post! Kanye wasn't making a comparison. Love you Perez, but sometimes I wonder what you're on.

    This is one of the more reasonable things that he has ever said in a public forum. He's finally realizing that most people disregard his music because of his public antics.

  12. 12

    I agree with La Garse totally except why do we talk about rappers they have no talent just there ass hanging out, been in jail numerous times and can't sing of even talk right.

  13. 13

    Well, he loves himself equally as much as Hiltler loved himself. Kanye West loves one person on this planet and it is himself. He has no regard for other people or other peoples feelings. He lives on his own planet and I bet he has his house plastered with his own pictures and mirrors so he can look at himself all the time.

  14. 14

    This self-absorbed, pretentious egomaniac is pathetic. The only mark he'll leave on this world is a gravestone, just like the rest of us.

  15. 15

    Re: La Garse
    EXACTLY what I think about you LaFarce

  16. 16

    You need to get a grip… your post is so far off from relating to what he said that it is beyond stupid. People do think of Kayne West as evil, (see.. get the Hitler reference Mario?) And that was his point. And FYI, you or your writers are either completely dumb or are using this quote to piss on him. Either way, You = Ass.

  17. @v@ says – reply to this


    Oh, brother. The minute this guy gets his own head out of his own a*s is the minute he'll realize that it's not all about him, and that they're not actually looking at him nearly as much as he narcissistically assumes.

  18. @v@ says – reply to this


    Further, the degree to which other people 'understand you' = the degree to which YOU attempt to understand other people.

  19. 19

    Is he talking about himself AGAIN! Ppl need to look up all the disorders that are self absorbed and kanya see his pic. Does he not have a cause????? Besides himself! Oh i dont know Africa? Starving mountain kids? Childhood cancer? Oh im sorry, kanya west has hurt feelings! U know what, ppl missunderstand me everyday, but i get the hell over it!. My kids are healthy…so im blessed.
    take a lesson rich boy!

  20. 20

    Ugh, why do people let him speak? It was like 2 years ago man - MOVE ON. No one cares about you!

  21. 21

    what a pile of stinking shit he is.

  22. 22

    your such a moron haha.
    he's saying people look at him like he's hilter because he's
    been such a jackass in the past so now people are judging him
    and giving him these looks as he walks past as they would to hitler.
    your so dumb. seriously. you piss me off.

    Re: ashywashy – Sounds more like paranoia, doesn't it.

  24. 24

    Speilberg's not gonna like this. :/

  25. 25

    OMG! STFU! Who the hell is blogging for you today Mario? They need to be replaced. Those comments made about kanye and Hitler was one of the stupidest things you have ever posted. Jeeeez!

  26. 26

    But on a serious note, did it ever occur to him that people stare at him because he's freaking FAMOUS! You're Kanye Freaking West, of course people are going to stare at you! People tend to stare at famous people, dude. Just ask Rihanna, Britney or even your friends Jay-Z and Beyonce any other major star that walks down the street. It's usually because people are in awe and can't believe the star is actually there and they don't know what to say, they get tongue tied. You're famous, you're gonna get stared at!

  27. 27

    I think you are misreading the quote. There is no COMPARISON to Hitler.
    He is saying that people are giving him insane looks, as if he were Hitler walking down the streets.
    Twisted intention.

  28. 28

    And another thing, people, most likely fans, are probably afraid to approach Kanye on the street or anywhere else because they are afraid he is not going to be a very nice person and jsut blow them off. He should lighten up, smile and just say hi to the people staring and stop looking so angry and serious all the freaking time. It's not that deep, Kanye.

  29. 29

    Oh give me a break. It's music. It's not like he's actually contributing to society. He's so dramatic.

  30. 30

    This guy is an artist. He creates art. He's a lyrical genius. He's an intellectual. He's deep. He's the voice of an entire generation! Oh wait, that's Bob Dylan. Kanye is just a little bitch.

  31. 31

    I think Kanye was simply noting that Michael Jordan famously sports the Hitler mustache in his Hanes commercials….

  32. 32

    can't this west character just die already….

  33. 33

    Yeah….what everyone else said. He CLEARLY does not say he is Hitler.

  34. 34

    Perez, you hypocritical dumbass! All he was saying was that people look at him like he is the worst person on the planet. Maybe next time he should say "People look at me like I am Perez Hilton."

  35. 35

    michael jordan? kanye isn't even wil perdue.
    what is so good about his 'talking' (can't even sing). just another marginally talented rapper. anyone can do it.

  36. 36

    Re: linwoo – Well put.

  37. 37

    WHAT?! Kanye West is being a self-absorbed, offensive, jerk?? NO WAY…
    (Typed with the utmost sarcasm)
    Isn't that what he does for a living everyday….. somehow?
    Not really news, dude.

  38. 38

    Your little judgements on this post are retarded. You're picking at things he never said.

  39. 39

    not surprised, spaz

  40. 40

    Not to be too critical, but my guess is Mr. West doesn't even really know who "Hitler" was. I bet he's never even read a book, much less a book of history. Just because you hear a name bantered about in the news doesn't mean you understand what it means. The public at large puts too much emphasis on what such insignificant people have to say.

  41. @v@ says – reply to this


    He could try smiling, a little wave, or shaking hands and saying 'hey.' Very un-Hitleresque.
    He might even meet someone nice.

  42. 42

    He didn't imply that Hitler was misunderstood. He used Hitler as an example of something/someone people would look at strangely if he walked around. I see nothing wrong with what he said. Its the same as if he said people look at me as if I'm Satan. It just communicates how h feels.

  43. 43

    he isnt comparing himself to hitler
    get a grip!

  44. 44

    I actually saw him at the Big Chill, first he was totally the wrong person to put on at a festival like the Chill, he was late, he had minimal communication with the crowd, seemed not to want to be there at all, said 'i love you london' which is unfortunate as we were 140 odd miles away from london and generally acted like a bit of a pretentious dick. so so unimpressed.

  45. 45

    This guy is such a tool.

  46. 46

    Re: La Garse – I agree completely…lets hope Kanye has paid someone to read this…I doubt that he can do it himself…LOL

  47. 47

    Train Wreck! he was looking for attention and he bombed! Hitler LOL

  48. 48

    He isn't comparing himself to Hilter, he is saying he feels treated like he is. Big difference.

  49. 49

    The title had nothing to do with what he said fuck wit
